Good question. Why should you take it and what is the point of taking Vitamin C and how do you know it is Organic Vitamin C.
Most people take it when they think they might be agetting a cold and they take Vitamin C drinks and supplements to boost their immune system, but there are other things this vitamin can do for you.
Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is abundant in vegetables and fruits. A water-soluble vitamin and powerful antioxidant, it helps the body form and maintain connective tissue, including bones, blood vessels, and skin. Taking this for your skin is something a lot of people are aware of. You can get creams and masks for your skin which looks amazing when you use it.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, which means your body doesn’t store it. Unlike most other mammals, humans do not have the ability to make vitamin C, which means you need to consume it via your diet.
