Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, has many important functions, one of which is to maintain a healthy immune system; acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. People are also exposed to free radicals in the environment from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun. The body also needs vitamin C to make collagen, promotes healing and helps the body absorb iron.
A healthy, balanced diet provides most adults with enough vitamin C, but people with limited diets, as well as smokers and those exposed to secondhand smoke, need more vitamin C.
Fruits and vegetables are the best sources of vitamin C. You can get recommended amounts of vitamin C by eating a variety of foods including the following:
Citrus fruits (such as oranges and grapefruit) and their juices, red and green pepper and kiwifruit.
Other fruits and vegetables such as broccoli, strawberries, cantaloupe, baked potatoes, and tomatoes.
