The water soluble vitamins should be replaced each and every day in your body. Otherwise there are high chances of vitamin deficiency in your body. Vitamin C is the main source to form collagen in your body. Collagen is the basis of your tissues. Collagens are needed for the formation of the heart, tendon, skin, bones, teeth etc. Another reason behind the importance of vitamin C is that it helps your body to absorb the required amount of iron from the natural foods. <br />
  5. 5. The four most noted functions that vitamin C affect are:<br />ANTIOXIDANT ACTIVITY<br />When vitamin C is digested, it becomes a water soluble antioxidant. Because it is in the water soluble state, vitamin C can directly affect the free radicals in the body. Free radicals are molecules located in the body which are highly reactive, and known for causing tissue damage. They are also notoriously known for inducing oxidative damage to the inner body, advancing the aging process, and can also cause cancer.<br />What is the function of vitamin c for our bodies ??<br />
  6. 6. 2. Collagen SynthesisCollagen is the essential part of connective tissue. Connective tissue is needed to keep the body together, and is the very framework of the body - the skin, bones, teeth, blood vessels, cartilage, tendons and ligaments - all rely on collagen.<br />The Cardiovascular System<br />Furthermore, vitamin C is vital for the cardiovascular system. When the body's arteries become clogged, there isn't enough blood flow to the heart which results in a heart attack. Vitamin C's antioxidant properties are absorbed into the blood stream, and can actually repress the accumulation of arterial plaque.Vitamin C can be thought of as a type of "Drain-o" forarteries. It cleans the arteries, and enables a healthy flow of blood to the heart.<br />
  7. 7. The Immune System<br />Finally, vitamin C impacts the immune system. The immune system main operation is to protect the body from foreign substances or toxins. For the immune system to function correctly, vitamin C is a must. Vitamin C is extremely important in this function because it is involved with T-cells and white blood cells. The white blood cells function is basically to monitor various disease conditions. Because vitamin C boosts the white blood cell count, an individual who consumes high doses of vitamin C has a less likely chance of contracting diseases.<br />
