It is also needed for the formation of collagen, which helps in the normal development and maintenance of connective tissue including skin, bones, cartilage, teeth, and gums.
Vitamin C is not made by the body, nor is it stored in the body because it is water soluble. Excess amounts are eliminated through the urine. For this reason, vitamin C needs to be consumed every day in order to maintain the levels recommended for overall health. Additionally, the body’s need for vitamin C increases during times of stress, such as during high levels of physical activity, illness, antibiotic use, and exposure to toxins such as cigarette smoke.
