“Vitamin C is associated with many metabolic processes. Among other things, it is needed for the healthy development of connective tissue (collagen), skin, cartilage, bones and teeth. Vitamin C also has an antioxidant effect, i.e. it intercepts harmful compounds such as free radicals and thus protects the cells and molecules in the body from damage. It improves the utilization of iron from vegetable foods and inhibits the formation of cancer-causing nitrosamines”./p>
