Jigsaw Health Vitamin C With SRT

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Water-soluble vitamins cannot be stored in the body, meaning the body must have a continuous stream of this nutrient to maintain necessary levels for optimal health. Unlike most mammals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet or through a vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C is found in a variety of fruits and vegetables, however, larger amounts of this nutrient (greater than what can be obtained though food alone) can have wide-ranging health benefits.
