Vitamin C Rich Foods for Patient Education


While every nutrient is important, Vitamin C is critical for almost every aspect of your well-being. It is needed for the growth and repair of body tissue, to produce collagen, which is needed for the skin, ligaments, tendons and even blood vessels. This vitamin is also important for wound healing and for your dental and skeletal health. Low levels of the vitamin are associated with several health conditions including hypertension, strokes, atherosclerosis and even some forms of cancer. As a water-soluble vitamin, it can't be stored in the body but must be replenished through your diet.
