Vitamin C is found in citrus fruits and green vegetables. Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant. Even in small amounts Vitamin C can protect indispensable molecules in the body, such as proteins, lipids (fats), carbohydrates, and nucleic acids from damage by free radicals. In addition to scavenging free radicals in the body, Vitamin C protects tissues from oxidative stress. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron. Furthermore, Vitamin C is vital for the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth. Severe Vitamin C deficiency was known for many centuries as the potentially fatal disease, scurvy. Today, scurvy is rare in developed countries because it can be prevented by as little as 10 mg of Vitamin C daily.
