Vitamin C

The Immune and Repair Booster

Also known as ascorbate or ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin found in foods, predominantly fruit and vegetables. It’s many benefits include the growth and repair of bones, skin and blood vessels.

The Science Bit

Vitamin C is known for its immune boosting properties. It plays a crucial role in the biosynthesis of collagen, L-carnitine, and specific neurotransmitters. It strengthens collagen in the body, which helps skin wounds heal. Because Vitamin C is water soluble, the body does not store it. This means to maintain the levels of vitamin C we need to function, we need to ingest vitamin C daily.

Vitamin C supplements come in three forms; purely synthetic (made by chemical or biochemical processes), synthetic within a nutrient matrix (based on the theory that the natural matrix allows the body to absorb better) or naturally sourced from food.

Pure Organic Vitamin C capsules from The Naked Pharmacy uses dried fruit of Acerola berry as the natural food source, sustainably sourced from the Amazon and combined with a Baobab pre-biotic.
