C - VITA
Vitamin - C is an essential co-enzyme for collagen formation,
tissue repair and synthesis of lipids and proteins. It acts both as a
reducing agent and as antioxidant. It is necessary for
many physiologic functions e.g. metabolism of iron,
carbohydrate and folic acid, resistance to infection, cellular
respiration and preservation of blood vessel integrity.
- Vitamin - C plays a capital role in the formulation of bones,
teeth and connective tissue, and in maintaining the natural
defenses of body against cold and influenza. During normal
times, the daily Vitamin - C requirements are covered by
a balanced diet. A supplementary supply of Vitamin C is
justified during periods of increased requirements.
