Benefits of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient in our diet. It has many important roles our body’s immune function, including:

Vitamin C deficiency can lead to scurvy. Characteristic symptoms of vitamin C deficiency include:

Today, scurvy is rare in developed countries. It’s most likely to occur in people who:
