Vitamin C

Vitamin C is one of the body’s most important antioxidants. Since your body doesn’t manufacture its own vitamin C, the only way to get it is through diet and dietary supplements. Unfortunately, however, about one third of Americans don’t get enough, which is one of the reasons why taking a Vitamin C dietary supplement is so important.
