From the Manufacturer:
Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system.** Vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint health.** Vitamin C is needed for amino acid metabolism and the utilization of many nutrients such as folic acid and iron.* It is also a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species generated during normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors.**
