Vitamin C is an essential part of our diets. Essential for tissue growth and repair, the formation of collagen, adrenal gland function and healthy gums.
Recent studies have found that Vitamin C and vitamin E work together synergistically, that is, when they work together they have a greater effect then they otherwise would on their own. For instance, Vitamin E scavenges for the dangerous oxygen radicals in the cell membrane, while Vitamin C breaks the free radical chain in the biologic fluids.
