Vitamin C and immune system function
The immune system consists of a complex array of organs and cells that work together to help defend the body against infections and certain other health problems.
Vitamin C provides nutritional support for the healthy functioning of the immune system. When illness is present, vitamin C also supports the immune system in fighting it.
Antioxidant properties of vitamin C and zinc
As an antioxidant Vitamin C reduces the formation of free radicals in the body, which may occur as a result of normal cellular metabolism or environmental exposure (e.g. pollution exposure).
