Humans are one of the few species (apes and guinea pigs are the others) that cannot manufacture Vitamin C, and therefore must obtain it from their diet and/or nutritional supplements. It is water soluble and is stored throughout the body, with the highest concentrations in the adrenal glands. Vitamin C has many health benefits, but its probably best known as a cell protector, a powerful antioxidant and for supporting healthy immune function. It is a highly versatile and health-enhancing nutrient that is active throughout the the body.
