Vitamin C is needed for:

for the development and function of the skin, gums, capillaries, teeth, bones,
for normal wound healing,
to increase the body's resistance, to repel spring fatigue and stress,
to reduce the formation of nitrosamines,
to convert folic acid into folates,
for normal brain function,
to affect the synthesis of steroid hormones and the formation of bile acid from cholesterol and to balance blood cholesterol levels,
to increase the absorption of non-heme (i.e. from plant sources) iron.
Vitamin C is easily broken down by temperature, oxygen and light.
That's why it's important to know:
do not store or soak fruits and vegetables in water,
use vegetable cooking liquid,
Store fresh fruit juices in the refrigerator in bulk for no longer than 2-3 days.
Smokers have a higher need for vitamin C than others (30 mg / day more). Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers also need higher amounts (10mg / day more). Vitamin deficiency may manifest as decreased antioxidant capacity, fatigue, and irritability. Long-term vitamin C deficiency can lead to scurvy. Signs of scurvy occur when plasma levels are below 11 nmol / L or total body levels are below 300 mg. Scurvy is an extremely rare condition. Bioavailability is at least 80% for doses of 100 mg or less, 60-70% for doses between 200 and 500 mg and less than 50% for doses above 1000 mg. Large amounts can cause diarrhea and other gastrointestinal disorders, as well as elevated kidney stone formation in susceptible individuals.

The best sources of vitamin C are fruits and vegetables, berries, juice - rosehip, sea buckthorn, paprika, black currants, blackberries, strawberries, citrus, red currants, cabbage, broccoli, leeks, turnips, dill, raspberries, tomatoes, cauliflower.
