When Capsules Are Preferred
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an important antioxidant that supports optimum health. Because it is water-soluble, the body cannot store the vitamin so you must be certain to get enough daily. Vitamin C is a critical component of both basic body building functions and disease prevention. It is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body and supplementation is especially important when under physical and emotional stress.
