The Importance and Benefits Of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an important Vitamin to be included in your diet as Vitamin C helps with the following:
- Vitamin C helps your body produce collagen
- It is an antioxidant
- Vit C helps absorbs Iron
- It boosts the immune system
- It enhances wound healing 
Vitamin C Deficiency
According to the NHS, England adults aged between 19-64 need around 40mg of Vitamin C a day.  Vitamin C cannot be stored in the body, which means that it is important to include your Vitamin C intake every day. However, many people may lack Vitamin C. Some vitamin C deficiency symptoms include: feeling very tired, feeling weak, mood changes, severe joint or leg pain and your skin bruises easily. 
Natural Vitamin C Sources
To get natural sources of Vit C, there are many natural forms of foods rich in Vit C including: bell peppers, oranges, grapefruit and tomatoes.  Alternatively, you can have natural Vitamin C supplements.
Synthetic vs Natural Vitamin C Supplements
There are many Vitamin C tablets that are on the market. However, it is always difficult to decide what Vitamin C tablets to purchase. One factor that you may consider before purchasing supplements are the ingredients. Some Vitamin C tablets contain synthetic ingredients others contain more natural forms of Vitamin C.
According to studies “Vitamin C uses chemical names like ascorbic acid and is almost certainly synthetic.”  However, studies suggest that your body may react differently to synthetic nutrients compared with natural nutrients found in Vit C tablets.  Experts suggest “synthetic nutrients are unlikely to be used by the body in the same way as their natural counterparts.” This could potentially mean that it may be possible that the body may absorb Natural Vit C supplements quicker than synthetic supplements.  Therefore, supplements with natural and organic whole fruits such as Organic Amla fruit and Organic Guava may be absorbed into the body quicker than synthetic ingredients such as ascorbic acid.
