Out of all the vitamins and minerals we know we need to be well, vitamin C is one that springs immediately to mind for a lot of us. How many of us have reached for an Emergen-C at the first sign of the sniffles to ward off whatever bug is going around, or try to take it preventatively to avoid the cough your little one brought home? How many schoolchildren have learned about sailors using citrus to combat rampant scurvy upon the historical high seas? As far as vitamins go, it’s a big one. It may not be a cure-all, but nutrition experts are keenly aware of vitamin C’s lengthy list of health benefits, from skin care to boosting immune response–and more benefits possibly on the horizon.
What is Vitamin C?
Known scientifically as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is a nutrient found in many plant foods, and is essential for the human body’s production of collagen needed to heal injuries and some neurotransmitters.  It’s also an antioxidant, which helps to combat free radicals and pollutants from damaging cells (think of secondhand cigarette smoke, urban smog, etc.) While a few foods derived from animals contain ascorbic acid, it’s most often found in fruits and vegetables–most notably citrus fruits. Other good sources of vitamin C include tropical fruits, winter squash, peppers, berries, and dark leafy greens.  Most people meet their daily requirements through a balanced diet containing fresh produce, but there is a very high threshold for vitamin C to become toxic, allowing people to safely supplement their daily dose either orally or via a topical serum to combat early signs of aging, wrinkles, etc. Unlike some other groups of vitamins, however, there are significant numbers of people who can have a difficult time retaining the vitamin C they need; this includes people experiencing diseases or cancer, smokers, and people with a limited diet for one reason or another. 
The Importance of Vitamin C for Your Health
With vitamin C being an absolute powerhouse of a nutrient, it’s a no-brainer to integrate it into Kinetik’s special formula to give you a healthy boost. Nanobites, alongside B-Complex vitamins, contains vitamin C to help unlock the potential benefit of these monumental vitamins working in unison.
Lack of vitamin C in the diet has been linked to stress-related disease, and since ascorbic acid is particularly reactive to stress in the body, medical officials believe it could be an ideal indicator in the blood of a person’s overall health profile.
Medical experts agree that vitamin C is not only important for maintaining health, but could also be useful in preventing serious disease and stroke. Research, moreover, continues to examine the multidimensional benefits of vitamin supplementation and interaction with other compounds, continually lengthening the list of what this vitamin can do, and especially how it acts as a protective agent for our health.  For now, one thing is clear: vitamin C is one of the most promising and effective nutrients at our disposal–making an excellent supplement for any lifestyle or health goal.
