Vitamin C is a substance without which our body cannot function normally (in extreme deficiency it would even die), but it cannot create it on its own. He must therefore receive it from outside. The source of vitamin C is food or nutritional supplements.
The vitamin C deficiency disease is called scurvy and is manifested by bleeding gums, tooth loss, and softening of the bones. If vitamin C is not given, the body will die. The disease was once mainly caused by sailors. Legend has it that Columbus sailors were cured of the disease by the citrus fruits they found when they discovered America.
So if we look at the manifestations of scurvy, it will tell us what vitamin C is needed for.
