Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that promotes the healing of wounds, bone fractures, bruises, hemorrhages and bleeding gums, and forms a protective barrier between infections or disease and the surrounding healthy tissues. It is also helpful with allergies, stress and may increase immune response.
