Vitamin C

As an antioxidant, it helps defend cells from the effects of smoke, pollution and other highly reactive substances called free radicals.

Vitamin C helps in healing, in production of red blood cells, preventing hemorrhaging and in fighting bacterial infections. Physical stress increases the need for vitamin C.

Vitamin C can be found in fresh fruits (especially citrus) and berries, green vegetables, onions, tomatoes, radishes and rose hips.
