Caption: Polarised light micrograph of crystals of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C. Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin and plays an essential role in the activity of many enzymes within the human body. It is important for the growth and maintenance of healthy bones, gums, teeth, ligaments and blood vessels. It is also involved in the production of neurotransmitters and in the stimulation of the immune system against infections. The main dietary sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits and green vegetables. Severe deficiency of vitamin C leads to scurvy, characterised by swollen bleeding gums and anaemia. Magnification: x10 at 6x7cm size.
