Caption: Vitamin C. Artwork based on a polarised light micrograph of crystals of ascorbic acid, or vitamin C. It is a water soluble vitamin and plays an essential role in the activity of many enzymes in the human body. It is important for the growth and maintenance of healthy bones, gums, teeth, ligaments and blood vessels. The main dietary sources of vitamin C are citrus fruits and green vegetables. Severe deficiency of vitamin C leads to scurvy, which involves bleeding gums, muscle and joint pain, and increased susceptibility to disease.
