Caption: Vitamin C. Molecular model of vitamin C on a sliced orange. Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (grey), hydrogen (black) and oxygen (white). Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential vitamin that is found in fruit and green vegetables. It is needed for the growth and maintenance of bones, teeth, skin and blood vessels. It is also a powerful antioxidant. Deficiency in vitamin C leads to scurvy, which causes bleeding gums and anaemia.
