Vitamin C molecule. Computer model showing the structure of a molecule of vitamin (ascorbic acid). Vitamin C is found in fruit and vegetables and is also a powerful antioxidant. Deficiency in vitamin C leads to scurvy, which causes bleeding gums and anaemia. Small amounts of vitamins are an essential part of a healthy diet, providing enzyme cofactors for the varied biochemistry of body metabolism. Atoms are represented as spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (white), and oxygen (red).
