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. Atoms are represented as rods and spheres and are colour-coded: carbon (black), hydrogen (red) and oxygen (blue).
