Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of our body. It is used to form an important protein used to make skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. It also helps to heal wounds and form scar tissue. Severe Vitamin C deficiency, called scurvy, causes bruising, gum and dental problems, dry hair and skin, and anemia.
