Vitamin C also helps promote healthy teeth and gums and strengthens blood vessels. One of the main functions of Vitamin C is essential in the formation and maintenance of collagen which is a major component in the body's connective tissue (cartilage, tendons, ligaments, bone, teeth, and skin). Collagen is also a supporting material in capillaries and the formation of scar tissue.
