Ascorbic acid, also known as Vitamin C, is a water-soluble vitamin that plays a crucial role in many biological processes in the human body. It is an antioxidant that helps to protect cells from damage and improve the immune system. Ascorbic acid is essential for the production of collagen, which is important for healthy skin, bones, and cartilage. Our bodies cannot produce ascorbic acid naturally, so we need to obtain it through our diet or supplements.
