Vitamin C has a powerful antioxidant effect, and as a cofactor of enzymes and a substrate for the hydroxylation process, it encourages the synthesis of cells and skin collagen. It can also remove excessive free radicals, which demonstrates its abilities in beauty and anti-aging, makes the skin firm and elastic, and speeds up wound healing.

The statistics show that vitamin C has relatively low toxicity and that long-term ingestion of 1,000 mg/day has no negative effects. However, when used in excess of 3,000 mg per day, unpleasant effects include diarrhea, gastrointestinal discomfort, increased excretion of oxalic acid and uric acid, and increased kidney stone development will occur.

Therefore, for normal individuals, avoid using supplements as a daily requirement for an extended period of time because it could not be worth the risk. The best way to reach the recommended amount of vitamin C is to include fruits and vegetables in your regular diet.

Vegetables are well known to be nutritious in the diet and incorporated in at least 2 meals per day. The recommended vegetable servings are about 2-3 cups per day depending on the species.

Common vegetable categories include leafy greens (collard greens), cruciferous vegetables (broccoli) and root vegetables (potatoes). Dark green vegetables are a category of vegetables which generally have a dark green colour and are an excellent source of fiber, vitamin C, vitamin K and certain minerals such as iron and calcium and are also high in antioxidants.

Some of the examples include: spinach, kale and broccoli.
