Vitamin C: our functional drinks for radiant vitality

"Discover the secrets of an essential vitamin for your everyday well-being.


Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble nutrient essential for good health, which our bodies cannot produce themselves. That's why it's vital to get this vitamin from our diet [1].

Discover the benefits of vitamin C

Vitamin C, a real superhero for your health!


Vitamin C plays an important role in a number of biological processes [2, 3]. In particular, it contributes to the proper functioning of the immune system and reduces fatigue. It is a powerful antioxidant: it neutralises free radicals, unstable molecules that can damage your cells, and thus plays a role in protecting tissues. It also helps to consolidate collagen fibres, the famous proteins that help maintain your skin's structure. Finally, vitamin C promotes the absorption of plant-based iron (known as non-haem iron), found in legumes and nuts, for example, helping to prevent anaemia.


In practice: vitamin C consumption


Vitamin C requirements vary according to age, sex, physical condition, smoking, alcoholism, diet... So it all depends on your lifestyle. For a healthy adult, ANSES (Agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire de l'alimentation, de l'environnement et du travail) recommends 110 mg/day [4]. Prolonged vitamin C deficiency can lead to scurvy, a serious illness characterised by muscle weakness [5]. Fortunately, thanks to a balanced diet, vitamin C deficiency is rare. In fact, vitamin C occurs naturally in our diet and vitamin C requirements can be met by eating fruits such as pomegranates, cherries, blackcurrants and citrus fruits, and vegetables, particularly peppers [6]. Generally speaking, cases of severe vitamin C deficiency in developed countries are rare.
