Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an important nutrient for maintaining bone health.


Vitamin C contributes to the formation of collagen. Collagen is an important protein in the body and a major component of cartilage.

Collagen makes up 60% of cartilage, a tissue that surrounds bones and protects against friction between bones, thus providing a soft framework for bones and ensuring bone flexibility.

Fortunately, vitamin C is found in a wide variety of fruit and vegetables.
