As we've been saying for a while now, vitamin C is the powerhouse of the vitamin world. As well as having a large role in boosting our immune system, this abundant nutrient also helps us heal cuts and wounds faster, maintains the strength of bones and teeth, improves metabolism, and keeps our skin and hair in tip top condition.
