Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is found in many fruits and berries, but also in vegetables such as cabbage and spinach. Citrus fruits have particular high contents of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is important for the production of collagen, and a deficiency can lead to scurvy, symptoms of which include spots on the skin, spongy gums, loss of teeth and bleeding from the mucous membranes. Most animals can produce sufficient ascorbic acid themselves but some, including humans, monkeys and guinea pigs, are dependent on supplements in their food.
