Vitamin C is very important for increasing immunity and fighting infections. It helps in good teeth and bone development. It is also necessary for repairing tissues and healing bones. During pregnancy, a woman requires at least 85 mg of Vitamin C every day. Dry skin and wounds healing slowly are indications of Vitamin C deficiency.
