Abstract: Vitamin-C chemically known as L-ascorbic acid is an essential micronutrient for the human body, required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of our body. It is used to produce skin, ligaments, blood vessels and form scar tissues, repair and maintain bones and teeth. It contains many antioxidants which removes free radicals and stimulates the immune system. Deficiency of ascorbic acid in human causes bruising, scurvy and oral problems. Moreover, lack of adequate Vitamin-C weakens our immune system which makes our body more vulnerable to infectious diseases. Our body neither makes Vitamin-C on its own, nor stores it. To compensate that, we consume various citrus fruits rich in Vitamin-C such as Amla (Emblica officinalis Linn.) and Lemon (Citrus Limon Linn.). Various products of Amla and Lemon are used to boost immunity such as pickle, sharbat, canned juice, candies etc. In the present study, we have compared these products using DCPIP titration to suggest which product is best for enhancement of the immune system. The experiment aims at estimation of amount of vitamin C in various products of Amla and Lemon to be consumed as a natural immunity booster.
