In brief: Vit C

Great question. Vit c (ascorbic acid) plays a role in tissue regeneration and healing.
It is necessary for healthy ligaments, tendons, skin, and blood vessels. There are several studies that point towards Ascorbic Acid helping those with headaches, but headaches are a known side-effect of large doses of ascorbic acid.
