making molecules sumative

The molecule that I am making is vitamin c the formula for vitamin c is C6H8O6, some animals can create this molecule but humans have to get it from food. Vitamin c is useful for a number of things, one of them is iron absorption, taking vitamin c along with iron can increase how much iron the body absorbs, another thing that vitamin c is used for is improving a genetic disorder in newborn baby's called tyrisinemia taking vitamin c helps with the genetic disorder by lowering the levels of amino acid tyrosine.

Learning about molecules is important because molecules make every thing around us and if we know about them we can use that knowledge for medicine technology and many other things.For example in medicine we need to know what molecules are used to make medications and how reactive they are, if you know the structure of the molecule you can see what are their properties and how it can help improve medication. another example could be technology this is because using the things we know about molecules we can make technology better and faster by understanding the properties of each molecule.
