Because vitamin C is one of the water soluble ones along with most of the B vitamins. Since they dissolve in water and our urine is mostly water, when we go to the bathroom we pee some of it out. That's why we have to replace both B & C vitamins everyday with as healthy diet that include lots of fresh vegetable and fruits.
