We may have hazy memories of learning about Vitamin C and its many benefits in school, about how its deficiency causes scurvy and about how many sailors suffered from this problem owing to lack of Vitamin C. Let’s have a brief refresher and look at this micro nutrient and what it can do for us.
Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid) is considered to be one of the most vital nutrients required for normal functioning of the body.
What are some impressive ways that Vitamin C benefits your body?
Now that we know about the importance of Vitamin C levels in the body, let’s learn about its nature. It is a water soluble nutrient and cannot be produced by the body at will. For this reason, Vitamin C must be sourced from outside in abundance to fulfill every need of the body. Let’s have a look at how this can be done.
Most people are aware that Vitamin C can be found in foods consumed as a part of our normal diet routines. Some foods exceptionally rich in Vitamin C include oranges, red and green peppers, strawberries, kiwi, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, tomatoes and grapefruit
Unfortunately, the Vitamin C present in our diet may not be sufficient to fulfill the body’s requirements. Hence, dietary supplements that help with Vitamin C levels are needed to enhance its positive effects on the body’s systems
How much Vitamin C do we require on a daily basis?
According to Food and Nutrition Board at the Institute of Medicine, growing infants require 50 mg, but then the amount drops down to 15 mg for children up to three years old.
It climbs slowly back up from that point, maxing out at 90 mg for adult men and 75 mg for adult women.
Looking for supplement recommendations?
Although a diet rich in citrus foods and beverages may provide a decent amount of Vitamin C, at times it may not be enough to fight illnesses such as the common cold. In such situations, it is better to supplement your normal diet plan with other readily available options. It is fulfilling and incredibly easy.
