Vitamin C: Get Some Every Day by Linda Polansky

There is a lot of information out there these days about
different vitamins and minerals. You may wonder what is most
important and you may be afraid of using supplements and
getting too much of some vitamins. Vitamin C is one of the less
complicated vitamins both in terms of what it does and how to
get it.



Scurvy Or Vitamin C Deficiency

Vitamin C is water soluble. This means that your body doesn’t
store it for later. That’s why sailors in the old days used to
get scurvy, a disease caused by vitamin C deficiency. The best
sources of vitamin C are types of produce like citrus and
berries that don’t travel well and weren’t part of a regular
diet at sea. Sailors didn’t have vitamin C supplements then,
either, so their bodies would run out of vitamin C quickly and
they would develop scurvy, marked by things like dry hair and
skin, bleeding gums, and frequent nosebleeds. Scurvy is pretty
rare these days, especially in the United States, but it is
still important to make sure you get enough vitamin C every
day. Because it is water soluble, your body gets rid of
whatever you don’t need that day when you urinate, so that also
means it’s very difficult to get too much, and if you do, it
isn’t toxic, but it will give you a stomach ache or diarrhea.



Health Benefits Of Vitamin C

What does vitamin C do for you? For starters, it is an
antioxidant, which have been in the news a lot recently. When
our bodies break down food and convert it to energy, they
produce free radicals, which cause minor damage and are a large
cause of the effects of aging on the body. Antioxidants help
minimize this damage and therefore, slow down the aging
process. Vitamin C helps keep our skin, teeth, and bones
healthy, as well as helping us recover from wounds. It can also
help us resist the negative effects of chemicals and pollutants.


Vitamin C Foods

In addition to vitamin C supplements, vitamin C can be found in
some amount in all fruits and vegetables. Along with the citrus
and berries mentioned earlier, green peppers, broccoli and
leafy greens are also excellent sources of high amounts of
vitamin C.

The US Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of vitamin C for men
(over 18) is 90 mg per day, while for women it is 75 mg per
day. The recommended allowances for children start at 30 mg and
increase with age; ask your pediatrician for guidance.
