VITAMIN C: Do You Really Need It? This Will Help You Decide!

Updated: Aug 13, 2021

Who doesn’t love some delicious citrus every once in a while? I know I do!

Even though we know citrus is a common way to get Vitamin C, there is actually a lot more to the popular vitamin than many may be aware of.

In fact, as much more than just a great protector against scurvy (ahoy!) Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps with majorly important bodily functions. A few examples would be encouraging wounds to heal, protecting against DNA damage in skin cells, discouraging the buildup of free radicals, and encouraging overall skin regeneration.

But now that we know WHAT Vitamin C can do, how can we know WHERE to get it from? After all, quality is certainly more important than quantity when it comes to taking care of the body.

Getting Vitamin C for the Body

According to the Mayo Clinic, our bodies don’t naturally produce Vitamin C. Because of this, it’s incredibly important to include this vital vitamin into our diets every single day!

If you’re someone who doesn’t know quite where to start in hunting down the whereabouts of Vitamin C, don’t worry! Check out this little handy dandy chart to discover a few of the many ways you can get wonderful vitamin C into your body.

How Much Vitamin C Do I Need?

The amount of Vitamin C required will be a bit different for each individual. The biggest determining factor, according to Healthline, is primarily gender. On average, women should be meeting the daily recommended intake of 75 mg while men need a bit more at 90 mg.
