3 Reasons to Increase Your Vitamin C Intake

3 Reasons to Increase Your Vitamin C Intake


Short answer - yes.

Did you know that Vitamin C is a vital nutrient that your body doesn't make

Getting little to no Vitamin C (below about 10 mg/day) for several weeks can cause fatigue, inflammation in the gums, spotty skin, joint pain, poor wound healing, and poor hair growth among many other things...

Thankfully, Vitamin C is easily obtainable, so here are 3 simple ways to increase your intake!

1. Load up on Vitamin C-rich foods

Don't ignore your "random" fruit and vegetable cravings! Our bodies are incredibly intelligent and these cravings are usually a telltale sign of our bodies asking for specific nutrients. 

Add color to your diet with accessible and affordable citrus fruits like oranges and grapefruits.

Indulge in kiwis and strawberries, add vibrant bell peppers to your salads, savor the goodness of broccoli, or include juicy tomatoes in your recipes!

2. Get creative with garnishing 

Staying conscious of your Vitamin C intake doesn't have to be mundane!

Tend to your inner chef by adding lemon and lime juices to your food. Acidity in food cuts greasiness and heaviness and give your meal that fresh, clean taste that you crave.  

Did you also know that fresh herbs like parsley and cilantro also contain Vitamin C

So go ahead, and sprinkle some garnish on your dishes for enhanced flavor and of course, nutritional benefits!

3. Supplement when necessary

You should be getting about 75- 90mg of Vitamin C per day.

Have a busy schedule and want an easy, no-fuss way to get those needs met? 

Supplements are your way to go!

Vitamin C plays a vital role in supporting a healthy immune system, promoting collagen synthesis for skin health, aiding in iron absorption, and acting as a powerful antioxidant to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals.
