Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that plays a major, if somewhat exaggerated, role in immune health. While rare, severe vitamin C deficiency can result in scurvy. Vitamin C is naturally found in fruits and vegetables, like oranges, broccoli, and tomatoes. The best way to get it is to consume these food raw. If your diet lacks these foods, you may be getting less than the daily recommended amount of vitamin C.

Eat your fruits and veggies

Many Americans do not eat enough fruits and vegetables. The USDA recommends three to five daily servings of vegetables, and two to four servings of fruit. In fact, the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans propose half of your plate at any given meal should be fruits and veggies. Fruits and vegetables are loaded with vitamin C, so if you aren’t eating enough of them, you may want to consider supplementation.

ingredients

We ferment vitamin C with organic foods and yeast, making it resemble vitamin C in its food-based form. As a result, it’s easy for your body to absorb and can be taken on an empty stomach. Most vitamin C products on the market are in their isolate form, which is less bioavailable and hard to digest.
