Why Foods for Vitamin C?

Vitamin C is one of the antioxidants that keeps us healthy;and;enhances the immune system, among other things. You can take Vitamin C supplements, but most are synthetic and;can’t be correctly assimilated by the body, and much;of what you take is flushed out in the urinary system. Foods with naturally occurring;Vitamin C are;much;better for you. They have smaller doses and can be eaten or drank frequently without the stomach upset that some Vitamin C supplements;have.

Note from Matt &;Betsy:;While getting your vitamins from foods is best, there are times when a supplement really comes in handy.;We like;this whole food Vitamin C supplement;made with camu camu and acerola cherry. It’s especially convenient to add to drinks at the first sign of sickness when you’re trying to load up on this vitamin.

It is hard to get too much Vitamin C, but 2000 mg per day is considered too much. You will know when you are getting too much as your urine may burn and turn bright yellow or even orange. If you think you have gotten too much Vitamin C, simply drink a glass or two of water. Do not go overboard on the water as this can be more dangerous than too much Vitamin C.
