Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and an essential nutrient, meaning our bodies can’t make it and we must obtain it from our diets. Specifically, vitamin C:
- Plays a central role in the repair and regeneration of tissues.
- Helps protect cells from everyday oxidative stress throughout the body.
- May support healthy immune function.
Getting vitamin C through your diet is easy – food sources are abundant and can be enjoyed all year long: try increasing your intake of broccoli, cantaloupe, kiwi, oranges, peppers, pineapple, pink grapefruit and strawberries. Supplemental vitamin C is another option – I suggest a vitamin C supplement derived from d-glucose, taken with a meal to reduce any stomach irritation.
Everyone's dietary needs are different based on a number of factors including lifestyle, diet, medications and more. To find out what vitamins you need, take the Weil Vitamin Advisor.
