Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and an essential nutrient, meaning our bodies cannot make it and we must obtain it via food or supplementation. 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. 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.
