4 Ways to Get Vitamin C That Don’t Involve a Powdered Product

Now is as good of time as any to double down on your nutrient intake and boost your immune system. I want to specifically talk to you about your Vitamin C intake. 

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient involved in the repair of tissue and the enzymatic production of certain neurotransmitters your body needs. It acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy. The benefits of vitamin C include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling. 

The problem today however is that people are opting for powdered or superficial supplements that are packed full of unnatural sugar and junk versus adding adequate high Vitamin C containing fruits and veggies to their diets. 

Here are 4 ways to get more Vitamin C without taking any powder supplement: 

Grapefruit 

A grapefruit contains about 88 mg of vitamin C, which is 120% of the daily value

Oranges 

One large orange provides 97.9 mg mg of vitamin C

Kale 

One cup of chopped raw kale provides 80 mg  of vitamin C, or 89% of the DV

Strawberries 

One cup of strawberries halves provides 85 mg of vitamin C, or 99% of the DV 

*For adults, the recommended daily amount for vitamin C is 65 to 90 milligrams (mg) a day, and the upper limit is 2,000 mg a day*
