In this blog we will explain the, often over-looked importance of Vitamin C, what it does for the body, which sources we can get it from and the best sources.
What does Vitamin C do for us?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble nutrient found in some foods. In the body, 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. Free radicals have been linked to issues such as heart disease.
Where can I get Vitamin C?
The most publicised source of Vitamin C is Oranges. Whilst Oranges are a great source of Vitamin C some people may not like them or may find them hard to eat every day.
Another popular source of Vitamin C tends to be taking it in a multivitamin. This is a great way to get your RDA, however, not may multivitamins actually provide a good bio-available amount of Vitamin C.
What is the best source of Vitamin C?
The simple answer is Acerola Cherry's. The better answer is Ultra Immune.
Ultra Immune contains 512mg worth of pure Vitamin C AND 384mg of Acerola Cherry in just ONE capsule. One Acerola Cherry tends to yield approximately 1677mg of Vitamin C.
