What To Know About Vitamin C
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for human health. Vitamin C is involved in many important processes in the body, including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, and the synthesis of neurotransmitters. Vitamin C deficiency can lead to a number of health problems, including scurvy, decreased immunity, and poor wound healing. Vitamin C deficiency is relatively rare in developed countries, but it remains a problem in developing countries where access to fresh fruits and vegetables is limited. Vitamin C supplements are an effective way to prevent deficiency and ensure adequate intake of this important nutrient.
Vitamin C is found in many fruits and vegetables, so the best way to prevent Vitamin C deficiency is to eat a healthy diet that includes plenty of these foods. In addition, supplementing with Vitamin C can help to ensure that your body gets enough of this important nutrient.
When you seek help for a problem, it’s good to have already tried the basics (like turning it off and on again). For health problems (both physical and mental), start with the health basics, like nutrition, sleep, and exercise.
Here’s a good example: Vitamin C seems pretty common. If you have a truly healthy diet, you’re probably getting enough each day. Foods that have Vitamin C include citrus, leafy greens, strawberries, and more. But if you’re not getting enough Vitamin C, you might have unpleasant side-effects that you don’t realize are related.
Extreme, obvious Vitamin C deficiency includes diseases like scurvy. But a more mild form of Vitamin C deficiency might cause stress, depression, sugar cravings, and more. Things that are actually pretty common among Americans!
There are actually quite a few studies showing that Vitamin C helps with mental health, and with depression in particular. Getting a bit more Vitamin C in your diet is a good place to start when symptoms of stress, depression, and anxiety start up. Even better, if you need to escalate to more aggressive ways of tackling symptoms, Vitamin C still helps, and might improve your chances of success.
If dietary restrictions are keeping you from getting enough Vitamin C, make sure you’re taking a daily multivitamin with Vitamin C, like Vita One. The ingredients in Vita One are easily digested and used, so they’re more efficient and easy on struggling digestive tracts.
