Load Up on the Cs

The old and trusty Cs of nature has a lot of health benefits for the entire family. Among the health benefits of Vitamin C include: warding off infections, coughs, and colds; aiding in iron absorption; promoting healthy skin, bones, gums, and teeth; and helping in collagen creation. Getting enough Vitamin C from the foods that we eat is easy with a regular diet of fruits and vegetables.

Health experts recommend getting daily doses of Vitamin C from foods such as oranges, lemons, bell pepper, broccoli, berries, papayas, and pineapples. Although the upper limit of Vitamin C intake is set at 2,000 mg per day, the recommended daily allowance for this vitamin varies depending on age.

Those who do not have quite a healthy diet might have to take supplements and multi-vitamins to get their recommended dose of Cs. For our little ones, it is important to consult with the pediatrician to see exactly how much Vitamin C they can safely load up on. Vitamin C is water soluble and anything in excess of the recommended daily allowance is flushed out of the system. But, there are health conditions like G6PD, kidney stones, and liver ailments where excessive intake of Vitamin C can have adverse effects. So, keep within safe doses and always check with your family doctor for any pre-existing health conditions.
