Scurvy! That’s what you get if you’re lacking vitamin C. This affliction kicked around when the real Jack Sparrow’s terrorized the seas. We’ve come a long way since and you’ve probably never heard of anyone getting scurvy. It’s an extinct disease, gone the way of the dodo. Just grab some OJ from the store and you’re set for a least a few days, right? Perhaps not, even though the advice for your Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for vitamin C is super easy to reach. The current RDA for vitamin C is 90mg daily for men and 75mg for women, which is about one orange. However, a paper in Critical Reviews in Food Science and Nutrition found you should get at least 200mg per day to optimize health. If you follow the RDA you could be shortchanging your entire body of the nutrients you need to be at your best.


Wellness and the Big C

Before you go any further, you’d be well served to understand what this vitamin does for you. If ever there was a nutrient that was built to service your entire being, vitamin C would be the near perfect jack of all trades. It helps create bones, skin, and blood vessels. Yep, you need all of them, but its benefits are kind of relentless. You also need it to create the collagen that gift you with silky smooth joints and it also helps produce the neurotransmitters that help keep your brain smarter than a 5th grader. This vitamin isn’t done yet. It helps you absorb iron, boosts your immune system, and helps keep your heart in the best possible shape. That’s why it’s always been recommended as the ideal companion for anyone partial to inhaling oxygen. And if you like exercising then all these factors work to help you recover stronger from your training sessions.


Make wellness easy

How do you know how much vitamin C to take? The current recommendations were created almost 80 years ago and were based on how much we needed to avoid scurvy. So, the bare minimum.
