Vitamin C and Immunity

Vitamin C & Immunity

Vitamin C has been widely linked with immunity benefits and you may have heard people advising you to take vitamin C when you have a cold. This theory particularly gained momentum following the publication of Vitamin C and the Common Cold by esteemed Chemist and Nobel Prize winner, Linus Pauling, which encouraged the idea that Vitamin C taken in large quantities could reduce the duration and severity of the common cold. In recent years, other studies have contributed to this theory.

Apart from this nutrient being responsible for good health when taken regularly, lack or deficiency of Vitamin C is said to have many negative health implications such as fatigue, depression, muscle and joint pain, bruising and in severe cases, can cause scurvy. This is easily preventable if monitored and managed.

Sources of Vitamin C

With our inability to produce Vitamin C, we need to acquire this vitamin from outside sources such as foods. While there are many Vitamin C rich foods including citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwi fruit, broccoli, red and green bell pepper, tomatoes and potatoes; it is difficult to measure exact Vitamin C intake and whether the recommended dietary intake is being met. Today’s western diet is often deficient in plant-based foods and this vital nutrient. Supplementation is therefore often required, however, most options today are produced synthetically and not from wholefood sources.
