Foods with Vitamin C


Vitamin C is essential to the body’s growth and development. It forms proteins that create blood vessels, skin, tendons and ligaments. In addition, it plays a key role in healing wounds. Men and women over the age of 19 require a daily intake of between 75 milligrams and 90 milligrams. Breastfeeding women need as much as 120 milligrams per day. Children above the age of one require between 15 milligrams and 30 milligrams per day. Teens need to take between 65 milligrams and 75 milligrams daily. Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis or conditions that hinder absorption can cause a person to become deficient in vitamin C. An excess of vitamin C is typically a result of diet. The benefits of vitamin C were recognized when it was discovered that sailors could avoid scurvy by ingesting oranges, limes and other citrus fruits.
