Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning it can’t be produced by the body. Nevertheless, it has many roles in your body and has been linked to impressive health benefits. It is water-soluble and found in many fruits and vegetables, including oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bell peppers, broccoli, kale and spinach. While it’s commonly advised to get your vitamin C intake from foods, many people turn to supplements to meet their needs. Here are 6 scientifically proven benefits of taking a vitamin C supplement:

  • Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant that can boost your blood antioxidant levels. This may help reduce the risk of chronic diseases like heart diseases.
  • Vitamin C Supplements have been found to lower blood pressure in both healthy adults and adults with existing high blood pressure.
  • Vitamin C-rich foods and supplements have been linked to reduces blood uric acid levels and lower risk of gout.
  • Vitamin C can improve the absorption of iron that is poorly absorbed, such as iron from meat-free sources. It may also reduce the risk of iron deficiency.
  • Vitamin C may boost immunity by helping white blood cells function more effectively, strengthening your skins defense system and helping wounds heal faster.
  • Low vitamin C levels have been linked to an increase risk of memory and thinking disorders like dementia, while high intake of vitamin C from foods and supplements has been shown to have a protective effect.
