Vitamin World C-500 Vitamin C Tablets
There are a wide range of reasons to make sure you get ample Vitamin C. And not just the tiny US RDA amount which is designed to prevent scurvy. You need far, far more than that to be at optimal health. Of course, different doctors have different ideal amounts that they recommend, and it also depends on your age, sex, activity levels, health, and much more.
For example the bare minimum the US government recommends is 75mg/day for women and 90mg/day for men. But to help prevent breast cancer, that value is at least 500mg/day. That same number also helps with prostate cancer. There's a wide range of cancers, immune system, and other issues that vitamin C is awesome about. But you have to take more than that 75mg/day.
And many people don't even get that much! People in our modern times DO get scurvy by eating fast food all the time!
So, once you realize you need to supplement your Vitamin C, even if you take a multivitamin, you look at your options. I've tried many of them and I love the Nature Made chewables. They have a great flavor - many other Vitamin C chewables have a sharp flavor that I don't like. They're easy to chew and swallow. They have under a gram of sugar per serving.
The vitamin C here comes from sodium ascorbate. This means it has a small amount (50mg) of sodium in its mix. Most of us don't need to worry about that tiny amount.
So, in general, I highly recommend supplementing your Vitamin C somehow, and I particularly recommend these. I've gone through a wide variety of Vitamin C options in my testing over the years, and these are what I've settled on.
Let me know if you have any questions!
FTC note: I purchase these with my own funds to keep me healthy.
