Vitamin C also known as Ascorbic acid is found in various fruits vegetables. Usually the body can obtain the RDA of Vitamin C via a normal diet. Recent developments have led individuals to increase their consumption of vitamin C for various reasons. This powdered form of Ascorbic acid can be mixed in a beverage and allows for easy supplementation.

Benefits of Vitamin C

An immune builder also used by the body to heal wounds in fact lack of vitamin C can slow down the body's natural healing process and lead to medical conditions such as Scurvy.

Often used in weight loss diets due to how critical it is for your body to have the proper amounts of vitamin C in order to break down carbohydrates,fats and protein.

Recent studies show vitamin C to be beneficial to cardiovascular health as well

Typical Preparations

Mixed into water, juices or other drinks or sprinkled over foods. The powdered form is often used by individuals who have trouble swallowing pills or capsules. The taste is a bit tart but I personally mix it with juices regularly.

Ascorbic acid powder is also used to prepare fruits for freezing. Sprinkle it on fruits or mix in a solution with water and apply to fruits prior to freezing. This application prevents the fruit from the browning discoloration caused by oxidation.

Supplement Dosing

     The U.S. Food and Nutrition Board of the institute of Medicine recommend that men over age 18 obtain 90 mg of vitamin C per day. Women over 18 are recommended to get 75 mg per day.  I personally supplement with 1 - 2 Grams per day on a regular basis and have done so for years personally. I am an adult male over 40 that regularly engages in intense physical activity so my personal supplementation is somewhat specific to these special needs.
