Looking and feeling good is an important part of day to day life. When you look and feel your best, everything seems to come together. While you can wear a nice outfit or make yourself look good on the outside, you also need to take care of the inside as well. It’s a proven fact that no matter how good you look on the outside, if you feel bad on the inside, it will show.

For many people, their dietary restrictions or even allergies don’t allow them to get all the vitamins and nutrients they need on a daily basis. So for many, taking vitamins and nutritional supplements is a requirement in order to get the nutrients their bodies need. One of the Vitamins many people take is Vitamin C.

Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin. As human beings, our bodies don’t produce Vitamin C there for we obtain through our diets and supplements. Vitamin C is known as a powerful antioxidant that assists in helping to protect the molecules in our bodies.

Vitamin C has been studied for years. It has proven to help and protect the immune system, is a strong preventative in the fight against cardiovascular disease, is a great benefit to pregnant women, helps in the fight against eye disease and has even shown some positive effects in the battle against wrinkles.

You can obtain Vitamin C from a variety of foods including:

  • Oranges
  • Cantaloupe
  • Red Peppers
  • Strawberries
  • Green Bell Peppers
  • Broccoli
  • Spinach

These are just a sampling of the foods that you obtain Vitamin C from but again for many some of these foods may not be in the diet or they may be allergic to them so taking a supplement may be the way to go. The key is to get the daily requirement that you need in whatever form you can. Vitamin C is probably one of the most beneficial vitamins around so eat an orange, grab a supplement and feel better from the inside-out.
