The 21st Century Challenge
Diet lack of fruits and vegetables makes it impossible for people to get enough Vitamin C for the body and immune system to rebuild and rejuvenate naturally.
Just imagine how much Vitamin C- rich fruits and vegetables we need to consume a day in order to obtain the amount of Vitamin C necessary for body’s metabolism and biochemical processes.
A freshly plucked orange provides only 60 mg of Vitamin C. To achieve the adult daily minimum requirement of 1000 mg of Vitamin C, you would have to eat approximately 18 freshly plucked oranges!
There’s more! Vitamin C is the most thermo labile vitamin.
As a result, substantial amount of Vitamin C is easily destroyed during cooking and thermal processing of foods. It is also sensitive to light and is easily leached into water; fresh fruits and vegetables begin to lose its Vitamin C once they are cut!
Human body does not have the ability to synthesize and store Vitamin C. Alcohol and medications such as steroids, antidepressants, analgesic, anticoagulant and contraceptives may reduce the level of Vitamin C in the body.
Moreover, Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is rapidly lost from our body. Hence, daily supplementation of Vitamin C is important for optimal health maintenance.

Can you take too much?
As Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, the body rids itself of excessive Vitamin C. It is non-toxic, even when taken in large amounts.
However, when a very excessive amount is taken, it may cause diarrhea, which is believed to bring a cleansing effect to the body.
Do you know that an orange (freshly plucked from a tree) provides you with only 60mg of Vitamin C?
