Can you get enough vitamin c from food and dietary sources ?

It is not difficult to incorporate the RDA of vitamin C into your diet, but more than the RDA is needed to provide antioxidant protection and other health benefits. Studies have shown that at least 500 milligrams of vitamin C are needed each day to get the maximum protective benefits from this nutrient, so most people could benefit from taking a vitamin C supplement.

People over the age of 55 and smokers should strongly consider vitamin C supplementation for extra antioxidant protection; the rate of oxidation increases as a result of smoking and the natural aging process.
