Vitamin C Intake

Your body doesn’t produce vitamin C, so you need to get it through your diet. Fresh fruits and vegetables are a great source of many vitamins, nutrients, and minerals. Vitamin C can also be taken orally with supplements, typically found in capsules, chewable tablets, or powders. Most people get enough vitamin C from eating a well-balanced, healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables. Dr. Matzinger can customize a dietary and supplement plan unique to each individual, focusing on physical, mental, and spiritual well-being.

Vitamin C Dietary Supplements

Most multivitamins contain vitamin C, but it is also available alone as a supplement or in combination with other nutrients. Vitamin C in supplements is typically ascorbic acid, but it can also be in other forms, including sodium ascorbate, calcium ascorbate, other mineral ascorbates, and ascorbic acid with bioflavonoids. Research has not shown that one form of vitamin C is better than another. At Matzinger Institute of Healing, we can supply you with natural dietary and digestive supplements.
