Vitamin C: What You Probably Don’t Know About It
Want to look like a pirate? Sounds kind of fun at first, but if you don’t get enough vitamin C, you could end up with a pirate look that is way more authentic than you really want. Because everyone knows, severe vitamin C deficiency can cause “that pirate disease”, right?
Okay, so that might seem extreme. In modern times, almost nobody is Vitamin C deficient to that degree. But it IS true that many people are lacking vitamin C.
The sign and symptoms of vitamin C deficiency don’t happen overnight. They build up over time. Some common symptoms are muscle aches, weakness, fatigue, anemia, rashes and bleeding gums.
So, I’m here to help you understand how much vitamin C you need each day and the best way to get it.

Best Foods For Vitamin C
- Fermented vegetables. They are a tremendous source of vitamin C and other nutrition. Fermented vegetables are often missing from western diets, particularly in the United States. Fermented cabbage is especially good – you know it as sauerkraut. It contains up to 20 times the amount of vitamin C as raw or cooked veggies.
- Dark leafy greens. These include kale, spinach, chard, turnip greens and parsley. We often don’t think of these because we’re taught from a young age that citrus fruits are high in vitamin C – which they are, but dark leafy greens come without all the sugar.
- Low glycemic fruits. We’re talking grapefruit, lemons, limes, berries and cherries.
- Other veggies. Red bell peppers, broccoli, and cauliflower.
Make Good Choices
"I switched to these after learning my usual "natural" brand sold to Nestle (NO THANK YOU). Although it was a pain to find a brand that was actually natural, I'm so glad I had to make the switch. The purity of these are a breath of fresh air and they make me feel great. I definitely recommend!"
