Vitamin C is an essential vitamin, meaning your body can’t produce it. Yet, it has many roles and has been linked to impressive health benefits.
It’s water-soluble and found in many fruits and vegetables, including oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bell peppers, broccoli, kale, and spinach.
It is also found in Naturelly Juicy Jelly Pouches which contain 100% of the recommended daily intake for adults of Vitamin C.
The recommended daily intake for vitamin C is 75 mg for women and 90 mg for men (1).
While it’s commonly advised to get your vitamin C intake from foods, many people turn to supplements to meet their needs. Naturelly jelly can be both a food and a supplement.
There are scientifically proven benefits of taking a vitamin C supplement.
One of the main reasons people take vitamin C supplements is to boost their immunity, as vitamin C is involved in many parts of the immune system.
First, vitamin C helps encourage the production of white blood cells known as lymphocytes and phagocytes, which help protect the body against infection (21Trusted Source).
Second, vitamin C helps these white blood cells function more effectively while protecting them from damage by potentially harmful molecules, such as free radicals.
Third, vitamin C is an essential part of the skin’s defense system. It’s actively transported to the skin, where it can act as an antioxidant and help strengthen the skin’s barriers (22).
What’s more, low vitamin C levels have been linked to poor health outcomes.
