Today, let’s talk about vitamin C. I want to increase your awareness of the type of vitamin C you might be taking and the type you should be taking.

According to recent editions of the dictionary, ascorbic acid is the same thing as vitamin C. But, is the type of ascorbic acid in most vitamin supplements actually similar to vitamin C found in nature?

In my opinion, no. Ascorbic acid (synthetic vitamin C) is made from glucose and other chemicals. Personally, I would only take ascorbic acid for a short-term detox cleanse, not on a long-term basis.

The best type of vitamin C to get is vitamin C from food or food-based vitamins.

Foods high in vitamin C:

• Leafy greens

• Berries (blueberries, blackberries, raspberries, and pomegranate seeds)

• Lemons

• Organ meats

• Bell peppers

• Sauerkraut

Things you need to know about vitamin C:

1. There is little to no benefit from taking high doses of ascorbic acid.

2. Most vitamin C sold is fake and made from sugar.

3. Vitamin C is not absorbed well if you consume sugar at the same time.

4. A mega-dose of ascorbic acid may cause oxidation, diarrhea, and bloating.
