Vitamin C: for the maintenance of healthy cartilage

What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C (also called ascorbic acid) is a water soluble vitamin. Everyone knows that this vitamin is important for good resistance and the immune system. Anyone who feels a cold coming on quickly grabs an extra piece of fruit, opts for a vitamin-rich vegetable or takes a vitamin C supplement.

Vitamin C is also important for healthy bones, teeth, skin, nervous system, energy supply and blood vessels. This vitamin is an antioxidant and protects the body (along with Vitamin E) against free radicals, which play a role in aging. Furthermore, Vitamin C promotes iron absorption and helps maintain healthy cartilage.

Sources of Vitamin C

Vitamin C is largely obtained from the diet. Vegetables, fruit and potatoes are important dietary sources of Vitamin C. One orange contains an average of 51 milligrams of Vitamin C, 150 milligrams in a red pepper and 9 milligrams in 100 grams of potatoes. According to the Nutrition Center, adults need 75 milligrams of Vitamin C per day. With a healthy diet, this amount is more than achieved.

Vitamin C is easily broken down when heated. It is therefore wise to choose dietary sources of Vitamin C that are not heated (fruit, raw vegetables) as much as possible. It is also advisable to use as little water as possible when cooking, because of the water solubility of the vitamin. If you keep the pieces to be cooked as large as possible, you also limit the amount of Vitamin C that is poured off with the cooking liquid.
Looking for a real Vitamin C boost? According to various sources, red / yellow pepper, kiwi, guava, broccoli, papaya, parsley, chicory and rosehip are the richest sources of Vitamin C.
