Less commonly known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is one of the body’s most essential vitamins.
As a water-soluble vitamin, our bodies cannot store it. That means we need to get it from the foods we eat.
Vitamin C is mostly found in a range of fruits, including oranges, strawberries and blackcurrants.
If we cannot get enough vitamin C from our diets, a supplement is a great way to support our Vitamin C levels.
While vitamin C deficiency is uncommon, historically it has been known to lead to scurvy.
The body uses vitamin C to keep the nervous system functioning normally.
Vitamin C is also an antioxidant and protects against the effects of free radical damage.
It also helps the production of collagen, which is an essential protein for the normal function of teeth, cartilage, bones, skin and other crucial things within the body.
Zinc is another essential mineral. The body cannot produce zinc; neither can it be stored.
Like vitamin C, we get zinc through our diets. If we can’t do that, a daily supplement is an excellent alternative option.
Vegans and vegetarians are commonly deficient in zinc. That is because zinc is predominantly present in meat, shellfish, dairy and eggs, which cannot be consumed by those following a vegans and vegetarian diet.
While zinc is also found in legumes, seeds, nuts and whole grains, there is not usually enough to help vegans and veggies get the daily amount of zinc they need.
That is why a zinc supplement could be beneficial to anyone on a meat-free or plant-based diet.
