4 Delicious Ways to Squeeze More Vitamin C Into Your Day

Craving added wellness support? Incorporating this nutrient powerhouse to your routine is a breeze with these vitamin C essentials.

FUN FACT: Drawing on the benefits of vitamin C dates all the way back to 1747 when it was discovered that the wellness-boosting nutrient was effective in treating sailors with scurvy (an illness that’s literally caused by a severe lack of vitamin C). Though most of us probably aren’t hitting the high seas these days, adding this powerful, antioxidant-rich vitamin into our daily wellness routine is a definite must. From wellness and immune system support to collagen support and more, vitamin C has your back in more ways than one.

Fortunately, you don’t have to eat mountains of oranges each day to reap the benefits. There are plenty of accessible, delicious vitamin C-infused products for squeezing more of the good stuff into your routine -- including our brand new Triple Berry Smoothie!

How much vitamin C should I have in a day?

According to The Harvard School of Public Health, the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) of vitamin C for adults over the age of 19 is 75mg for women (85mg if they are pregnant or nursing) and 90mg for men. However, one’s daily intake of the vitamin shouldn’t exceed 2000mg per day or it may result in digestive upset.

How can I get more vitamin C into my daily routine?

Establishing a routine that includes plenty of vitamin C is essential for keeping wellness goals on track and Pressed offers a variety of delicious options to get the job done!
