Vitamin C is an essential nutrient which is required for the everyday functioning of our day-to-day lives.

One of Vitamin C’s most common roles is to help protect cells and keep them healthy, whilst maintaining healthy skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage and helping with wound healing.

Our recommended amount of Vitamin C can vary between men and women, our age and whether we smoke among other things.

We get vitamin C from fresh fruit and vegetables, such as tomatoes, oranges, lemons and greens. If we don’t have enough of these in our diet, or if we are deficient to vitamin C, we can experience health issues such as bleeding (particularly in the gums) slow wound healing and in extreme cases, illnesses such as Scurvy.

So how much vitamin C do we need?

Government guidelines recommend a daily dose of 90 milligrams (mg) for men, and 75 mg for women. For a more detailed guide you can use the handy table below:

Age Male Female Pregnancy
0-6 months 40 mg 40mg
7-12 months 50 mg 50 mg
1-3 yrs 15 mg 15 mg
4-8 yrs 25 mg 25 mg
9-13 yrs 45 mg 45 mg
14-18 yrs 75 mg 65 mg 80 mg
19+ yrs 90 mg 75 mg 85 mg
Smokers smokers require 35 mg extra over non-smokers

The recommended daily allowance does vary depending on the individual, and other factors such as the amount of stress being placed on the body.
