Well first of all let me admit I am not the healthiest eater, nor am I good at eating vitamin C rich fruit and vegetables. But know taking vitamin C has many benefits for the body. Also known as Ascorbic acid. I used to take vitamin C supplements very regular in 2019, but this year I have been a bit scatty and not replacing the supplements when I ran out. Then the pandemic hit. Priorities was getting Loo rolls and essential food items. And when on Facebook one day, a person I am friends with but only recently this year has a online shop where she sell natural products. I saw she was selling vitamin C powder, and thought oh I need to get this, which I did. And Holland and Barrett was not doing the 1 penny sale offer, and I only liked the chewable ones. This is the first time of purchasing vitamin C in powder form, but glad I purchased it.
Like I have said my diet is not the best below are fruit and vegetables wth a good source of Vitamin C
- Oranges and Orange juice (from concerntrate is preferred)
- Red and Green Peppers
- Brussel sprouts
- Kiwi fruit

HOW DO I TAKE VITAMIN C POWDER?

I consume it either in the morning or during the day, but adding half a teaspoon to water and drinking it. And now as the season is changing I am going to stock up on this powder. I purchased this Vitamin C powder on BLACKPOUNDDAY back in June 2020. From a Black owned business called Naturally You Coach when you can find many organic rich food products from
It is best not to go over the recommended dosage, and if you are unsure to take Vitamin C powder please seek medical advice from your Heath Advisor (Doctor).
