Multiple factors, including age, gender, life stage and smoking status, affect the amount of vitamin C a person needs. Therefore, the Institute of Medicine’s Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for vitamin C varies slightly between men and women of different life stages and conditions.
The levels are higher for smokers due to the increased oxidative stress they experience. The levels are higher for pregnant and breastfeeding women to address the increased needs of mother and baby.
Fruits, fruit juice and vegetables are rich sources of vitamin C. Oranges, orange juice, red bell peppers, strawberries and broccoli are just a few examples of foods that provide excellent amounts of vitamin C per serving. Unfortunately, nationally representative research data demonstrates that Americans are not meeting recommendations for fruit and vegetable intake or vitamin C intake on average.
