Vitamin C: essential for the immune system to function
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid in specialist circles, is a water-soluble vitamin that has strong antioxidant properties. Antioxidant is the protective and health-promoting effect of the so-called antioxidants found in fruit and vegetables. As an antioxidant, vitamin C prevents the oxidation of various substances and protects against free radicals, which means that vitamin C has a health-promoting effect. It is essential for skin renewal and the function of the immune system and is therefore of central importance for health, performance and well-being.

Adults take 50 to 200 mg ascorbic acid daily to prevent vitamin C deficiency. This corresponds to a maximum of half a film-coated tablet of vitamin C 1000 every second to third day.

Unless otherwise prescribed by a doctor, the dose for deficiency diseases due to an acute vitamin C deficiency is 200 to 1000 mg ascorbic acid per day, corresponding to half to a whole film-coated tablet daily. It is taken until the symptoms have subsided.

Vitamin C fulfills numerous important functions in the organism and is involved, among other things, in strengthening the immune system. If there is a lack of vitamin C or if there is an increased need, for example due to physical exertion, this can be noticeable, among other things, in an increased susceptibility to infections and recurring infections. A summarizing evaluation of 29 different studies came to the result that taking vitamin C reduces the duration of the cold1 and the frequency of colds decreases in particularly physically stressed people, such as athletes 3 or people with marginal vitamin C levels 4 .

Smokers have a higher need for vitamin C. As a result of the increased formation of free radicals in the body, more antioxidants are consumed, which causes a strong reduction in the corresponding vitamins. The intake of vitamin C recommended by the DGE is 135 mg per day for women who smoke and 155 mg per day for men, which is around 13% higher. If the increased need can not only be covered by nutrition, it is advisable to supply high-dose vitamin C by taking a drug such as Vitamin C 1000 film-coated tablets from Wörwag Pharma.

Although the need for calories decreases with age, the need for essential vitamins and minerals remains the same. Due to loss of appetite, taking medication and an unbalanced diet, the elderly can suffer from a deficient supply of vitamin C. A targeted supply of vitamin C can compensate for the deficiency and counteract any sequelae.


How much vitamin C does the body need?
According to the German Nutrition Society (DGE), the daily requirement for vitamin C is 95 mg per day for adult women and 110 mg per day for men. An increased intake is recommended for pregnant women from the 4th month (105 mg) and nursing mothers (125 mg). In addition, there is an increased need of 135 and 155 mg ascorbic acid per day for women and men who smoke.

How can I protect myself from a vitamin C deficiency?
