Recommended daily dose of vitamin C should be doubled, scientists claim
Current NHS guidelines rely on a WWII study from when food was in short supply

The recommended dose of vitamin C should be doubled, according to a recent study.

Scientists behind the claim have described the methods behind the 1944 study that continues to inform current day levels as “shocking”.

現在のところ, インクルード NHS そして 世界保健機関 (WHO) recommend a daily intake of the vitamin of 40mg and 45mg respectively.

しかしながら, academics behind a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition have said that the research conducted by The Sorby Research Institute was to assess the nutrition levels of Britons during World War II when food was in short supply.

現時点では, the aim was to avoid scurvy, rather than maximising health, 彼らが主張します.

Lead professor Philippe Hujoel said: “The vitamin C experiment is a shocking study.

“They depleted people’s vitamin C levels long-term and created life-threatening emergencies. It would never fly now.”

研究の一環として, participants were assigned zero, 10 または 70 milligrams of vitamin C per day for an average of nine months.

Experimental wounds were inflicted on participants during this period, with researchers using the “scar strength” as a measure of adequate vitamin C, since poor wound healing is is an indicator of scurvy.

Prof Hujoel added: “The findings of the re-analyses of the Sorby data suggest that the WHO’s recommendation is too low to prevent weak scar strength.

“Such a vitamin C intake is more than double the daily 45mg vitamin C intake recommended by the WHO but is consistent with the writing panels for the National Academy of Medicine and (他の) countries.”

による NHS, vitamin Cwhich is also known as ascorbic acidhas three major functions.

These include helping to protect cells and keeping them healthy, maintaining healthy skin, blood vessels, bones and cartilage, and helping with wound healing.

Good sources of vitamin C include citrus fruit, such as oranges, ペッパー, 芽キャベツ, potatoes, kimchi, いちご, blackcurrants and broccoli.
