At 11 weeks of pregnancy, you need at least 85 mgs of vitamin C daily. Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is not produced by the body. Hence, this water-soluble vitamin is consumed in small amounts from fruits and vegetables. Veggies like tomato, sweet potato, aamlas, and bell pepper and fruits like orange, mango, guavas, grapes, and peaches, are excellent sources of vitamin C.
During pregnancy, this vitamin in right amount is needed for your little one to build new cells and form healthy bones and teeth. It helps to make collagen, a structural protein, which is a part of cartilage, bones, tendon and skin, thereby helping in the growth and development of baby’s organs. Above all, it acts as an antioxidant and helps your body fight infections.
If vitamin C is taken in excess, it will not be stored in our body; rather, it will be excreted, being a water-soluble vitamin. When taken in excess, it can also cause high blood pressure to the would-be-mom, abdominal cramps, and diarrhea. Hence, this nutrient should be a part of the daily diet but in healthy dose.
Pregnant women aged 18 and younger need 80 mgs per day and women age 19 and older need 85 mgs per day.
