Minimum Requirement

The minimum requirement for vitamin C was established in the 1940s in a depletion/repletion study, which showed that an intake of less than 10 mg per day was adequate to prevent the development of scurvy, or to cure the clinical signs. At this level of intake, wound healing is impaired, and optimum wound healing requires a mean intake of 20 mg per day. Allowing for individual variation, this gives reference intake of 30 mg/day, which was the UK figure until 1991 and the WHO/FAO figure until 2001.
