The Health Benefits Of Vitamin C!!

Hey girls (or boys)! Vitamin C helps the body maintain healthy tissues and a strong immune system, and it aids in absorption of iron. Vitamin C is considered a powerful ally if you’re trying to avoid or kick a cold or other illness. Together with calcium and iron, it’s also an important part of a diet that counteracts lead poisoning.

Get your vitamin C naturally with these top 10 food sources, according to the USDA’s. You may be surprised to find oranges don’t rank No. 1 as many of us assume or know.

Here are other great sources of vitamin C:

  • Guava
  • Red Sweet Pepper
  • Kiwi
  • Orange
  • Green Sweet Pepper
  • Grapefruit Juice
  • Vegetable Juice Cocktail
  • Strawberries
  • Brussels Sprouts
  • Cantaloupe
