Don't Be Fooled About Vitamin-C

As I have previously written on this blog, you need to know the best sources of vitamin-C and they aren't necessarily the ones that will first pop into your mind. When ask, most people will immediately mentioned oranges or orange juice. And yes, that is a source of vitamin-C. However, red and green bell peppers provide around 2 1/2 times as much vitamin-C as do oranges! Broccoli and Brussels sprouts provide over twice as much as do oranges. Spinach provides a fraction more vitamin-C than do oranges. So don't forget your veggies when you are looking for vitamin-C foods. As for fruits, strawberries have more vitamin-C than oranges.

Vitamin-C is a powerful antioxidant and vitamin- c rich foods should be include regularly in your diet.
