Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin, meaning that vitamin C rich foods need to be eaten on a daily basis as any excess vitamin C is excreted in the urine.
The body needs vitamin C to help keep all of the cells in the body functioning properly and to help support healthy blood vessels and bones. Vitamin C is also crucial in the health of the skin since it’s important in the manufacture of collagen that supports the skin, and for wound healing. It plays a role in maintaining good levels of cartilage that’s important for cushioning the joints, too.
Citrus fruits, strawberries, kiwi fruits, peppers, broccoli, brussels sprouts and potatoes are all good natural sources of vitamin C.
