Day 14: Vitamin C

day 14

Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in your body.  You can find it in a lot of fruits and veggies, including:

  • Citrus fruits
  • Kiwi
  • Pineapple
  • Berries
  • Watermelon
  • Cruciferous veggies (broccolie, cauliflower, brussels sprouts)
  • Spinach
  • Tomatoes
  • and more!

Many foods are now fortified with Vitamin C, including cereals and beverages.  Be careful in assuming that fortified foods contain a form of this nutrient that your body is able to process – natural and fresh fruits and veggies seem the best way to go, and really make your body feel great!  While that is just my belief, it’s really up to you, and figuring out what forms of vitamin C work best for your body.  What is your favorite way to get Vitamin C?
