10 Foods That Are Good Sources Of Vitamin C
If you want to support a healthy immune system this season, make sure your diet includes plenty of natural vitamin C. This powerful antioxidant plays a central role in the repair and regeneration of tissues, helps protect cells throughout the body, and may support healthy immune function.
Good food sources of vitamin C that are abundant and can be enjoyed all year long include:
- Red Bell Peppers
- Pink Grapefruit
Note that red bell peppers and strawberries are both on the Environmental Working Group’s Dirty Dozen list, and should be sourced organically.
Although supplemental vitamin C is available in many forms, I suggest using an inexpensive vitamin C supplement derived from d-glucose, taken with a meal to prevent stomach upset.
