Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient, which acts as an antioxidant in our bodies. That means it fights
free-radicals and helps convert all that healthy food into lasting energy. It is also boosts the immune system and helps make collagen, the protein that helps heal wounds and keep our skin looking great!
Oranges usually get all the C glory, but there are other delicious plants that have even more Vitamin C, including kiwi and broccoli.
So, Which has more Vitamin C: an orange or a bell pepper?
Nutrition Month Tip: Whole foods like plants often don’t have nutrition labels, but you can always check for yourself! Google any whole food and you will see USDA Nutrition Facts on the right side (or on the top of the results if on a mobile device).
What are your favorite ways to get your daily C?
