Our body cannot produce or store Vitamin C so daily intake is essential for optimum health. Some benefits are the possible reduced risk of cancer and heart disease. The best way to intake Vitamin C is through rich foods such as:

  • Citrus Fruits
  • Bell peppers
  • Dark leafy greens
  • Broccoli
  • Berries
  • Papayas

There is no problem if you intake too much Vitamin C because it is a water soluble which means that the body will emit any excess.
