What can you do today to start incorporating more Vitamin C into your diet? Many different foods are fortified with Vitamin C. For example, Vitamin C-enriched cereals, oranges, lean meats, fruit, and even yoghurt. Consuming foods fortified with Vitamin C can help provide healthy bones, skin, muscles, and an overall feeling of health and well-being.

If you are interested in learning about Vitamin C's health benefits, you should read on.

Lean protein:

One of the primary reasons why people gain weight is because they consume too much protein. Unfortunately, it's also one of the worst things you can drink if you're attempting to lose weight. There are two kinds of protein: beef and pork. Lean meat contains less fat content than meats that are traditionally used for protein. Lean cuts of pork are also high in protein.

Fruit and vegetables:

Most people are entirely unaware of just how healthy fruit and vegetables are for you. In reality, they are some of the most nutritious foods available. Fruits and vegetables provide the body with nearly fifty percent of its total calories. They contain fibre, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants, which mean that eating them is not only good for you but great for your health. You can obtain Vitamin C's daily requirements by eating foods like whole grains, fish, spinach, carrots, cantaloupe, and tomatoes. 

Yoghurt:

This may seem like an odd place to eat something that is supposed to be a fruit, but yoghurt contains healthy bacteria that help keep your stomach feeling balanced. Because of this, you should eat at least one serving of yoghurt each day. There are many different kinds, so be sure to read labels carefully. Choose the sugar-free and non-flavoured varieties, which will keep your sugar intake down.

Water:

If you want to get a full amount of vitamin C in your diet, you should drink at least eight glasses of water each day. Water-soluble vitamins get dissolved in them, acting as a natural cleaner of nutrients. So drinking plenty of it will help your body absorb as many antioxidants as possible.

Oranges:

Although most people are used to eating oranges as a snack, these contain much less vitamin C than you would likely think. That's why it is better to peel yours before using them to eat with. Oranges have been proven to provide a higher level of antioxidants than the fruit's skin. It's also been shown to improve the condition of the skin and tighten pores.

Nuts:

This is by far the best way to get your daily dosage of Vitamin C. Just remembers to eat them raw whenever possible. Groundnut mix is also available, which is just as good as eating them fresh. You can make a delicious spread out of groundnuts, which you can eat on its own or top with any kind of nutritional supplement. If you prefer, you can ground up the nut mix and sprinkle it over any soup or stew.

Vitamin C has been proven to have many health benefits. And with just a few simple changes, you can be enjoying healthy, vibrant skin and hair, as well as many other great benefits.
