If its winter where you are…munch on some vitamin C!

If its winter where you are , its a good idea to get some vitamin C tablets.

Otherwise known as Ascorbic Acid, make sure you buy a good quality brand – I love Blackmores personally –  read the label to ensure that you are not eating mountains of tableting agents which some brand names tend to use.

Vitamin C is present, of course, in many foods….foods high in vitamin C are kiwifruit, limes, lemons, mandarins, oranges, grapefruit, rockmelon, pawpaw, broccoli, and the humble tomato. Fresh produce has more vitamin C retained than preserved or frozen produce, and tests have revealed that organic produce has more levels of vitamin C detected than non-organic.

Often seasonal winter fruit and vege are high in vitamin C – its nature’s way of providing us with that extra that we need during winter maybe.

Juices are good too – the more ‘pure’ the better. Less than 98% juice is simply not juice in my opinion, its cordial. Check for the pulp at the bottom of the bottle, and read the label. Organic juices are not actually all that more expensive when you weigh up the health benefits. And of course : try  lemon and honey drinks! So yummy, kids love them, plus that lovely goodness that honey has to offer (see previous post!).

Have a lovely day!
