Vitamin C is a vital nutrient required by the body. Do you know that it is also referred to as 'ascorbic acid'? This water-soluble nutrient acts as a powerful antioxidant needed for the maintenance and development of scar tissues, arteriole, and cartilage. Certain vegetables and fruits packed with Vitamin C can help us fulfil our daily requirements. These include broccoli, kiwi fruit, yellow bell peppers, guava, dark green leafy vegetables like swiss chard, spinach, and turnip greens, strawberries, tomatoes, and papaya. The human body can't generate Vitamin C. Therefore, and it needs to be received through food and other supplements. It is also important to cook the food at low temperatures and for a short time to preserve the Vitamin C food content as it is a heat-sensitive nutrient.
