Cold and Flu Season
With the cold and flu season in full swing, fortification with vitamin C is one of the most effective and potent methods for dodging illness. And yet, this well-known nutrient is often overlooked as an outstanding anti-aging, cancer-destroying, disease-busting and mood-boosting addition to the diet. To encourage health throughout the winter and beyond, consuming foods which naturally supply high levels of vitamin C is a smart move.
Likewise, have a look at the following list from the Global Healing Center which offers further examples of vitamin C-rich foods:
◾Red and yellow bell peppers
◾Herbs (cilantro, chives, thyme, basil and parsley)
◾Leafy greens (especially kale, mustard greens, watercress, chard and spinach)
For highest nutritional benefit, always consume organically grown produce and only cook lightly to retain delicate nutrients. Better yet, enjoy fruits and vegetables raw. For herbal teas, try a cold-infusion.
