Yes, an orange may be easy to eat but a little imagination is all you need to add the others to your table. The peppers and parsley can be part of a cold salsa dip, for example (keeping in mind that most raw foods provide more nutrients to our bodies).
Vitamin C increases our body's ability to assimilate iron and converts the iron into a much more soluble form. Vitamin C is important for the health of our eyes, there is 25% more vitamin C in the eye liquid than in blood plasma! It plays an important role in the health of our skin, gums, joints, lungs, and more.
Vitamin C is stolen from our bodies by oral contraceptives, tobacco, aspirin, cortisone, antibiotics, stress, and baking soda.
No nead to boycott the eating of oranges but do add some of the other sources to your diet to keep your immune and other systems healthy!
*This is my favorite! I first tried it this summer and it is delicious!
