The Amazing Benefits of Vitamin C & the Foods That are Loaded With It!
Vitamin C is one of the best known and most taken vitamins in the world because the health benefits are off the charts! Now you can take the over the counter vitamin daily, eat lots of foods that contain this awesome supplement, or do both! But before we tell you the foods, you've got to see this...
First off, loaded with antioxidants, it's amazing at boosting our immune systems by attacking viral cells that try to hurt our system. It strengthens white blood cells which provides anti-viral production. With that being said it can also help to treat a cold as studies have shown the time of a cold can be drastically reduced.
It's also known to actually lower hypertension. Studies have indicated that blood pressure was lowered in both people with and without high blood pressure. Now nitric acid is protected by vitamin C which is known to relax your blood vessels. It also helps to repair damaged tissues in the body and it is recommended that foods rich in vitamin C are what is meant for healing tissue, as opposed to vitamin pills.
How about cardiovascular health? A study showed that 500 milligrams of vitamin C can be as good for your heart as light bouts of exercising. It also fights off strokes. Deficient levels of the vitamin are seen as a real risk for strokes and a study in Japan said that vitamin C helped in actually preventing strokes.
So, what foods are the best way to get your natural doses of incredibly healthy vitamin C? Well, it's mostly loaded in most fruits and vegetables. One green chili pepper has 121 milligrams of vitamin C which is 121% of the daily value! A half a cup of yellow peppers delivers 137 mg, 152% of the DV. Kale has 80 mg – 89% of the DV. And broccoli, which is wickedly healthy has 51 Mgs.
Okay, now lets get serious... one cup of Acerola Cherries – I kid you not – contains 822 mg of vitamin C which is an astounding 913% of the DV! But then there's the Australian superfood, the Kakadu Plum which in 100 grams of the fruit has an astounding 5300 mgs of vitamin C, which is the single most-highest concentration of it!
Other foods that are rich in vitamin C are black currants, brussels sprouts, lemons, strawberries, papayas, oranges, grapefruits, kiwis, guava, pineapple, and parsley.
