Fruit and vegetables are the best sources of vitamin C, some good sources include:
- Citrus fruits
- Black currants
- Brussel sprouts
As you can see there are plenty of sources of vitamin C in our diet and fortunately a selection of these foods are available all year round!
Low levels of vitamin C may result in scurvy; in the 1700’s the British Navy found that oranges and lemons could prevent it. It wasn’t until the 1930’s that it was determined that the beneficial compound was vitamin C!
