Did you know that strawberries have more vitamin C than oranges?
Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is used to form an important protein used to make skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels, heal wounds and form scar tissue. Vitamin C may not be the cure for the common cold (though it’s thought to prevent more serious complications). The benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling. Vitamin C is also one of the most effective nutrients to help grow and strengthen hair.
