Jul 17, 2022 | Nutrition

The issue of vitamin C, a vitamin that helps in quick recovery from colds, is currently topical and recently it has been reported that it would be good to take it as a shield against the corona virus. We should point out that it has not yet been proven by research and is only a recommendation. However, it is important to say that we always talk about the intake of the vitamin through food and less as a preparation because its action is superior. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin and cannot be produced by the body itself. For this reason, everyone should get enough vitamin C through their diet. We inform you which foods are especially rich in vitamin C and which are the benefits for your health.

A handful of blueberries provide you with 100 milligrams of vitamin C. Try them as a snack and it’s worth it.
