Turns Out Oranges Aren’t The Best Source Of Vitamin C, After All – Huffington Post
So, how much vitamin C do you need? According to the National Institutes of Heath, males over the age of 19 should aim for 90 mg and women for 75 mg. But you don’t need to take supplements to get it. In fact, the best way to get your daily dose of C is by eating a healthy diet, one rich in fruits and vegetables. Oranges, of course, are a great source, but it turns out red peppers are even better. After those two vitamin C bombs, grapefruit, kiwi, green pepper and broccoli are the best sources.
