Sure, an orange is a good option. But these surprising picks pack in a nutrient boost, too.
When you think vitamin C, you inevitably think oranges. But what if we told you that this fruit is just kind of meh in the C department compared to some other produce picks? It’s true. While oranges clock in at a very respectable 70 milligrams of vitamin C per medium fruit (the recommended daily value for an adult woman is 75 milligrams), every single one of these refreshing fruits and vegetables contains more per serving - which is good news for your taste buds and your body.
There are loads of vitamin C benefits. The nutrient helps protect cells from the damage caused by things like cigarette smoke, pollution, and UV light from the sun, according to the National Institutes of Health. It also supports wound healing and aids the absorption of iron from plant-based foods.
