Natural vitamin C from whole foods is a lot more effective than its store-bought version, because it is about how much vitamin C  you absorb, not how much you take.

Vitamin C is important for immunity and for wound healing as well as for the health of the skin and the teeth. Vitamin C helps detoxify and deal with both mental and physical stress. It also neutralizes free radicals, supports healthy gut bacteria and may prevent cancer cells from growing and spreading.

Yellow and red peppers, kiwi, broccoli, dark green leafy vegetables and strawberries are all rich in Vitamin C. Citrus peels, however, are among the richest in this vitamin ( citrus fruits have vitamin C, too, but the peels have a lot more.) I already make quite  a few natural supplements at home, so these can be added to your vitamin C.

Any organic citrus peels left over from the fruit can be used. If you have any orange peel left over, try this easy and natural house cleaning solution.

Homemade Vitamin C Supplement

How To Make Homemade Vitamin C Supplement

Cut the citrus peels into thin strips.

Place them on a cookie sheet, covered with parchment paper and let them dry at room temperature for a couple of days until they are dry and crisp.

Place the dry peel strips into your blender or a coffee grinder and grind them into a powder.

Store the powder in a tightly closed jar in a dark place.

Use one rounded teaspoon of this powder a day to top your yogurt; add it to your tea or throw the powder into your smoothie. My kids love this powder mixed with some raw honey.
