Our Strawberry Banana Smoothies and Vitamin C

Our Strawberry Banana Smoothies and Vitamin C

Vitamin C is an important part of our daily nutrient needs. Vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron and the formation of collagen in the body. It also aids in repairing wounds and gives us energy. It is important that we get our daily dose of Vitamin C.

 

Our natural source of Vitamin C comes from fresh fruits and vegetables, especially citrus. In order to maintain good health, we need to include at least one serving of fruit in our diet every day. Here are 3 ingredients found in this smoothie drink which are high in Vitamin C.

Bananas

Bananas are an excellent source of Vitamin C. Just a medium-sized banana packs in 40% of the recommended daily allowance for this important vitamin. Bananas offer a wide range of health benefits, from promoting good vision and cardiovascular health to fighting cancer and aiding weight management.

Bananas also contain a lot of Vitamin A which is the antioxidant that helps you be healthy. The antioxidants in bananas have been known to help with weight loss because they inhibit hunger and control blood sugar levels.

Strawberries

Strawberries are also an excellent source of Vitamin C, and they contain a significant amount of vitamin A as well. You can find more than 50% of your daily dose of Vitamin C in just four ounces of raw strawberries. They also offer antioxidants to help fight cancer, keep your memory sharp, and delay the aging process. 

 

Cauliflower

Cauliflower provides a high Vitamin C content. It only takes one cup of cauliflower to provide about half your daily vitamin C needs. Vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron and the formation of collagen in the body. It also aids in repairing wounds and gives us energy. Vitamin C is important for our immune system, reducing inflammation, and preventing cancer.
