Citrus fruits – Rely on Vitamin C to boost your immunity

Citrus fruits like Orange, Lemon, Sweet Lime, Grapes, etc., are excellent sources of Vitamin C that strengthens our body’s ability to fight against diseases that are common. They also contain good amounts of other vitamins and minerals that provide a host of health benefits apart from plant compounds with anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory effects.

Our body requires regular intake of Vitamin C. So it is important to add various forms of citrus fruits in appropriate levels to our every day diet.

Citrus fruits also contain good amounts of fibers that help in digestive health, reduction of bad cholesterol and aiding weight loss.

They give us the best benefits when they are consumed as whole fruits than in a serving of fruit juice. More sugar per serving of fruit juice will increase calories.
