Wellness Tip of the Week: C Vitamins!

The DubWell Tip of the Week is about vitamin C. This is what The Nutrition Source website of the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health ( states about this important nutrient:


Vitamin C plays a role in controlling infections and healing wounds, and is a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize harmful free radicals. It is needed to make collagen, a fibrous protein in connective tissue that is weaved throughout various systems in the body: nervous, immune, bone, cartilage, blood, and others. The vitamin helps make several hormones and chemical messengers used in the brain and nerves.


Fruits and vegetables are the best sources of this vitamin.

  • Citrus (oranges, kiwi, lemon, grapefruit)
  • Bell peppers
  • Strawberries
  • Tomatoes
  • Cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower)
  • White potatoes

Also, did you know that combining foods like strawberries with iron-rich plants like spinach helps the body absorb the iron in the leafy greens? Delicious and nutritious! 🍓🍓🍓


Be well,

Ms. Davis
