Vitamin C Rich Indian Recipes | Meals High in Vitamin C | Vitamin C Rich Juices and Salad. Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, is dominant in fresh fruits and vegetables.

Hence a constant supply of Vitamin C through diet is very crucial. We show you meals high in Vitamic C. 

The most important function of Vitamin C is its immune fighting effect. It forms an important defense against cold and cough. As a powerful antioxidant, it can neutralize the harmful effects of free radicals formed in our body due to stress and pollution, which play a role in ageing, heart diseases and cancer.

Meals high in Vitamin C are also needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It forms an important protein used to make skin, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.
