Tropical fruits such as papaya, mango and pineapple also contain this vitamin. Add them to strips, fruit salads or just enjoy them for a delicious and nutritious boost. To diversify your vitamin C intake, look out for natural foods like guava, black currants and acerola cherries.

If it becomes difficult to get enough vitamin C, you should look into vitamin enriched foods. Many cereals, fruit juices and dairy alternatives are fortified with vitamin C, providing an additional source of this vitamin.

Supplements available in the form of tablets, capsules or powders can also fill a nutritional gap. However, it is important to seek individualized advice from your doctor regarding the appropriate dosage and duration of supplementation.
