Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps protect our cells from free radicals that can damage cells in the body. Vitamin C also contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism and supports the maintenance of the normal psychological function.
I encourage you to buy organic fruits and vegetables. If there is a concern about the cost of the organic produce then look at the suggestions on the ‘The Dirty Dozen & The Clean 15‘ list, which outlines the fruits and vegetables that contain the most and least pesticide residue. This will help you to prioritise which produce should be brought as organic.
