Citrus fruits are well known for their high vitamin C content. Vitamin C is well known for its ability to fight colds by boosting your immune system. Vitamin is actually water soluble and the human body does not produce vitamin C. Therefore we should continue to replenish the vitamin C in our bodies

There are various health benefits of having a daily intake of vitamin C. These include defence against stress related illnesses.
