Vitamin B and C

Okay my doctor told me that I need to eat more foods with Vitamin B and C. I have been really watching what I eat lately. What foods are high in these vitamins but are still healthy to eat?

Vitamin c is really easy to get through fruits and veg. One kiwi fruit can provide over 100% of your rda of vitamin c.


Vitamin B is found in various animal products and eggs, or you can get it in beans, rice, peas

Yes, I would highly suggest any citrus fruits such as oranges, lemons, limes, juices, and leafy green vegetables! Not that cheap iceberg lettuce which has mostly water and no vitamins. Romaine lettuce, green leaf, red leaf lettuce, and butter lettuce are all full of vitamins.

Oranges are my favorite source of Vitamin C, and red meat is my favorite source of B-vitamins. You can also supplement both of those, though, if you're not a fan of citrus fruits or animal products.

Did he happen to mention what type of B vitamin that he'd like you to increase? There is a long list of B vitamins. Some of the most common are; B1 thiamine, B2 riboflavin, B3 niacin, B9 folic acid, B12 cobalamin. Maybe a good quality B multivitamin would be in order?

There are B vitamins (B12) that can only be got from animal or synthetic sources. It isn't available in plant foods. So you really might be better off getting a B vitamin complex.
