C vitamin is one of the most important vitamins for our health. It is very important during warm season as it works as a skin antioxidant as well during the cold season as it also protects our bodies from infections. It helps in the absorption of more vitamins as well as in the healing of wounds.

Red pepper.

There are many different ways of eating red peppers; fresh in a salad or cooked in a sauce. Irrespective of how they are taken, red peppers are a very good source of C vitamin and should be consumed more often.
