The Vitamin C Boost Smoothie
Kiwi, Orange & Apple Smoothie
A Winter Remedy Or Refreshing Summer Drink
Sometimes you just need a boost to rid your body of the dreaded germs that are lingering around. Unfortunately in our western world, most of us will not be eating the necessary amount of nutrients needed to keep us in optimal health. Why is this? This is due to the fact that our soil has lost much of it's life-giving nutrients that it once had through endless farming. Our bodies have to fight against pollution, stressful lifestyles and food that has lost much of it's nutrients through processing. Apart from trying harder to eat more healthily, if you feel your body beginning to weaken, grab your blender and make this quick fix that will refuel your body again and replenish the vitamins that it is using in fighting off infection. You will really notice a difference! Even in the Summer, this combination of fresh, juicy fruits will offer the perfect refreshment to keep you cool.

Foods High In Vitamin C
Kiwi fruits, oranges and apples are particularly high in vitamin C and apples have a higher content in the skin, which is why it is even more beneficial if you eat the skin. However, unless it is organic, you might want to weigh up the benefits compared to the disadvantages of eating food that has been sprayed with pesticides. Other foods high in vitamin C include berries, potatoes, green leafed vegetables and other citrus fruits.
