Which foods have more vitamin C than lemon?

She notes that 100 grams of lemon or lemon juice contains about 40 milligrams of ascorbic acid, and the recommended daily intake of this vitamin for adults is 100 milligrams.

The list of foods high in vitamin C is long. They are as follows:

- Rosehip: rosehip berries contain 650 mg of ascorbic acid per 100 g of the product. They make tea from dried berries. The drink helps prevent neuroses, boosts immunity and normalizes blood pressure.

- Sweet pepper: 100 g of this vegetable contain 250 mg of ascorbic acid. You need to limit the cooking time to preserve vitamin C. It is best eaten raw.

- Blackcurrant: a cup of blackcurrant berries contains over a week's amount of vitamin C. They can be consumed fresh or as part of a smoothie.

- Brussels sprouts: 100 g of this vegetable contain 120 mg of vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is preserved when stewing. Brussel sprouts is often included in salads. The vegetable is also recommended for consumption because of its high content of iron and indole-3. The latter compound normalizes the level of estrogen and progesterone. A lot of vitamin C is found in common white cabbage, including sauerkraut.

- Sea-buckthorn: These bright orange berries are high in vitamin C as well as omega-3 fatty acids. The latter are not produced in the body itself. Sea-buckthorn tea is brewed in a thermos and taken throughout the day for prevention and treatment of colds.
