Superfoods with the highest concentration of Vitamin C on Earth in descending order:

1.) Camu Camu fruit

2.) Amla (Indian Gooseberry)

3.) Acerola Cherries.


Common food sources of Vitamin C: oranges, kiwis, cantelope, papaya, strawberries, brussel sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, kale, and peppers.

In my opinion, organic strawberries are medicine.  So-called conventionally grown strawberries are toxic due to the man made chemicals sprayed on them.

There are 60,000 PubMed studies documenting the effects Vitamin C has on nearly every bodily system. 


"Comparing bioavailability of all other oral Vitamin C oral delivery with oral liposomal delivery is like comparing a squirt gun to a fire hose...far surpasses any traditional oral Vitamin C supplement...may sometimes be better than IV injection. - Dr. Thomas E. Levy

"In athletes, Vitamin C supplementation enhances immune function and cuts the risk of catching the common cold." - Yale Journal of Biology and Medicine

"Vitamin C supplementation can increase collagen production by 8-fold improving hair, skin, and connective tissue health." - National Academy of Sciences

"High levels of Vitamin C can reduce work related fatigue in normally healthy subjects." - Nutrition Journal

"Higher blood levels of Vitamin C are associated with a reduced risk of stroke." - Stroke Journal

Vitamin C levels in crops reduced by 30% from 1975 to 1997 according to a Kushi Institute analysis and likely more depletion in the 20+years since then.  Cooking methods such as stir frying and boiling cause a further decrease in Vitamin C content of 38% compared to raw or slightly steamed vegetables.  The only way around this further Vitamin C depletion for people like me whom enjoy their vegetables fully cooked is to use a pressure cooker.

Vitamin C can help our bodies absorb iron, Vitamin E, and zinc. 

Women who have higher levels of Vitamin C tend to have higher levels of the fat suppressing hormone adiponectin.
