Vitamin C
This is probably the one that everyone knows about. Vitamin C is a super antioxidant; it is needed for a strong immune system, radiant skin and helps blemishes heal properly. The best sources are blackcurrants, blueberries, broccoli, guava, kiwi fruits, oranges, papaya, strawberries and sweet potatoes. They all help to produce collagen that strengthens the capillaries that supply the skin. Increasing your intake of vitamin C can be as simple as sprinkling blueberries on top of your cereal or porridge or eating an orange as an afternoon snack. Try to stay away from smoothies though which tend to be very high in sugar!

I always drink orange juice throughout the school year to help fight off any bugs that go around but I had no idea broccoli and sweet had vitamin C as well! That's really good to know. I wonder if there are any immune booster recipes using some of these ingredients.
This is music to my ears - I always eat lots of sweet potatoes but like @pixiedust I had no idea they were packed with Vitamin C...I guess I'll just have to keep eating them!
