Did you know?

  • Citrus fruits are rich in Vitamin C, one of the principal antioxidants in the human body.
  • Vitamin C stimulates the immune system and helps our bodies absorb iron from food. For example, you can make it easier to absorb the iron contained in fresh spinach by adding slices of orange or grapefruit to your salad.
