(NaturalNews) Vitamin C is a nutrient that has received a lot of attention over the years. It has been used by many households to combat colds, and is now getting acclaim for treating cancer. It's best to get vitamin C in whole food for its synergistic effect with other nutrients, and these are 5 great ways to do just that.
