Some of the major food sources of vitamin C are oranges, pepper, strawberries, and pawpaw to mention a few of the natural sources of the vitamin. It is also very important to put into consideration the daily requirement of vitamin C which ranges for 40mg/ day for little children to 90mg/day for an adult.
