3 healthy and delicious vitamin C-rich drinks to try out this summer
Long lazy summer days are upon us, and magical moments are made when family come together, the sun is shining and there are ice-cold drinks being served.
Vitamin C is commonly known for its role in boosting immune system function, minimising your risk of catching a cold or flu.
This vitamin also acts as a powerful antioxidant, protecting cells from the damaging effects of free radicals and reducing your risk of developing chronic disease.
So, savour the goodness of summer days with a grape and ginger ale punch or an apple cranberry cocktail.
