Citrus Salsa

Jan 7, 2021 | Snack

You may know Vitamin C as a super antioxidant that can help support a healthy immune system but did you also know it can support healthy skin and eye health too! 

 

Navel organs are known for their rich source of vitamin C. This powerful antioxidant could possibly reduce the duration of a cold by as much as 8% in adults. 

 

Vitamin C is needed to produce collagen, a necessary protein for wound healing. And finally, there is some research to support that vitamin C may slow the progression of age-related eye disease. 

 

Let’s freshen up our winter days with a sweet & spicy salsa. My Citrus salsa is a great addition to grilled fish and chicken or serve with tortilla chips!
