Vitamin C is essential for maintaining good health including development of scar tissue. In fact, not getting enough of the vitamin can lead to anaemia, joint pain and infection. Female adults need about 75mg a day, although this depends on your age.
While there are plenty of supplements you can take with the vitamin, it is possible to get enough solely from consuming food.

- Apple Watermelon
- Oranges – obviously!
- Tomatoes – we were surprised at this as well.
- Baked potatoes
