A cold is the most unpleas­ant com­pan­ion of a cold and rainy sea­son. In the off-sea­son, every­one starts to sneeze and cough — both adults and chil­dren.

As a pre­ven­tion of colds, include in your menu foods that are rich in vit­a­min C.

“Lisa” offers you six deli­cious and nat­ur­al sources of ascor­bic acid.


Sci­en­tists have proven that apples not only con­tain vit­a­min C, but also strength­en the heart and blood ves­sels. In addi­tion, these fruits improve metab­o­lism and remove tox­ins from the body, so apples can be safe­ly includ­ed in a weight loss diet.


Ascor­bic acid, vit­a­mins K, B1, fruc­tose and glu­cose are sim­ply nec­es­sary for the nor­mal func­tion­ing of the body. Grapes are a reli­able source of such ben­e­fi­cial sub­stances. But be care­ful — sweet grape fruits are too high in calo­ries.


The berry increas­es hemo­glo­bin, tones the body and helps it cope with virus­es.

How­ev­er, remem­ber that there is a lot of acid in cran­ber­ries, which destroys tooth enam­el and irri­tates the mucous mem­brane of the diges­tive organs. There­fore, despite the ben­e­fits, con­sume the berry in mod­er­a­tion — no more than one glass of fresh cran­ber­ries per day.


Organ­ic acids, tan­nins, dietary fiber, pectins — what is there in cher­ries! The com­po­nents that make up this berry help to increase immu­ni­ty and, among oth­er things, help main­tain a grace­ful fig­ure.


Cur­rant, which is rich in phos­pho­rus, man­ganese, iron and con­tains a suf­fi­cient amount of vit­a­min C, can keep the defens­es of your body at the prop­er lev­el. More­over, the berry is extreme­ly ben­e­fi­cial for the health of nails and skin.


The ener­gy reserve of your body will replen­ish the pome­gran­ate. It will also help the body cleanse itself of harm­ful sub­stances and even pro­tect it from aging. All this is due to phos­pho­rus, man­ganese and, of course, ascor­bic acid.
