Vitamin C is essential for maintaining a healthy immune system. Incorporate vitamin C-rich drinks into your diet for a tasty way to reach daily recommendations, 75 mg for women and 90 mg for men. Explore these five effective vitamin C drinks to add to your diet.

1. Orange Juice

Orange juice is a popular breakfast drink for Americans. A single glass of fresh orange juice can provide you with significant vitamin C.

Juicernet’s commercial citrus juicers extract the maximum juice from fruit. Professional juicing equipment minimizes peel oil for the best-tasting orange juice, whether you use a countertop juicer (Ceado S98) or a larger appliance like the Second-Generation Commercial Cold-Pressed Juicer (MFJ).

2. Pineapple Juice

Pineapple juice has a delightful tropical flavor, and it’s packed with vitamin C. It tastes great on its own or paired with other fruits, such as apples, pears, and oranges.

Juicernet carries state-of-the-art pineapple coring machines, including the self-serve Piñabar. In 20 seconds, the Piñabar peels and cores a pineapple with minimal waste.

3. Grapefruit Juice

Tangy grapefruit juice is another citrus fruit rich in vitamin C. The grapefruit is often characterized by its bitter flavor, but some, like the Rio Red grapefruit, taste sweet.

Not only does vitamin C support your immune system, but it also supports collagen production, which contributes to healthy skin and joints. Consider pairing grapefruit with ginger, basil, strawberries, or pineapple for a unique flavor profile.

Grapefruit and Medicine

Grapefruit can interfere with certain over-the-counter and prescribed medications. Talk to your health care provider or pharmacist or read the information provided with your medicine before drinking grapefruit juice.

4. Tomato Juice

Not fond of citrus flavors? A glass of tomato juice is an effective vitamin C drink to add to your diet. On top of vitamin C, tomatoes are rich in folate and potassium.

Mix tomato juice with chopped celery, onions, salt, pepper, optional Tabasco sauce, and sugar to taste. You can also add tomato juice to savory mocktails and cocktails.

5. Lemonade or Limeade

Lemonade is a sweet and sour summertime favorite, while limeade tastes more tangy. Either citrus-based drink offers nostalgia in a glass, and these fruits may aid digestion, as their citric acid boosts gastric acid production.

Consider blending your citrus drink with other juices to avoid adding sugar. You can make lemonade with fresh pineapple or limeade with strawberries.
