As we head into peak cold and flu season it’s more important than ever to eat right and do what you can to boost your immune system. Research shows whenever possible it is best to consume immune supporting nutrients like vitamin C from fresh, natural sources rather than supplements, because complex whole foods provide greater, more potent overall nutritional value and variety.

In fact, one California Navel orange has 90 percent of the daily recommended value of vitamin C in just one.
