Dr Oz: Win Your Daily Dose

Dr Oz played a game called Win Your Daily Dose of Vitamin C.  Three ladies from his audience each got to select a door.  Behind each door was a special source of Vitamin C, and one of the doors also came with a special prize.  Did you know that Vitamin C could be the secret reason that you are getting sick and tired?  Vitamin C has many powerful benefits including preventing collagen from being destroyed, and since it is a strong antioxidant it also reduces your risk of Cancer, Heart Disease and Arthritis.  Here are the three Vitamin C Sources that Doctor Oz spoke about:

Dr Oz: How Much Vitamin C Are In Oranges?

Dr Oz revealed door number one, which contained a bunch of oranges.  He said that oranges have almost all of the Vitamin C a person 19 years Dr Oz Vitamin Cold or older needs, because one orange has 70 mg of Vitamin C and you need 75 mg of Vitamin C daily.  The lady who chose door number one won a year’s supply of oranges and the grand prize, which was a trip for two to Ft Lauderdale, Florida.

Dr Oz: Red Peppers & Vitamin C

Doctor Oz said that Red Peppers also have a ton of Vitamin C, even more than oranges.  Green Peppers also have Vitamin C, but only around the same amount as oranges.

Dr Oz: Vitamin C Shortens Colds

Dr Oz said that it is a common misconception that Vitamin C prevents colds.  Research has shown that this is not true, however, Vitamin C can shorten the duration of a cold.  Dr Oz suggested taking 500 mg of Vitamin C as soon as you feel sick, and continue taking it until you feel better.
