Seeing The Wonders of Vitamin C


Fruits have been notably a health source to a balanced diet for many years. With the right portion, you can mark a tick off your daily vitamin intake checklist. This is because fruits contain various types of natural vitamins and antioxidants that are beneficial to health. The natural antioxidants in fruits and vegetables will help keep your body working at its best – a diet that meets your daily recommended amount of fruits and vegetables is one of the best ways to give your body a strong defence against diseases.

Out of the many vitamins available, Vitamin C is essential to protect the immune system, reduces the severity of allergic reactions and helps to fight off infections. It also plays an important role in bone formation, wound healing and the maintenance of healthy gums. The other interesting fact about Vitamin C is that it battles the effects of free radicals and encourages collagen production.

Complementing the benefits Vitamin C has, antioxidants further prevents free radical damage that have been associated with cancer development. Although the human body creates its own antioxidants, the amount is insufficient; we are still highly dependent on external sources to boost immunity to the body. These external sources are commonly found in fruits, vegetables and other natural food sources for a rich foundation of dietary antioxidants.

According to Malaysian Dietary Guidelines 2010 by the Ministry of Health Malaysia, we need at least two (2) servings of fruits and three (3) servings of vegetables a day. Studies have also shown that only 6% of Malaysians eat enough fruits and vegetables, which is a drop from 7.5% from last year. Some of the more common factors are that Malaysians live a busy lifestyle – having a balanced meal with the right portion of fruits seem to be less important, and the majority of the people today are often on-the-go, the preference lies with meals that are quick and easy. The most convenient method to consume natural Vitamin C filled with antioxidants is through a nutritious glass of fruit juice.

How Much Do You Know About Fruit Juices?

Juicing of fruits helps to provide with the right amount of vitamins that are broken into smaller molecules for an easier absorption to the body. Juices are convenient and they are easier for those who are always on-the-go. How can we match up with our busy lifestyles and yet, get our daily vitamin boost? MARIGOLD PEEL FRESH makes it easier for Malaysians to top up their daily requirement for essential vitamins with its juices that are fortified with Vitamins A, C and E, helping you get more nutritious goodness in every drop that’s available in both Regular (a choice of nine flavours) and No Sugar Added Range (available in six flavours).

Here are some of the suggested fruits and vegetables filled with nutritional goodness to kick-start your day:


  • Reacts like a sponge and stimulates intestinal peristalsis, and expels the disease-producing toxins from the body
  • Helps support immune function, cardiovascular health, promotes good vision, cell protection, and help to maintain skin hydration
  • Vitamin C is the primary water-soluble antioxidant in the body, disarming free radicals and preventing damage in the aqueous environment both inside and outside cells

Purple Veggies

  • Purple vegetables such as beetroot, purple carrots and purple potatoes are filled with Vitamin C and antioxidants – a boost to the immune system
  • The blue and purple pigments found in these purple vegetables help to improve memory, enhance vision, act as anti-inflammatories, and even help control weight
  • Not only do they help eliminate constipation, irregularity and discomfort, the insoluble fibre contained in these root vegetables help sustain high energy levels for long periods of time


  • Berries like acai berries, blueberries, mulberries, raspberries and cranberries support heart, brain and bone health
  • While these berries are small, they contain a huge kick in nutritional benefits due to the high-levels of antioxidants
  • Good source of dietary fibre and Vitamin C to aid in increasing energy levels and boosting immune system

Some of these purple veggies and berries may not be readily available at your neighbourhood grocer.
