Vitamin C may help shorten colds

It's no secret that citrus delivers a healthy dose of vitamin C (51 mg in an orange, 38 mg in a grapefruit, and 30 mg in a lemon). And while vitamin C can't prevent colds, research suggests it might reduce the duration and severity of them, explains Marisa Moore, RD, spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics. Studies show that the vitamin could help shorten the duration of your symptoms by about a day—which can make a big difference when you're feeling unwell.
