Do you get vitamin C from fruit?
of course and for your personal info you get vitamin d from the sun
Boiled fruit can contain less Vitamin C for a couple reasons. The first reason is damage to the Vitamin C chemical structure. Heat easily destroys Vitamin C. The boiling of fruit introduces the Vitamin C to heat. The second reason is leeching. When you cook using "wet" methods (cooking procedures using water or other liquid) the vitamins and minerals can literally leak out of the fruit and into the surrounding water/liquid.
No vitamins are as effective & healthy as consuming fresh fruit; it is said that consuming vitamins along with a diet with enough vitamin c intake makes them more effective. If one cannot get enough vitamin c from their diet it is very important to take supplements because it is healthier than no vitamin c intake.
