If you’re on painkillers – especially for chronic pain – this is important: Regularly taking over-the-counter pain meds, like aspirin or ibuprofen, can drain your tissues of vitamin C. And that can lead to MORE pain – like achy joints, inflamed gums and frequent bruising. So eat a cup of produce with a high vitamin C content every day if you’re taking pain medication – like citrus, strawberries, kiwi or red peppers. It can prevent achy joints and other pain issues entirely.
