Buy a food that says that it has vitamin C in it. That should be enough. If you want, you can buy special drops to put in the water that contain vitamin C, which is the most important vitamin for guinea pigs. Also give her Timothy hay to help with digestion.
There are liquid vitamins that you can purchase at the pet store to add to your guinea pig's water. I always used Vita-Sol for guinea pigs for mine. You should always use these. However, sometimes guinea pigs need a little more coaxing when you are adding something to their diet. Perhaps holding him and putting the food up to his mouth, and getting him to lick it would help change his mind.
I had a friend who had a sick guinea pig due to a lack of vitamins, and she used to put something(I don't know what it was) in his water.... If you visit petsmart or petco, maybe you can find something
Go to a PetSmart or Petco or any pet shop and consult someone about the products they have.I would not give any vitamins made for people without consulting. The formulations are quite different.Try a variety of recommended foods for your guinea pig,even a few bites of a variety will help close the dietary insufficiencies.
