Of all the vitamins and minerals consumed by millions of people around the world, vitamin C has attracted more attention than any other for more than 30 years. It has been proven to play an important role in almost every aspect of our health and it is therefore not surprising that it has been a subject of great interest and research for decades.

The benefits of Vitamin C are not confined to the prevention of scurvy, a debilitating disease caused by its deficiency. Scientific studies have also discovered that it is potentially important in the prevention of major chronic diseases and some allergic disorders. It has also been known to prevent and relieve viral infections including the common cold and influenza or flu. It is also vital for maintaining a healthy immune system.

In recent years, scientists have continued to study this wonder vitamin. Among others, they have found the answers to questions such as: "How much vitamin C is sufficient?" ; "What type of vitamin C is best?" ; and "Is there any adverse effect if vitamin C is consumed in excess?"

For the following few posts I will discuss with you about this wonder vitamin. So keep up with this blog to add information in your knowledge box. :)
