This article busts the myths about Vitamin C supplements helping you stay away from the doctor. However, the best way to stay away from the doctor is some super foods!
Just because remedies for the common cold are commonplace, doesn’t mean they’re effective. Here are the hard facts about common-cold care.
Although getting appropriate amounts of vitamin C is very important for maintaining a healthy immune system, research has found that large supplemental doses don’t seem to do much of anything. In fact, it’s been proven that vitamin C in amounts greater than 200 mg — that’s more than double the RDA — had no additional effects of boosting immunity or preventing colds. For those who feel compelled to take an extra supplemental dose, stick with 200 mg (certainly not more than 500). But nothing beats getting a boost naturally by eating plenty of vitamin C–rich foods such as bell peppers, broccoli, oranges, and strawberries.http://www.joybauer.com/photo-gallery/common-cold/skip-the-vitamin-c-supplements.aspx
