Vitamin C has been clearly shown to have no effect on helping you get better from the common cold and overdosing on it can cause harm.

Vitamin C: not just for the common cold

By Karen Appold

Everyone knows that when you have a cold, you should take vitamin C. That’s because it fights viruses, bacteria and infection. It will also act as an antihistamine, relieving aches, inflammation and runny nose.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, has many other uses. In addition to aiding your immune system, it helps to maintain healthy teeth, bones and cartilage, as well as grow and repair tissues. It also helps to form the protein that your body uses to make blood vessels, skin, tendons and ligaments.

A powerful antioxidant
As an antioxidant, vitamin C gets rid of free radicals in your body. Free radicals can cause cell damage that medical experts suspect may lead to atherosclerosis, which can cause heart disease, stroke and many types of cancer, as well as osteoarthritis and pre-eclampsia in pregnant women.

Ascorbic acid has been proven to lower blood pressure, which lowers your chance of getting hypertension. It also enables proper dilation of blood vessels. Both of these functions reduce your risk of heart disease.
