Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that our bodies cannot produce, and it’s important for healthy immune function. It also has the ability to stop or slow tumor growth by maintaining healthy cells in your body.  However, most people aren’t getting enough of this important nutrient every day. Lack of enough vitamin C can lead to many health problems like scurvy which causes pain in joints and muscles; cracks at the corners of the mouth; inflamed gums; bleeding from nose or gums (caused by easy bruising); sore throat (which may be severe).  Other symptoms include fever with chills, fatigue, listlessness, irritability, depression, and shortness of breath.

A new study has found that vitamin C can help to prevent cancer. The research found that people who take high doses of vitamin C had a reduced risk of some types of cancer, including lung and prostate cancers.  A person’s diet should include foods rich in vitamin C such as citrus fruits, broccoli, strawberries, kale, and bell peppers. Vitamin C is also available in supplements or by injection for those who are unable to consume enough through their regular diet.  This blog post will explore how the findings from this recent study on the benefits of vitamin C might change what you eat or if you take supplements regularly.
