Vitamin C

I have been working on a world vegan cookbook since 1985.  As the years go by I write, collect valuable information, and incorporate or change to new statues updates.

The cook book will be only vegan foods with what part of the body it helps or hurts.  Also, a list of herbs for health that goes with those vegan foods.

A couple of years ago my computer that held much information died.  So, I’m re-entering years of information in my new computer.  I find that in life if I lose something then it is obvious I was not meant to have it.  It is the universes way of saying, find a new path better suited for you.  So we learn a new path in life, which creates a new lifestyle.

Honestly change is a good thing.  Change teaches us new lessons and helps set us on our path where we should have been in the first place.

I have a tendency to fall off the vegan path from time to time, simply because I get caught up in other projects.  Then you get sick like a cold and such, which then reminds you to get back on your path of vegan.  So, here I am again lol!!!

I am not for or against information pertaining to vitamins, just passing along information.

Okay according to directory of nutritional supplements –

Vitamin C       Athletic performance (for deficiency or exercise recovery), bronchitis, bruising (for deficiency only), burns (in combination with vitamin E for prevention of sunburn only), capillary fragility, common cold/sore throat, gingivitis (periodontal disease; in combination with flavonoids; for deficiency  only), glaucoma, heart attack (for deficiency), high cholesterol, infection, infertility (male), reflex sympathetic dystrophy (prevention), scurvy, wound healing, asthma, atherosclerosis, autism, cataracts, cold sores, diabetes, dysmenorrhea (plus vitamin B3 {niacin} and rutin), gastritis, immune function, influenza, iron deficiency anemia, lead toxicity, pancreatic insufficiency, pre- and post-surgery health (if deficient), preeclampsia (in combination with vitamin E; for high risk only), schizophrenia, skin ulcers, and sprains and strains.

  • The recommended dietary allowance (RDA) for vitamin C is nonsmoking adults is 75 mg per day for women and 90 mg per day for men. For smokers, the RDAs are 110 mg per day for women and 125 mg per day for men.
  • In the case of the common cold, a review of published trials found that amounts of 2 grams per day in children appear to be more effective than 1 gram per day in adults, suggesting that large intakes of vitamin C may be more effective than smaller amounts, at least for this condition.
