Does anybody else hear Prof. Frink's voice (from The Simpsons, but I didn't need to tell YOU that,) when they read the word "bio-FLAVO-noids!"


At one point the world's largest supply of vitamin C was in the US sewer system, as Americans were taking in so much more than their bodies could handle they were literally peeing it away. Thankfully as far as vitamins go, vitamin C is one of the least bothersome at absurdly high concentrations.

Before you go taking a vitamin C supplement, you might want to ask yourself when the last time was that someone you knew suffered from or died from scurvy. If the answer to that is never then you might not really be in need of more vitamin C.


@lparsons42: Vitamin c does way more than prevent scurvy. Your body requires millions of natural chemical reactions to function properly and prevent disease. Vitamin C is necessary in most of these. Ask yourself: When was the last time someone I know died from a disease like cancer?


@mcjiver: I can tell you there are plenty of critical reactions in the body that do not require vitamin C. To say that most reactions require vitamin C is not even remotely close to accurate. It is a useful compound but the levels in which the average American already consumes it there is seldom a need for more.


Not sure if the rose hips aren't simply the source of the vitamin C but listed separately. In Russia, rose hips are farmed for vitamin C as citrus sources are insufficient...may be true lots of places.


@thomasr: Here is an interesting wiki article about Rose Hip, that you could read.

Rose Hip is known as a major plant source of Vitamin C, but it is not the only source as we know.

In this case the label components are these:

Vitamin C 500 mg 833%
Citrus Bioflavonoids (orange) (Citrus spp.) (fruit) 25 mg *
Wild Rose Hips 14 mg *
*Daily Value not established.

Other Ingredients: Ascorbic Acid, Vegetable Cellulose, Citrus Bioflavonoids, Rose Hips, Vegetable Stearic Acid, Silica, Vegetable Magnesium Stearate


The Mayo Clinic site has clearly written, easily understood comments about Vitamin C, including daily levels suggested for preventing or resolving various medical matters:


I couldn't get the 10% off coupon code to work; I ended up on Amazon, about the same price when I checked shipping costs. (I have Amazon Prime.)


Vitamin C supplementation is not necessary in most cases. There is no evidence that vitamin C improves health functions other than to relieve insufficiency or deficiency of vitamin C (this should be diagnosed by a doctor). Fortunately vitamin C is not harmful unless taken at very high doses, so supplementation won't be likely to harm you.

"There is a clear trend in the evidence we have to date. The benefits of routine supplementation are unproven. High doses of vitamins probably cause more harm than good. If you are concerned about your nutrition then improve your diet." - Dr Steven Novella

Save your money and stop paying for vitamins, if you think you have a insufficiency or deficiency then see a doctor (a real doctor, not a nutritionist or naturopath).
