Are you getting enough vitamin C?
Did you know that peppers, cabbage and broccoli contain more vitamin C than kiwis, lemons, strawberries or oranges which are considered especially rich in vitamin C?
Did you know that grains (even whole grains) and all products made of it, e.g. bread, pasta, pastries but rice, too, don't contain any vitamin C? Hence, those who mainly eat bread and other grain products are definitely part of the population which doesn't get sufficient vitamin C.
Only eating five servings of (raw) fruits and vegetables get you enough vitamin C. Vitamin-scientists recommend those who can't follow this diet to take additional vitamin C as supplement.

Acerola Vitamin C Powder and the heart
Dr. Linus Pauling emphasizes the following in his book “Das Vitamin Programm”, “fortunately, vitamin C isn't a drug – it's an orthomolecular vital substance, normally contained in the human body and of minimal toxicity.
Those who want to take vitamin C to improve their health in the best possible way neither need a prescription nor the medical establishment's consent. The laymen’s knowledge and ability to judge can be superior to the physicians' in this regard.”
How much vitamin C is too much?
Two-time noble prize laureate Dr. Linus Pauling was the best-known vitamin C expert. Until his death at the age of 93 he took 18,000mg vitamin C daily.
As a scientist he dealt with this vital substance for years. He was convinced that it can increase quality of life significantly and prolong life for many years.
Vitamin C is safe even in extremely high doses. Some may get loose stools or diarrhea at a dosage above 1,000mg/day. These symptoms, however, are absolutely harmless and disappear when the dose is lowered.
Vitamin C is continually associated with the formation of kidney stones. It's true that too much vitamin C is eliminated by the kidneys, but kidney stones certainly won't form. On the contrary: it protects them.
