Vitamin C is an antioxidant with diverse uses in health promotion and disease prevention. A few of its mighty powers are that it can combat the oxidative damage caused by smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke, shorten the duration of common colds or serious respiratory conditions like asthma, and help prevent blood vessel changes that can lead to strokes. These major effects on the body happen at doses higher than the 75-90 mg of vitamin C recommended by the government (Health, 2013). Vitamin C is in both our original Myers’ Cocktail and in our Myers’ Cocktail with Immune System Boost. If you would like to inquire about doses of vitamin C above those levels, please talk with Dr. Sara Whitney, ND directly to see if it is right for you.
