Vitamin C intake and susceptibility to the common cold
- MedicineBritish Journal of Nutrition
Six largest vitamin C supplementation studies are analysed, and it is shown that common cold incidence is not reduced in the vitamin C-supplemented groups compared with the placebo groups, although the effect seems quantitatively meaningful only in limited groups of people and is not very large.
Nutrition Discussion Forum
Hemila (1997) has carried out a literature review and a meta-analysis to determine whether there is convincing evidence that supplements of vitamin C can decrease human susceptibility to natural…

- MedicineEuropean journal of clinical investigation
The findings indicate that vitamin C supplementation may also influence the conditions for cholesterol gallstone formation in humans.

Effect of deficiency of vitamins C and/or E on lipoprotein metabolism in osteogenic disorder Shionogi rat, a strain unable to synthesize ascorbic acid.
- BiologyJournal of nutritional science and vitaminology
The results suggest that lipid peroxidation and some distinct features of lipoprotein metabolism resulting from vitamin C deficiency become more significant when vitamin E is also deficient along with vitamin E deficiency.
Lead induced dyslipidemia: The comparative effects of ascorbate and chelation therapy
The study indicates that administration of the antioxidant, Asc may not be more efficacious than the chelating agents but could be a cheaper and more convenient therapy for lead toxicity.
Vitamin C supplementation and the common cold--was Linus Pauling right or wrong?
- BiologyInternational journal for vitamin and nutrition research. Internationale Zeitschrift fur Vitamin- und Ernahrungsforschung. Journal international de vitaminologie et de nutrition
Linus Pauling's general conclusion that vitamin C has physiological effects on the common cold is of major importance as it conflicts with the prevailing consensus that the only physiological effect of vitamin C on human beings is to prevent scurvy.
