A Daily Doze of Vitamin C

In my house, I see to it that I always have a stock of Vitamin C. I make sure that my kids take 500 mg everyday and 1000 mg for me and my hubby. Vitamin C not only keeps our body healthy but it strengthens our immune system as well to help us fight diseases. But that's not the only benefit we get from taking Vitamin C. I read in one article that women who took Vitamin C for 10 years or more are less prone to having cataract ( a clouding of the lens of the eye or its surrounding transparent membrane that obstructs the passage of light).

Many experts believe that taking 1000 mg of Vitamin C everyday is safe and effective. I remember how my mom used to remind us when we were younger to take it everyday, now I'm the one telling this to my kids.

I still wonder just how many carrots we need to eat to have "goog eyes". My mom always said we needed carrots for good eye sight... I think it had something to do with the vitamin C in them or so they thought... Hmmmmmmm.... I would rather take the vitamin C myself... (And take stock out in Airborne too!)
