Vitamin C is the only vitamin proven time and time again, to increase the human lifespan, when taken in doses that exceed dietary recommendations. Dr. Linus Pauling, two time noble prize winner for chemistry, was a pioneer in this field of nutrition.
He is the author of several books on the subject, including “How to Live Longer and feel Better”. In this New York Times best seller, he detailed the numerous benefits of vitamin C, including preventing the common cold and protecting smokers. A recent research study shows that vitamin C actually prevents vitamin E loss in smokers. The study also reveals how vitamins work together to protect the body. Vitamin C is the number one defense against free radicals that destroy lung tissue.
