I randomly write any topic about health here which I find interesting and informative. Wealth topic is also published here so that you will get some ideas on how to earn money too. Health and Money Awareness are my objectives in writing in this blog.


If aspirin and standard Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) are taken in large doses, stomach irritation can occur, possibly leading to ulcers. If you take aspirin regularly, use an esterified form of Vitamin C and take it separately from the aspirin.

Avoid using chewable vitamin C supplements, as thes can damage the enamel. Alcohol, analgesics, antidepressants, anticoagulants, oral contraceptive and steroids may reduce levels of Vitamin C in the body. Smoking causes serious depletion of Vitamin C. Diabetes medications such as diabenese and sulfa drugs may not be as effective if taken with Vitamin C. Taking high doses of Vitamin C may cause a false-negative reading in tests for blood in the stool. Vitamin C is anti-oxidant.

Studies have shown that taking Vitamin C can reduce symptoms of asthma. It protects against harmful pollution, helps to prevent cancer, protect against infection and enhances immunity. Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron. It is also essential in the formation of collagen. Vitamin C protects against abnormal blood clotting and bruising and may reduce the risk of cataracts, and promotes the healing of wounds and burns. Vitamin C works synergistically with both Vitamin E and beta-carotene- that is when these vitamins work together they have an effect greater than the sum of their individual effects.

Vitamin E scavenges for dangerous free radicals in cell membrane while Vitamin C attacks free radicals in biologic fluids. These vitamins reinforce and extend each other's antioxidant activity.
