Linus Pauling claimed that megadoses of Vitamin C--best ingested as crystals, not pills--causes the now highly acidic tissues of one's body to become inhospitable to germs.Except don't you just end up urinating out all the extra Vitamin C anyway? It'll stave off scurvey, of course... but other than being yummy I don't believe it has any huge benefits for colds.My wife makes me take vitimin c when I have a cold, I do it to make her happy and, well, I like it so no harm no foul. But do I think it's helping me get over the cold? Not really.
