Who Needs Extra Vitamin C?
Although all of us need vitamin c there are others who need it more than us. Who are they?
1. Elderly Folks
As one grows older the ability to absorb vitamin c also decreases.

Smoking not only harms the lungs but it also depletes vitamin C from the body.
3. Undergoing Surgery
If you are undergoing surgery you would need an increased dose of vitamin C as your body would need it to recover.
