Supplementation with multiple forms of Vitamin C promotes some of the biggest changes from minimum health toward optimal health. Vitamin C helps to reduce the adverse effects of antibiotics, oral contraceptives, pollution, smoking cigarettes, and steroids.
Vitamin C reserves drop rapidly when we are under stress.

Too much Vitamin C leads to diuretic effects such as diarrhea. The RDA states 60 mg of Vitamin C is necessary to reduce the risk of scurvy. Scurvy causes severe tension in the brain.
