Vitamin C is found in high concentrations in immune cells, and is consumed quickly during infections; however there's been no proven evidence that Vitamin C "enhances the immune system", "prevents disease" or is "good for skin". However vitamin c does prevent scurvy. ;)

Please don't misunderstand me. I am not saying that Vitamin C isn't helpful. While it's properties have benefits as anti- and pro- oxidants and antihistamine, many claims about it just have never been proven by studies. the wiki article at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vitamin_C has some pretty good explanations of the beneficial properties of vitamin c while debunking the myths of it being some type of nearly "miracle" drug.

Taking excess vitamin C usually just results in expensive pee. Your body can only handle so much at one time and any extra is just excreted.
