Very typical SD comment thread. Most SDers would buy and eat absolutely junks if given cheap or free, but when good stuffs are on sale, naysayers show up!

Don't worry, if this works for you it works. Let not people say otherwise.
Yes so many cynics and pessimists. If you feel that I'm wrong just provide the proper information so everyone can benefit. Posting links from a reputable source goes a long way.

Summary of my interactions on this thread
Me: I had a good experience with Vit C!

Naysayer#1: Nope

Me: Link?

Naysayer#2: Here's a peer-reviewed​ scient-- I mean random quote of some dude's "research"

Me: Mmmk Vit C helped me out fast and it can't hurt to use it asap when you have a cold.

Naysayer#3: Jesus Christ you must've voted for Trump

Based on your .gov website "Some pharmacokinetic studies in humans have shown transient and small comparative differences between synthetic and natural vitamin C, although these differences are likely to have minimal physiological impact"

you're not looking for answers, youre grasping for anything that will feed your "i took C and it cured my cold" narrative.

you can literally put in the 3 words "vitamin c cold" into google and get every single result telling you vitamin C is good for you and it does strengthen immune system but it does jack shit for curing flu or common cold on the spot.

but you're not actually looking for info, youre either trolling or doing everything possible to hang on to your anecdotal belief by deflecting in this thread. youre basically in the same group as people who think vaccines cause autism, global warming is not real, and hurricanes are caused by gay people.

A closer look at the therapeutic trials suggests the greatest potential for benefit in symptom severity and duration occurs when vitamin C treatment is no less than 5 days and initiated within 24 hours of symptom onset.2 All but one trial (included in the Hemilä and Chalker2 meta-analysis) assessing the therapeutic effects of vitamin C in which supplementation was given for at least 5 days showed significant reduction in duration of cold symptoms.4-6 Three studies support initiating vitamin C within 24 hours of cold symptom onset.7-9 The first study by Anderson et al, found benefit from vitamin C when it was administered on the first day of illness but did not compare these results to vitamin C initiated at a later interval.7 A second study by Regnier, found that vitamin C administered beyond the first or second day of illness is not effective in lessening symptoms or shortening cold duration.8 The last study, by Asfora, found a significantly shortened cold duration compared to other medications (aspirin, etc) when vitamin C was initiated within 24 hours of symptom onset (3.6 days versus 6,9 days, respectively).9 However, when vitamin C therapy was initiated outside of the first day of illness, no significant difference was found between groups.
Quote :
It appears the greatest potential for benefit of vitamin C in treating the common cold occurs when supplementation is initiated within 24 hours of symptom onset at high doses (~8 g daily) and when therapy is continued for at least 5 days.
Quote :
One large trial with adults reported benefit from an 8 g therapeutic dose at the onset of symptoms, and two therapeutic trials using five-day supplementation reported benefit. More trials are necessary to settle the possible role of therapeutic vitamin C, meaning administration immediately after the onset of symptoms.
It appears you're the one grasping to hold on to the general consensus that vitamin C is not a magic cure for the common cold. The above quotes from your links purporting to disprove my experience, which you have very little information about, actually supports my claim of seeing benefit at early stage of the cold with vitamin C supplementation.

Hold on. It appears to me that... you got a taste of your own medicine. Badum-tsh

Next time, instead of going by what strangers on the internet said, try actually reading the links you're using to tear me down. I came into this thread to share my experience of benefit from vitamin C and maybe prevent some cold-induced suffering. A noble cause, really. Too bad you can't see that.

Here's a free tip: Instead of calling people on the internet morons and injecting politics into an online thread for a deal on vitamins, try and think "Am I going to make an ass out of myself for posting this?" Take a moment to reflect and proceed as necessary. That backspace button is there for a reason.wave

"Does jack shit for curing flu or common cold on the spot." Did you actually read any of those articles you posted??? Did you notice the part explaining the biochemistry of how vitamin c works as an antioxidant for immune cells so taking large bolus amounts may help replenish those already used up antioxidants stores to help further kill infection? Bottom line is the jury is still out on vitamin c and the NIH isnt going to fund research on a naturally occurring substance that cant generate profit. So if someone claims they experienced instant relief there isnt enough definitive scientific evidence to disprove that claim.

For healthy individuals going through seasonal cold/flu/fever, the best way to get vitamin C is through foods (Guava, Tomatoes, Strawberries, Oranges...). Warm soups with tomatoes, veggies, & chicken broth are even better
