Does Vitamin C cause further nasal congestion when you have a cold?

    Good question! No, Vitamin C does not cause further nasal congestion when you have a cold. In fact, it does the exact opposite according to one study. It lowered the histamine (which is thought to contribute to congestion) levels in people by either lowing the actual amount of histamine in the blood or increasing the amount of Vitamin C.

    Vitamin C helps protect the immune system, fight eye disease, and skin wrinkling.  Researchers state that proper Vitamin C levels can improve a person’s overall health.  Added congestion during illness is probably a sign of the sinus infection worsening, instead of an effect from Vitamin C.
