Does vitamin C really promote the immune system?

Vitamin C and the Immune System

Vitamin C. You have to have vitamin C. Just hype from the citrus growers, right? Vitamin C can't possibly do everything it's supposed to do. Isn't zinc the superfood? It promotes the immune system, not to mention sexual health. Sorry to say, plain old reliable vitamin C is the ultimate immune system booster -- Dr. Linus Pauling brought vitamin C to the forefront and made Tropicana happy. But long before Dr. Pauling, British sailors ate limes (hence the word "Limey") and oranges to prevent all kinds of scurvy sea diseases in a hygiene-challenged dangerous job. So vitamin C inspires a whole generation of immune system vitamins, including echinacea, zinc, vitamin E, and cinnamon, as well as selenium, beta-carotene, lycopene and luo han kuo. C-C-Cheers for vitamin C!
