Is Vitamin C Deficiency A Sign Of Asthma?

Question:Is Vitamin C deficiency a sign of asthma?

Answer: So Vitamin C is an interesting question because Vitamin C is an antioxidant and there's certainly a lot of interest in antioxidants.

Vitamin C deficiency itself is not been associated with asthma. However, people have asked the question whether Vitamin C can be used to prevent asthma attacks. And people have actually studied this in a number of clinical trials so far, and thus far there's been no clear data to suggest that Vitamin C can help you prevent an asthma attack.
