Vitamin C is perhaps the most famous and most controversial vitamin. Its proponents say it can "cure" cancer and the common cold. Its detractors say it will shorten life-span if taken in large doses.
As controversial as Vitamin C is by itself, the ester version (Vitamin C's linked together in a chain) adds to the controversy. Its proponents say it is a better absorbed and non-acidic form of the vitamin. Critics say that there is no benefit from taking this more expensive version.
