    A 2007 study of 416 women with a total of 427 wrist fractures conducted at three hospitals in the Netherlands discovered that high doses of Vitamin C help prevent complex regional pain syndrome (CRPS) in broken wrists. Inflamation (and possibly immobility) of a broken wrist can lead to CRPS, an irreparable muscle damage. Women who took 500 mg of VitaminC or 1500 mg of Vitamin C per day had only a 2.4 percent occurence of CRPS, while women taking no Vitamin C or taking only 200 mg of Vitamin C per day, had a 10.1 percent occurence of CRPS. The study by PE. Zollinger, W.E. Tuinebreijer, R.W. Kreis, and R.S. Breederveld appeared in The Journal of Bone & Joint Surgery, July 2007, Vol. 89, N. 7, pages 1424-1431.

    Seniors should have at least 250 mg of Vitamin C a day for antioxidant protection, strong immune system, and healthy heart.
