Vitamins are important to the body. Vitamin C helps prevent colds Im sure that there are other reasons but that is the main reason that I hear.

It has long been accepted that a diet rich in vitamin C from fruits and vegetables provides protection against cancer and heart disease. While 200 mg/day of vitamin C may be sufficient to maintain a reasonable health status. Large doses (1-2 g/day) of vitamin C have been found to reduce asthma symptoms significantly. Recent studies have shown that vitamin C concentrations in the blood from rheumatoid arthritis patients are extremely low and that vitamin C may protect against further damage to inflamed joints.

Vitamin C helps your body fights off infections and stuff. It does not let you get sick oftenly if you have enough of it in your system.
