Men with higher vitamin C intakes are less likely to develop gout, according to the results of a prospective study published in the Archives of Internal Medicine.1 The incidence of gout, a painful type of arthritis, decreased as total and supplemental vitamin C intake increased in this cohort of men aged 40-75 years. Specifically, for every 500mg increase in vitamin C intake, the risk for gout appeared to decrease by 17%.
