Can any doc explain if vitamin C supplements make you more prone to illness once you stop taking them?

In brief: Vitamin C

helps boost immunity so we are a little less likely to catch a cold when taking it.
If we stop we loose that extra protection but it does not leave us weaker than before we started taking C. If you take C, be sure to take it in two doses rather than one since it only lasts about 12 hours in our body. Peace and good health.
