Consumer Voice - - Chyawanprash -

Vi­ta­min C, also known as ascor­bic acid, is widely con­sid­ered to be an ef­fec­tive cure for the com­mon cold. Other ben­e­fits of vi­ta­min C may in­clude pro­tec­tion against im­mune sys­tem de­fi­cien­cies, car­dio­vas­cu­lar dis­ease, pre­na­tal health prob­lems, eye dis­ease, and even skin wrin­kling.

As per Di­etary Guide­lines for In­di­ans, 2011, by Na­tional In­sti­tute of Nutri­tion, the daily re­quire­ment of vi­ta­min C for both man and woman is 40 mg. So, higher is bet­ter for con­sumers.
