i don't know about that one, cyb.
once again, i'm skeptical.
you might look into getting a dietician. insurance covers mine. they're very helpful and knowledgable. i've had one since 2000, and my new one helped me gain 36 pounds.

Vitamin C is good for bruising and preventing vericose veins.
I take a product called Emergen-C its a powder that you mix with water it has a lot of B vitamins and the C is 1000 miligrams I take one every night before bed.Also if people are getting sick around me I will take it up to 3-4 times a day I dont get sick it is great to take on a plane as the the air is recirculated with all the germs people bring.My brother always gets sick from being on a plane but I never do.Go figure.
