A new study, VitaC4Care, will test how much vitamin C is needed to achieve normal levels in care home residents.

I am a chef in a care home, and although we offer a very good menu to our residents they eat only small amounts of food, which needs to be more nutrient dense. Some of them have quite a sweet tooth, which will drive brain problems too. I have tried to make suggestions about more fruit and less sugar, but unable to make a real difference with this. I have created recipes to ensure vitamin and minerals RVs are met, but nobody listening. Good luck with this study, I hope you can make a difference to all those malnourished residents that I see
Wonderful to see research like this being undertaken, with a potential for improving vulnerable people's health with something as simple as Vitamin C. It's a shame that government and public health bodies do not appear to be contributing to such a potentially important and significant study.
