There’s been a lot of talk about vitamin C-enriched showers, many touting them as being beneficial in the arenas of both beauty and health as they neutralize the chlorine in water.
Leonardo DiCaprio reportedly had them installed in his new Greenwich Village home and the MGM Grand in Las Vegas features them in what they call their Stay Well rooms.
They’re actually not as expensive as their clientele would imply, with filters and showerheads available for around 40 to 100 dollars.
The jury is still out, however, on if they’re even worth that much.
Experts have advised that the showers don’t really work as well as people think they do.
Yes, from a strictly scientific standpoint, vitamin C does in fact nullify chlorine.
The thing with the shower system is that the amount of time the vitamin is in contact with the water isn’t likely enough to make that happen.

Business Week: Do Vitamin C-Infused Showers Work?
“Man’s body was designed to function best with high blood and cellular levels of vitamin C – synthesised as needed by the liver. Due to an inborn error of metabolism, the vast majority of us no longer have the ability to make it, but that does not lessen our need for vitamin C or the benefits derived form it.”

“There are more politics in modern medicine than in modern politics itself. Today’s average physician deserves even less trust than today’s average politician, as doctors continue their refusal to allow the scientific data on the profound benefits of vitamins and other antioxidant supplements to reach their eyes and brains. And the staunch support of a press, which collectively no longer has a shred of journalistic or scientific integrity, completes the framing of today’s colossal medical fraud. Money always rules the day: properly-dosed vitamins would eliminate far too much of the profit of prescription-based medicine.”
