    Don't you hate when your looking forward to a hunting trip in the near future & out of no where a sickness creeps in and ends the hunt or makes the hunt that much harder. We all know that vitamin C reduces the chances of getting sick. Pine needles contain more vitamin C then any pill you can find. Some make a tea out of them. You don't have to eat them, just suck on them and you will get enough vitamin C to get your daily dose. I wouldn't let any woman chew ponderosa pine needles expecting a baby soon, they found it cause's abortions in some. I'm not in any medical field so try at your own risk, this is just knowledge passed down & it seems to keep me in good heath. Happy hunting DJH

    Fortunately I am one of those people that hardly ever get sick. I've never had a sickness that I can think of besides a runny nose while hunting(knock on wood).

      That's interesting DJH, I didn't know pine needles were that high in Vitamin C. How do they taste though? Because I know of people who've tried making tea out of pine needles, and they said it tasted downright horrible.

        yeah it takes some getting used to but after a few times it starts tasting ok. There is Vitamin C in some other natural plants that surround you, like parts of a cattails in a swampy areas also have some Vitamin C value.

              Dang I wish I had been munching on some pine needles 2 weeks ago. I just came down with a bad cold. Vitamin c helps prevent sicknesses but does it speed up the recovery time when you are sick? Should I be eating them right now?
