Yes, increased intake of the vitamin C is linked with reducing symptoms like sniffling, sneezing, headache and runny nose. While vitamin C's definitive benefits may be mixed, determining the proper dosage for you may help to reduce your cold.

Extra vitamin C will boost your immune system so you will get fewer colds and when you do they will be less severe. It won't prevent nose bleeding.
Nose bleeding can be caused by a deficiency of vitamin K. There is plenty of vitamin K in broccoli and spinach
