Re: Questions on vitamin C intake?????
Posted by Gordon on 3/01/99
From what I've heard it depends on how you take it. I know a lady who has been taking over 4000 a day for over 15 years for arthritus (a nurse)but she takes it slowly using the crystaline form disloved in glasses of water that she sips throughout the day. I've also heard that there may be side effects but I've never heard the details of what they were and how the Vit C was administered. I wouldn't try plain old C in 1000mg dosages. The ester type works for me.
So far most doctors I've talked to all claim that there is no proof of any benifit (even the one who took 2000 a day) so it is hard to know the truth.
