I have had a question about vitamin c and I have been searching many places but haven't got a good answer.i thought the best answer might come from your guys. i was wondering is it safe taking 1000mg of vitamin c everyday? Is there any long term side effects? Can anything bad happen to me or my health? Can you answer those questions for me please I will be very thankful
I suppose you are asking because you think that 1 gram is a lot of vitamin C.
For many people, 1000 mg would be too little, but this amount is usually free from side-effects. There is no known toxic lethal oral dosage of vitamin C.
Our Foundation recommends 3000 mg daily, so 1000 is 1/3 of the amount we recommend for maintaining good health.
