    With breakfast this morning I had two of my vitamins, and those were approximately 850% of my daily value of vitamin C. Went to Wingstreet for lunch and got aSoBe LifeWater. That had 250% of my daily value of Vitamin C. So how much more can I have today, and what are the effects of consuming too much vitamin C?[​IMG]

    my friend,

    nothing bad can come from consuming too much vitamin C. Its water soluble, so your body doesn't retain it like fat soluble vitamins. you'll just pissout the excess intake...

    cheers

    You can never have too much Vitamin C. Actually, high doses of Vitamin C can help fight off LDL cholesterol (bad kind). It also boosts your immune system.....

    I have Vitamin C every night before bed. I don't think it's bad for you to intake too much.

    If it is...RIP to me.

    Speaking from experience, too much Vitamin C can give you stomach aches and indigestion. So if your stomach starts to heart stop taking so much.

    too much of anything can be bad, make sure on a daily/weekly basis you squeeze in some other vitamins

    Hmmm... Thanks for the tips. I drink plenty of water and mix it up as far as vitamins, so I should be straight.

    Extra Vitamin C you basically piss away thru your system.

    If you're worried, change up your multis with lower dosages.

    Remember, the "% Daily Value" for vitamins are basically the minimum for an average person. You can have more, often much more...especially if youare active.

    You can't have too much Vitamin C..like everyone said. It will just go through your system and you'll get rid of the excess intake

    proof? i don't think there is any evidence of this in any articles or journals. vitamin C "might" be able to help your immune system (likeairborne) but that might just be a mental thing as well. as far as ldl, the best agent to reduce it is statin drugs.
