    Vitamin C


    Is it safe to consume 1000-2000mg/day for a normal healthy person.

    vit c is water soluble, which makes it nearly impossible to take a dose that could poison you.

    If i feel like i am getting sick or have a cold, I take 1k-3k mg per hour! viruses can't do what they do very well in a highly acidic environment.

    the worst thing that can happen from megadosing vit c is you mess your pants.

    good luck.
