IN THE BODY
You must take Vitamin C on a daily basis to maintain a healthy system.
Lack of vitamin C can lead to a variety of health problems,
including dryness of skin, fluid retention, pain
in the bones and joints and in some cases, scurvy. Without
proper amounts of Vitamin C, the risk for
cancer is much greater and the chances of developing a serious
cardiovascular disorder are high.
Natural forms of Vitamin C can be found in most fruits and vegetables.
- Men 60 mg
- Women 60 mg
- During pregnancy 70 mg
- During breast feeding 95 mg
Taking too much Vitamin C can cause vomiting, loss of balance,
cramps and rashes.
If you are a heavy smoker, taking steroids, drinking heavily,
taking antibiotics or taking increased amounts
of estrogen, your body may not be receiving the amount of
Vitamin C you think you're taking.
Vitamin C Supplements can stop a wide variety of infections
including high blood pressure, cancer, cataracts, diabetes and asthma.
If taken too much, Vitamin C can create Kidney Stones and may
disturb the results of urine and blood tests.
