Vitamin C? But It’s Just a Vitamin…

Vitamin C is probably the most discussed and most controversial of all vitamins. According to some authorities we need only 70-90 mgs/day (that’s the RDA) and that the upper safe limit is 500, and some say 2,000 mgs is maximum. On the other hand, some independent nutritionists say that most people should get AT LEAST 3,000 mgs/day of vitamin C, and for optimal health often 10,000 mgs/day is recommended, or more (i.e.: take to “bowel tolerance”).
