Good Vitamin C
since Covid-19 I consume 500mg of vitamin C every day, can I use it every day or what? because I saw a doctor who said it’s better not more than 200mg and he said 500mg vit c was used when he was sick, is that true?
Vitamin C is a water soluble vitamin that plays a role in the body's metabolism and immune processes. This vitamin is classified as an essential vitamin, meaning that the body cannot produce vitamin C itself and requires outside intake that comes from food or supplements.
Although beneficial, the use of vitamin C must be adjusted to daily needs because excessive consumption of vitamin C can cause hypervitaminosis which can actually cause health problems. The recommended use of vitamin C is 15-75 mg per day for children, 75 mg for adult women, 90 mg for adult men and 85-120 mg per day for pregnant and nursing women.
Research shows that consumption of 1-2 grams of vitamin C per day (1,000 - 2,000 mg) can help speed the healing of colds (common cold) and boost immunity. However, consumption of vitamin C with high doses is not recommended for everyone and needs to be adjusted to one's body condition. Related to this you should discuss the use of vitamin C that suits your condition with your doctor directly in order to get advice that suits your condition.
