Guest fatallyours
It increases your chances of getting cancer or so i hear. Just stick to 500mg to 1000mg a day.

Are we talking about the supplement vitamin C? or is it something that you apply to your skin?

Because if it's the former.. wouldnt it be poisnous? The label clearly says 1000g-1500g a day.

It is a waste to take that much Vitamin C. It is just being wasted. You just end up peeing it out. Your body can only use so much of it. I take 2-3 1,000mg pills daily.

Well it doesn't help really with existing scars but I do notice that new scars I get from new pimples tend to heal quickly & doesn't leave as bad as a scar. The resh scars fades rather quickly too!

Well they definitely are not killing me (duuh since I'm typing), but it's been giving me stomach problems doubt.gif I gotta go to the toilet offer lol...

But I dunno if it's the vitamin, or I'm just outgrowing it.. but my skin DEFINITELY looks so much better. The red marks are not so visible now and all I did is wash my face twice daily.

I don't think Vitamin C increases your chances of cancer - at least not something I've ever heard of before.

And also, yes, it is true that it looses its effect after a certain dose.

Vitamin C is relatively safe though, since it is water soluble as mentioned by artlez, which means that any excess would be removed from your body system via water loss. (As an aside, the fact that Vitamin A - or derivatives such as Accutane - is fat-soluble and not water is what makes it dangerous and toxic in high dosages - Vitamin A poisoning, etc. as it is much more difficult to remove.)

But of course, moderation is the key, to not just Vitamin C, but everything else in nutrition. I for one have heard people say 'a balanced diet/lifestyle' many times already!

and remember, supplements should only be just that - supplements. They shouldn't be your only source of Vitamin C.

I am guilty as charged too.

But I guess it is difficult sometimes as a student living away from home. I bet there are students out there with diets worse than mine - at least I don't live off Kraft dinners (macaroni cheese, etc.) alone ...
