Hello, How can I benefit from panax genseng and complex B with vitamin C, if I am 25 years old and 52 kg, Can I gain weight if I took them?

No: You will not gain weight with these, but your wallet may become thinner. With a normal diet there is seldom a need for supplementary vitamins, and certainly not ginseng. If you want to gain weight (which may or may not be appropriate) you need to consume more calories than you are using. Simple math. Good luck.

Vit C: Vit C is water soluble, which means the body will use only what it needs. The amount recommended, RDA, varies depending upon patient age as well as the purpose for taking the vitamin. So for a 7/8 year old the RDA is 25 mg and the UL (upper limit) safe to give is 650 mg daily. For anti cancer, cold, & antioxidant benefits the recommendations start at 200 mg daily, See PMD.

DailyRequirement60mg: 1000 mgm is a lot. Daily requirement of Vitamin C is 60mgm. You can get enough from your diet if you have citrus fruits/juices, tomato, papaya, green leafy vegetables like kale, kivi fruit, bell peppers, guava, brocolli, strawberriespeas. Some recommend supplement up to 1000 mgm but I don't exceed more than 500 mgm as large doses can cause diarrhea, nausea, abdominal pain, Calcium oxalate kidney stones etc.

Is lots of vitamin C good or bad?

Vitamin C is: Generally good for you. If you take too much you may get the runs. Daily maintenance dose would be one 1K tab in the a.m. and one 1K tab in the p.m. It only lasts in your body for about 12 hours so whatever you take needs to be in divided doses. If you have a cold or it's cold season it can be doubled. Beyond that, please see a nutritionist or integrative doc. Peace and good health.

Does vitamin C help fight a cold?

Does vitamin C help fight a cold?

Vitamin C & colds: This topic has been debated. The data suggest that it can reduce duration of colds slightly but it does not prevent or reduce the severity of colds for most people. Some studies of people living in extreme circumstances, including soldiers in subarctic exercises, skiers, and marathon runners, have found a significant reduction in the risk of developing a cold with vitamin c by nearly 50%.

Should vitamin C be taken at night?

Should vitamin C be taken at night?

Day and night: I recommend everyone take 1000-2000 mg of vitamin c twice a day for general preventive purposes. Vitamin c does not stay in our bodies very long, so whatever you take in the morning won't be there at nite, so I advise taking vitamin c both morning and evening.

How will my body utilize vitamin c?

How will my body utilize vitamin c?

Vit c: Vit c is a water soluble vitamin and our body does not manufacture it so the supply we get is via food resources and the level can fluctuate a lot and is labile. Some patients who have malabsorption syndromes or gastric bypass or who travel a lot (like pirates) can develop a deficiency as well. It can lead to anemia and bruising/bleeding problems and affect wound healing and lead to psychosis etc.
