How To Take Vitamin C At Night
Having night sweats everyday since I began to take vitamin C supplements. Could taking vitamin C be the cause or should I check other factors?
Look elsewhere: Hi. Anything in high enough level can be toxic, but that's not likely for vitamin C. New onset night sweats is not normal and should be evaluated by a physician. It could be something as simple as the heater is on too high or you're using too many blankets, but also consider inflammatory, infectious, neoplastic, and metabolic causes. I don't think it's the vitamin C. ...Read more
Am taking. 75mg of levothyroxine in mrng hour b4 bfast. Doc told me to take vitamin c, d & multivitamins each day too can I take them in mrng or night?
Better at Night: Vitamin c ; d are probably ok to take in the morning with your levothyroxine, however multivitamins typically contain calcium and iron which both can bind to levothyroxine and decrease it's absorption. I would recommend to take your levothyroxine by itself in the morning. ...Read more
I take vitamin C 1000 at night because I tend to get sick easily. Can the effects of vitamin C wear off if you take it too often?
No, they donot: You can take it any time but once daily is enough. The body does get rid of it fast and it is not stored in the body...So it has to be taken daily. ...Read more

I started sneezing yesterday. Last night my nose was blocked and sometimes I sneezed out some dark yellow mucus. Is that a cold symptom? What should I take other than vitamin c?
Vitamin C supplement: Taking vitamin c supplementation is generally safe if taken within the recommended daily allowance. The daily recommended dietary allowances (rdas) in adults are 90 mg for men and 75 mg for women. Higher doses of vitamin c (more than 2000 mg/day for adults) could lead to adverse reactions (heartburn, nausea, diarrhea, or kidney stones). ...Read more
I think you may mean: Vitamin D. As our bodies are able to produce vitamin D through exposure to sun. So if you have limited sun exposure or utilize a significant amount of sunscreen (which may be necessary for a number of reasons), then it probably wouldn't hurt to supplement your diet with a vitamin D supplement. ...Read more
In some situations:
Research shows in most situations, taking vitamin c does not prevent colds, but in those who do extreme physical exertion or are exposed to cold temperatures it's a useful preventive- see http://www. Ncbi. Nlm. Nih. Gov/pubmed/15495002? Dopt=abstrct.

It is perfectly fine to take vitamin c with juice. There is a limit to how much vitamin c one can absorb at one time, so it is more effective to take small amounts frequently than large amounts less frequently. See http://ods. Od.Nih. Gov/factsheets/vitaminc-healthprofessional/

Most likely: Vitamin c is technically considered a category c drug/supplement, meaning that we don't know for sure whether it is absolutely safe in pregnancy. However, many resources state a daily dose of 120mg per day should be safe for pregnant and breast feeding women. Do not use if you are at risk for high blood pressure during your pregnancy. ...Read more
Any time is good: Our bodies need vitamin c 24 hours a day so it should not make a big difference when you take it. However, vitamin c does not stay in your body for very long so it is wise to take it at least twice a day. I take vitamin c in the morning and evening but it might be even better to take 3x/day. I advise 500mg-2000 mg per dose. See http://www. Vitamincfoundation. Org/faq. Shtml#q7. ...Read more
Yes: My question is "why"? You're going to get enough vitamin C if you eat an occasional orange or generally enough fruits. In the classic study, people supplementing with vitamin E had a higher mortality. If you're taking glutathione to lighten your skin, please don't. You'd do best to get with an evidence-based holistic-minded practitioner to help you select supplements. ...Read more

Buffered Vit C: Vitamin c is Ascorbic Acid and like any acid could irritate your GI tract. That is why I recommend buffered vitamin c such as calcium ascorbate or magnesium ascorbate tablets, capsules or powder. You might do even better taking something like buffered vitamin c powder from nutricology, which is buffered with calcium, magnesium and potassium & from cassava root- as much vit c comes from gmo corn! ...Read more
Yes: You can take vit c supplements while pregnant or breastfeeding but you should not exceed recommended dosing. You will get more with eating lots of fruits and vegetables high in vitamin c. Our bodies absorb vitamins much better when presented in unprocessed foods. Plus if you are taking a multivitamin everyday that will also have vitamin C in it. Too many vtiamin supplements are not good. ...Read more
