In brief: Totally safe!

The Vitamin C Foundation recommends adults take 1000 mg of Vit C 3x/day.
Nobel prize winner Linus Pauling advised 6-18, 000 mg/day. Noted expert Thomas Levy MD advises 6-12, 000 mg/day. I take 1-2,000 mg 2x/day. The only side effect is more than 3000 mg at a time may cause loose stools.I believe such doses protect against heart disease, cancer and other chronic diseases: http://tinyurl.com/z76my3a
