I just want to mention that if you research vitamin C long enough, it both causes and cures cancer, just like every other unnatural supplement….in other words, nothing is completely “safe”.
I didnt find that vitamin C helped even a little bit with die off. Nothing.
I take vitamin C for other reasons, however, and its been said many times that you use what your body needs…and sometimes your body can tolerate incredible levels just because it needs it.
I think many problems arise out of giving the body unnatural things that it cannot use.
High doses of vit C can cause kidney stones in prone people, and high doses of any vitamin can cause a deficiency in another vitamin, the same way taking herbs that act as diuretics can affect vitamin/mineral loss, or eating high protein diets that also act as a diuretic.
High amounts of vitamin C have to be eventually lowered, and not just stopped, due to an affect on the immune system when it is just “cut-off”.
I dont mention any of this to worry you, I mention it so that you note that vitamins in pill form are not natural, and therefore will force responsibility on behalf of the user.
I wouldnt be too concerned unless you are taking a super high amount for a very long time.
I take Emergen C (1000mg vit C and B complex) once a day when I feel vulnerable to the sickness that the kids bring home from school, and if im not taking that, I take a 500mg vit C daily because this stupid candida doesnt allow me the amount of fruits a day I am accustomed to.
Its water soluble, but I still be careful. http://www.webmd.com/vitamins-and-supplements/nutrition-vitamins-11/fat-water-nutrient
