    I am seriously considering quitting the vitamin C after reading this. I’m at least going to be doing extensive research on google scholar.

    A very brief google scholar search brings up plenty of evidence that is contradictory to that article.

    Gonna go sob softly into my vitamin bottles.

    One of the things that the health companies don’t want is for people to not take vitamins but instead take drugs to treat their problems. I think this may be apart of the reason they wrote up this article.

    However, I also feel that you should only take vitamins if you are dead certain you are deficient in certain ones. For instance, we have little vitamin C on the diet so its a good one to have. We also might not get enough essential fatty acids as well.

    I had a post last week where I talked about how I supplemented myself with calcium, magnesium, and zinc for the last 2 years or so daily. I was taking 100% DV. Anyways, I developed some heart problems a few weeks ago and its because my calcium levels were too high.

    Certain vitamins like calcium have drawbacks, especially for men. I would only stick with ones that are safe. Biotin, vitamin C, and vitamin K have no drawbacks if you supplement with them.

    Vitamin C also could be made from GMO corn so be sure to research your vitamin C supplement because it could pose problems.

    Calcium seemed to cause problems for me as well, but I still take Zinc and magnesium. I think I get plenty of calcium from yoghurt and kefir.

    As I get better, I am trying to supplement less and less.
