Vitamin C Overdosage

Can you take too much Vitamin C?Yes, in spite of frequent claims to the contrary. Although vitamin C is water-soluble – any excess is excreted rather than absorbed – too much of it is not a good thing for some people. This is also true of the B vitamins, which are also water-soluble.Excess comsumption of vitamin C may cause:

  • Intestinal irritation, intestinal gas, and painful urination.
  • Skin rashes.
  • Depletion of copper from your body.
  • Increased absorption of iron by your body.
  • Increased risk of formation of oxalate kidney stones.
  • Blood tests to produce inaccurate results (e.g., blood-sugar tests)
  • Symptons of scurvy, following a sudden drop in dosage after consuming excess amounts for a prolonged period (e.g., reduce consumption slowly).

Everything in moderation and in balance makes for a healthy lifestyle. This includes all water-soluble vitamins. All fat-soluble vitamins should be treated with due caution (A, D, E, and K).
