Vitamin C

Stupid question... Can you have too much vitamin C? I got some throat drops that have 100% as my throat is real sore and to be brutally honest, I'm to damn nasty feeling to go out and get more, but they help with the dry pain.

    can be pretty bad for you liver if its a long term thing.
    you should be taking an RDA of about 60mg/day of vitamin c. - unless you smoke.

    No, you are incorrect Otter. Excess Vitamin C is flushed by the body, so you can have as much as you like.

    actually i don't know why i typed liver. i meant kidneys. too much vitamin c can cause kidney stones if taken in excess over a long period. sorry about that.

    Well I don't plan on eating a bag a day for the rest of my life, so I guess I'm in the clear there ;)
