The dose of Vit C for miscarriage is not scientifically validated
How much vitamin c can i take?
The usual dose that people take for this purpose
is up to 500 mg every hour
with maximum of 6000 mg / day for periods NOT exceeding 2-3 days
will it harm myself if i take more??
I have read on the internet that people have taken 5000mg vit c morning and night and it worked
In certain people high doses may predispose them for chances of nausea, abdominal cramps etc
Since ascorbic acid is a water-soluble vitamin, toxic levels are not built up or stored in the body, and any excess is lost mostly through urine. If extremely large amounts are taken gastrointestinal problems may appear, but will normalize when the intake is cut or reduced. To determine a level where a person might experience discomfort is difficult, since some people can easily stomach up to 25,000 mg per day, while others start having a problem at 600 or 1,000 mg.
thank you for your help
i have to go for now
