Vitamin C recommended dose for adults over 18 years is 90 mg per day.

For Children between the age of 4-8 years, recommended daily dose is 25 mg per day.

It is abundantly found in fruits and vegetables specially citrus fruits.

If taken within recommended doses, it is safe for the body with beneficial effects.

Chronically chewing Vit C tablets can cause teeth erosions in kids.
