Vitamin C

For all those who have gone crazy over consuming vitamin C, please seek professional advice before consuming. Do not self-medicate as I personally before advising, I like to know what foods you are consuming plus the medication you are on as there will be a lot of chemical interactions going on, which could potentially end up causing long term health problems. I am putting this information out there to you and by all means it is up to you how you proceed. For me, my patients health and welfare is priority.
