Are you getting enough vitamin C?

Acerola Vitamin C and the heart
Dr. Linus Pauling emphasizes the following in his book: “Fortunately, vitamin C isn't a drug – it's an orthomolecular vital substance, normally available in the human body and of minimal toxicity.
Those who want to take vitamin C to improve their health in the best way possible neither need a prescription nor the medical establishment's consent. The laymen’s knowledge and ability to judge can be superior to the physicians' in this regard.”
How much vitamin C is too much?
Two-time noble prize laureate Dr. Linus Pauling was the best-known vitamin C expert. Until his death at the age of 93 he took 18,000mg vitamin C daily.
As a scientist he dealt with this vital substance for years. He was convinced that it can increase quality of life significantly and prolong life for many years.
Vitamin C is safe even in extremely high dosages. Some may get loose stools or diarrhea at a dosage above 1,000mg/day. These symptoms, however, are absolutely harmless and disappear when the dose is lowered.
Vitamin C is continually associated with the formation of kidney stones. It's true that too much vitamin C is eliminated by the kidneys, but kidney stones certainly won't form. On the contrary: it protects them.
