Can you get too much vitamin C?
I have been taking a lot of vitamin C to ward off colds. I was told that you can take too much vitamin C. Is this true and if it is what are the effects of it?

A toxic dose would be around 1lb of Vitamin C, so there is almost no chance of taking too much in that sense.
Now, not always will you be able to adsorb a megadose all at once, as other factors must be brought into play for your body to properly use the Vitamin C, but taking 1g or more per day has been shown to decrease cortisol in the body; thereby indirectly increasing your testosterone levels.
And, as you know, testosterone is the granddaddy of all that is awesome.
Form follows function.
