  2. Increased susceptibility to infection
  3. Lack of energy
  4. Poor digestion
  5. Prolonged wound healing time
  6. A tendency to bruise easily
  7. Tooth loss

Toxicity of synthetic Vitamin C supplementation

  1. Some sensitive people may actually have an adverse reaction to the synthetic Vitamin C.
  2. Intakes of 2-3g/day of vitamin produce unpleasant diarrhea due to unabsorbed vitamin in the intestine in most people.
  3. Gastrointestinal disturbances can occur after ingestion of as little as 1 gm because approximately half of the amount would not be absorbed at this dose.
  4. Symptoms of overdose include:
    - Flushed face
    - Headache
    - Increase urination
    - Lower abdominal cramps
    - Diarrhea
    - Nausea
    - Vomiting
    - Kidney stone formation - Oxalate is an end product of ascorbate catabolism and may cause kidney stone.
    - Hyperoxaluria – caused excessive daily amounts of vitamin C
