While we are quarantined to our homes it is likely we are consuming more canned or processed meals than usual. It is important to supplement with vitamins to get nutrients that we aren’t getting from our food. Vitamin C 1000mg daily has shown in some studies to help decrease rate and duration of viral colds. It is always important to hydrate along with Vitamin C intake. Side effects from too much vitamin C are rare but some studies have shown nausea and vomiting from taking vitamin C at 2000mg daily on a continuous basis and possibly produce calcium oxalate renal stones in susceptible individuals.
The vitamin industry is booming, and there are hundreds of vitamins on the shelves for you. As they fight for your attention, vitamin companies will say anything to catch your eye. Since most of us are trained to look for the “organic” label on foods we eat, we tend to pay special attention to the “organic” vitamins as well. But is that the right way to judge your vitamin? Not all vitamins are created equal!
