Question: Vitamin C & Miscarrying?
|SallyJ - Sun Aug 08, 2004 8:45 am||
I read that too much vitamin C can cause a miscarriage, but it's also very unhealthy to have that much vitamin C in your body... Is this true?

Vitamin c is a water soluble vitamin and is easily excreted in the urine. To have vitamin c toxicity, one has to take very large amounts of the vitamin.
Anything should be taken in moderation, if anything is taken in large amounts, it has the potential of being harmful. The reported toxicities do not include miscarriage. The most common vitamin c side effect reported is kidney stones.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
