Currently, there are many skincare products containing vitamin C that help reduce wrinkles and brighten the skin effectively. In addition, vitamin C can also be supplemented through oral intake, but caution is needed to avoid health risks. Let’s explore 4 things to keep in mind when taking vitamin C for your health!
1Don’t take vitamin C after 4 pm
According to information from Dr. Khue Vu (working in Hanoi), excess vitamin C can combine with calcium ions in the blood to form kidney stones. Therefore, you should not take vitamin C after 4 pm because at this time you usually drink less water, so the elimination of oxalate stones from the body is less effective.
