bodies cannot make Vitamin C and our capacity to store Vitamin C is
limited. We must, therefore, take in some Vitamin C each day. Vitamin
C is a water-soluble vitamin and as such is not stored in the body and
must be replaced each day. Vitamin C is absorbed in our intestine,
passes directly into the blood, and is carried to the tissues where it
will be utilized. Water-soluble vitamins are usually excreted in the
urine on a daily basis. Tissue storage capacity of water soluble
vitamins is limited and, as the tissues become saturated, the rate of
excretion increases sharply. This keeps us from overdosing but this is
also why we need to take these vitamins daily.

Vitamin C in doses of 500 mg twice per day. For intense training or
high levels of stress, some experts recommend all athletes training
