VITAMIN C AND KIDNEY STONES

It’s that time of year when people fall under the weather and catch the flu.  To counter act the symptoms of the common cold or flu, many resort to vitamin C. It is under much debate that vitamin C helps with these problems, but is proven that excessive intake contributes to formation of kidney stones.
Definitely something to avoid if you have a history of kidney stones or kidney stones in your family.
