Unless you understand how big pharma works and open your mind to other things that are actually beneficial to your health, then you are going to be ignorant to other people's views and follow the sheep. Look around you how many people struggle with their health, I see enough with the greatest advise from their doctors - paracetamol.
No, you won't find it in baking isles and it's only added to a food as a preservative.
I love my ascorbic acid, and that's a pure vit c without anything else added. You are absolutely safe to take it whilst breastfeeding, in fact it's very beneficial to you and your baby and don't listen to anyone who tells you otherwise. Just a bit of advise ,try to take it with something that's already contains natural vit c like an orange juice, this is to add bioflavonoids to ascorbic acid and makes absorption a lot higher. Good luck x
As a Holland and Barrett qualified associate (passed all the necessary training), and as a mother who’s breastfed and currently breastfeeding, I’ve never heard that you CANT have vitamin C whilst pregnant. I have heard that you can have up to 120mg of it. However your body regulates the amounts it needs itself. At Holland and Barrett we don’t get trained in afew areas, such as pregnancy, breastfeeding, diabetes, sexually transmitted diseases, cancer and many many more. Simply because we aren’t pharmacists, we aren’t doctors, we aren’t midwives, we’re just ordinary people learning about the functions of multivitamins, minerals and herbal remedies on the body. If your midwife or gp has suggested taking extra vitamin C, then go for it, no need to ask associates who don’t get trained in the area and are probably advising you on what they’ve heard or read elsewhere. Just double check with a midwife or gp how much would be suitable for you, as vitamin toxicity is very real
Calling someone rude, and then telling them to just keep on being a 'sheep' for believing in actual science and medical research-based medicine?
