Many foods can be healthy, but sometimes you have to watch just how much you are putting into your mouth. Here are 5 foods that will leave you flushed out if you don't watch out.
1. Vitamin C. Due to its antioxidant property, Vitamin C in high doses is helpful when you have a cold or the flu. It's also recommended for those with chronic diseases, such as those with cancer. In high doses, however, Vitamin C will flush you out. Sometimes called the Tolerance Test or Titrating to Bowel Tolerance, take 1/2 tsp of ascorbic acid powder in a glass of water every 15 minutes. When you get the runs, you know you've gone too far. Lessen the dosage by 25%. This is your ideal dosage to take. Understand that the healthier you are, the less Vitamin C you need. If you get the runs within 24 hours of ingesting 10-15 grams of Vitamin C or less (that's 2-3 tsp of ascorbic acid powder) you are healthy and in great shape!
