    Default Vitamine C - Know when to take it.

    Vitamin C is a popular antioxidant and immune system booster. Its antioxidant properties, however, make it unsuitable for ingestion around a workout. Antioxidants can reduce oxidative stress that accumulates during exercise. Oxidative stress may act as a growth signal, so reducing the amount can impair gains. Take your Vitamin C dosage at least 4-hours away from your workout and avoid dosages higher than 500mg/day if your goal is to maximize gains.

    i'm not sure that reads right about oxidative stress. seems like it should read 'reducing the amount can improve gains.' considering we're talking about not taking vit c around workout time.
    all that you read here is only for entertainment purposes.

    I would agree, just need to stay away from taking it before training.
