1 tablet of vitamin C has 500mg which is 556 %DV according to the label. I know that daily limit to feel healthy without symptoms is around 1000mg.

Label also says that serving size is 1 chewable tablet and to chew 1 tablet up to two times daily.

Question: Is there a point in taking 556 %DV of vitamin C per day as a chewable tablet?

Or should I just break the tablet into 2-4 pieces and take them on separate 2-4 days?

    Are you actually asking "what is the point of taking more vitamin C (or any vitamin) than the 'daily value'"? That is a fairly generic question, whereas the way you've worded it it looks like a request for medical advice.

    Could you clarify how your question is not answered by the Q&A you linked?

    This is both a medical advice question and a diet/nutrition question. I think it should be closed.

    @ChrisRogers Okay, I'll go with the third reason of being a duplicate.
