Supplement gummies are not only delicious they provide a much-needed boost to our immune system. But can you have too much of a good thing?

It seems you indeed can as illustrated by the story in this video. The tale follows a man called GC that had health issues from childhood.

He was much larger than the other kids and he sought comfort in food. By adulthood, he had developed into an overweight man and suffered several health conditions including diabetes.

One day, he decided to take his health into his own hands and heal himself. He found a doctor that was willing to do a gastric bypass surgery that would result in him filling full with a lot less food.

He did the surgery and it proved a success as GC lost weight and even cured his diabetes. But GC was not satisfied with that. He wanted optimum health which he learned online could be achieved by taking zinc and vitamin C supplements.

These supplements were perfectly safe to take, reported the online forums, as they were water-soluble meaning any excess would be released in his urine. GC started taking up to 100 of these supplement gummies a day. What happened next? Watch the video above to find out.
