Current Supplemental Vitamin C Recommendation?

Current Supplemental Vitamin C Recommendation? Empty Current Supplemental Vitamin C Recommendation?

Post  RPM on Sun Apr 21, 2019 1:45 am

CS-In another thread you mentioned Vitamin C being a pro-oxidant @ & above 500 mg. What's your current recommendation for Vitamin C supplementation in a day? I have vague memories of the IH regimen featuring much higher doses back in the day.

Although I take relatively high doses of many supplements, I've always had a concern in the back of my mind that "super-normal" doses might be having the opposite of the desired effect.
I've met a lot of supplement junkies that look much older than their less health conscious peers, myself included. I know this could be because less healthy people to begin with might be seeking out supps to address their issues, so it may not be causation, but curious on your view. More & more of the holistic doctors I follow online like Dr. Greger, Fuhrman, Popper, etc. seem to be anti-supplement based on the most recent research.

Are there any common supplements that we should be wary of in large doses for this reason? Have your views changed over the years in light of newer research re. dosages?

As always, Thanks for this forum & all the info over the years.

Vitamin C is very useful at doses exceeding 2 grams (2,000 mg) and frequently, when I do take it, it's around 2 to 10 grams in a single shot. Also, one of the best ways to overcome illness is to dose at 2 grams every 6 minutes until symptoms disappear.

So what about the downsides of vitamin C? Yes there are a few if precautions are not taken. I'm sure I'll leave some out but to keep this short, high doses will deplete copper and zinc (so be sure to supplement with that if you take it on the regular). I do, because if I don't I'll get gray hair. It will deplete some manganese too.

I'm now 50 and I've been taking a lot of supplements now for 20 years plus and no, I do not look older (if anything "erasing" a lot of years/decades depending on perceptions).

As far as supplements go, I believe the question is which ones and for what reason. The details are everything and any "experts" who make blanket statements that supplements are *all" good or *all* bad is just conjecture.

Throughout a typical week how often are you dosing vitamin C, CS?

here is the must read link on on the claimed side effects and use

For over 3 years ascorbic acid has reversed any flu or cold within hours. Megadose is one of the very best things I have ever used.
