Re: more Vit C

Posted by Rosalind on 3/02/99 at 00:00 (005206)

I normally was taking 2000 mg Vit C a day (2 1000 mg caps) without any problems. More than that and I would have intestinal problems. I tried upping the dose to 3 to 4,000 mg as Gordon said worked for him on the plantar fascia beast. I got 250 mg chewable tabs, so I could space out the doses throughout the day (although they tasted so good, I'd often eat 2 or 3 at a time). Unfortunately, the chewable tabs have fructose in them, and more unfortunately they really did a # on my intestines. So, I just got some 500 mg time-release buffered C, to see if that is easier on my system. I also got some E-mergen-C 'fizz powder' and will try that too. I agree that Vit C can do amazing things, it's just a matter of getting it in.

Gorson, I feel fortunate to have come on line just about the time you did your last summary of what worked for you. Thanks to you, and all else who are sharing so much.

Rosalind,

Please be wary of chewable vitamin C, it's murder on your teeth. stick with plain or ester tablets or capsules.
