    Default Super Dosing (High Dose Vitamin C)

    I've been reading up on super dosing Vitamin C lately ... specially after hearing about that guy that almost died of swine flu then IV Vit C saved his life.

    My GF has a viral chest infection which started life as a viral throat infection and I'm desperately trying to beat it without anti biotics. I've been gargling some anti viral thing from the pharmacy, but I have heard Vitamin C in large doses can be very effective.

    Has anyone else had any experience with high doses of vitamin C?

    How much did / do you take and how did it work out for you?

    I was taking around 1000mg Vit C per day, now I'm currently I'm taking 500mg per hour of 'Ester-C' (brand name, with Echinacea) and it seems to be keeping this thing at bay, I want to try and beat it.

    I dose up on vit C all the time,2g's a day if i feel a cold coming on for the first 3 days then just jam a 1g daily until its gone. Find it helps if you have it before you go to bed aswell for rest and repair

    Prity much gone the whole winter without any hick ups.
    The worst thing that can happen is you piss it out.


    That guy was on 25g twice daily. cleared him up prity damn quick though

    Yea Vit C is the age old cure for a lot of things in huge doses. Pretty effective at curing even Polio in 50g+ doses i think.
    Im pretty sure normal Vit C is ascorbic acid while "Ester C" is calcium ascorbate, the primary difference being far better absorption with Ester C, and its less acidic.

    You can get it cheap as shit if you buy it in powder form. I think i got it at one stage for about $10 for 100g or something rediculous.

    Yea no harm in taking very large amounts either cos the worse that will happen is that it goes striaght through you cos the body cant store it

    I'm definitely a regular user. tried and true

    I had a horrible sore throat last night, coughing, chills, fever and got very very little sleep. felt like i was gonna be sick for weeks. Remembered how well vit C helped that dude off 60min, I figured i may as well try it. so this morning i went out and got some healtheries vit C. munched down on about 5grams and within the hour my sore throat was gone.

    Im not 100% better because i still have a temperature and a headache but its defiantly significantly minimised. ill be taking another 5 grams and hope it'll cure it!

    just my 20 cents. i wonder if it can help cure my gastritis i am seriously suffering from?

    Do it. Better safe than sorry. I hate deciding against taking more Vit C more often when i feel something coming on, and then fucking regret it once whatever the bug is settles in
