RE: Health remedies and prevention for Coronavirus / flu
^^ Cuchulainn2016, we were discussing the use of vitamin C powder which you mix with water as per the instructions.

TailGunner, sorry you are not understanding the point. Sure you can do whatever you like but swallowing powdered or crystallized ascorbic acid mixed with water will erode the enamel of your teeth.

You mention caplets. Out of all the methods you mentioned, caplets are probably the safest as the vitamin c is not released until its in the stomach (with the shell being digested by stomach acid).

How are you getting it on your teeth? Place a teaspoon of C-crystals in an ounce of water, mix a bit, pour it into the back of your throat, and swallow. About 95% goes down. Immediately follow up with a few swigs of water to get the rest down. I use NOW brand Vitamin C crystals (not powder).

Maybe the powder acts differently?

Again, as I said it will get on your teeth if you take it according to the manufacturers instructions. If you are frequently megadosing it can damage your enamel. Buffered method is a good solution.

Be my guest to brush and bathe your teeth in ascorbic acid if it pleases you - but don't complain when it wrecks your teeth. For everyone else, they can use the knowledge to adjust their consumption method and thus protect their dental health.

Would that not bypass your teeth, meaning there was no worries about decay caused by the acidity?

Yes, I do not see the point of this debate. You can take tablets, caplets, powder, crystals, etc. -- and simply swallow them.

Good, cause my vitamin powder arrives tomorrow!

^ Yes, if you care about your enamel then anything that reduces exposure helps - use a straw, take in encapsulated form, or use a buffered solution (best imo).

I'm going to make some higher concentration liposomal C - vitamin C solubility is 330 g/L so you can achieve WAY higher concentrations than the commercial versions provide.

Yes, I've seen that too. You need chloroquine for the zinc to work inside the cells though. I think it's worth trying to convince your doctor to give you prescription for it as a last resort in a deteriorating case especially when the hospitals get overloaded.

You might want to examine the side effects of chloroquine before doing so:

Quote:Shanghai Government Officially Recommends Vitamin C for COVID-19
by Andrew W. Saul
(OMNS Mar 3, 2020) The government of Shanghai, China has announced its official recommendation that COVID-19 should be treated with high amounts of intravenous vitamin C. (1) Dosage recommendations vary with severity of illness, from 50 to 200 milligrams per kilogram body weight per day to as much as 200 mg/kg/day.

These dosages are approximately 4,000 to 16,000 mg for an adult, administered by IV. This specific method of administration is important, says intravenous therapy expert Atsuo Yanagisawa, MD, PhD, because vitamin C's effect is at least ten times more powerful by IV than if taken orally. Dr. Yanagisawa is president of the Tokyo-based Japanese College of Intravenous Therapy. He says, "Intravenous vitamin C is a safe, effective, and broad-spectrum antiviral."

Richard Z. Cheng, MD, PhD, a Chinese-American specialist physician, has been working closely with medical and governmental authorities throughout China. He has been instrumental in facilitating at least three Chinese clinical IV vitamin C studies now underway. Dr. Cheng is presently in Shanghai continuing his efforts to encourage still more Chinese hospitals to implement vitamin C therapy incorporating high oral doses as well as C by IV.

Dr. Cheng and Dr. Yanagisawa both recommend oral vitamin C for prevention of COVID-19 infection.

An official statement from Xi'an Jiaotong University Second Hospital (2) reads:

"On the afternoon of February 20, 2020, another 4 patients with severe new coronaviral pneumonia recovered from the C10 West Ward of Tongji Hospital. In the past 8 patients have been discharged from hospital. . . [H]igh-dose vitamin C achieved good results in clinical applications. We believe that for patients with severe neonatal pneumonia and critically ill patients, vitamin C treatment should be initiated as soon as possible after admission. . .[E]arly application of large doses of vitamin C can have a strong antioxidant effect, reduce inflammatory responses, and improve endothelial function. . . Numerous studies have shown that the dose of vitamin C has a lot to do with the effect of treatment. . . [H]gh-dose vitamin C can not only improve antiviral levels, but more importantly, can prevent and treat acute lung injury (ALI) and acute respiratory distress (ARDS)."

It's one university hospital.

The funny thing is that I talked with my mother today and she mentioned something I did not know about. When she gave birth it was common back then FOR MOST WOMEN TO RECEIVE VITAMIN C INFUSIONS. Most women were weak after giving birth and back then in that hospital they gave vitamin C infusions on the order of the head nurse! She did not even have to ask a doctor. Supposedly this treatment spread all throughout the 60s and 70s quickly, before it got stamped out by the establishment in the 80s and 90s. Only a few hospitals kept doing it and even less doctors and nurses remembered.

Unfortunately medicine is under full control of the for profit and for depopulation corporations. Even back in the 1970s leading MD scientists said that the science of medicine has to detach itself from the pharma and medical industry or no real progress will be achieved.

And Vit C is even what I would call a good low-tech method. It's essentially on the stage of the 1940s when humanity began to be able to create that vitamin and could have quickly found about certain applications. Never mind about possibly even better high-tech methods that cannot be patented either - healing via frequences, nuking of pathogens with specified frequences that impact only that pathogen etc. All of that won't be progressed because you cannot patent frequencies.

Ah well - at least we have the low tech vit c.

Back in the 1930's through the 1950's they also gave you an anti-fungal whenever you took antibiotics. It was simply common sense that if you killed all bacteria in the gut, both good and bad, then opportunistic fungi would take over. Now, so-called modern medicine never provides anti-fungals with antibiotics, which explains the explosion of candida overgrowth in the country. It is absolutely insane.

I will never again take an antibiotic, except under life-threatening conditions. I expressly tell doctors this fact before any invasive technique: "You need to be extra careful here, because I am not taking an antibiotic."

There is no damage to be feared. 12000mg while healthy is already a lot.

I took over 100.000mg while on a cold - felt good, had watery diarrhea - non-painful. It wasn't even dehydrating. It was more important to me that I didn't feel very sick.

Calibrating that while travelling once was more tricky. I got sick once and there was a scene in a restaurant bathroom - I am not proud of it, but it happens. Best is to stay at home while you take it, because the exact necessary dose is hard to put down to the exact gram.

In the past there was - currently they are not even producing any other forms unless it's the pure l-ascorbic acid. From what I understand is how the molecule rotates to the left vs right. Though looking back - even the ascorbic acid used by Dr. Klenner and others in the 1950s to 70s without that distinguishment worked. Producers sometimes forget the l- or they call it also l-ascorbate. I haven't seen any pure form today that does not use the l-ascorbic acid form - even the ones you buy for animal feed lots that are sold in gallon-sized buckets. (I bought once one such smaller bucket to find out whether they use something different - turns out they don't. Chicken and cows have to survive to turn a profit - contrary to humans who are given some useless and toxic tablets.)

I am looking at a product on Amazon. It is a gallon bucket of Vitamin C powder. My concern is that it is made in China and packaged in the United States. The company is Earthborn Elements. Any thoughts positive or negative towards them?

RE: Health remedies and prevention for Coronavirus / flu
Is there any concrete data on the pros/cons of pure vitamin c powder vs sodium ascorbate (buffered vitamin c) vs liposomal vitamin C?

I think the PH (2.1 - very acidic) of pure vitamin c is a valid concern for people sensitive to very acidic products. Although, I'm worried that a buffered version of vitamin c has reduce effectiveness or other side effects due to the additional ingredients; especially when consumed in megadoses.

My initial conclusion is that sodium ascorbate is best for maintenance and the pure stuff (or maybe even liposomal versions) is optimal when megadoseing and treating an illness. The aforementioned article also comes to the same conclusion.

Relevant article:

Quote:What Type Of Vitamin C Supplement Is Best?

A question that has been presented to me numerous times is "What kind of vitamin C should I take, and why?" It is a very good question, indeed. Let’s look at the different types of vitamin C that can be found in many of the capsules, powders and liquid vitamin C supplements available today…

It should first be emphasized that all of the forms of vitamin C share the characteristic of having a positively-charged cation and a negatively-charged anion, in the dissolved form. What all forms of vitamin C have in common is that they are all composed of an ascorbate anion. In fact, it is the ascorbate anion that is the electron-donating, active portion. It’s the ability of the ascorbate anion to bond with different types of cations that enables many different forms of vitamin C supplements to be produced. The most popular cations include various minerals and a fatty acid called palmitate. These companion cations also have significant biological impacts, and this needs to be considered when choosing the best form of vitamin C supplementation for both short-term and long-term needs.

Bowel Tolerance Factor
Vitamin C has pro’s and con’s when it comes to gut health. Each individual has their own ‘bowel tolerance’ level for vitamin C. This is the dose at which a vitamin C induced intestinal flush (diarrhoea) occurs. Individuals with a tendency towards gut issues are likely to have a lower bowel tolerance than those without a history of tummy troubles. If exceeding the bowel tolerance level is well-tolerated, then the remainder (un-absorbed) vitamin C passes into the colon before they get absorbed. Some forms of vitamin C supplements are more likely to trigger a lower bowel tolerance factor (ascorbic acid) whereas one of the benefits of liposomal vitamin C is that even at high doses digestive upset, diarrhoea or intestinal flushing is not a factor.

Ascorbic Acid
This is the cheapest, most regular form of vitamin C supplement available. But that does not mean that it’s the best form when it comes to absorption. Ascorbic acid is a desirable form of vitamin C to take if there is no concern with stomach upset. Since ascorbic acid is “acidic” then this form of vitamin C is often associated with a low bowel tolerance factor and when taken at mid to high doses commonly triggers stomach discomfort, stomach upset and an intestinal flushing. So, if you have a sensitive stomach, history of ulcer, colitis, IBS or any form of gut condition or inflammation then this is not a preferable form of vitamin C.

Mineral Ascorbates
The lion's share of all forms of vitamin C come as mineral ascorbates and the most common mineral ascorbates used in vitamin C supplementation include:

Sodium ascorbate
Calcium ascorbate
Magnesium ascorbate
Potassium ascorbate
Manganese ascorbate
Zinc ascorbate
Molybdenum ascorbate
Chromium ascorbate
Sodium Ascorbate

Sodium ascorbate is probably the best and certainly the least expensive of the mineral ascorbates for regular supplementation at relatively high doses. Sodium ascorbate is also the type of vitamin C that is used in liposomal vitamin C supplements. Sodium ascorbate is much kinder on the gut than ascorbic acid so it’s well-tolerated by individuals with stomach problems and digestive issues enabling higher bowel tolerance levels.

It should also be noted that large amounts of sodium ascorbate can be taken by those with high blood pressure and heart disease, without causing water retention or an increase in blood pressure. This is because it is sodium chloride, not sodium associated with an anion like ascorbate, citrate or bicarbonate, that reliably causes fluid retention and aggravates high blood pressure in individuals sensitive to volume overload. The term “sodium-dependent” hypertension should be replaced with “sodium chloride-dependent” or “table salt-dependent” hypertension.

However, since there always appear to be exceptions to every rule in biology, anyone who notices elevated blood pressure or ankle oedema after high doses of sodium ascorbate would be well-advised to supplement with a different form of vitamin C.

Calcium Ascorbate
Calcium ascorbate is slightly more expensive and is also marketed as "ester" or "buffered" vitamin C. Much of the popularity of this form of vitamin C comes from the fact that many people are looking for extra sources of calcium in addition to taking their vitamin C. These products typically deliver approximately 100mg of calcium for every 800 - 900mg of ascorbate. However, scientific data supports the concept that the vast majority of the older population is suffering from calcium toxicity. We continue to be stressed with warnings of increased risk of osteoporosis while the data clearly shows that most deaths in patients with osteoporosis relate to the vascular system and not the bones. The scientific evidence is very clear that supplemental calcium often fuels the progression of atherosclerosis, with the expected increased chance of heart attack. While it’s true that calcium ascorbate is easy on the stomach, sodium ascorbate is tolerated just as easily, is more affordable and does not aggravate calcium excess already present in most older individuals.

Magnesium Ascorbate
Magnesium ascorbate is an excellent form of vitamin C since it brings both magnesium and ascorbate into the body but it does come with a higher price tag. While there is nothing wrong with taking large amounts of magnesium ascorbate, it is more economical to take magnesium and sodium ascorbate separately and obtain the optimal effects of both these supplements.

Potassium Ascorbate
This is another good form of ascorbate supplementation but it does come with a potential health hazard since it is relatively easy to overdose on potassium which can cause fatal cardiac arrhythmias. Potassium should never be taken on a regular basis unless advised or prescribed by a healthcare practitioner.

Other mineral ascorbates
Manganese, zinc, molybdenum, and chromium ascorbates are additional mineral ascorbates which tend to be much more expensive. All of the cations are desirable as supplements, but they can be easily be overdosed if they are used to deliver multi-gram doses of ascorbate. Much more cost effective and safer to choose a sodium ascorbate instead.

Ascorbyl Palmitate
Ascorbyl palmitate is another form of vitamin C that is somewhat unique in that it has both water-soluble and fat-soluble qualities. This form of vitamin C is touted by some as a superior delivery of vitamin C than ascorbate. This has not really been clearly proven, and even if it were, ascorbyl palmitate would be a very expensive way to provide daily multi-gram doses of ascorbate. The fat-soluble qualities of ascorbyl palmitate do make it a good form of vitamin C to include in various skin creams and other dermatological preparations.

Liposome-encapsulated Ascorbate
One of the primary benefits of liposomal vitamin C is a near complete absorption of the encapsulated ascorbate into the bloodstream. The physical qualities of the liposome also eliminate the need for digestive activity before absorption and there is no intestinal flush effect with large doses. Furthermore, it appears to have a slower excretion rate and the highest absorption factor. The enhanced absorption along with the phospholipid dose absorbed has uniquely positive benefits and provides the best intracellular delivery of vitamin C
.

My Current Recommendations

For regular daily supplementation, sodium ascorbate is an economical, well-tolerated form of vitamin C. For those wishing to have a near-complete absorption of their vitamin C dose, the liposomal encapsulated form of vitamin C is optimal.

I am looking at a product on Amazon. It is a gallon bucket of Vitamin C powder. My concern is that it is made in China and packaged in the United States. The company is Earthborn Elements. Any thoughts positive or negative towards them?

It will work. They had those great results in the current studies with Made-In-China products.

Normally I recommend taking a local producer, but it seems that this option is limited for the US, since you guys have outsourced the vitamin c production to China. Europe makes it's own supply - medium-sized companies produce a lot.

Now Foods sources also from China, but they have their quality tests. I wouldn't be too concerned about it. I bought twice China-made vitamin C and it's pure. What I am at best slightly concerned is some minimal tainting of some metals, less about the quality. The quality of the vitamin is fine. So if you take it long-term then take some different brand.

In this situation I would grab what can be grabbed. You are not going to buy from there all the time. And again - for the US it's difficult anyway. It will work just the same whether you buy expensive high-end natural one that comes at 10-20 times the price.

I think the PH (2.1 - very acidic) of pure vitamin c is a valid concern for people sensitive to very acidic products. Although, I'm worried that a buffered version of vitamin c has reduce effectiveness or other side effects due to the additional ingredients; especially when consumed in megadoses.

My initial conclusion is that sodium ascorbate is best for maintenance and the pure stuff (or maybe even liposomal versions) is optimal when megadoseing and treating an illness. The aforementioned article also comes to the same conclusion.

Articles are one thing, but from my experience - most people get bloated by sodium ascorbate even if it's buffered.

Most people do better with pure powder. One orthomolecular MD I talked with in Germany said that based on his experience 10-15% of the population do better with the sodium ascorbate while the majority are fine with pure l-ascorbic acid. Most of my family and friends do better with pure l-ascorbic acid while one person I know likes the buffered version more.

Once you use it yourself, then you find the differences and which you prefer more. Acidity is not a concern becuase it's a nutrient and gets absorbed by the body. It's not for example citrus acidity that has to be broken down in a very different way.

RE: Health remedies and prevention for Coronavirus / flu
I had previously written a post about herbal remedies for the coronavirus in the original coronavirus thread, based on the research of Stephen Buhner, who is one of the best herbalists in the world. You can find that post here:

I just discovered that Stephen Buhner recently published a comprehensive paper describing various herbal protocols for healing from the coronavirus, titled "HERBAL TREATMENT FOR CORONAVIRUS INFECTIONS." You can find the web link here:

You can find another great article entitled "Everything You Need to Know about Coronavirus," with Dr. Ramzi Asfour, at this web link:

I've started taking 5000mg vit C per day (tablets) and ordered 250g powder earlier this week then another 1kg today to be safe lol.

With regards to l-ascorbic acid powder potentially damaging your teeth...was just thinking a possible solution would be just to wrap each dose in half a hemp cigarette paper and swallow it.

I'd imagine this is much less toxic than whatever the hell the plastic capsules made of and it would dissolve pretty much instantly

Plastic capsules? Stop buying garbage from China.

Gelatin capsules are manufactured from the collagen of animal skin or bone. Vegetable capsules are composed of vegetable cellulose. In other words, they are both made from the same ingredients as the foods that you eat. I am not sure how many people eat hemp.
