High Much Vitamin C?

Guest
Hello, I've been taking large amounts of vitamin C for a chronic prostate infection. I took 6 grams
a day the first week, and was symptom free for several days. The second week I doubled the dose,
which helped for awhile. It's now been three weeks at 12 grams a day, and my symptoms are returning.
Should I increase the dose further? I have not experience any loose bowels or gas, in fact I'm still
slightly constipated (although not as bad as I am without the vitamin C).

Thanks, Larry

Try real, pure cranberry juice from a health food store for UTI.

Not the drink ****! It has to be pure! If you can drink it easily it is mixed with some sugar based
ingredient.

I believe ascorbic acid is not very good for UTI infections because of the pH. Somebody confirm.

It works once or twice. But I have to keep taking it.

Linus Pauling was taking 20 grams a day when he died at 93.

You are supposed to take the vitamin C in increasing amounts until you get the runs and then cut
back until you no longer .. get .. the .. runs.

Proof that large doses of vitamin C can be fatal. :)

It is the other way round, at least as a preventative. The lower pH is less favorable for the
microorganisms that cause UTIs.

I tried high "Pauling level" doses when I was young. I got not only the runs and gas but
also polyuria.

You should reach bowl tolerance in order to deal with the inflammation. Since your condition
dictates at what amount it will happen you should continue until you reach this amount. I did it
many times when ill or having inflammation of all kinds, reaching in severe cases to 50-60 grams a
day.The cure is optimal only when you reach bowl tolerance. beni.

Joe User is a Fool.

Pauling a former smoker who quit around age 50 and lived to age 93. You'll be lucky to make it to
age 76. He made it to age 93 despite loving to barbeque meat which is a rich source of PAHs and
PCAAs......carcinogens.

I couldn't resist either..........William A. Noyes

Joe's comment is as old and stale as the dihydrogen oxide gag/comment.
