Can daily doses of vitamin c, selenium, & folic acid improve the body's defenses against hpv? What about a decaffeinated green tea extract supplement?

Lack of evidence: There is no peer-reviewed researched evidence to support use of these supplements to improve defenses against hpv. But eating a diet high in fresh fruits and vegetables especially cruciferous and high in beta-carotene may be helpful. ...Read more

What's the best time of day to take vitamin C supplements?

What's the best time of day to take vitamin C supplements?

Any time is good: Our bodies need vitamin c 24 hours a day so it should not make a big difference when you take it. However, vitamin c does not stay in your body for very long so it is wise to take it at least twice a day. I take vitamin c in the morning and evening but it might be even better to take 3x/day. I advise 500mg-2000 mg per dose. See http://www.Vitamincfoundation.Org/faq.Shtml#q7. ...Read more

What is the best vitamin C supplement?

What is the best vitamin C supplement?

Lypo-Spheric C: Until recently i would have said most vitamin c is created equal, but a relatively new formulation called lypo-spheric c is much better absorbed and can cross cell membranes better. See http://www.Livonlabs.Com/ it is pricier than other forms of c, but if you are motivated you can make your own liposomal vit c at home: see http://www.Quantumbalancing.Com/liposomalc.Htm. ...Read more

This is okay: It's unlikely to do you any good or harm. The people who get into trouble with Ascorbic Acid have taken more than ten times this much. I'm going to assume you have normal kidney function. Thanks for writing. ...Read more

Is too much vitamin C harmful? I take a 500mg supplement everyday

Is too much vitamin C harmful? I take a 500mg supplement everyday

That's safe: I'm assuming you are otherwise healthy. It is probably not doing you any good or any harm. Very high doses can produce oxalate toxicity and ruin your kidneys. I think every physician here will agree with me that health doesn't come out of a pill bottle. You're in the prime of your manhood -- perhaps you are already undertaking, or considering, a major fitness ccommitment. More good than vitamins. ...Read more

I'm looking for best vitamin C supplements. What do you recommend?

I'm looking for best vitamin C supplements. What do you recommend?

Not necessarily one: Best. If you really feel like you need to take a vitamin C supplement, as it will always be better to derive it from natural sources like fruits and vegetables, consider purchasing a supplement which is either USP or NSF certified. At least in these instances there is third party validation for the potency, purity, and limits of contamination. ...Read more
