Ascorbate Sod Medication
Ingredients: These are primarily intended for slightly different conditions so it depends on what you are trying to accomplish. One is not 'better' than the other. Ask your provider or read about the concern you have. MA can be helpful for digestion issues. Some say SA can help cell function to improve concerns like malignancy. Neither in moderation is likely to be dangerous. ...Read more
I recommend everyone take 500-2000 mg of Vit C twice a day and if you have an acid problem it's wise to take a buffered form like calcium ascorbate. You should not have any difficulty tolerating this.
If by "acid problem" you mean tendency to heartburn please see http://tinyurl. Com/p88fxjm
for great advice on approaches to curing it. ...Read more
Not exactly the same: Sodium ascorbate is one of the mineral salts contained in ascorbic acid/vitamin C. It does not seem to be more bioavailable (available for use by the body) than other forms of vitamin C supplementation. There is also the down side that it contains sodium. I would discourage you from considering megadosing anything, including vitamin C. Stay well:) ...Read more

Is ascorbic acid a synthetic form of vitamin c? What is more effective calcium ascorbate or sodium ascorbate?
Not necessarily;same: All vitamins go by 2 names, their letter name & chemical name. Ascorbic acid is the chemical name of vit c, as pyridoxine is the chemical name of b6 etc. Ascorbic acid refers to both natural & synthetic forms. Almost all vit c supps are synthetic & most derived from corn which is likely gmo. I favor c from non-corn sources like cassava root.Calcium & sodium ascorbate are equally effective. See comment:. ...Read more
Is it okay to drink Calcium Ascorbate Vit C while drinking Cefdinir Safdicure 300mg Antibiotic? Thanks for the response.
Can your body the same amount C-vitaming from absorb calcium ascorbate and ascorbic acid? I have problems with my stomach.
Yes, buffered ascorbate (including calcium, magnesium and sodium ascorbate) is absorbed as well as ascorbic acid.
The best-absorbed form of vitamin C is liposomal Vit. C.
Lyposphreric C, which is sodium ascorbate mixed with phospholipids for enhanced absorption, is a product I often recommend. See

Unknown. Go natural.: Unless there are specific deficiencies in a woman, going natural is safest. It is not known what happens when a woman takes various drugs or chemicals, nor what is actually in various tablets or potions sold in stores or online. Eating a natural, balanced, healthy diet is safest (one can choose Organic foods if one feels Organic is safer). One can take a trusted brand of a daily prenatal vitamin. ...Read more
Can I take vitamin C pills (always made of sodium/potassium bicarbonate, (sodium bicarbonate) ascorbate, benzoate...) w. pulmonary hypertension requiring low sodium diet?
Yes, however...: I strongly advise you take Vitamin C, ideally 1000 mg 2-3x/day, but you should try to find forms without sodium. I don't know what's available in Denmark, but in the US you can find ascorbic acid, or calcium or magnesium ascorbate without sodium. Lypo-spheric Vit. C is esp. Well-absorbed, but has 120 mg of sodium, but a low sodium diet usually allows 2000mg/day. Vit. C is best with bioflavonoids. ...Read more
There are none...: Even the strongest opiates only "take the edge off" for people in chronic pain. Meds are only one part of dealing with the pain. A useful tool, but pain is so necessary for survival that we are not "allowed" to monkey with it much. In acute pain, the transition from miserable to less miserable can be great. In chronic pain, it's just part of the plan. ...Read more
Sometimes: Sometimes they are. For the most part, expired drugs simply lose potency once past their expiration date. There are, however, some drugs that actually become harmful if taken after they expire. As such, it is best to throw out any medications you have after a year. ...Read more
ASPRIN: Actually no one has decided on 'safest'. Asprin has been around since before you were born and unless you take too much (yes, too much of anything isn't good) most people are okay with it. If the pain it too severe for asprin you need to know what causes it. Good diagnosis is called for. See the dr. ...Read more
Applies to skin: Topical just refers to how a medication is applied. In this case to the skin and is meant to treat local skin problems. Some meds are applied to the skin but are meant to be absorbed into the body in which case we use the term "transdermal" since it is meant to pass through the skin to affect the whole body. ...Read more

RSD, or: Complex regional pain syndrome can be difficult to treat and each patient needs to be treated differently. Opioid medications are definitely not the first option. Consider medications that affect nerve pain most, like neuromodulators such as gabapentin. Clonidine has been found to help some as well. Stellate ganglion blocks can be diagnostic/therapeutic. Consider topical ketamine creams as well. ...Read more
Antacid: An h2 blocker (like Pepcid (famotidine) or its generic) once or twice daily, provides relief for many after about a week. If this fails, a proton pump inhibitor (ppi--like Prilosec or its generic) will often work where h2's have failed. If both fail after at least one week trial of each, see your dr or a GI dr for eval. ...Read more
