Nabilone is it safe for me to disolve with vitamin C packet or isopropyl alcohol mixed with water to inject? Is that going to harrm me? Its THC capsol

No!: Isopropyl (rubbing) alcohol should never be taken internally, orally or otherwise. It is poisonous and not at all chemically the same as drinkable, ethyl alcohol. But I reinforce colleagues' concern about homemade injectables. Discuss with your md the possible of a solution you can safely drink. ...Read more

What is liposomal vitamin C and how does it work?

Fool's gimmick: You're only 18 years old and probably have a good heart. The "healing miracle" claims made for this particular stuff ("Cure for Ebola! ") can't possibly be true. At your age, you don't want to believe that the world is so full of money-making fakery -- but it is. Talk with a science teacher at your school for guidance in recognizing obvious untruths -- for the sake of your survival in a bad world. ...Read more

Is the daily us of vitamin C oral capsule plus zinc harmful or the body or no?

Helpful, not harmful: Vitamin C protects against cardiovascular disease and increases longevity. I recommend everyone take 500-2000 mg of Vit C 2x/day. See http://bit. Ly/1fZ7IWk
Zinc deficiency is very common (over 40% of Americans are deficient) and taking zinc has many benefits, though too much can have adverse effects. Doses of 15-30 mg are safe.

How will my body utilize vitamin c?

How will my body utilize vitamin c?

Vit c: Vit c is a water soluble vitamin and our body does not manufacture it so the supply we get is via food resources and the level can fluctuate a lot and is labile. Some patients who have malabsorption syndromes or gastric bypass or who travel a lot (like pirates) can develop a deficiency as well. It can lead to anemia and bruising/bleeding problems and affect wound healing and lead to psychosis etc. ...Read more

During what parts of the body would an antioxidant like vitamin C be most useful?

Skin, bones, ligaments: Vitamin c is an essential component of collagen which in turn it's an abundant substance in the connective tissue. The connective tissue is what binds us together and hence it's present in the bones, skin, tendons, cartilage, ligaments, etc. But not only that, the liver, kidneys and other organs have connective tissue.

Please help! What happens when sodium benzoate is combined with vitamin C in the body?

Please help! What happens when sodium benzoate is combined with vitamin C in the body?

Nothing: There was a hoopla a while back about the mix of sodium benzoate (a preservative, chemically interchangeable to the natural benzoic acid that makes cranberries so tasty) and Ascorbic Acid (added to make fake orange drink healthy, I guess) forming benzene if left to sit in the hot sun. The amount was tiny and I wouldn't worry about it in your body. This stuff is silly. Don't worry. ...Read more

Is there a good benefit in using a skin care product based on vitamin c? (from a store called the body shop).

Is there a good benefit in using a skin care product based on vitamin c? (from a store called the body shop).

Buy Vit C carefully: Naturally occurring vitamin c is not particularly stable, so product preparation is important. For a topical vitamin c formulation to work, it must remain stable, penetrate the skin, and be available in high enough concentration to have a biologic effect. Research indicates the gold standard is stable l-ascorbic acid at high concentration (between 10% - 20%) and at low ph (<3.5). ...Read more

I have been taking vitamin d and vitamin c for a year. Did both of them absorb or accumulate in body? If they are accumulated is it bad? What do I do?

Can be, thus check: Blood concentrations of vitamin D3 (D3, not just D or D2). The fat soluble vitamins are the ones more easily overdosed & dangerous. Yet problems are commonly way down the road; subtle or sudden. Overdose with water soluble vitamins, e.g. B group & C, is more difficult, yet research on taking C >500 mg/day correlates with ↑ed cardiovascular problems. No easy way to recognize on individual basis. ...Read more

Almost every week my gf has a blatter infection. We have safe sex I stay clean and she takes a lot of vitamin c. But its still happening. What can I do

Many possibilities: Sometimes eating sugar lowers the body's ability to fight infection. Eat healthy and avoid sugar & alcohol before sex. Drinking uva ursi tea or taking a strong capsule of cranberry extract with with 8 oz of water and then urinating flushes out bacteria after sex. Eating lots of vegetables and avoiding dairy, wheat and sugar prevents the growth of e coli in the GI tract. ...Read more

I keep reading there is no proof that daily vitamin c can help the body, but a deficiency is bad so shouldn't you try to eat alot of foods with vit c?

I keep reading there is no proof that daily vitamin c can help the body, but a deficiency is bad so shouldn't you try to eat alot of foods with vit c?

Vitamins/minerals: The body needs dozens and dozens of vitamins and minerals to work properly. Vitamin C is only one of them. A deficiency of any of them is not good. An excess of some is also not good. Excess Vit C is simply excreted by the kidneys into the urine. Your body is very good at regulating it. I recommend a balanced diet, with the RDA of VitC. Having "a lot" more than recommended won't keep you healthier. ...Read more
