How To Lose Weight With Vitamin C And Sodium Ascorbate
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.

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
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
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
At least 1000 mg: Vitamin c is extremely safe, so the worst that might happen from too much is loose stools.

No: You will not gain weight with these, but your wallet may become thinner. With a normal diet there is seldom a need for supplementary vitamins, and certainly not ginseng. If you want to gain weight (which may or may not be appropriate) you need to consume more calories than you are using. Simple math. Good luck. ...Read more

My gf is on BCP but she wants to start taking Vitamin C tablets. I'm just wondering if taking vitamin C can interfere with BCP and its effectiveness?
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
I think that I aspirated vitamin C pill. Would I be coughing if it were in my lungs? Is it unlikely if I'm not coughing?
Cough protects you: Aspirating happens quite commonly -I can't even count how many times I've taken a drink of water and it 'went down the wrong pipe'. The cough reflex is there to protect the lungs, and in ur case I would be almost certain ur body did what it was supposed to do -cough it OUT of the airways and back into the GI tract -oropharynx or esophagus. If cough persists, you have pain or other symptoms-see doc ...Read more

I take 6, 000 g of vitamin c. Apart from occasional mild diarrhea, I have no other obvious side effects. Are there other negatives for me? I'm 75.
You don't: 6, 000 g of anything is 6kg, or just> 13 lbs. You probably mean 6, 000 mg, which would be 6grams. 1 or 2 grams (! -2, 000 mg) should be more than enough. ...Read more
"Eye supplements" often contain a large number of vitamins/micronutrients which may overlap with ingredients in a prenatal vitamin to result in higher-than-recommended doses of certain ingredients. Excess vitamin C is removed by the kidneys, but not all excesses can be removed by the body so easily.
It would be better to take a daily prenatal vitamin and no further supplements while pregnant. ...Read more

I think you may mean: Vitamin D. As our bodies are able to produce vitamin D through exposure to sun. So if you have limited sun exposure or utilize a significant amount of sunscreen (which may be necessary for a number of reasons), then it probably wouldn't hurt to supplement your diet with a vitamin D supplement. ...Read more
