Vitamin c megadosing, is it safe?

12 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Is it dangerous? Sometimes I megadose vitamin c (like more or less like 15 capsules of 1mg a day for 3-4 days, from that I start reducing to 0), it works like a charm but I wonder if this could not damage the system. 

I saw in reddit a guy saying is completely Ok because 'you get out the excess of your body each day when you piss' but it seemed more like a bro science comment.

What is your experience while/after mega dosing?


Why did the pizza go to therapy?

Ms. Pizza had too many toppings to work through :-(

Depends ...

By taking capsules, most of your side effect profile will affect your gastrointestinal system (especially diarrhea).
You will only absorp a fraction  - meaining that much less of that will actually end up in your blood stream (i.v VitC can be much more "problematic")

That said, you will still peak at several 100 micromol/L.
If you are healthy and don't have any underlying condition (like  glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase defieciency) or kidney issues, you should be fine. If you have a family history of kidney stones or problems with iron storage (hemchromatosis), I would not recommend playing around with such high dosages.

i take it to ease withdrawal of opiates. I almost do not experience withdrawal at all, although who knows if it is a bit of placebo.

@Schizophonia  I have been on and off all this year, I just stop it when I get tired of it and come back when I miss it. 

Next week im going holidays for 2-3 weeks so ill be clean, but probably when I come back ill buy again...lol, is just what it is. 

The thing until I don´t I completely clean certain karmic issues I will keep using, both are just too intimately related.

Something really transformative has to happen within me to completely quit. Im close but not there yet
