Going to ask this question again

Post Number:#1  Post by guitarplayer007 » Tue Jun 13, 2017 5:15 am

Do we have to take Vitamin C in the form of powder or can we take capsules? I've been doing the powder for 10 weeks now and don't mind the cardio C with lysine and proline but the pure vitamin powder is harsh on the throat. So if I could take capsules sometimes that would help.

Thanks
Ken

Add some Stevia to the mix to sweeten things up without adding sugar to it.

You can get it at a health food store and some big box stores! It’s getting to be a common product!

Capsules generally have a lot of fillers and taking a lot of cap’s means you’ll be taking a lot of stuff you don’t need!

I hope you are using a straw when consuming Vitamin C powder, as the acid in C might strip away of your enamel.

We don't have a lot of experience, but in theory, so long as the vitamin C is mostly ascorbic acid, it should not matter whether the vitamin is taken down the throat encased in a gelatin capsule. (In fact, this should make it EASIER to take the vitamin C as ascorbic acid - so as to not irritate the throat/esophagus.)

The way to find out is to repeat our bioavailability experiments with 10 grams in capsules using a ascorbate-sensitive glucose meter.

OMG I haven't been, usually rinse my mouth out with water then brush teeth, is that enough?
Never used a straw to drink vitamin C. I don't understand why they can't make capules with 3 or 4 grams in them so we don't have to drink so much liquid every day

I wouldnt brush my teeth
use a water pic, if anything
brushing teeth is just going to grind the vit C or food against the tooth and cause more harm than good

Search Results
According to the Mayo Clinic, if you've consumed anything acidic, you should avoid brushing your teeth for at least 30 minutes. Foods containing citric acid, like oranges, grapefruits and lemons, weaken tooth enamel. Brushing too soon after eating them can damage the enamel in its weakened state.

I pasted what they said

I asked AGAIN cos they arent answering my question about WHY OR WHAT THE F IS "crystalline"



they said:



The Vitamin C that is in the Twinlab C-1000 is produced through fermentation of corn sourced sugars. The end product has no traces of corn left over making it crystalline pure ascorbic acid.



Hope that helps
