Son in college has mono

Post Number:#1  Post by ofonorow » Sun Dec 18, 2011 3:31 am

Dear Owen Fonorow,

I have a son in college that has mono. I would like to get him some ascorbic acid (bowel tolerance level dosage) but am concerned if the product is not buffered. Is your World's Finest Vitamin C buffered?

Thank you.


Jeff


Good idea to put him on high dose vitamin C!

Bowel tolerance for mono can be 200 g per day!

Ascorbic acid (mild acid) is probably best for mono - but you can take both our ascorbic acid and our alkaline sodium ascorbate. Or you can add some sodium bicarb (baking soda) to the vitamin C drink.

I take both ascorbic acid and sodium ascorbate myself - about 50/50

tones of carrots


And the reason? Increased vitamin A?? If so, a good idea, and retinol supplements are available that would be easier to take! (Without risk that the carotenes cannot be converted to vitamin A.)

I don't know.

That is something one old doctor told my mother after I was in hospital in my 16es (1993) when I got severe type of mono. They couldn't do anything for me in the hospital for 2 months and I was totally cured by 1kg of raw carrot every day. My mother said doctors were amazed by my recovery.

I searched now, and there is some evidence about EVB replication inhibition:

Therefore, since in our study retinoids have proved
to efficaciously inhibit in vitro proliferation of EBV-infected
cells at achievable and nontoxic doses without directly i n -
terfering with virus-cell interactions, these compounds may
be useful in the medical treatment of lymphoproliferative
disorders in the immunosuppressed host, especially in the
earlier phases of the disease.
