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?
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
