Normal flatus volume range is around 476 to 1,491 ml per 24 hours.

It is not surprising that there are difficulties for many people trying to "eat" so much vitamin C. For me, 18 to 20 grams has worked a miracle, but as I have reported before, my own father could barely tolerate 200 mg daily.
Garry Gordon, apparently the late Garry Gordon, father of Chelation Therapy, developed BioEnergy C because he himself could not tolerate the oral amounts of vitamin C he knew promoted good health. He claimed he could take up to 4 times as much of his product, (versus ordinary C powder), without stomach upset. We know some of the ingredients, but the formula has been changed, and is now produced by who knows who? We'd like to mimic the product, come up with a formula that improves absorption and minimizes gas and stomach upset. Gordon on a youtube video claims it took 10 years to develop BioEnergy C. And he mentioned some sugars of Aloe as important ingredients (not found on any label), which makes sense. Before the "kiwi" research, aloe vera was the only substance that has been scientifically shown to improve the bioavailbility of vitamin C (Vinson).
Sherry Lewin, in her 1976 book, VITAMIN C: ITS BIOLOGY AND MEDICAL POTENTIAL, suggested charcoal supplements for people with excessive flatulence.
