Linda’s comments: Thank you for high-dose VitC therapy….I have used VitC in high doses for over 30 years with great success. My daily dosing is 20,000 grams. I use one of the best VitC’s on the market…yes I pay more, but I do pay more because I know it is the best money can buy. I don’t get colds, flu and infections. Those that say that VitC didn’t work for them, is more than likely because they took such a small dose….I even give my dogs 4000 mgs a day of VitC in their gallon water jug….they love it….Bio En’R-Gy C is my personal choice…easy to mix and taste good.
(OMNS, January 5, 2010) The medical literature has virtually ignored 75 years of physician reports and laboratory and clinical studies on successful high-dose vitamin C therapy.
Effective doses are high doses, often 1,000 times more than the US Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) or Daily Reference Intake (DRI). It is a cornerstone of medical science that dose affects treatment outcome. This premise is accepted with pharmaceutical drug therapy, but not with vitamin therapy. Most unsuccessful vitamin C research has used inadequate, low doses. Low doses do not get clinical results.
Investigators using vitamin C in high doses have consistently reported excellent results. High doses were advocated almost immediately after ascorbic acid was isolated by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, M.D. (1893-1986). Notable early medical pioneers of high-dose vitamin C (ascorbate) therapy are Claus Washington Jungeblut, M.D. (1898-1976); William J. McCormick, M.D. (1880-1968); and Frederick R. Klenner, M.D. (1907-1984). More recently, important work has been published by Hugh D. Riordan, M.D. (1932-2005) and Robert F. Cathcart III, M.D. (1932-2007).
