I don't know if someone has already answered this, but I thought I'd reply anyway. I am pretty sure that bioflavonoids are in the white part of the skin of citrus fruit, not in the juice. So drinking OJ won't provide any bioflavonoids.

This thread is fascinating!!! I'm so glad MT is here to explain everything to us--especially to those of us who are new on our journey!!

You don't need me. Scour second hand book shops for books on vitamin C, and read everything you can get your hands on, then you will know the answers anyway...

My teas always tasted like gutter water. My mom's OMG smelled awful. She got prunes to sweeten the mix but I don't think it made a difference.

So can we just eat the white stuff?

technically you can eat any part of an orange or citrus fruits, my brother eats lemons like apples (i know....gross). But it can be bitter.

I wish, but here it seems all citrus fruits come with a layer of wax. : At least in the supermarket they do.

Yes. I do.

And you can make a muffic recipe that makes a liquid base mix of oil(1/4 cup) , molasses (2 tbsps ~ ours is blackstrap, much stronger than USA...), (1/2 cup liquid h) honey, 1 egg, 1 large banana, and 1 orange skin and all... but not the pips. You blend that until thick and creamy then add dry ingreds= 3 cups bran, 1 cup wholewheat flours, 1 cup raisins (My kids hate raisins, so I leave them out) 1/2 cup wheat germ, 2 tsps baking powder, 2 tsps baking soda, and sometimes I add cinnamon.

12-18 muffins, well greased, better still lined. They can stick. 375 o F, 15 - 20 mins until firm to touch. If not lining, let cool a bit in the tins, or they might not come out well...

I defy anyone to be constipated after some of them.

I have been using SA for a good while now but when I use it on my youngest who is 5 she always gets irritated in her private region. it will burn when she pees and her skin get real red. Have any of you had this problem at all.
thanks

Are you using non-corn, non-GMO SA? If it doesn't say so, it's probably corn-derived, and GMO. Some people have problems with corn-based products, and would have a problem with SA because of that. Nutribiotic makes one that is corn-free and non-GMO.
post #253 of 564
do you have a link for them, I can't eat corn.

yeah, that does play a factor........he used to pick them straight off the tree in the backyard (much to my mothers dismay, because she always tryed to save them for her lemon drink when she had a cold).

Yes, I've know two kids have this problem. I'm not sure why. Normally you only see this when ascorbic acid is used. What's she like if you give small doses with a meal?
post #256 of 564
it doesnt seem to matter how much I give her and how it is given. Usually by the next morning her privates are sore and soon as I discontinue useing it it takes her a day to clear up.

I am using the NOW brand of sodium ascorbate could it be the brand?
This one says Vegetarian formula I dont see the Non GMO on it
thanks

What part of SA is corn-derived? The sodium or the ascorbic acid?
Or are there any other additives in it?
I am also using NOW brand.

I mean, if you are out in your SUV with Doc Martens, and the latest pram, who wants to be dealing with something as basic as powder?


so true!
you're too funny!
I thought only the ancient egyptians used powdered forms

romans mum, here's the link for nutribiotic: http://www.nutribiotic.com/ (they make GSE too). I think it's the ascorbic acid that is corn derived. It's one of those allergy things they don't always tell you.
