yes, thanks for the code
I just ordered 2.2 lbs today but I'll definately take advantage of b1g1 free.
If you check APS (automatic shipment) at checkout, you get 20% off every order! You can set shipment at 30, 60, or 90 days, it's a good deal.

Is the Bronsons truly SA? It seems that it says it is ascorbic acid, or does the non-acidic part mean that it is SA?

Soluble fine crystals. One furnished scoopful, approx. 1/4 teaspoon, contains approximately 1,000 mg. vitamin C and 124 mg. sodium in the form of sodium ascorbate. This product has little or no taste.

Nah, its landed here at abt $40.00 and they sell it wholesale at $64, and then the shops put a whopping markup and sell it for over $100.00.

It's when you've been to China and see what some of these things we pay mega-bucks for here, go for over there, that you realise that the prices we pay for things is because it is, because X gets paid for handing it to Y, but the problem is that if the mark-up is profit~40% there comes a point where you need to be a millionaire to buy it.

I've been meaning to ask a couple of questions.

A little history: I have malabsorption, loose stools, floaty.

I have been making every attempt to take SA to optidose (with bioflavinoids) as much as possible. Trouble is, my optidose seems to ne higher than I am able to take. Rather than getting watery diarrhea, my stool actually becomes formed. Still floaty, but formed. One time I thought I made my optidose at 23 grams. Daily I take 3 grams an hour as long as I am awake, so probably from 10a-10p. I might miss a dose here and there, so let's guess that daily I am taking at least 21 - 24 grams. Still no watery D.

I seem to remember reading that a body cannot absorb more than 1 gram per hour, so any more is a waste. Is this true? If so, am I wasting my SA taking 3 grams per hour, and also if true, how can I get enough in me to reach my optidose?

Please please please help! I really want this to work, I can see by the improved stool already that it makes a huge difference for me, so am I getting the whole 24 grams I'm taking or is there a better way?

This is interesting, because I tried to find my optimum dose and when I got to 16 grams a day and still no runs, I gave up. I don't have an immune difficiency, so it just didn't make sense that I needed that much. I think there may be a few people who just don't get the runs from SA. I have settled down to 3 or 4 grams a day, with much higher doses if I am stressed or think I'm getting sick.

I thought bm was supposed to float? One of those things I always get confused about.

See now, I thought BMs weren't supposed to float. Means improper digestion of fat or something.
post #289 of 564
I've read that BM's ARE supposed to float and that they AREN'T supposed to float. I basically figure as long as they're frequent and not constipated it probably doesn't matter whether they float or not

I've had odd experiences with SA to bowel tolerance...I'll take a lot (25-35 grams) a day for several days without reaching bowel tolerance. Then I'll suddenly reach bowel tolerance at a lower dose (15-20 grams). I'm not sure if my body is healing some while I'm taking the large doses so at some point it doesn't need as much, or if it take a while to "saturate" my body and then I need less to maintain that level. I don't have immune problems but am trying to fight a candida overgrowth, so apparently my body needs a lot of vitamin C.

chasmyn--I'm certain the body can absorb more than 1 gram/hour. When C is used to treat diseases, a lot more than that is given (and apparently necessary). I currently take 2.5 grams every 2 hours (too hard to remember to take some every hour)...I don't get to bowel tolerance with 1 gram/hour, so it seems that my body utilizes more than a gram an hour.

Is it a once yearly kinda thing, or do they have this special regularly (for SA)?
Thanks!
post #294 of 564
I've got a question about when to take SA and how much. I've noticed some of you talking about taking it every hour or so until bowel tolerance. Is this something you do every day? Or do you only do it once to determine the proper dose? I've just been guessing about 6g a day, which I split up into an a.m. dose and a p.m. dose.

Just wondering though...I put (4) 2.2 pound containers of SA in my cart, but it only showed one for free...did the coupon say there was a limit? Hummm, I'll call them in the morning
post #298 of 564
Thanks for the coupon tips! I just ordered more last month - - they had a 1/2 off sale & free shipping. Guess I should take advantage of this deal too though.

I wanted to say that I have that problem too now. : I thought it was yeast but it gets so much worse after using SA! I was using NOW brand so I wonder if it's an allergic reaction. As soon as I stop it goes away.
post #300 of 564
yeah soon as she stops it goes away also. I am gonna have to try a different kind i think
