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.
