Sodium Ascorbate - Page 21

post #401 of 431
Sodium is the ion that is needed to process the ascorbate. Bicarbonate is the part needed to reduce the acidity.

As Tom Levy says, sodium chloride is a whole nother chemical with different functions.

Here the aim is to reduce acidity. Therefore you need the bicarb bit. Sodium is needed to process the ascorbate. In this circumstance why are you considering sodium chloride?

Because it tastes better.

Well, then, fire ahead.

But you could always put it in guacamole, and eat that with carrot sticks... ?

MT--do you have any links or info on what the proper pH of the gut is? I used to test my urine pH but I gave up because there were so many different opinions on what the "correct" pH range should be that I didn't know what to look for.

MT's book is more of a vax book, it's called "Just a Little Prick". I've read a couple of good books on vitamin C, the one I can remember the title of is called "Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases, and Toxins". I think the other one was called "Vitamin C The Pros and Cons" or something like that.

No, I don't. I know what the ph in the gut, of a breast fed baby is, but I've no idea what it "should" be in an adult. Sorry.

It's not quite the sort of thing I'm that interested in persuing.

The title of my book is what every nurse says to every child in this country before they get an injection of anything, be it a vaccine, a blood test, ... anything with a needle.

Talking about Vitamin C, I've just read the MOST AMAZING book. It's the 1982 reprint of a 1920 book called Scurvy: Past and Present by Alfred F. Hess MD.

It is totally, totally.. mindblowing. Yoweeeee!!! It fills in so many gaps, and is just... amazing.

Apart from Thomas Levy's book on Vitamin C, Infectious disease and toxins, I've just bought his other one called Stop America's #1 Killer! Reversible Vitamin Deficiency found to be Origin of ALL coronary Heart Disease.

I bought this, because I also have Professor C Alan B Clemetson's 3 volume text book set from 1989, (which is also amazing, but technical, but very hard to get...) and had corresponded with him for many years, so also have his articles about the research he did on vitamin C deficiency and coronary heart disease, and I'm looking forward to seeing if Dr Levy adds anything to that body of work.

The other books on vitamin C I like are Ascorbate, The science of Vitamin C by Dr. Steve Hickey & Dr. Hilary Roberts.

Of the older ones I also like The Healing Factor Vitamin C against Disease by Irwin Stone;

vitamin C and the Common Cold Linus Pauling

And

The Vitamin C connection. Dr Emanuel Cheraskin.

Then there are two others by Dr Archie Kalokerinos:

Every second child

and

Vitamin C, Natures Miraculous Healing Missile.

But Dr Hess's book has put the whole lot into perspective.

Can it be SA?

Hi,
I've ordered SA through the internet and started to take it few days ago. Pretty much since then I have noticed that my 2m.o. dd started to spit up MUCH more (she almost never did it before, VERY VERY RARE). Can it be because of SA that she is getting through my breast milk?
I'm not eating ANY dairy since before she was born, nor soy, spices, nuts and other foods that are likely to cause allergic reactions in newborns. And I didn’t change anything in my diet other than introducing SA.
Thanks,
Yulia.

The only way to know for sure if it's the SA is to eliminate it for a few days. If you've also eliminated corn, and the SA is corn-derived, it could be that. What brand is it?

I did two times and both times it helped with spit ups. I don't really eat corn but I suppose I'm getting some of it as an ingredient of some other foods and I never noticed her reacting to it..
Can it be that she gets overdosed through my breastmilk? I was taking a recommended dosage.
The brand is BRONSON. It taste ok with juice, but with water it tastes like baking soda. Is it normal?
Thanks,
Yulia.

The problem might be your gut flora, because if its out of balance more towards gram negative, (or yeast) then you have have a growling orchestra.
I've definitely had a growling orchestra.

Will the SA take care of this itself in time or should I be doing somethign else for this issue?
post #416 of 431
Wow, just finished this thread. It's taken me a week with my little snippets of internet time. I am fascinated by diet & nutrition, have taken classes, etc.
But, MT:

I've never had an instructor be so concise & also answer with so much patience & humor.
Thanks for this.

Now, off to try to get thru the nutrition/immunology thread!

post #420 of 431
Wow! Finally finished this thread - have learned SO much. Question - why is Emergency an option? Mine does not list sodium ascorbate as its form of vit c. Is it ok because it also has sodium bicarbonate?
