Is giving straight Sodium Ascorbate better than vitamin c in it's regular form?? If so can you give SA to infants? [I] think I read in the archives here one lady who said you can mix the SA powder with breastmilk and give it to infants in a dropper. Was wondering if anybody here knows much about SA. I know lots of people say to mega dose with SA for pertussus, but that it has to be SA and not plain old Vit C. was wondering why that is?? Isn't SA just buffered Vitamin C?? I would like to be giving my son who is sick with a cold extra C for immune boosting purposes but am not sure if I should get striaght SA or just go out and get some baby Vit C drops. Also how much to give??Also there are other Vitamin C mineral salts so why is the sodium ascorbate the best one instead of potassium or calcium or any of the others??
