So my Naturalpathic physician/cousin and I were talking, and he disputed that there is any difference between SA and absorbic acid. "Sounds like a marketing gimic to me" he said. Anyone have any good references I could point him too?

sodium bicarb is baking soda.

SA isn't marketed IMO. Very few people know about it's difference in Ph, and why the body absorbs more. Now ESTER-C *that* is a marketing ploy without research to back it up.

Tell him to look into the spectatular clinical work of Frederick Klenner using SA, he'll learn a lot more than just the difference between SA and AA.

And to make his life easier, his work is online here:

and

I looked through both articles (though not thoroughly) and they mostly seemed to mention absorbic acid and not SA. Am I missing something (quite likely)?

Yes!

This was on the very top of the second link:

Quote:
Comment by Robert F. Cathcart, M.D.: This paper repeatedly refers to intravenous ascorbic acid. My personal experience, my talking with Klenner, and with his wife, Annie Klenner, who served as his nurse, would indicate that he means sodium ascorbate. See my article on how to make intravenous C solutions. I am especially indebted to Annie Klenner for her descriptions of how Fred made the intravenous solutions of sodium ascorbate.
But the content of Klenner's work is the point Jane was wanting to get across (I believe).

I just got done reading this whole thread! Do I get an award of some kind?

Doesn't the vitamin C researcher Dr. Cathcart and other pro-vitamin C sites recommend plain AA rather than SA for oral intake?

I notice that in the links in support of SA in this thread, it mainly talks about using it for I.V. use (although Klenner himself used oral SA) rather than orally. I wonder why that is, if it is the superior form?

The only time I saw SA recommended above AA was for allergies and adrenal problems, at least in the limited google searches I did.

Chicharronita, sorry, I don't know the answer to your questions, and I think they are good ones.

I just wanted to add that after much experimentation, I found a way to get my 2 year old to take SA pretty easily. I mix it in strawberry jam. I have been giving him 1/2 teaspoon of SA at a time, in one teaspoon of strawberry jam (the fruit juice-sweetened kind). He also will take it in a teaspoon of honey, but the jam masks the taste even better. As others have posted, it is sometimes really hard to get a child to take SA. This finally worked for me, and I am happy to report that after two days of about 10 grams of SA, his chronically runny nose has ceased running!
Thanks MT, for giving me the idea and the knowledge to back it up.

That's okay; thanks for responding. I got a bottle of SA, and took 2 to 3G doses at a time (about 6 to 9G a day) until the bottle was half-empty.

It didn't have the same "punch" as when I take AA, and have gone back to taking AA instead.

I've been thinking about this a lot, especially because I read Kundalini-Mama was taking it before she passed away.

Here's a general comment about taking SA throughout the day.
