Vitamin c flushing can reboot the metabolism, shed toxins, and improve energy and digestion.
It’s fascinating how there is no specific dose of vitamin c to take while flushing. Each body has a different toxin load and will require varying amounts of vitamin c.
The Department of Nutrition at Arizona State University found that “individuals with adequate vitamin C status oxidize 30% more fat during a moderate exercise bout than individuals with low vitamin C status; thus, vitamin C depleted individuals may be more resistant to fat mass loss,” (Johnston C, June, 2005.)
Vitamin c is an excellent addition to any weight loss protocol. It can be continued daily to help the body always maintain a healthy weight.
Vitamin B3 is another awesome vitamin to supplement for weight loss.
Vitamin b3 protects the body against diet induced obesity. According to the Molecular Nutrition & Food Research Journal “Niacinamide influences whole-body energy expenditure by driving changes in the adipose phenotype. Thus, Niacinamide is an attractive potential treatment for preventing obesity and associated complications,” (Mol Nutr Food Res, June 2021.)
I have also witnessed complete cessation of cravings in myself and clients taking megadoses off vitamin b3. Which makes sense considering Abram Hoffer successfully used high doses of vitamin b3 in Alcoholics Anonymous to help with alcohol cravings.
Vitamin C and vitamin B3 are excellent micronutrients for weight loss support alongside a healthy organic diet. Both support the bodies metabolism and fight against toxin load.
Vitamin C flushing(daily)
Take 3-5 grams of ascorbic acid every 15 minutes until you experience loose bowels. Do not cause excessive watery stools. Aim for a gentle flush. Stay hydrated!
500mg 3x daily is an excellent dose
Niacinamide or inositol nicotinate are excellent forms.
Kids(and adults) Defense contains vitamin c and B3 in a delicious powder for easy dosing!

It can be confusing trying to decide on a vitamin c supplement to take. There are so many choices and so much confusing information. One would assume that whole food vitamin c is better because it is made from food. That’s not the case at all. Many whole food vitamin c’s are processed and synthesized in a lab just like ascorbic acid. The only difference is the ingredients used. Ascorbic acid is produced from d-sorbitol, a sugar alcohol which comes mainly from corn or potatoes.
The production is a complex process that involves the fermentation of d-sorbitol. No toxic chemicals are involved and nothing is left over in the end except for the chemical compound C6H8O6. I have analyzed certificates of analysis for years and never have I observed an ascorbic acid that was contaminated with things such as corn, GMO’s, and other possible allergens.
It is impossible to understand the extreme importance of supplementing vitamin c unless you have read the book, The Healing Factor by Irwin Stone. This book goes into great depth about human genetics and how a mutation of the GLO(L-gulono-γ-lactone oxidase) gene left some primates unable to manufacture vitamin c over 61 million years ago. There have been many theories over the years as to why we lost the ability to produce ascorbic acid. One specific theory is that a virus caused the mutation. Many animals like cats and dogs still produce ascorbic acid. Primates never produced whole food vitamin c, and our furry friends currently do not either. ascorbic acid is what is produced. What’s even more fascinating about ascorbic acid is humans don’t just suffer from deficiencies we also suffer from a dependency of ascorbic acid. Because vitamin c is vital for so many chemical reactions within the body the RDA is not enough and never will be. It is irresponsible to say that one specific dose is adequate for all human beings. When the fact is that we all have different needs depending on things like genetics and toxin exposure. What makes ascorbic acid dosing amazing is we are able to take as much as we can and our body will have a limit when loose bowels are produced. That is the perfect amount for each individual. One person can take 10 grams daily while another needs upwards of 100 grams.
It is impossible to find our daily needs using whole food c without overdosing on bioflavonoids and possible additives. Keep it pure and simple for good health! Get your bioflavonoids from food since you don’t need as much as ascorbic acid.
When people start taking large doses of vitamin c daily they start to notice better health. As long as bowel tolerance is maintained a flu that would knock one down becomes nothing more than body aches and minor cold symptoms. Some individuals produce no symptoms at all. Unfortunately, this cannot be achieved with whole food c and can you imagine the cost of taking 100 grams daily of acerola or camu camu powder?!
When we take large doses of vitamin c as ascorbic acid we are correcting a genetic defect similar to the way a MTHFR mutated individual supplements folate rather than folic acid. A simple search of the GLO gene will turn up a world of information.
Scientific literature showing the miraculous benefits and healing powers of vitamin c are all done using ascorbic acid. Whole food c is rarely, if ever, used during studies. Because it is not what primates once produced and it is not as safe as ascorbic acid.
Ascorbic acid is simple and pure. It does not have contaminants like GMO’s. There’s is no lethal dose of ascorbic acid making it safer than water. With large doses of ascorbic acid we correct a mutation that left us vulnerable to a toxic environment. We correct the GLO gene mutation.

Pregnancy & Vitamin c
The ordeal of labour in the case of vitamin C pregnancies is definitely shorter and less painful. With women having first babies, the average time in labour is approximately five to six hours, compared to non-vitamin C deliveries of around 15 to 16 hours.The megadoses cut the time to less than half. The birth canal of the vitamin C mother is more elastic. We find therefore a markedly reduced incidence of laceration and tearing during the delivery. The incidence of striae - the stretch marks - is markedly reduced, too. We also find the mother returns to normal much more rapidly. That means less time in the hospital." -Dr. William Saccoman
"I would estimate that more than 500 patients of mine have been put on the big doses of vitamin C. What I see as a result is shorter labour, sometimes lasting little more than an hour. Rarely do I see stretch marks. In fact, I can't remember the last time. I have seen no adverse reactions to the vitamin C and never a deformed baby when the mother was on this program. The babies are healthy pink and squalling.” - Dr. Robert Scott
"There isn't much doubt about it," he says. "The incidence of long labours, stress during labour, retained placentas, and other normal complications are reduced quite considerably. A labour you might expect to take 24 hours would take 12 or 15. Some are over in three or four hours." -Dr. Archie Kalokerinos
"The vitamin C babies were marvellous. And what was often so amazing is that many of the mothers I worked with were poverty-level individuals. A large number of them were alcoholics who ate very poorly and no matter how hard I tried I couldn't correct this problem. Nevertheless, what I found was that by supplementing them with vitamin C, they actually produced babies that were healthier than a lot of the newborns in the general community. And, as the babies were growing, they were showing fewer signs of recurrent infections and problems in infancy than other babies. To me, this has always been quite incredible. Even if we couldn't correct the diet, just the simple supplementation was doing so much good.” -Dr. Kalokerinos

There has never been a documented situation in which vitamin C has been unable to neutralize/kill
any virus against which it has been tested. Along with various applications of ozone, I don't believe
there is a reason to fear "another" virus, as they as have the same basic pathophysiology.
Clinically, no acute viral infection in animals or humans has failed to resolve with properly applied
vitamin C. However, chronic infections are not always so obliging.
We now have even more tools to rapidly resolve any acute and rapidly progressing viral infection.
I am not aware of any viral syndrome that does not start or is not strongly supported by ongoing viral
replication in the naso- and oropharynx. When appropriate agents are nebulized and this viral
presence is quickly eliminated, the rest of the body "mops up" quite nicely the rest of the viral presence.
The worst viral infections have to be continually fed and sustained by the viral growth in the pharynx.
This is covered more extensively in an article I recently wrote:
Incidentally, vitamin C has been shown to resolve Ebola, Zika, and Chikagunya viruses, sometimes along with
I'm sure any day a new vaccine will appear...and then everything will be fine (super sarcasm!!)
