Hi everyone. I was scouring the internets looking for information on Vitamin C. Bashar was saying to do 2000mg - 3000mg Vitamin C 3x/Day and 2000mg - 3000mg MSM 3x/Day. So I have both the MSM and Vitamin C in those weekly tray things all set up and ready to go. Then I looked up Vitamin C again and am reading all kinds of things from it killing your kidneys to curing cancer and everything else.
The big thing that struck my eye on Vitamin C was that there is calcium ascorbate form and sodium ascorbate form. I read to stay away from the Calcium ascorbate but I just took 3000mg ot it with breakfast. I know Bashar is right but I don't know if he ever said one form over another.
I have the MSM and Vitamin C in tablet form.
Long question short; Am I good to go with Vitamin C in Calcium ascorbate form or should I do a different form? If there are any others doing this routine; What forms / products do you recommend?
Thank you very much!
Several months ago, someone pointed out the following on my YouTube channel for that Bashar video:
I replied with the following:
...and then I added...
I will be at a stage within the next few months where I will have exhausted all my current ascorbic acid Vitamin C supply and will be looking for a source of the natural Vitamin C to see what difference it makes.
I can't really offer any more help than that at this stage, I'm afraid. I'm not knowledgeable enough about Vitamin C production to know the differences between the various ascorbate forms, beyond the general information that is already on the internet.
I know that, after a few years, I'm still finding it beneficial to take the mixture though I generally only take it once a day in the mornings...mainly through laziness, since I've noticed that that seems to be just enough for me to keep me at peak levels.
Would be nice if someone could get clarification on this natural-vs-artificial Vitamin C business directly from Bashar.

Ascorbic acid is what most animals make in their own bodies, naturally. Apparently there is a gene mutation in humans, primates, guinea pigs and bats that we don't make it ourselves. So we have to supplement or eat a lot of vitamin C-rich foods. Supplementing is more efficient and plain ascorbic acid works just fine--again, it is the same thing, molecularly, as what the animals naturally produce. Here is Andrew Saul on this: http://www.doctoryourself.com/synthetic.html
I take more C and MSM than Bashar recommended. Currently I am taking 11 to 12 grams of C, along with 5 grams of MSM, two or three times a day.
