Two Step Vitamin C Flush: Protocol and Benefits

Thousands of people have been treated with high doses of vitamin C. The effects of this substance when used in large amounts alters the course of many diseases.

Stressful conditions greatly increases utilization of vitamin C. Ascorbate excreted in the urine drops markedly with stresses of any magnitude unless vitamin C is provided in large amounts. For example, the amount of ascorbic acid, which can be taken orally without causing diarrhea when a person is ill is sometimes over 10x the amount he would tolerate if well. This increased bowel tolerance indicates the unsuspected magnitude of the potential use that the body has for ascorbate under stressful conditions.

Step One

First, you must use a non-liposomal vitamin C  powder. Reason being, liposomal vitamin C bypasses the absorption barriers in your digestive system and enters your blood. This efficiency actually hinders your vitamin C flush therefore we recommend a traditional form of vitamin C.

Step Two

Start on an empty stomach before putting new food in “front” of the vitamin C in the GI tract, or severe cramping and gut pressure can develop. Allow yourself the full day to finish the flush however most people reach the point of vitamin C saturation within a few hours. Mix 2 to 4 grams of sodium ascorbate powder (1/2 to 1 level teaspoon) in water or juice every hour or so until you get a loose watery stool.

A few people will not tolerate more than 1 to 2 grams, most will flush between 6 to 12 grams, a few individuals will need 20 to 40 grams (those with illnesses), and occasional individuals cannot reach a flush dose.

Once a flush dose is determined, most individuals can then take that same dose in divided portions throughout the day without flushing, reaching a maximal daily tolerated dose of “regular” vitamin C.


How much Vitamin C do I need?


The National Institutes of Health (NIH) have established a common standard for “the average daily level of intake sufficient to meet the nutrient requirements of nearly all (97%-98%) healthy individuals.” This NIH Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) for vitamin C is


Vitamin C (Ascorbic acid)


Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that your body doesn’t store it. We have to get what we need from food, including citrus fruits, broccoli, and tomatoes. Leftover amounts of the vitamin leave the body through the urine. That means you need a continuous supply of vitamin C in your diet.

One of the foremost authorities on Vitamin C is board certified Cardiologist, Dr. Thomas E. Levy. Dr. Levy has appeared on numerous television shows and radio programs discussing the immense benefits of high doses of vitamin C. He has written several books on the subject and continues to lecture at universities and international conferences. This is what Dr. Levy says about the recommended dosage of vitamin C.
