Vitamin D3 Supplements

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

I’ve used these vitamin D supplements. The one I like the most is Michael’s Naturopathic, as it is sublingual (enhancing absorption for those of us with damaged gut lining or absorption issues, and it has a cofactor vitamin K2.

If you take vitamin D3, you should take vitamin A and vitamin K along with it otherwise D alone is less effective.

Vitamin C Supplements

Thursday, January 6th, 2011

These are your choices with vitamin C:

  1. The typical Vitamin C (i.e. Ascorbic Acid)
  2. PureWay C (metabolic C)
  3. A Vitamin C-500 complex with Bioflavonoids (Now foods)
  4. Buffered vitamin C or  “Magnesium Ascorbate” (stomach friendly form of vit C) from Now Foods or Swanson vitamins:Vitamin C powder as Magnesium Ascorbate (not Ascorbic Acid)

    http://www.iherb.com/Now-Foods-Magnesium-Ascorbate-8-oz-227-g/676?at=0&rcode=ZAG620

    “A super C source that’s gentle on the stomach! Swanson Buffered C features vitamin C that’s bonded to calcium through a special process that neutralizes the vitamin’s acidity, making it gentler on the stomach, even at high intakes.”

  5. Vitamin C (oil soluble form), Vitamin C (oil-soluble ascorbyl palmitate) http://www.vitacost.com/NSI-Ascorbyl-Palmitate

An idea: I have tried the first 3 and soon will be using the Magnesium Ascorbate (it is easier to absorb and has no negative effects on the GI)

If you want more vitamin C consider this idea: Take Vitamin C 1000 mg of buffered (magnesium ascorbate) 3 times/day  along with one oil-soluble C (ascorbyl palmitate) (3000mg/day total).

Vitamin C provides Superb free-radical protection

Life-Changing and Fantastic for MCS March 26, 2009
From Colorado
I started using this last spring. It changed my life in connection with addressing MCS symptoms. First, it gave me more energy; it eliminated pain; and started healing areas of former traumas. My chemical sensitivities also reduced. There was a herx reaction with it, but I just kept taking in and that subsided by two weeks and was gone totally after a month.
