    So recently I read a few articles dealing with how extremely high doses of Vitamin C can lead to seriously positive health benefits-

    http://www.naturalnews.com/034591_vitamin_C_mega-dose_healing.html

    Basically, Vitamin C is very good for you in large doses, the problem with most types of Vitamin C pills and powders is that they have a very low bio-absorption rate, somewhere around 20%, which means that if you take a 1000 mg Vit C pill, your body is only going to synthesize about 200 mg of it. Another problem is that common Vit C pills and powders will cause major diarrhea if you take too much of them.

    That's where Liposomal Vitamin C comes in, it has a much higher rate of bioabsorbtion, somewhere around 90% if made correctly, doesn't cause diarrhea, and can be made at home relatively inexpensively, here's what you'll need-

    Um... what? Are we talking theoretical physics here? I'm uncertain...

    I'm skeptical of the efficacy of taking high doses of anything. Just about every vitamin or mineral has someone advocating that high doses of it has amazing health benefits. What would happen to a person who took the recommended high dose of all of them?

    Yeah, usually large doses of anything is a bad idea. Moderation is probably the wisest thing when it comes to ingesting vitamins and minerals. 20 years from now a study will come out that high doses of vitamin C causes cancer.

    There are actually already studies done with cells in culture that suggest large doses of C and E can cause cancer.

    Can you link that study please, it would seemingly be at odds with this paper-

    Yeah but in vitro experiments on potential carcinogens turn up like a million things that increase the risk of cancer.

    i've never heard of high dose vitC being good or bad till now though.

    He was making a Breaking Bad reference implying that you were tricking us in to making Meth. But the show used it in a direct reference to the physicist so you weren't too far off.

    Note that I said suggest. I would use caution regarding taking any supplement in doses much larger than would be found in a normal diet.

    My Grandpa has been going on about high doses of vitamin C for the last 15 years. He routinely takes 3-5 grams a day, but will bump that up to 10-12 grams to deal with any sort of ailment. He hasn't been to a doctor in 30+ years, is 92, and he and my grandmother still live independently. He doesn't take any prescription drugs and has no issues with hearing, vision, or mobility. He's also really into vitamin E and B complex.

    What this paper is saying is that Hexavalent Chromium (Chrom6), which is a chemical compound used in making steel, leather, and various other industrial products, can be activated by Vitamin C, causing mutations and cell breaks, but, this only occurs when Vitamin C and Chrom6 become mixed inside the cell wall, an interaction that is not naturally occurring and had to be induced in a lab setting.

    From the linked paper-

    The vitamin C idea is very old but the science still doesn't back it up.

    'Science' doesn't back up a lot of health-related ideas that they aren't able to patent.

    Come on man. Look at the average supermarket. The supplement/herb aisle is huge. It's a huge industry. My dad buys a lot of this shit. Probably takes like 5 different things a day. It may help, but the science just isn't there. Also, I think a lot of these supplements are sold by big pharma too. Though I agree that some of these supplements, like zinc for example, can help with colds. And are better than mainstrean stuff like sudafed.
