Vitamin C mega-dosage is the consumption (or injection) of vitamin C (ascorbate) in doses comparable to the amounts produced by the livers of most other mammals and well beyond the current Dietary Reference Intake. Some practitioners of vitamin C mega dose therapy may consume up to 20 grams per day, depending on their bowel tolerance, under the belief that it will lead to optimal health or healing of various conditions.
The dosage is usually divided and consumed in portions over the day. IVs of 50 or 100 grams per day are advocated by some physicians for therapy of certain conditions, poisonings, and recovery from trauma. People who practice vitamin C mega dosage may consume many vitamin C pills throughout each day or dissolve pure vitamin C crystals in water or juice and drink it throughout the day. Making one’s own liposomal vitamin C is a less expensive option.
