Simply put, Vitamin C is the most amazing creation on God's green Earth. I've been taking it since early November and I'm pretty sure I'm turning into the Wolverine. Since then I have not been sick, not even a little bit.
I'm talking I think I've blown my nose less than 5 times since December. I pretty much used to have chronic colds/allergy symptoms, but not any more. My roomate started to get the flu pretty bad and I shared my C with him and he got better within a couple of days.
My workout recovery is definitly better, soreness is down, and all around I just feel better. I take 2 grams of C every night before I go to sleep. The only side effect is that it gives you some pretty wicked gas- 2 grams is ok, but anything above that will clear a room. I think that could be the shitty CVS brand though.
I just felt compelled to share my experiences with this wonderful creation. Anybody else supplement with a ton of C?
