Meet Dr. Rhonda Patrick
Dr. Patrick deserves an entire post unto herself. She is amazing!
The following video, a bit long at 1:19:10, stands as an excellent
example of clear, science-backed exposition on this important
nutrient, Vitamin C. Absolutely outstanding work! I very much
admire her clear-headed, objective coverage of Vitamin C!
Vitamin C With Dr. Rhonda Patrick
BTW I can no longer figure out how to insert a video into a post
in Scot's Forums- so I did it as a link above.
Dr. Patrick is not going to get herself thrown off of
YouTube. What she says is clearly, verifiably true and backed
by mainstream research. And if you start this video, I bet she
soon has you hooked- if you care at all about the subject.
My main takeaway, right at the outset- oral vs. IV vitamin C
are essentially entirely different animals. I do have two strong
articles of faith, personally: (1.) Oral supplementation at well
above the skimpy RDA amounts is a very good idea, and
(2.) High dose IV Vitamin C is going to be verified in due time
through scientific studies to be an extremely potent and
effective intervention for critically ill patients! Meanwhile,
reports from the field tell of some flat out amazing recoveries
with very marginal, poor prognosis patients.
Oh, OK- even my eyes were glazing over towards the end of
her talk, but OTOH there were so many moments where she
presented some really consequential results. Around 53:00
to 55:30 she covers how high dose IV C greatly improved
outcomes with some very sick patients (sepsis).
