Stay healthy, take Vitamin D

Especially if you happen to be worried about Covid-19 or Covid-19+:

Stop waiting for a miracle drug: A Boston University doctor says a sufficient amount of vitamin D can cut the risk of catching coronavirus by 54%.

“People have been looking for the magic drug or waiting for the vaccine and not looking for something this simple,” said Dr. Michael Holick, professor of medicine, physiology and biophysics at Boston University School of Medicine.

Holick and his colleagues studied blood samples from Quest Diagnostics of more than 190,000 Americans from all 50 states and found that those who had deficient levels of vitamin D had 54% higher COVID positivity compared to those with adequate levels of vitamin D in the blood.

The risk of getting coronavirus continued to decline as vitamin D levels increased, the study, published in the Public Library of Science One peer-reviewed journal shows.

“The higher your vitamin D status, lower was your risk,” Holick said.

I upgraded from my daily Vitamin C regime to one that included D, Zinc, and D+K2 about a year ago. Forget Covid. I haven't even had a cold since.

Great advice!

Here's a bucketload of studies that confirm what VD says...

Best dose for a latitude like France/UK in the winter seems to be about 2-3000 IU/day.

Also WHO seems on track to recommend ivermectin for treatment. That'll probably take them 2-3 months though.

Blogger drsmith48167 December 28, 2020 11:34 AM  

Funny this is mentioned; two years ago during routine yearly physical, my doctor ordered the usual blood tests - but also included a check for vitamin D, something he had not done in the prior nearly 20 years I had been seeing him. I was below recommend levels, so he told me to start taking it, and I have been for over 2 years now,


Seems like he knew something most doctor’s don’t. He always struck me as a standup guy, too - now I know why.

If you're not following Jon Rappoport, Joe Mercola, Bill Sardi for Corona advice - you're at the mercy of Fauciville! DaLimbraw Library has a fair collection for starters. Lew Rockwell will often post their latest articles - it's a matter of educating yourself continuously.
Be aware also, Vitamin D blood tests are not part of normal medical practice yet. The same is true for Medicare - your doctor has to use a special code for Medicare payment.
For the most part, disease prevention is not part of standard medical practice - they're mostly vaccine promoters and pill dispensers.
I have personally found that if a doctor will listen to you and answer your questions, you have a keeper - if not, find another.

Wife and I swear by a product named Zicam for our zinc supplement, it being a nasal swab thingy.

The whole Corona-Chan thing looks more and more like a cult with evil little clowns like Fauci just making things up to see his idiot believers just degrade themselves. On the expansive fitness trails near my home the people I see wearing their idiot masks while out on them walking, running or biking all seem to be the sexless losers of our society and the masks give them "status" or something.

The relationship is even causative, not just a correlation.
In a randomly controlled study in already admitted COVID patients, getting (plenty of) Vitamin D reduced the odds of going to ICU by 97%:

Although the dose matters; standard RDA is not enough according to these doctors:

Good thing to know, but the actual number would be cutting the risk by 35%.

If the risk is 54% higher with insufficient vitamin D, that means that the risk is 35% lower with sufficient vitamin D (54/154 X 100%). People tend to forget that the denominators change when taking percentages in different directions.

For all the panic mode spirals I hear from people genuinely concerned with catching the coof, I almost never hear anyone focusing on staying healthy and fit so they never get the illness to begin with. The thousands (or more) diseases our immune systems fight off in a given year successfully makes most vaccines or "miracles drugs" look like a joke.

The supplements you mentioned along with exercise, not stressing the hell out about everything (shutting off the TV will help tremendously with that) eating clean food will do infinitely more than "masking up, social distancing, and getting vaccinated."

Indeed. The single best piece of advice the evil scum Fauci and the CDC could have given Americans in February was: Take more Vitamin D.

Vitamin D (+ Zinc) works by interfering with any virus's ability to enter a cell, infecting it and trying to use the cell for replication!

Great stuff. Taiwanese study shows their low rate of infection, 5% of US rate, is attributed to high levels of "D" in their blood!

Also recommend taking quercetin, which also aids in the interference with cell penetration. I take that with Vitamin C in a compound.

Yep, vitamin D is probably the most important thing for prevention. I take it along the other stuff Vox mentioned on a semi-regular basis, and when I had covid, I had a mild fever for a day. I would have gone with no symptoms if I had actually slept more than four or five hours per night at that time.

Blogger Rory December 28, 2020 12:25 PM  

Yes, Yes, and more yes! - Live in North Dakota - we don't get much sun in the fall/winter/spring - have been doing Vit D for a long time. then covid hit and maintained Vitamin D - even purchasing some 50,000 units (yes 50 K) Vitamin D for if/when covid came to town (in my house).

Low and behold got it - I'm on immuno suppressant drugs for UC, and had also been taking VIT C, D, others, and Quercetin which acts as HydroxyChloroquine lite...

Symptoms came out as a mild cold, some sniffles, was way tired out, then when no smell/taste occurred I knew it - got tested, did the quarantine thing and got better. during the time I took my 'bazooka' Vitamin D (50,000 units)morning and night.

Wife tested positive also - yet only symptom was being tired.

BE. SURE. TO. DRINK. YOUR. OVALTINE (vitamin D - poor reference to a favorite Christmas movie...)

I’ve taken D, C, and Zinc for some time (since before COVID) and haven’t had any symptoms of any sickness since, even having been in ICUs with COVID patients and around non-hospital patients who “tested positive.” It’s almost like God knew what he was doing when He designed the human immune system.

Blogger 7916 December 28, 2020 12:33 PM  

MATH+ or the iMATH protocol if you are really at risk. We've been using the MATH+ prophylactic since April, our family and both sets of parents. Amazon has a Quercitin-Zinc combo pill that fulfills the requirements and makes it easy. Mixing powdered quercitin and zinc drops can get messy.

If you can get ivermectin it's good to have some on hand. There are convenient PDF's available on both protocols.

And it's amazingly cheap. Guess why the information has been suppressed so long?

Blogger Nate December 28, 2020 12:34 PM  

it doesn't just drastically reduce your chances of getting sick... it also makes it far more likely that your symptoms will be milder and you will recover faster. Covid does not like zinc.

Yes, and DRs say that the best way to absorb vitamin D is the sun. Hopefully some commenters will chime in to support this claim. All I know is, I tried to get some 30 mins of it every day we had sun here in New England this year, and have had no cold symptoms.

Blogger Elder Son December 28, 2020 12:40 PM  

I've been supposedly exposed to the tested PCR positive Cooties CASES! 16 times now. The last one was just recent as a friend of mine got sick, had a hard time breathing, had low oxygen level, and was hospitalized for 5 days. He was released from the hospital Christmas eve. They had him on Oxygen, laying on his stomach, steroids, antibiotics, and vitamins C, D3, and Zinc.

I've been taking these vitamins since March, with a healthy swig of Fever Tree Tonic Water with natural quinine. I tried to tell him months ago to take these vitamins, now he is a believer and has his whole family taking them.

Of the 16 I have been exposed to, 12 didn't know they had it until they got tested, 3 got the sniffles and got tested, and then my friend who was the only one who got sick enough to be hospitalized. Note that he had recently had chemotherapy, and is diabetic.

The steroids he was on I understand, although they are still debating its usefulness. The antibiotics doesn't cure viruses, they kill bacteria as, COVID might, in turn, cause excessive mucus production in the lungs that leads to the development of a bacterial pneumonia.

Note that, pre-COVID days, one would say, the Influenza Virus might, in turn, cause excessive mucus production in the lungs that leads to the development of a bacterial pneumonia. Which is what my Grandmother died of back in 1995 after contacting the Influenza Virus.

Don't let anyone tell you that these Corona-Cooties symptoms are one of a kind or never before seen. If one were to dig enough into the CDC website, you would find that these symptoms, depending on the severity of minor, moderate, and severe, are the same symptoms you would find with the Influenza. Such as "COVID-Toe", "COVID-Pink Eye" and "COVID loss of smell and taste".

Also, has anyone isolated "The Virus" in a whole, purified, and isolated state, rather than bits and pieces in a soup dish? Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available..., CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, page 39. Anyhow, the PCR test is the pandemic. And the is no Flu. The Corona-Cooties is a jealous virus, and there shall be no viruses before it.

For the people keeping score in all the ways Japan’s extant cultural diet happens to cover items we are slowly learning help with covid:

* They consume almost 2000mg of matcha a day (enough for several hundred mg of EGCg—a therapeutic dose of a powerful zinc ionophore)

* 80% of them eat natto regularly. It has already been observed that in the areas of high natto consumption there have been zero (with a 0) deaths due to covid in Japan. Natto is high in vitamin D and K.

Blogger Solon December 28, 2020 12:59 PM  

Our immune systems are remarkably robust and can fight off almost anything as long as we dont overload them by stuffing our bodies full of toxins (junk food, alcohol/drugs, sugar, and so on).

Get a good amount of sleep, pray/meditate daily to reduce stress, avoid poisons (electromagnetic radiation is a VERY potent poison; get away from electronics for a few hours every day), take vitamins and minerals, drink lots of well-oxygenated water, and you'll never have to fear sickness.

And for God's sake, avoid sin where you can. Soul sickness is a VERY real thing, as are demons, and anyone who says otherwise is a liar as far as I'm concerned.

The commonly accepted thought on "cold and flu season" is that disease spreads easier because people are confined indoors in close proximity. Based on this, it appears it might actually be about how much sunlight people are getting.

Blogger evilfranklin December 28, 2020 1:01 PM  

For decades, if not the last 100+ years, medical science has been advocating for the intake of foods and sunshine to fight the onset of diseases of all kinds. Just reading the ingredients of the foods of which one partakes provides an indication of the vitamins and minerals either naturally occurring or added to any given product. Reading a book about foraging often informs us of the advantages of local plants that one may grow or that exist around us.
Ah, but then politics becomes involved and the rules are changed when a particular course is desired.
In November 1997 the rules were changed regarding weight. The standards were changed to claim that more and more people were over weight or obese. In November 2020 the W.H.O. changed it view of "herd immunity". Where once procedures to enhance "herd immunity" were advocated as of Nov. 2020 it is only by the use of pharmaceutically provided vaccines can we defeat the dreaded Covid-19 or any other cold or flu that may be around the corner.
If it weren't for politicians the human race would have died off thousands of years ago.

While it's pretty hard to take too much Vitamin D it's wise to check your blood levels of both it and calcium, the latter shoots up dangerously in hypercalcemia if you're getting way too much.

One reason to check is that you might have a genetic issue, or get a bad batch of supplements, the Merck Manual says "In adults, taking 1250 mcg (50,000 units)/day for several months can cause toxicity." That's five to ten times the normal maximums for supplementation.

I used some prick you finger put blood on paper and mail it in tests, and watched mine go from too low before I started, to medium, to about right, and my calcium levels done by conventional blood work remained fine. And along with our host, have not gotten a cold since then.

Blogger Damelon Brinn December 28, 2020 1:11 PM  

I got a fever back in the spring that quickly jumped over 100. I started taking a full day's dose of D3, C, and zinc every hour, and climbed under about a dozen blankets. Broke the fever in several hours and felt fine afterwards. I still don't know whether it was the covids or an ordinary cold or flu, but either way it did the trick. Seems like a good regular regimen at normal doses.

Most white people probably need extra D anyway, unless they're outdoors in sunny weather and don't coat themselves with sunblock.

Blogger Johnny December 28, 2020 1:15 PM  

What dosages are safe? A common high dose for D3 is 5000 units. Don't know about C, some people take really a lot. Something to do is to read the label, and don't forget to note how many pills you have to take. Some of these herbal remedy companies will way under dose you. And not all companies are reliable. The area is not routinely regulated.

Blogger spacehabitats December 28, 2020 1:17 PM  

Amen to this regimen. Combine this with widespread use of ivermectin for prophylaxis and treatment and we really wouldn't even need a vaccine. In any event, even though my wife and I recentl contracted Covid (my immune system was weakened from cancer treatment) and the even more recent death of my 94 year old mother to the disease, I am convinced that we should have this virus on the ropes. If only the MSM and big tech would start promoting the correct strategies instead of suppressing them.

Some people, especially older people, have reduced vitamin D digestability.

So if you're low in the vitamin D test, you're supposed to take the 50,000 IU pill once a week to get past that lower digestive/accepting capability. You can get the 50,000 IU vitamin D pill online easily.

That's once a week, not once a day. Once you get into the proper vitamin D levels again, then you can switch down to the lower dose once a day.

For the people smug about already getting some sun, if it's just your face and maybe forearms in winter that's not enough.
It's nothing magic about sunlight - it has to be on enough exposed skin long enough.
Again, more needed if darker skin or overweight*.

Look into vitamin K2 to go with the D.
D by itself increases calcium absorptulion and availability, but K2 endures the extra calcium you're getting goes to bones and teeth rather than hardening your arteries.

Also do not confuse K2 w regular K (actually K1) which helps clotting.
If you're on a blood thinner look fora K2 NOT in combination w K1.

Note, you can't generate much Vitamin D from the sun if the sun isn't at least 45 degrees above the horizon, because UVB radiation doesn't penetrate the atmosphere at oblique angles. So basically, anyone north of Florida can't create Vitamin D in December and January, even at high noon. Supplementation is necessary in the winter.

Blacks and Mestizos with dark skin do not create Vitamin D as effectively as whites. This is likely the reason why Covid hits dark-skinned races in northern climates much harder.

Blogger Other Josh December 28, 2020 1:44 PM  

Vitamin D - If you're a dude, take 3,000 - 5,000 IU a day. If your a chick, take 2,000 - 4,000 IU a day. In the summer, if you're getting out in the sunlight alot, take less. In the winter, take full dose.
Zinc - I supplement 20 - 30 mg a day.
Vitamin C - Supplement at least 500 mg a day.
Vitamin B12 - You don't need much! But, supplement a little. Great for energy and nerve/reflex health.

What to avoid is almost as important as what helps. Avoid Nsaids including aspirin as the increase both the likelihood of getting Covid, and the intensity of how bad it will get. Yet the worst is certain BP meds like 'lisinopril' or other ACE inhibitors, as these increase the chances of not only getting Covid, but also getting a harsh case of it. So pain killers and BP/heart med are bad for exposer is another reason why old people/sick people = fatal.

Also, has anyone isolated "The Virus" in a whole, purified, and isolated state, rather than bits and pieces in a soup dish? Since no quantified virus isolates of the 2019-nCoV are currently available..., CDC 2019-Novel Coronavirus (2019-nCoV) Real-Time RT-PCR Diagnostic Panel, page 39.

Yes, that awful CDC test developed starting on ... well, this is the CDC so I wouldn't be surprised if they waited until the weekday of Monday the 13th of January, sequences from the PRC were first published on Western computer repositories on the 10th, the first without authorization and of course followed by punishment.

The CDC is perhaps not entirely useless, they got their first specimen to culture from on the 20th, had enough to start shipping it out on the 2nd of February. That requires work in a BSL-3 lab, something people doing diagnostics avoid as much as practical, and this was used by the FDA until the end of February to help prevent anyone else in the US from developing a test and getting the necessary Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) to market it.

This is, after all, most likely a gain of function experiment that escaped from the Wuhan Institute of Virology, which has the PRC's first publicly known BSL-4 lab. Go here if you want some of the US government's finest Corona-chan isolates.

The key feature of vitamin D is that you cannot eat enough in the north, say north of 30 degrees latitude. Everything else can be obtained with a varied diet, with supplements to make sure.

Worth saying that even regardless of Covid, you're probably indoors more because of the lockdowns, so supplementing Vitamin D is probably advisable.

Yes, there's some dietary D, but it's hard to eat enough unless you design a diet just around vitamin D.

If you have relatives or friends who won't accept the Covid features of D, then just ask them how much sunshine they've had compared to a normal year.

Even just 1000 IU per day will prevent deficiency diseases.

You can overdose on Vitamin D, but you need to be up to about 60,000 IU per day for months - it's not something to worry about unless you're being a complete idiot.

@12 "And yes, fat people are typically Vitamin D deficient and need more to supplement."

Sorry, wee sperg: fat cells preferentially sequester vitamin D, so if you are deficient and wish to begin to repair that deficiency, it will take longer. You must 'fill up' your fat cells before you can achieve an adequate serum (blood) level of D. However, once you 'get filled up,' the level will remain where it should, so long as you continue to supplement.

Adequate serum levels, according to "Dr. Sunshine," the brilliant Dr Holick, are: minimum 30 ng/ml, however 40-60 ng/ml is ideal. Max 100. Over 150-200 may be dangerous.

Holick recommends supplementing 5000-6000 IU of vitamin D every day no matter the season, plus careful sun exposure. It's inexpensive; and buy Vitamin D3. D2 will work, but you require more of it to reach the levels D3 will get you to better/quicker. Vitamin K2 -- which is dangerous in larger-than-recommended doses -- helps metabolize the D.

Depends on a lot of factors, like how much sun you get, how old you are, if you're already deficient, etc. For myself, I take 5,000 IU / day during winter here in the PNW. I've been taking 10,000 IU / day since my nephew (who's staying with us for the holidays) tested positive for the Kung Flu. I'll go back to 5,000 / day after the quarantine period. Some references will say 10,000 is too much, others that our bodies can make far more than that in the middle of summer if we're outside. Don't know, but I'm comfortable with 5k boosted to 10k on occasion.

Just make sure it's D3. That's the type our bodies make.

And do it again, and again. There is no evidence of that anywhere. Well, except for "bits and pieces" we think is "The Virus". For instance, I was reading an article a few weeks ago about "The Virus" and infertility. It literally stated that they found "bits and pieces" of "The Virus" in the testes. Well, where in the hell is the whole, purified, unadulterated, and in a isolated state virus that they removed from the test subject?

And I keep running into things like this:

Euro Surveill 2020 Jan - Detection of 2019 novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV) by real-time RT-PCR:

Aim: We aimed to develop and deploy robust diagnostic methodology for use in public health laboratory settings without having virus material available.

Anyhow, I'm not an expert in all the terminology used, for instance in the link you provided, "Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome Coronavirus 2 from Patient with Coronavirus Disease, United States." What I didn't see in the article, is whole, purified, unadulterated, and in a isolated state, virus.

And here is another thing, speaking of the CDC. We have WHO telling us back in Jun 8, 2020 that transmission of the "The Virus" by people who aren’t showing symptoms is very rare.

Just recently, the CDC updated saying - Public health recommendations have been update to accommodate new scientific evidence: Growing evidence of transmission risk from infected people without symptoms.

which means a multivitamin with calcium and magnesium oxide is only delivering calcium. Calcium without magnesium leads to arterial calcification, which leads to heart disease. Calcium without magnesium is especially bad for anyone with atrial fibrillation.

The good multivitamins with organic magnesium, Vitamins D and K2 are available online, and sometimes in supplement stores. Unfortunately, a majority of the common brands have magnesium oxide, so there may not any good multivitamins in a typical supermarket or pharmacy.

With Vitamin D, everybody's a little different and it makes a difference which type is taken. About a year ago my physician switched me from D2 to D3 but kept the weekly dosage the same, and that nearly doubled the amount in the next blood test (in the US, D2 is the one the pharmacy will dispense if prescribed).

I take 10000 IU per day, sometimes 2x to 5x that if I feel something coming on since I used to habitually come down with a cold that would linger all winter. That hasn't happened since the doc started monitoring Vitamin D and adding in the Zinc made this year's cold so mild nobody even caught on since the constant cough was absent.

Yes. Good source. The 0.2 mg/kg dose for a human ends up being the same as the dose per pound for the horse paste. I started with the horse paste waiting for the Indian drugs. Measuring the dosage is a little sloppy with the horse paste.

In the winterless north, it's pretty nice. Tropical no, but it never gets cold and if i could move somewhere without thinking of politics it would be a place that stays between 60 and 80 year round

Supplement smart. Remember, zinc completes with copper in your body and both are necessary. Zinc is involved in something like 300 processes, but copper is necessary for the formation of red blood cells. If you overdo it for too long, you might find yourself anemic. Copper is naturally present in apricots and some seafood.

I had my Vit D tested this past June. I was supplementing with 3000 units a day, and my level was 47. That's good. I expect it is down some since the warm sunny days are gone, but I am now taking 5000/day, until I can get my 30 minutes of shorts and t-shirt exposure which should start in late April.


I'm 6-1 and 250 pounds, so your mileage might vary.

Also, look at your diet. Rich sources of things that would be helpful if you do contract COVID or some other bug are found in avocados, blueberries, walnuts, almonds, sweet potatoes and salmon.

I've been taking 3000 to 4000 UI per day since about april.
Anyone knows is that'd be enough to bring my blood vitamin D levels to "healthy" levels? Some websites recommend starting with a "loading up" phase where you take about 50000 UI over the course of a week, then "maintaining" with 3000 to 4000 UIs.

Exactly. Koch's postulates have not been fulfilled:
"1. The bacteria must be present in every case of the disease.
2. The bacteria must be isolated from the host with the disease and grown in pure culture.
3. The specific disease must be reproduced when a pure culture of the bacteria is inoculated into a healthy susceptible host.
4. The bacteria must be recoverable from the experimentally infected host."

So just another piece of disinformation from 91. Thatwouldbetelling...

Blogger Balazs Varga December 29, 2020 5:13 AM  

This is very solid advice and has been mirrored by some Hungarian medical outlets.

They did write that A, K vitamins and magnesium helps with the vitamin D retention too. Zinc and vitamin C is great too.

@131 Elder Son:

@91 Well, where in the hell is the whole, purified, unadulterated, and in a isolated state virus that they removed from the test subject?

Only in BSL-3 labs. If you can't get enough grant money to send cultures out to those labs, which are few in number and this year severely booked up for really important work, you use RT-PCR tests which indeed only check for a couple of small bits of the virus, don't tell you if they're from viable viruses or viral debris that are still being cleared from the body. But for the first investigation of testes, finding those bits six months after the patient otherwise is believed to have recovered is useful data. More useful is the recent PRC study which found serious damage in the testes of cadavers.

Bacteria != viruses. In 1884 when Koch's postulates were formulated, a filter good enough to not pass bacteria was developed, and eight years later the tobacco mosaic virus was sort of discovered, but was thought to be a toxin and that was not followed up, thanks to it not following the germ theory of disease as it was back then. It took another six years for a scientist to become convinced there was a new infectious agent involved, although he thought it was a liquid. Etc.

Since viruses are obligate parasites, you have to modify Koch's postulates, which, you know, use that word "bacteria." Furthermore, the West now believes its unethical to "challenge" humans with a lethal pathogen for which there's no prevention or reliable cure (the U.K. and maybe the Dutch are planning to do it to people who've gotten a vaccine), so we've had to use animal "models" to satisfy the modified postulates, which we've of course done.

Which international pharmacies? That's nice for you to know, not nice for me to find out. Which ones- really, please, recommendations? I mean, I don't know if the white powder in the tablet is lead scraped off a pipe, or zinc, or what.

Personally, I'd like to know how to get my hands on some of the Indian blister pacs, just to keep around at home for everyone.

More like because we're too wimpy to try to give it to condemned prisoners (this probably isn't true in the PRC, but I suspect they're not going to be openly publishing such research). Unlike Corona-chan, there are no good animal models for pure human HIV, they can get infected, but don't elicit the same acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS), unless you create chimeric viruses using for example simian immunodeficiency virus (SIV). So, yes, Koch's Postulates as adjusted for viruses have not been satisfied for HIV.

But weird body fluid transmitted immune system targeting retrovirus for which there are no cures or vaccines are very much not coronaviruses, and rhesus macaque monkeys are a favorite albeit expensive animal model for SARS-CoV-2. Any search on the obvious keywords will find lots of links, I found this one to be particularly interesting, granted it's from the PRC, but it claims it's worse in older monkeys....

@133 "Add Magnesium to the list."

Be slow and careful adding magnesium orally... going t0o fast will loosen your bowels rather dramatically. Easier/less fraught way to add it is using "magnesium oil" -- it's not oil, just feels oily. And sometimes, a bit itchy till your skin gets used to it!

"Magnesium oil is made from a mixture of magnesium chloride flakes and water. When these two substances are combined, the resulting liquid has an oily feel, but isn't technically an oil."


Magnesium flakes are *extremely* cheap. Like ~$20 for 3-4 pounds: you do not need 3 pounds, but it keeps. Put it in an lidded jar to store, if you buy a bag.

Mix 50/50 with water to make "magnesium oil"; way cheaper then buying it made. Spray it on and/or rub it in.

Post-workout, put 1 or 2 cups into your bath water (warm, not hot) and soak for 20 minutes. Way fewer, if any, aches and pains. If you haven't the 20 min., spray it on and rub in where you're sore.

There are generally no adverse bowel reactions to transdermal magnesium, and you can 'fill-up' easily.

@121 "2000mg a day of C (liposomal is best if you can get it)"

You can make it at home WAY cheaper! Mild PiTA, but easily do-able once you lay in the supplies. I can make about 2-3 C at a time, which lasts about 3-5 days. Controlling factor is the size of ultra-sonic 'cleaner' I use for the 'injection of C' into the liposome powder. The cleaner vibrates the C suspended in water INTO a liposomal (fat) 'ball.'

Why? C is only water soluable. C in the blood is 'in water' and water does not easily cross the cell barriers INTO the cell, where you want the C! Liposomal C (= FAT balls, surrounding the C) easily crosses the cell walls as designed!

All this stuff is available through Amazon: do your research there and then go buy direct from the MFG -- teeny 'hit' to the evil ones by buying elsewhere:

Ingredients:
1. sunflower-based phosphotylserine powder (powder, not granules)
2. pure ascorbic acid ('vitamin C') powder
3. bought or made distilled water.

Gear:
1. 1-and 4-cup measuring cup(s)
2. a mixer: immersion type is easiest
3. ultra-sonic cleaner: I bought this: Kendal Commercial Grade 220 Watts 3 Liters Ultrasonic Cleaner HB-23MHT because the smaller one required way-too-frequent making
4. I use two 600ml borosilicate beakers IN the cleaner -- some folks just pour the mix directly into the cleaner; but mine is VERY hard to clean and the beakers don't interfere with the 'sonicking.' Might be making the conversion longer to do, but beats cleaning the u.sonic!
5. A jar with a top for shake-mixing the ascorbic acic into suspension in distilled water. The 4-C measuring cup is for mixing with the immersion mixer the phospho. powder into the water. The two mixes are done separately, then joined.

Process:
1. Add 1C of distilled water to the jar. Measure 2 TBL (tablespoons) of ascorbic into the jar. Close tight and shake multiple times to get the "C" into suspension. I usually end up giving it a 20-second 'shot' in the microwave to heat the water a bit. Too hot apparently damages the C. You want it nearly all in suspension.
2. Add 2C distilled water to the larger measuring cup. Add 3 TBL of the lecithin. Stir a little, then cover and put in the fridge for an hour or so: not necessary but seems to speed the process slightly. Take it out, and use the immersion mixer to mix it until completely suspended.
3. Add the mostly suspended C to that 4C cup and stir.
4. Put cold water in the u.s. cleaner; keep an eye on the 'fill-to' line; don't overfill, esp. when you put the beakers in. Split the mixed suspension into the two beakers and set them into the cleaner. You'll need to run the cleaner on and off for about an hour.
Some cleaners don't LIKE that much hard labor, so let the stuff 'set' between sonickings, so the machine cools down. Also, the sonic will heat the water, so you'll want to add ice cubes periodically, which includes dipping out enough now-warm water to avoid over-filling the cleaner.

Generally accepted 'clue to done' is when the foam on top of the mixed liquid is all gone. I'm dubious, so I tend to do it longer.

Store in the fridge. Drink ~1/2C every day. It's very ... "C" sharp; like a lemon without the lemony taste. So, slug it, if you hate it. I like it, but then, I used to bite Vit C tablets in half and suck on them.

I ordered off of chooserxdeal.com. They knew of my mail address as I had ordered something else many many years ago! So at least I thought my CC number was reasonably safe. So I ordered the ivermectin pills. 6mg x 30 for $99 plus shipping. Dec 12 order still in Singapore.

Covid slowed passenger flights hence shipping also so they say. Fleet Farm will do until it arrives. Hope this helps.

Their phone number is 1 646 760 5383 which is the same across a few web sites. MY debit card was charged by dream formulations Pensacola FL. My tracking number shows my order shipping out of Singapore.

Many years ago I ordered from "CanadaPharmacy" and received a brown package from India.

Someone asked which source was good for Ivermectin from India. I posted a reply and felt funny about it then realized why. These places generate lots of spam email and even phone calls. Among other drugs they sell ED meds. Check your spam email file some time. In normal times my post would be blocked as I posted a web site and phone number and I would be banned from posting again. These are strange times.
