A vitamin C flush refers to the process of increasing your intake of ascorbic acid until your body flushes out the toxins via your stool. It is a means of determining your daily requirement of vitamin C and the dosage of ascorbic acid supplements you need to take. This is important because vitamin C is neither produced nor stored in humans. For an effective vitamin C flush, use L-ascorbate instead of D- or DL-ascorbate, as the D-form of vitamin C is not absorbed in humans. Effective flush and compliance is found with L-ascorbate buffered, per gram, with the following minerals: 66 mg of potassium, 27 mg of calcium, 11 mg of magnesium and 400 mcg of zinc.

Step 1

Start your vitamin C flush first thing in the morning and on an empty stomach.

Step 2

Add ½ tsp. of fully reduced, buffered mineral L-ascorbate powder to a cup containing 2 oz. of water. Write down the dosage of the vitamin C as 1.5 mg. Allow two minutes for the effervescence to stop and the vitamin to fully dissolve.

Step 3

Drink the dissolved vitamin. Wait for 15 minutes.

Step 4

Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until you are pressed to go to the toilet and pass out a watery stool.
