possible reason for vitamin C effect
    #2404724 - 03/05/04 12:00 AM (14 years, 2 months ago)

i've read a health newsletter and within it was an article relating vitamin C to faster stress recovery.

basically they had 120 participants, half taking a regular dosage of vitamin C for a period of time while the other half took placebos. it was observed that symptoms of stress (such as increased adrenal stimulation) decreased in the participants who took viatmin C. it was concluded that vitamin C can help you recover from stressful situations faster.

perhaps, because of the decrease in stress or the speed of recovery from stress increases, that the trip experience is easier to integrate and you can trip "harder" so to speak.

Be carefull of how you read into certain studies. 120 participants isn't hardly a large enough sample to represent the population. Although this is an interesting study, statistically speaking, there isn't sufficient evidence to supoort the claim that vitamin C will help you recover from a stressfull situation faster then not taking vitamin C. I would like to see sample sizes of the two groups be in the range of 150 - 200 people before I took this study seriously.

As for the effect of vitamin C on a trip... well, I'm really getting tired of this debate. Who cares. Pop a few vitamin C pills before, during, and or after your trip. It's not going to hurt you, and if it makes you think or feel your trip is better because of it, then that's great.


Phase 1... collect underpants... phase 2...??? ... Phase 3 - PROFIT!
