Vitamin C.....
    #366287 - 08/03/01 02:38 PM (15 years, 6 months ago)

I heard someone once saying that takking Vitamin C before muching shrooms enhances the trip somehow. Is this just a myth or is there some evidence to back it up? not just anecdotal evidence.

There are 3 types of people in this world: Those who can count, and those who can not.

that was a pretty widespread rumor, the only way I can rationalize this rumor occuring is someone said that vitamen c helps you from getting burned out afterwards, and someone exxagerated this by saying oh less burn out....MORE FUCKED UP HALLUCINATIONS! yes! its a lie.

Originally no one is deluded.

also, the addition of vit C to shroom tea helps stop the water from turning so blue (prolly caused by oxidation and/or dimerization of the psiloc(yb)in molecules...)
in your body, vit C may help "quench" free radicals(molecular "bad guys")

well i think v c is an anti-oxident, taking any is a waste of $ and Vit c, since it is water soluble vit.. meaning once your body has enough taking more is just gonna get pissed out.

yeah, excess will spill into the urine... you can buy piss testing kits to tell when vit C is in urine sample... but purina monkey & chimp chow give primates with near human weight (chimps, baboons, gorillas) like around 10 gram per day... but for humans, the usda is like 120 mg per day (just enough to prevent obvious signs of scurvy...) dr pauling sez vit C for humans should be several grams per day... if you want to find your optimal range, take a little more vit C every day until you start getting loose stool (diarrhea level) and then back off 10% daily vit C total dose...
and every time you have a ciggie (or a bowl of something good to smoke) or a cuppa coffee, you lose many milligrams of your body's ascorbate molecules, so smokers are gonna need extra...
soooooo....
try a few trips with your vitasmin levels @ baseline, and then try a few trips with your vitamin levels optimized, and see if the trips differ... just as an experiment...
