    Default Magnesium/Vit C powder for histamine

    Hey
    Just a quick note to all you histamine flushers...you might want to try adding Magnesium and Vit C powder to your regimen. I was so bummed this summer because due to all the mold in the environment my nose and cheeks were really puffy, my nose was shiny and waxy looking, and the little red lines on my nose were much more noticeable. I was kind of at my wit's end. Then I remembered that some people recommend Vit C powder and magnesium to lower histamine levels and fight allergies...I have noticed quite a difference. I still take my usual supplements but this addition has helped.
    Regards
    Queta

    Be careful with this very high dosage.
    The body can utilize a little over 500mg in a single dose.
    8g a day is way too much, imo.
    Over 500mg at a time, the body has to get rid of oxalic acid, the toxic metabolite of vitamin C. It increases the risk of calcium oxalate stones in the kidneys.
    Too much vit c can provoque very loose stools and diarrhea.

    Natural sources of vitamin C are a better choice than synthetic ones, because they are well balanced and contains natural bioflavonoids wich will help absorption, a synergistic effect.
    100mg amla = 1200mg synthetic ascorbic acid (synthetic vit c).
    Kiwis are a good source too, or acerola berries, if you can find them.

    But to get rid of histamine, increasing methylation is a good choice. 1000mg Trimethylglycine 3 times daily with meals is a cheap and efficient way to do that.

    Good luck.

    Thanks for replying to this, Mask. I was away from my computer for awhile and didn't see this one. I am glad you gave a warning about the potential pitfalls of taking too much Vit C.
