Vitamin C as Cortisol Control Replacement?
« on: January 19, 2012, 09:39:04 AM »
I have searched for this everywhere and cant find a legitimate answer but anyways what I am asking is: Can I take high doses of Vitamin C instead of a cortisol control supplement? And if so how high should the dosage be each day?

I have a professor who specifically studies Vitamin C. I'll ask him about cortisol control. I know he did a study claiming that ideal dosage would be 500mg a.m and 500mg p.m. Roc Ordman is his name, I know he has a bunch stuff published but I don't have the time to go through it now.
The joy is in the process, not the end result.

I've never heard of that one before... but who knows, I learn something new everyday.

I do remember reading that a high dose of Vitamin C before a workout, perferably cardio, provides excellent results in terms of endurance and it burns more calories... I have to look that study up though, its been awhile.

1,000mg-2,000mg post workout.

I've been doing this for a little while now but cannot confirm for sure. Actually, that makes me wanna ask my nutrition professor. She has a PHD and like to conduct research so maybe she will know for sure.

The body burns off a lot of vitamins, especially vitamin C, during exercise. A huge side affect of vitamin C deficiency is fatigue/loss of energy. Looking at the profiles for a bunch of pre workouts I noticed some of them contain Vitamin C. It would be interesting to look in to and maybe add to an intra.

I've never heard of Vit C as cortisol control. How did you come up with this idea?

i read into a study about vitamin c and cortisol levels recently. 1,000mg of vitamin c was given to people per day and they were given some sort of program that intentially gave them more stress. the study ended up showing that people that had lower than basal levels of vitamin c in their body ended up lowering their cortisol levels and had a better outlook in life. and the people that had normal basal levels of vitamin c already, did not affect their mood nor cortisol levels.

i would think that it would help with cortisol lowering effect was more indirectly due to the fact that the subject already had vitamin c levels and the vitamin c helped them tolerate stress easier, resulting in lower cortisol levels. i dont think the vitamin c affected cortisol levels directly.

who knows could be wrong though. but thats what i got out of reading into the study.

I have read on a few different forums saying that but I didnt know the truth behind it either so I figured I would ask around.

I'm surprised you had to suggest that. I thought that was the source of the magnificent fount of knowledge.

Did you find that study on Pub Med or some other open med site? Also was the research done on everyday people or athletes?
