Has Anyone Tried DHAA(dehydroascorbic acid)?

Dehydroascorbic acid is an oxidized form of vitamin c that has been shown to increase serum levels of vitamin c higher and more efficiently than lyposomal vitamin c or ascorbic acid alone. Only intravenous vitamin c is better at this.

While dehydroascorbic acid does not have any vitamin-like properties itself it is transported throughout the body and then converted back to ascorbic acid (through a process called reduction). DHAA is also able to cross the blood brain barrier.


One of the downfalls of taking large doses of oral ascorbic acid is the resulting diarrhea. I have taken 2 grams of DHAA so far without these side effects.

If this is what I think it is, there was a thread about it a few years ago here..

All i remember is the need for soy lecithin, or some other fatty/emulsifier, and one of those sonic jewelry cleaners to shake up the ascorbic acid and stir it into solution.. or something.

Was always interested but never did it. Or maybe this is something totally different?

Another thing to keep in mind is that your body processes all ascorbic acid very quickly, regardless of how you inject it. You might want to space out the supplementation throughout the day to keep your levels as high as you might like.

Tried it once, as i recall, it was not that special, i have become suspicious of supplements, that claim to cross the blood brain barrier, like BCAA for sporting activities.. it does not sound good at all..

That's lyposomal C that requires lecithin and an ultrasonic cleaner. I don't have an ultrasonic cleaner so I thought I'd make some DHAA.

Yes that is correct. To maintain serum levels, orally administered vit c needs to be taken every 2 to 3 hours.

Gotchya. In that case, what is the difference (chemically and process wise) and how do you feel about the effects?

Although the brain is one of the organs which has the greatest concentrations of vitamin C, the major advantage of DHAA crossing the blood brain barrier is protection from neuronal injury following a stroke.

DHAA does in fact cross the blood brain barrier.

i just feel weird, that a product is able to do that, especially since "health" is big business these days..

i dont even believe that we can get real vitamins in a powder or pill form... something must be broken in the process..

The advantage with DHAA is being able to orally take large doses of vit. C cheaply and without the stomach upset, which could be helpful in a cancer treatment protocol when intravenous vit. c is not readily available.

I've only made one batch of DHAA so far and that is the only experience I've had with it.

This video goes into more detail about DHAA and how to make it.

You are partially correct and there is much b.s. in marketing supplements, but there are some honest, informed sources, and not all supplements need to be "natural" ... like vit c since you absolutely cannot get enough from diet or "natural sources" alone... if you follow the science and voluminous anecdotal evidence saying the rda is abysmally low, anyway.

What's your recipe for DHAA?

Scrub that, just saw the video post. Cheers!

When most people want to take a vit. C supplement they prefer a complete "natural" form that supplies bioflavonoids and accompanying elements. Since this works on a cellular level pure ascorbic acid is preferred.

Eat plenty of Melons..the bigger the better, you might even get a John Boehner sun tan special.

Why not just eat a healthy amount of fruits and vegetables? I don't seem to have any need for supplements.

This is an excellent video of a lecture on just about everything you could want to know about vit.C by Dr. Suzanne Humphries, a specialist in internal medicine and kidney disease. It's a little long but in the first 10 minutes or so she talks about the low US RDA.

This is a way to take larger doses of vit. C to battle a cold or flu for example.

Pretty much what I was talking about..I didn't mean eat a whole dirty great melon, just that the bigger a melon,(green or white) the more ascorbic acid it has in concentration for the body to convert and absorb....allegedly.
Meanwhile the Physicists have discovered the God particle, which seemingly has no conscience...is neutral, an interesting comparison to Vitamin C. Is it time the Physicists got off their fat arses, and make things work for the real issues, and help make the human body work better in real terms now.
