Fabulous! Thanks for posting. I made my first version tonight in nearly identical fashion, except I blended more than you did. Stirred for about 30
minutes. I took only a small amount tonight because it's evening and I want to sleep, but am eagerly anticipating the morrow, when I can take more.
A bit of background. I am already a big proponent of vitamin C. It started over a year ago, when I went home to see my family. The last time I visited
Michigan, I had picked up a really nasty case of swine flu, which was rampant in Michigan at that time (2009). I vowed never to allow that to happen
I did research and discovered that vit C is an absolute virucide, and was shown to destroy bird flu.This time when I traveled back to Michigan, I had
the following regimen. I took one packet of Emergen C (1,000 mg) in the morning, took 2,000 mg of regular vitamin C midday, and one packet of Emergen
C at night throughout my stay at my brother's.
Of course, I did not get sick. But something else happened.
I noted a wonderful increase in my mood. I've always struggled with major depression. On this trip, I was alert, engaged, cheerful, and most of all,
very bright. I felt mentally bright, but more than that, I felt visually bright.
This is hard to describe without sounding like an idiot. But I felt like I was shimmery, like I myself was shimmering inside and out.
That's the only way I can think of to describe. It was a lightness, a kind of vibration, and an energy that made me feel like I was, well,
sparkling, like the sort of shimmer and sparkle you see in a glass of champagne.
The vitamin C was the sole cause of that reaction. The results were really incredible, and I became convinced then that there was something really
special about it!
These days, if I forget to take vitamin C, I immediately notice the effects. I become tired, lethargic, depressed, and, oddly enough, much more more
prone to negative, gloomy thinking.
Thus, discovering this thread has been a godsend to me in that I will have even more of a natural antidepressant effect. I thank Dominicus for
starting this thread and sharing his knowledge. A special shout-out to MegaMind for seeming to answer every question that popped into my head.
My solution is in the refrigerator, and I will report later in the week on the effect of 4 ounces daily in divided doses.
God bless you all for sharing your experience and hope here on this thread!
