Let me start by explaining why i put this in the conspiracy forum. Basically because everyone is saying that this stuff works for this and that and i wanted to give people some live trial results and maybe someone could add some ideas that we can try live and have actual proof from the person trying it. Thanks.
Ok so i have been doing live trials on myself with various things to test their potency. First let me tell you about myself for perspective. I am a professional mixed martial artist and professional boxer, and i have a winning record. I have been a competitive combat sports athlete for 10 years having my first amateur competition in 2003. Now i am training for a competition coming up in a few months so i am in good physical condition and i tend to be more aware of the results then someone who is not as athletically challenged as myself. Not bragging just giving some background information for perspective(and of course always bragging a little). Now here is a breakdown of what i have found works for me and a little information on what i have been taking and how.
Lets start with Kombucha because that is my favorite and i get the best results from the tea. Here is a link to the company whos Kombucha i buy weekly.
I drink 3 full bottles a week, i split them up by half. Sometimes i drink 4-5 bottles depending on how i feel and sometimes i drink 1-2, but i drink it consistently every week. One of the major benefits i have noticed from it is my MOOD. Yes my mood, for some reason when i drink kombucha i tend to have happier more focused thoughts. I read a study awhile back on ATS about how the bacteria in your stomach reflects in your general altitude. I think this may have something to do with it. I notice this affect the strongest when i STOP drinking it for a period of time, which i immediately respond by getting a bottle from my local store.
Now lets go to the apple cider vinegar which i drink more sparingly.
Typically i drink locally made apple cider vinegar that tends to be on the more pulpy side, but during the winter i drink bragg. I tend to drink this more sparingly and in smaller doses. I also use this as an energy booster in the morning if im feeling a little sluggish. I find that when i drink the vinegar i pee a lot. This is one of the reasons i use it more sparingly, this is because i need to be super hydrated for training at night. I find that the apple cider vinegar is a great detox and i use it to help me cut weight. IT DEFINITELY KEEPS ME CLEAN. I don't know what it is but it cleans out my intestines and helps my metabolism kick into gear. This i can FEEL. I also use the vinegar when im sick or hungover(not often).
Next lets cover the flaxseed oil.
So i take the flaxseed oil/grains as often as i think of it because i feel the affects almost within the hour. This has increased my energy levels overall, my levels of focus, it has helped my joint pain, brain function and i can't even think of what else. I highly recommend any omega supplements such as flaxseed to anyone for any reason. This supplement has truly helped and i LOVE it! Oh i take it by the recommended dose on the bottle but who cares take as much as you want its great.
Next lets go over the emergen-c packets.
I take these everyday sometimes twice a day depending on when and how much i sweat. I don't know about these. The affects of these may be more subtle then i think and i realize i need the trace minerals to support all of my functions and absorption of everything else.
So far i am on the fence with this. Further trials with other products are needed.
Coconut oil. Well who knows about this one.
I made a thread about coconut oil and treating my grandmothers Alzheimer's here.
So i personally don't care much for the oil i use it to cook now sometimes and haven't really gotten noticeable results from it. Still it taste good and i enjoy cooking with it.
So these are my results, if you have any suggestions please reply. If you could recommend me a better vitamin-c solution i would appreciate it.edit on 3-2-2013 by onequestion because: (no reason given)edit on 3-2-2013 by onequestion because: (no reason given)

Well that makes me feel better...not that you have issues with vitamin c, im sorry you do....but...that I am not alone...I didn't know what to think?!
As for my time line...I ordered liposmal vitamin c on line, and it showed up on Friday jan 18th. I started taking a teaspoon in the morning on Saturday the 19th. ....by the following Friday the 25 th, I was hacking and coughing hard! So I doubled the dose, one teaspoon in the morning and one teaspoon at night to kick the cold out of me. By that Sunday the 27 th, I was so sick, I didn't go to work on Monday ..and I stopped taking it on monday the 28 th..I was fine the next day on tuesday and am still fine...so...some kind of a weird reaction?
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America defines an allergy as an overreaction of the immune system to a foreign substance. Even though your immune system may recognize naturally occurring vitamin C in foods, taking a synthetic supplement may not be recognized. If your immune system accidentally identifies the synthetic supplement as a threat to the body, the immune system will produce various chemicals to defend the body. This can cause various symptoms that can affect your breathing, cardiovascular system and skin.
