Not Again, I'm sorry I don't have much more to add than the others here. Except that (of course I am no Dr!) I believe you can take higher doses of vite C -- esp when you are attacking something. If it causes diahwhatever, then you have had enough and will know what dose you can handle. AS I said before, I can take 10,000 mg w/o the diah problem. And, from what I have read (for years) is that C is water soluble, meaning it does not build up in your body and cause any kind of overdose. Whatever you body does not need is pee'd out.
Walmart has odorless garlic that is very cheap. The quality? I don't know, but I have been taking it for years. Used to take once per day, then twice, and now w/ all the infections, am taking it 3 times per day.
Make sure you buy the bottle of odorless GELTABS and NOT 'odorless' PILLS!! You can open the 'odorless' pills and freaking SMELL all the garlic. Not so w/ the gel tabs.
