How much vitamin C do you guys take a day and do you increase it during the last few weeks before a show??

I've been doing alot of reading and have seen where some guys go as high as 8-10 grams a day for the last few week before a show? What would be the benifit of such a high dose??

Alos At the weigh ins last week i over heard a trainer telling on of her figure girls to go take 3000mg vitamin C right tnow , Does it have some sort of diuretic effect??

I dont do shows, but I take 1000 mg of vitamin C 2 times a day. 3 times a day if on a cycle.

I use 1000mg 3X per day usually. I don't know why someone would run huge doses in the weeks before a show - maybe for it's effect on lowering cortisol levels, which would probably be heightened with all the stress the body goes through in during a contest prep? As far as taking it at weigh-ins, vitamin C does have a diuretic effect. I used it at 1000mg with each meal the day before my last show.

500mg 3or4 times a day. Morning, b4 training, after training and then b4 bed mostly. No point in taking to much in one go as your body doesn't store it

50mg zinc is very high. Do you take that all year? How much zinc is in your multi-vit?

I've read that 10g is whats commonly used as a nat diuretic. Apparently you just pee out the excess water soluble vitamin c. This...Dandelion root and B6.
