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.
 
8g a day. i think i read where romanowski would take 60g plus per day via IV and it helped with recovery and immune system. i think he got it from poliquin.
 
2g in the am, 2g in the pm (4grams a day)
 
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
 
Damn , I take 1000mg twice a day with a multi vitamin and 50mg zinc

I may up the dose some to see if their is any added benifit other than bright yellow pee
 
hmmm

i mega dose vitamin c

2 g with every meal

6 meals

so 12g a day

i find it helps with recovery, immune system of course, even vascularity.

i remember reading that vit c helps with nitric oxide production

as well as cortisal levels
 
I take 2 grams/day from vit C pills and about 1g/day from my fruits/veggies and juices.

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.

Not 100% sure whats in the multi , 10mg i think , but no i general only take one 50mg pill a day
