    I am wondering if taking high amounts of the AdenB12 and MethylB12 causes you to deplete Vitamin C?
    (i have a bad cold)
    I thought maybe having high B12 might move the citric acid cycle to fast and thus deplete Vitamin C.. not sure?..

    Thanks.

    Not sure. But taking more vitamin C for a cold has often been beneficial to me -- I generally take to bowel tolerance.

    Actually it's supposed to be the other way around - too much Vit C. depletes/destroys B12.

    This is from Ben Lynch:
    If you want to take more than 450mg Vit. C, then take it some time (a couple hours?) before or after taking B12.

    Vitamin C has nothing to do with the citric acid cycle. Vitamin C is ascorbic acid. The citric acid cycle is also known as the Krebs cycle. No amount of cobalamin cause vit C depletion though if in the stomach vit C and potassium can block b12 absorption and folate absorption from the stomach and intestines. Personally I followed Paulings advice and kept increasing it to intestinal tolerance , 16 grams for years. Since Deadlock Quartet healing I have found 6 gr a day satisfactory.
