 Edema with Vitamin C intake

Post Edema with Vitamin C intake
It seems that after I started the Vitamin C program I slowly started to notice water retention around my shins and now some in my hands. I am now taking 2 scoops of the Cardio-C per day along with the other suppliments that I have been taking for years. Is there any correlation? Any help would be appreciated.

Post Edema
There are many reason for edema, sodium imbalance, coq10 deficiency, heart failure, etc. Hopefully this is a coincidence. It is not a common report. I might slowly stop the Cardio-C, and verify that the Edema subsides. The restart Cardio-C and verify it comes back, and let us know.

Post Are you avoiding sodium?
Glad to hear about the Coq10. How about unrefined sea salt? A good source of sodium and other minerals. (Elsewhere we've discussed Dr. Brownstein's finding that people on low sodium have an increase risk of heart attack)
