I was trying to reach bowel tolerance today, but stopped, since I got a little insecure.
This was my schedule and my bodily reactions:
07:55 5000 * ascorbic acid - No reaction
08:56 5000* ascorbic acid - No reaction
09:56 5000* ascorbic acid
At this point, and this has happened before, I experience some gas problems, and very mild stomach discomfort.
At the same time the following happens: My head is not "clear", but my energy and focus increases. I am able to work a lot longer than normal without taking any breaks, and I can multitask several tasks without any problems. This is no longer normal for me. I could do this some years ago, but now I have to take very frequent breaks.
10:56 1000*ascorbic acid
11:12 The gas problems are less severe. Some stabilization seems to have occurred.
11:44 3000*ascorbic acid - No worsening of gas problems. Some mild stomach discomfort. No loose stool
12:20 Some mild stomach discomfort. Little gas problems.
I stop at this for today, but I am wondering if I - the next time I try - should aim for 5000 at 10:56 instead of 1000. What do you think?
At the same time I do not see why my gas problems DIMINISH at 11:12, taken into consideration that I take 4000 mg from 10:56-11:44.
