Above a certain point, the volume of acid entering the duodenum exceeds the ability of the pancreas to neutralize it. The acid then starts to damage the intestine and the intestine responds with diarrhea in order to flush the acid out. Thus you have the bowel limit for vitamin C. It will vary from one individual to the next because everyone will have a somewhat different capacity for a bicarbonate flush to neutralize the acid.
Very Important Note
The baking soda portion of this treatment should not be used for more than three weeks at a time...
I, myself, am looking for ways to increase bowel tolerance. I used to be able to take about 12+gm of C daily. But now I cannot even handle 8gm. (and I'm even using the buffered C)

I'm addressing heart arrhythmias and palpitations.
There has not been a bettering of the symptoms since my tolerance has dropped.
What do you think about the baking soda part?

Have you checked all your supplements to make sure you are not getting more than 2 mg of manganese?
What about dental work? Do a google search on "cavitations" and irregular heart beat.
