ascorbic acid is vitamin c with a low ph ie acidic whereas sodium carbonate is washing soda with a high ph ie alkaline. They can be mixed in an acid/base reaction to form sodium ascorbate when in the correct quantities will increase the ph ie reduce the acidity of the vitamin c making it easier on the stomach. A similar process can be done using sodium bicarbonate which is usually more likely considered to be food grade and reacts better with acids due to it's higher ph.
A similar process can be used with magnesium carbonate which is alkaline and usually a bright white powder which turns clear when it reacts with sufficient acid. This forms magnesium ascorbate a magnesium salt which is quite well absorbed providing magnesium and vitamin c which is gentle on the stomach. I use this myself. Magnesium carbonate is fairly inexpensive and provides about 28% magnesium by weight so works out fairly good value. Magnesium carbonate can be mixed with many different acids to enhance it's absorption for example malic acid to form magnesium malate.
I'm in the midst of my first vitamin c flush . I've had gallbladder attacks come to find out since I was 13, I'm 27 now. Just had my first baby 2 months ago. The first trimester I had the most gallbladder attacks I've ever had, up to 3 a week. Ended up in the ER for the first time, that's when I found out I had multiple stones. Anyways, just had another gallbladder attack 4 days ago, the day before yesterday felt one coming on so I took some antacids, took it away. Currently, I just reached flush with vitamin c at 32 grams , now I feel my gallbladder acting up. Kinda expected it. I've read all the liver & gallbladder flushes and iam really in need of doing one and continuing till the stones are flushed out. But iam breastfeeding. I do know with the vit c flush, ascorbate neutralizes all the toxins & keeps them in the bowels. But with these other flushes ,I haven't found anything that has proved toxins do not leach into the breastmilk during it. Reading that the gallbladder flush can make you nauseated, I take that as that's when toxins are getting ready to be excreted.
Any information would be very helpful. Advice. Whatever. Thank you.
