Read your article on liposomal and glucose. I'm confused a bit...does Ascorbic acid raise insulin levels? I know it can interfere with glucose monitors, but now wondering if high dose C will raise insulin. I'm not diabetic, but have other health issues including a bad heart valve, and I'm trying to do all I can to reduce inflammation. I take about 5-6 grams of ascorbic acid.
I do take some lipo C as well, but don't want to high dose as its more expensive and I personally believe it could be too much lecithin, so I really on plain ascorbic acid for most of my C.
It is an interesting and open question whether high dose ascorbic acid can trigger insulin release by the pancreas. I don't know, and maybe forum members do or can help.
I tended to think not, at least in most people, based on the experience with very high dose intravenous vitamin C. Doctors feel they have to add insulin to the drip to "target" cancers, and if the high dose on its own produced an insulin release, I didn't think they would have to do that.
Also, the benefits of high dose vitamin C are well known, and in my case, for years on 18,000 mg orally, my blood sugar was constant at 90 mg/dl. One would think that my blood sugar would tend to be low (hypoglycemic) if high dose ascorbic acid produced insulin release.
But I have read material, some I think by Roger J Williams, PhD, that indicates there are findings that high vitamin C can, at least in some people, produce a reaction in the pancreas similar to that produced by high blood sugar.
I'm interested to see what others know or can find.
