Quick update on my recovery at 55 yrs old after fracturing L1 L2 L3. It has been 10 days since I fell down a flight of stairs. The first 2 days, I basically remained horizontal and from that point progressed steadily and am nearly fully recovered. The ER doc said to expect 5-6 weeks. My neighbors are in disbelief considering I could not stand last week.
I believe the 20g daily of VC is the responsible for my accelerated recovery. I read a medical abstract on the effect of Vitamin C and bone fracture healing time in rats:https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/11510911/
"It was seen that the vitamin C-supplemented group went through the stages of fracture healing faster compared with the control group."
Another testimonial for Vitamin C!
