For many years now, government authorities, the pro-pharma medical orthodoxy and the media have claimed that any intake of vitamin C that exceeds 150 mg per day is eliminated in the urine and that taking supplements therefore results in “expensive urine”. In this short video, filmed in 1993, two-time Nobel Laureate Linus Pauling describes how he investigated this claim during the 1970s when he was taking 10 grams of vitamin C a day and, by measuring his own urine, found it to be false.

  1. Vitamin C can stay in the body for weeks. Levels of vitamin C in the blood are controlled by the kidneys through a process known as ‘renal reabsorption,’ which prevents vitamin C from being lost in the urine. Taking large doses of it can overwhelm this system, so the extra amount is lost in the urine in a matter of hours.

    • Hmm, false information from Jonah? Contradicts Linus Pauling’s discoveries, and whose qualifications (nutritional scientist, nobel prize, etc.) and findings remain beyond question. At age 65 I take 20 grams of C daily, as did Linus. Following the Pauling/Rath protocol reversed my own heart disease ten years ago and that of countless others who listened to him. Wrote all about it on my website…

  2. It s unlikely that coffee will flush any vitamins or minerals from your system, other than increasing your production of urine. It s probably not a substantial effect.
