I read the autobiography of Paul Kimmage, the former professional cyclist who strove to have a clean riding career with his bicycle. Anyway, he'd talk about taking Vitamin B injections by staff of the cycling teams he rode on, legal by the way and taking Vitamin C pills for his endurance riding, keeping them in his back pocket.
Well, I don't know about you, but I always envision vitamin C pills as being the kind of chewable types kids might like or that one might take to ward off colds and keep a strong immune system.
But I thought, why not try that? I've wanted to stay away even from using the legal stimulants people do and when I say that, I mean your energy drinks and energy products at the stores or at least, not feel dependent on them.
Whooah, I went to the health food store and got some Ester C, I mean, the first day I thought, 1 or 2, I don't need much of this but that stuff gets you UP UP UP and with me, maybe a headache too, it really does stimulate to the point where I wonder if Ester C is actually a good pill to take and I found some criticisms of it on the web but it was not that easy to sift out if you type in "ester c, side effects".
I'm thinking if one goes on a long run or wants a good workout, maybe a C supplement might be of use but I'll tell you, with me at least, Ester C is strong stuff. I've decided to open up a pill in a glass of water and stir it up. Pills can be strong and I think a lot of us don't need so much. Sure is as different as can be from a glass of orange juice, what I always thought vitamin C mainly was (yes, of course I know, why not just eat the orange itself). Ester C will keep you up at night if you have it late oh, and it can give me a headache too. I'm very cautious as to how I will consume it, once this bottle is gone (500 mgs and the person in the health food store told me she'd take 1000 mgs twice a day), maybe I'd like another C supplement but not as strong or perhaps just eat it in fruit but it certainly is a boost.
