Research indicates Vitamin C may inhibit Methylene Blue's killing of Candida
Ted's advice on many areas of health have been of great assistance to me. I became interested in trying Methylene Blue for attacking my systemic Candida, and did some additional research. I came across a study that indicates that taking Vitamin C with MB may decrease the effectiveness of its impact on Candida. The research is found at https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4780517/
The relevant quote is halfway through the abstract: "... sensitivity of Candida cells to MB could be rescued upon the supplementation of ascorbic acid, an antioxidant." In the context of the abstract, this "rescue" seemed to be contrary to the intent of killing Candida cells.
Therefore, I began to take MB 1 drop twice a day (along with BHT), but taking ascorbic acid at least two hours later. My reasoning was taking such a small dose had no risk of side effects (coloring eye, etc.), but that any potential impact on Candida would not be lessened by the ascorbic acid.
I understand that Ted is not currently up to responding, but am hopeful that this information may help others, if you or someone may take a look at it and comment on how to take MB and Vitamin C (perhaps 2 hours between the two?).
Hoping this may assist others in recovery from Candidiasis;
