I've heard of people using Vitamin C as a diuretic on/before a contest.
Does anybody here have any experience with it, plus it's usage? I recall reading of 8g of vitamin C a day to use as a diuretic, but no idea on timing.

Vitamin C in high doses, like those that would be required for a mild dieuretic effect, can block Potassium uptake...and that is bad come showtime. I would avoid vitamin C.
