I was reading about vitamin C supplementation today, and came across a comment that cliff made about higher dairy tolerance through supplementation with vitamin C.
What's the biochemical mechanism for such action, or is it an n=1 thing?

just a guess:
vitamin c has antihistaminic properties, so if there's an allergic reaction going on after dairy consumption, it might be possible to prevent adverse reactions with adequate vitamin c intake. (of course just in slight cases)
I don't suggest you down a whole bottle of milk when you're allergic to dairy, but if ghee gives you an upset stomach, vitamin c may possibly help in those dimensions.
