Vitamin C deficiency is often overlooked but may be the cause of some serious problems ,if it’s absence is prolonged and severe. Vitamin C keeps at bay many age related illnesses and thus it can be considered a fountain of youth.
Problems like :heart atack ,chronic fatigue, gingivitis ,pariodontal disease, dry skin, nose bleeds may appear.
There are 3 species of mamals that cannot produce vitamin C by themselves :hamsters,primates and you guessed it Humans .We need to provide our vitamin C from outside sources like food or supplements .
Here are the simptoms of a deficiency of Vitamin C may produce:
* Tiredness and weakness.
* Muscle and joint pains.
* Easy bruising.
* Spots that look like tiny, red-blue bruises on your skin. Other symptoms can include:
* Dry skin.
* Splitting hair.
* Swelling and discoloration of your gums.
* Sudden and unexpected bleeding from your gums.
* Poor healing of wounds.
* Problems fighting infections.
* Bleeding into joints, causing severe joint pains.
* Changes in your bones.
* Tooth loss.
* Weight loss.
“Importantly, vitamin C is also able to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin E. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, the intercellular ‘cement’ substance which gives structure to muscles, vascular tissues, bones, tendons and ligaments. Vitamin E is responsible for the youth having lean face skin. Due to these functions, vitamin C – especially in combination with zinc – is also important for the healing of wounds.
In addition, vitamin C contributes to the health of teeth and gums, preventing haemorrhaging and bleeding. It also improves the absorption of iron from the diet. Vitamin C is also needed for the metabolism of bile acids which may have implications for bloodcholesterol levels and gallstones.
Moreover, vitamin C plays an important role in the synthesis of several important peptide hormones, neurotransmitters and carnitine.
Vitamin C is also a crucial factor in the eye’s ability to deal with oxidative stress, and can delay the progression of advanced age-related macular degeneration (AMD) and vision-loss.”
Stressed ,phisycal active persons and smokers need to take a lot more vitamin C to prevent it’s deficiency ,as these actions consume vitamin C.
A ciggarete needs 25mg of vitamin C to compensate for the oxidative process and free radicals.
It’s recommended that you take a minimum of 90mg a day to prevent scurvy disease. But that is far from the real neccessary daily dose . Think it as a minimum wage salary ,you may survive on it but you won’t thrive.
The most prominent role of vitamin C is its immune-system booster.It also acts as an inhibitor of histamine, a compound that is released during allergic reactions.
As a powerful antioxidant it can neutralize harmful free radicals and it aids in neutralizing pollutants and toxins. Thus it is able to prevent the formation of potentially carcinogenic nitrosamines in the stomach (due to consumption of nitrite-containing foods, such as smoked meat).
Mega dosing on vitamin C Vitamin C taken in large amounts and has no toxic effects ,the surplus of vitamin C is passed down in the urine .
The limit of saturation of oraly taken vitamin C is dependent on the bowel tolerance : when the stools become loose and you experience gases that’s when you took enough. If you take too much vitamin C you may experience nausea,diahreea ,heartburns.vomiting ;only when taken orally, if it is taken by injection, under medical supervision, these side effects do not occur.
You may think to take suplements of vitamin C as an orange(100g)has 52mg and a lemon (100g) 53 mg of vitamin C. The vitamin C in fruits is lower than what you would get from a pill, but it must be noted that vitamin C taken from natural sources is much more effective than the one made in the lab.
Dr. Klenner’s Formula for vitamin c recommandation is: 350 mg Vitamin C per kg body weight per day (350 mg./kg./day) Taken in 9-18 doses . I recommend working it gradually from 1000-2000mg upwards taken in multiple doses, To see your body’s reaction. But, remember :too low of a dose and you won”t see a change .
Megadossing has been shown to : “Dr. Fredrick R. Klenner discovers the real power of vitamin C and how to cure disease
Believe it or not, in the 1940’s, Dr. Klenner used vitamin C to cure 60 out of 60 cases of polio and that was back in the days when the polio vaccine didn’t even exist.
Dr. Klenner even presented his findings – at a large medical conference about his success with high dose vitamin C therapy and it was largely ignored.
Dr. Klenner was one of the first physicians to cure disease with vitamin C. In fact, he consistently eliminated chicken pox, measles, mumps, tetanus and polio with huge doses of IV vitamin C. And, keep in mind, Dr. Klenner did this when vaccines didn’t even exist.
Vitamin C prevents oxydative damage. It promotes youth.
These are the medical facts. Dr. Klenner cured pneumonia, encephalitis, herpes zoster (shingles), herpes simplex, mononucleosis, pancreatitis, hepatitis, rocky mountain spotted fever, bladder infections, alcoholism, arthritis, some cancers, leukemia, atherosclerosis, ruptured intervertebral disc, high cholesterol, corneal ulcers, diabetes, glaucoma, radiation burns. The list goes on and on.
He published dozens of papers – just ‘google’ Dr. Klenner and you’ll be amazed at what you find.”
IMPORTANT NOTE: Vitamin C is most effieciently absorbed when having a low blood sugar: after training, after waking up ,after fasting.
Try to avoid combining high carb foods with vitamin C.
Vitamin C and glucose in the blood have the same transporter to the cell INSULIN ,BUT glucose is like the V.I.P. Glucose is privileged in the transport that means that vitamin C will not be so efficiently absorbed.
Also ,try to take natural vitamin C ,as it is more effective.Here is a zoomed in photo of a molecule of vitamin C. Long term effect of taking vitamin c include maintaining our youth.
