Vitamin C is still one of least expensive but most valuable nutrients you can take for health care. C helps with colds and flu, respiratory infections, adrenal and thyroid support, heavy metal toxicities, infertility, diabetes, eye problems, inflammation, asthma, post-surgical support, hypertension and heart disease. Vitamin C helps maintain our collagen for firm, healthy skin as well.
look at heart disease. According to Dr. Al Sears, a well known cardiologist,
Vitamin C deficiency plays a major role in heart attack and stroke. And,
vitamin C therapy can reverse years of accumulated damage to help you:
When you lack vitamin C, cracks and lesions form in the walls of your blood vessels. When blood vessels break down, arterial plaques fortify the weakness and "repair" the damage.
But when these arterial plaques become too thick, they block the flow of blood. A lack of blood to the heart triggers a heart attack - and a lack of blood to the brain causes a stroke.
1) Dr. James Enstrom from the University of California studied the vitamin intake of over 11,000 people for 10 years. He found that 300 mg of vitamin C a day reduced risk of heart disease by 50 percent in men and 40 percent in women. The test also revealed that a higher intake of vitamin C boosted life expectancy by 6 years.
2) Dr. GC
Willis found that people taking 1,500mg of vitamin C a day for 12 months
reversed plaque while those who didn't take vitamin C had worsening plaque.
So how does vitamin C protect you from heart disease and stroke? Vitamin C increases the production of collagen, elastin and other "reinforcement molecules" which support your blood vessels in the same way that iron rods support tall buildings. More collagen means more stability for your 60,000-mile-long system of arteries, veins and capillaries.
Dr. Sears says that for maintenance 3000 mgs of vitamin C a day is recommended. Pregnant women should get at least 6,000-mg per day - and in times of stress or sickness, you can take up to 20,000-mg. A powdered form may be more convenient for larger doses. Vitamin C should be taken throughout the day to bathe your cells in it. You can titer the dosage by how loose your stools get. Too much C will loosen, not enough will keep you bound up. 500 to 1000 mg at a time is usually the right dose.
