(Health Secrets) Vitamin C can lower your risk of heart failure say research! Vitamin C may be the most controversial of all the supplemental vitamins. Linus Pauling, the scientist most responsible for bringing the wonders of vitamin C to the public, has been vilified in an attempt to kill the messenger and marginalize the message. But no matter how the medical mafia tries to denigrate it, vitamin C can’t be suppressed.
High blood levels of vitamin C have recently been linked with lower incidence of heart failure, while lower serum levels of vitamin C were connected to higher death rates. This was reported in the newsletter of the Journal of Othomolecular Medicine.
The study was based on determining if high vegetable and fruit consumption is beneficial for heart health. Most of us know this already, but the bio-marker used in the study was vitamin C serum blood levels.
Orthomolecular medicine relies on the application of high dose supplements to treat both mental and physical disease. High doses are often rendered by injection or IV for critical situations, such as the one that rescued a New Zealand farmer from his near death coma.
In 2007, the CDC reported over 600,000 deaths from heart disease. The Orthomolecular organization’s response to this was that supplementing with inexpensive vitamin C would increase your vitamin C blood levels safely.
According to their newsletter, each 20 micromole/liter (μmol/L) of vitamin C in the blood reduced the heart failure death rate by nine percent. It may take only 500 mgs of vitamin C to achieve 80 micromoles/liter.
Since vitamin C is not produced by the human body, and absorption rates vary among individuals, it’s apparent that taking more even more vitamin C is a good heart health investment.
Vitamin C fact and fiction
Orthomolecular MDs are amazed at the prevailing vitamin C misinformation. The recommended dosage amounts (RDA) listed for vitamin C are just enough to prevent scurvy, at best. But for optimum the dosages should be much higher, according to them.
Those sites and reports that are sanctioned by the medical mafia recommend staying below 2000 mgs of C daily to avoid diarrhea. But the threshold of vitamin C maximum intake is determined by when diarrhea begins. And that varies from individual to individual.
One of the ten websites that spread vitamin C misinformation also warns of cancer from too much vitamin C. This Reuters Health report has been rebutted by Science magazine, but continues to be spread around.
Vitamin C, regardless of origin, is a molecule known as ascorbic acid. Natural vitamin C is found in abundance in many fruits and vegetables; synthetic vitamin C us synthesized from petroleum. The choice is yours. Large dosages should be taken in smaller amounts throughout the day to maintain maximum blood levels.
Mega dose vitamin C by IV or injection for critical conditions is based in ascorbate powder, which buffers the ascorbic acid’s acidity. Mega-dose vitamin C transforms the antioxidant to oxygenate cells. Thus it can be even be used to treat cancer. Straight ascorbic acid is too severe to be rendered by injection or IV. Ascorbate forms of oral vitamin C supplements are good for people with sensitive stomachs also.
