Ascorba - Min

 

Haida Gwaii 2010 184

Vitamin C is unquestionably the single most important nutrient in the improvement of an enormously wide range of health problems.

It is a miracle worker!

Scientists have demonstrated that it is bactericidal virucidal, a detoxifying agent, activates the white blood cell, stabilizes allergic responses, calms inflammation, reverses glaucoma and cataracts, heals ulcers, helps prevent colds and flu, normalizes kidney and bladder function, improves diabetes and hypoglycemia, neutralizes poisons, heals wounds, prevents bone fractures, calms arthritis and rheumatism, eases pregnancy, helps the mentally ill, improves cancer recovery, lowers cholesterol, improves gall bladder, and extends life.

The Origin of Vitamin C:

Humans are among the very small and unique group of animals (the guinea, the fruit eating bat, the chimpanzees, and the duck billed platypus) that cannot manufacture Vitamin C in our liver, while all other animals can. On a pound for pound basis, how much vitamin C would we make each day if we could the amount that a cow, dog, or pig makes? We would make 3,750 mg. per day, unless we were under stress, then we would make a lot more!

What is Vitamin C?

With so much talk about vitamin C being “natural” and “organic” verses “synthetic,” there is a lot of confusion about what vitamin C really is. Scientist say that ascorbic acid is Vitamin C. But is it? Many people feel that since the ascorbic acid that is found in plant foods is associated with things like Rutin, Hesperidin, and the bioflavonoids, that the combination of these factors is Vitamin C. Actually, this is what is known as the “Vitamin C Complex.” Each member of this complex makes its own contribution to our good health. However, when we look at the vitamin C that is produced by the liver of various animals, we find that it is always ascorbic acid.

Their liver manufactures it from blood sugar (glucose). Then utilizing four different enzymes, it removes four hydrogenions from the glucose and thus creates ascorbic acid. Humans lack the last enzyme and therefore cannot manufacture ascorbic acid. We must get it from our diet.

The Ascorbic Acid used in supplements is made in the same way as the liver manufactures it by enzymatic  reduction of glucose to the ascorbic acid molecule.

 

Ascorbates (Vitamin C plus Minerals):

Since the body always has to convert ascorbic acid to an ascorbates before it can use it, taking the ascorbates form (ascorbic acid mixed with minerals) of vitamin C as a supplement saves our body a lot of work. Ascorbates also gives us a good source of minerals delivered right to our cells. This is why the mineral ascorbates form is preferred by physicians who use large amounts of vitamin C.

Nontoxic:

Even in massive doses, vitamin C is described in medical literature as “virtually nontoxic”. The chief concern has been that large amounts of vitamin C cause kidney stones. This concern is totally unfounded. There has not been one single case of kidney stones in all of the medical literature as a result of vitamin C intake.

There are only two kinds of kidney stones, acid or alkaline, and oddly enough, vitamin C helps prevent and dissolve both kinds.

The Laxative Effect:

In large doses, vitamin C has a laxative effect. This occurs when the dosage is greater than the body’s ability to assimilate it from the intestinal tract.

Dr. Robert Cathcart a world-recognized authority on vitamin C, suggest taking a mineral ascorbates form on a daily basis just below the point that causes a loose stool. He calls this “bowel tolerance.” This effect is often used to good advantage by those with chronic constipation. It has a two-fold benefit. It speeds up the bowel transit time, thus reducing the cancer-causing toxins from being absorbed from the fecal matter into the blood stream.

Also the high amount of vitamin C acts as a detoxifying agent to neutralize bacterial toxins and other poisons while in the large bowel, thus reducing the tendency toward bowel cancer.

Cancer:

Animals such as man, which are unable to produce vitamin C, simply exhaust their supply and become susceptible to cancer.

Terminal Cancer:

In 1971, Dr. Ewn Cameran at Vale of Leven Hospital in Scotland in conjunction with Dr. Linus Pauling began administering what, at that time, seemed like a large dose of 10 grams of sodium ascorbates per day to terminally ill cancer patients for whom nothing more could be done. This was the only treatment given in their last dying days. One hundred such patients were carefully matched to 1,000 others who did not receive the vitamin C.

Those without the vitamin C suffered terribly as most terminal cancer patients do, and all were dead within 400 days. However, those who received the ascorbates improved, their pain disappeared, they got off morphine and heroin without any withdrawal symptoms, they lived an average of 10 months longer than those without the vitamin C, and a remarkable 5% totally recovered, while all 1,000 of those without the vitamin C died.

Since that time, larger amounts of ascorbates are now being given, and at an earlier stage in the treatment program. The results have been even more impressive.

Other Successes:

Hepatitis, Herpes and other Viruses, Heart attack and Strokes, Arthritis and Rheumatism, Hay Fever and Asthma, Glaucoma and Cataracts, Stomach Ulcers, Cystitis, Kidney and Bladder, Pregnancy,  Diabetes and Hypoglycemia, Wounds, Backs and Gangrene, and Aging.

Choosing the Right Dosage:

The Ascorba-Min formula comes as a powder. A slightly rounded teaspoonful provides approximately 3,100 mg. of Ascorba-Min, along with a full complement of the minerals and bioflavonoids reviewed herein.

The Rebound Effect:

When large amounts of vitamin C are taken each day (5 or more grams), the body begins to accomplish certain biochemical functions. This is especially true with regards to the immune system. If this large intake is suddenly stopped, it can leave the body temporarily vulnerable until the body has a chance to adjust to the lower intake of vitamin C. This is known as the rebound effect. Thus, those who chose to have a high daily intake of vitamin C should taper off gradually should they desire to quit taking high amounts, so the body can adjust to the lower dose without creating the temporary vulnerability of the rebound effect.
