The surpressed TRUTH about vitamin C
Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid, L-ascorbic acid, or L-ascorbate) is absolutely essential for optimal health. But, you wouldn't know it, listening to reports from the mainstream media or Western medicine.
Why are they so silent about this reality?
The reason is fairly obvious, since maintaining proper levels of vitamin C would clearly threaten the profits of our present day 'sick care medical system.' The undeniable (suppressed) truth is: healthier people don't need many of the drugs promoted by the pharmaceutical industry.
Basic truths rarely mentioned by the mainstream media or 'modern' medicine
Vitamin C plays a major role in the formation and maintenance of blood vessels, skin and bones. It’s water soluble, and (as the word suggests) easily dissolved in water.
Another important point to remember: Vitamin C should be consumed every day because the body does not store it for long periods of time. In fact, the two forms I take (each day) are an 'Ultrafine' powder and a liposomal form of vitamin C from LuvByNature. I can't ever say enough about how helpful this vitamin has been for my health (and for many of our friends and family).
This vitamin is truly the 'muscle of our immune system.' And, that's something you rarely (if ever) hear about from conventionally-trained physicians. But, in all fairness, it would be unreasonable to expect to hear these truths from your doctor. Why?
Simply put, most conventionally-trained physicians only get a few hours of basic nutrition education in medical school. So, it would be like asking your auto mechanic for medical advice. They simply aren't qualified to render an opinion.
Keep in mind: a severe deficiency in vitamin C can cause weakness, decreased red blood cells, bleeding gums, and a host of other unwanted conditions. But, the good news is - this is completely avoidable, providing you take action.
Vitamin C WARNING for every person looking to avoid life-threatening infections
The body rapidly loses vitamin C during sickness thus increasing the risk of sepsis that is known to claim a massive number of lives. In fact, septic shock can be fatal 30 to 50 percent of the time (conservatively speaking) – and claims about 250,000 lives per year in the United States alone!
Vitamin C supplementation offers the same cardiovascular advantages as exercise, research shows
There's no doubt that exercise goes a long way in offering health benefits for all of us - especially if you're overweight. But, truth be told, we are living in challenging times - where every minute needs our undivided attention and if this sounds like you, a study conducted at the University of Colorado has great news for you.
Overweight people have high levels of the ET-1, a protein that is the culprit behind the constriction of blood vessels in the body, that interferes with proper blood flow and as a result increase the risk of cardiovascular disease.
Naturally, exercise is a good way to reduce ET-1 activity but the problem is many people don't dedicate enough time to generate positive results. So, researchers went on a fact finding mission to determine whether vitamin C - famed for vessel function improvement - could be the 'silver bullet' in lowering ET-1 activity.
The team found out that vitamin C supplementation on a daily basis (500 milligrams per day) drastically reduced vessel constriction caused by ET-1 - the same way as walking exercise did. These findings made the researchers conclude that vitamin C supplementation is a remarkable lifestyle approach for the prevention of body weight issues.
A healthy perspective grounded in common sense
If you have always wondered about the health benefits of vitamin C, the above study certainly speaks volumes as to why vitamin C is so valuable for human health. Simply put, eating an organic diet - rich in vitamin C foods like fruits and vegetables - is a wise move for all of us.
In addition, for many people, supplementation would go a long way toward supporting a healthy immune system and optimal health.
