"Ascorbic acid is not vitamin c, but rather a fraction, the outside layer of the biologically utilizable vitamin c complex, as shown in Figure 16.1. i- ASCORBIC ACID -1 ASCORBICEN BIOFLAVINOID COMPLEXES TYROSINAS E P FACTORS K FACTORS J FACTORS 1- ASCORBIC ACID -1 Figure 16.1 Complete vitamin c complex Likewise, alphatocopherol, which is sold as Vitamin E, is only part of the Vitamin E complex. As Richard Murray points out: ... synthetic vitamins are not vitamins at all but synthesized FRACTIONS of a vitamin complex ..."

"Here's an eye-opener: in the last twenty-five years the level of vitamin c deficiency in our population has gone from 3 to 5 percent to a confounding 20 percent—largely due to the shift from whole foods to processed foods.) vitamin c is essential to your body's breakdown and utilization of food, and the body can neither manufacture it on its own or store it. By the same token, you don't need to have osteoporosis to have a calcium deficiency, yet millions don't get enough calcium on a daily basis as a result of diet choices."

"Some nutrients, such as vitamin c, have very short half-lives. vitamin c is half gone in 30 minutes. Vitamin D is a hormone system that has numerous variations or metabolites, all with varying degrees of activity and importance. This book focuses on two of these, but there are many more. Because it's not really one molecule, we can't measure its half-life precisely because it varies, depending on which one you're measuring and the situation you're measuring it in."
- James Dowd and Diane Stafford, The Vitamin D Cure (Get the book.)

"Vitamin C Vitamin C is an important antioxidant for the body. vitamin c can help in the conversion of T4 into T3. When heavy metals, such as cadmium have interfered with the conversion of T4 26 into T3, vitamin c was shown to normalize this conversion. Inadequate vitamin c levels could cause a decrease in the conversion of T4 into T3. Vitamins A and E Vitamins A and E have been shown to be lower in individuals suffering from thyroid abnormalities. Correcting a deficiency in either Vitamin A or Vitamin E will improve thyroid function."

"If a researcher "knows" vitamin c cures colds, he might see improvement in those taking vitamin c but not in those taking a sugar pill—even if there is no change in anyone. Thus, it is best not to allow even the researcher to know who is getting the vitamin c and who is getting the placebo; i.e., the researcher should also be kept "blind" to that information until all the data is collected. Then the envelope which reveals who got what (kept by an independent assistant) can be opened, and the results can be analyzed."

"The harsh climate in northern Europe meant that the diet was often deficient in vitamin c, predisposing the population to scurvy. vitamin c is essential to reweave the broken bits of collagen that routinely occur inside our blood vessels-and our skin. Victims of scurvy often bleed to death from their gums or intestines. Enter Lp(a), which "spackles" holes in damaged blood vessels, allowing our northern European forbears to survive scurvy and reproduce, ensuring the ongoing life of their genes. So far so good."

"Vitamin C vitamin c functions as an important anti-oxidant in the body. vitamin c is necessary to promote healing and is essential to maintaining joint integrity in the body. Rheumatoid arthritis patients have been shown to have a reduced vitamin c level in their blood serum. The major dietary sources of vitamin c are fruits and vegetables. Recommended dose: 3000-5000mg per day. 8. Vitamin D Vitamin D is necessary for maintaining the structural integrity of bones and teeth. It also is important for maintaining a healthy hormonal system."

"For example, when comparing two vitamin c products, the average consumer will typically compare the price and number of milligrams per tablet of one vitamin c product with another. When it comes to enzymes, however, it is not quite as simple. On the following page is a copy of the supplement facts box from the best-selling digestive enzyme product sold in health food stores, Digest Gold, manufactured by Enzymedica. Observe how the ingredients are measured."

"I recommend only the hydroxy cobalamine form of injectable Vitamin B12 and not the cyanocobalamine form of injectable B12. 7. vitamin c VITAMIN C functions as an important anti-oxidant in the body. vitamin c is necessary to promote healing and is essential to maintaining joint integrity in the body.

"Likewise, most animals manufacture their own vitamin c, but humans don't. We can surmise that plants high in vitamin c were so abundant in our early diet that we simply lost the need for that genetic code-or, more accurately, it is just not "turned on." Why give up a potentially useful gene sequence? Because, from a biological point of view, it's excess baggage. It also takes energy to manufacture anything. Interaction with the new animal foods altered our forbears', and consequently our own, genetic ability to manufacture a vitamin necessary for life."

"Supplementary forms of vitamin c are: (a) Ascorbyl palmitate. (b) Mineral ascorbates. (c) Dehydroascorbate. (d) All of the above. Test: Part One Do not refer to the text when taking this test. A good score is at least 75 correct. Answers are in the back of the book. It's best to have a friend check your score the first time, so you won't memorize the answers if you want to take the exam again. 1. Water-soluble vitamins: (a) Are made in the watery parts of the body. (b) Excesses are usually regulated by the kidneys. (c) Are not subject to leaching. (d) Are found in water. 2."

"Lack of vitamin c. 70. The average American man needs to eat how much additional calcium daily to compensate for the average excesses of sodium and protein? (a) 100 mg. (b) 250 mg. (c) 350 mg. (d) Over 500 mg. 71. Which food is highest in calcium? (a) Milk. (b) Sesame seeds. (c) Hamburger. (d) Kale. 72. Most of the phosphorus in the body is in: (a) The bones. (b) The skin. (c) The hair. (d) The blood. 73. There are more phosphate groups in: (a) AMP. (b) ADP. (c) ATP. (d) Creatine phosphate. 74. Magnesium in the body is found mostly in the bones and: (a) Skin. (b) Blood."

"Deceased bio-availability of vitamin B complex, vitamin c, vitamin E, essential minerals, and lipotropics factors in all food tested. ?Various kinds of damage to many plant substances, such as alkaloids, glucosides, galactosides and nitrilosides. ?The degradation of nucleo-proteins in meats. SALTING AND MASSAGE The technique of salting, as indicated in many recipes, helps to soften hard vegetables such as cabbage, kale, or broccoli. Salt causes the vegetables to release moisture as it breaks down the cell walls. Digestion is made easier when these fibers are broken down."

"GOJI BERRIES Clinical analysis shows that this unusual berry is a powerful antioxidant that contains eighteen kinds of amino acids (six times higher than bee pollen), more beta-carotene than carrots, and five hundred times the amount of vitamin c by weight than oranges. It is loaded with vitamins B-l, B-2, B-6, and E. It has been found effective in increasing white blood cells, protecting liver function, lowering cholesterol, relieving hypertension, and helping strengthen the immune system while building muscle tissue and burning body fat. Goji berries are known for enhancing longevity."

"Therefore, on a live-food diet rich in antioxidants, or with supplements such as vitamin E (400-600IU), vitamin c (2000 mg), L-argninine (2,000 mg), garlic, alpha-lipoic acid (300 mg/day), and flavonoids (there are 5,000 different flavonoids—potent antioxidants found in plant foods) all improved endothelial function and blood vessel tone. Therefore, if one is healthy and on a live-food diet high in antioxidants, and uses Extra Virgin olive oil, the vascular constricting endothelial effect of olive oil should be mitigated. We also would suggest that people with serious ASCVD follow Dr."

"Rather with great care and concentration, I took my megavitamin supplement, one recommended by my physician, and washed down with vitamin c enriched orange juice. Hopefully the antioxidants would prevail this one time, and I would be saved from my own bad behavior. I vowed the very next day to begin eating sensibly. It is common medical knowledge and common public belief that a balanced diet is essential for maintaining health. Among these essential nutrients are vitamins."

"The implications of this are obvious: vitamin c is yet another piece of the puzzle the helps us maintain a healthy weight and the SuperFoods that contain rich supplies of this SuperNutrient, like the orange and its sidekicks, are useful weapons in the battle of the bulge. Wild Salmon and the Power of Omega-3 The news that wild salmon can play a significant role in a weight reduction diet confirms the value of the primary SuperNutrient it contains—omega 3 fatty acids."

"It is well known that a vitamin c deficiency results in the body being more susceptible to respiratory illnesses such as colds. Other nutrients and trace elements are important: Vitamin E enhances the immune system, while a lack of Vitamin B6 can lower the white blood cells and reduce antibody production. But are we feeding our immune systems properly? Sadly, the answer seems to be 'No'. A survey into eating habits found that people were eating a wider variety of foods than they did ten years ago, but the nutritional content had not improved."

"It is therefore doubly important that asthmatics who smoke supplement their diet with vitamin c. Obviously the best solution would be to stop smoking altogether, and you will find suggestions to help you do so in Chapter 15. VITAMIN B6 Researchers studying the effects of Vitamin B6 on anaemic patients discovered that it was also beneficial to asthma. The study, which was led by Clayton L. Natta, MD, associate professor of medicine at Columbia University, found that the patients were reporting improvement in their asthma symptoms when they took 50 mg of B6 daily."

- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"It doesn't quite cover everything an asthmatic requires, though, so we recommend that in addition you should take extra Vitamin A and Vitamin D, preferably in the natural and concentrated form of a cod liver oil capsule, along with 2000-2500 mg of vitamin c using ascorbate acid or rosehip juice (see advice above on building up the dose slowly). Vitamin E in the form of a spoonful of wheatgerm daily is also good for asthmatics and if Vitamin P (bioflavonoids) improves your asthma you should add it to your daily supplement. The quantities recommended for supplementation are for adults only."

- Dr Ron Roberts, Asthma Controlled Naturally: Techniques That Work (Get the book.)

"On the other hand, Vitamin Bl, B2, B3, B6 and B-Complex may help. vitamin c is a must, as well as lecithin, calcium and magnesium. A lot of this advice can be found in literature, but Big Pharma is not necessarily interested in divulging this information. "Sports and exercises are the third components in fighting depression naturally. "When it comes to fear, again many people don't know that once more sugar may be the cowboy in the black hat. Special vitamins, calcium and magnesium are of utmost importance, as well."

"The effect of a bioflavonoid supplement is enhanced when combined with vitamin c. Although found in the rind, and to some extent, the juice and pulp of citrus fruits, Vitamin P is also contained in grapes, plums, blackcurrants, cherries and rosehips and the skin of bright coloured vegetables like carrots. However, these sources do not generally provide sufficient bioflavonoids in the daily diet to have an effect on asthma."

"After 15-30 minutes, he would have a glass of orange juice to provide an ample supply of vitamin c to assist in the regeneration of his connective tissue. vitamin c is not produced or manufactured by the body; it must be obtained from food. Allowing another 15-30 minutes, he would then drink his first glass of fresh vegetable juice. That was Norman's entire breakfast. Generally he ate one or two solid meals during the day, consisting of one of his small salads or no more than a pound of fresh fruit. As you can see, his quantities were small compared to the average eater."
