Uncooked foods in general, especially fruits, are high in vitamin C. As humans begin to cook and process foods, vitamins gradually were depleted from our diet, and we pay the price in disease and death from having to live with mild to a severe deficiency in vitamin C.
Vitamin C is a “scavenger antioxidant,” meaning its job is to go around in your body to neutralize free radicals, in order to protect cells against oxidative damage.
Lacking in this vitamin supply can lead to many ailments and diseases.
ASCORBIC ACID IN THE BODY
The amount of ascorbic acid in various tissues of the body differs, depending on how those tissues use the vitamin.
Adrenal gland: The adrenal glands contain more ascorbic acid by weight than any other tissues in the body.
When depleted of their ascorbic acid during stress, they are less able to protect the hormones from oxidation.
Thus, vitamin C is an important treatment in cases of adrenal exhaustion.
Leukocytes (white blood cells): Leukocytes require ascorbic acid for fighting bacteria and invaders.
When too little is present, they will retain whatever ascorbic acid they can get hold of, thus causing a deficiency in other parts of the body.
Up to 7 grams (7,000 mg) of ascorbic acid is required each day merely to satisfy the leukocytes’ requirement for vitamin C.
Eyes: The lens of the eye requires a large amount of ascorbic acid to keep it properly fluid and transparent.
In cases of deficiency, cataracts may form. Thus, large doses of ascorbic acid are useful in preventing and treating cataracts. Also, look up this article on how you can use castor oil to dissolve cataracts.
Brain: The brain is rich in ascorbic acid, but with age, the concentration decreases. Less than 1% of vitamin C taken orally gets into the brain.
As an anti-histamine: Ascorbic acid is needed to destroy histamine. It is needed in every condition where elevated blood histamine levels are a factor: burns, bites, hives and a variety of allergic conditions.
To dissolve cholesterol: Ascorbic acid dissolves cholesterol by increasing its solubility. It pulls calcium out of the plaques in the arteries. Ascorbic acid also helps strengthen the integrity and elasticity of arterial walls to prevent atherosclerosis.
Detoxify heavy metals: Small amounts of lead, mercury, and cadmium are excreted from the body in the presence of ascorbic acid. Thus, vitamin C in large amounts helps to detoxify the body of excess heavy metals.
LARGE DOSES OF VITAMIN C DEFEAT MAJOR DISEASES
Vitamin C has been shown to be helpful in fighting over thirty major diseases. Well-designed studies show that large doses of vitamin C improve both quality and length of life for cancer patients.
Since a majority of the population is not eating sufficient fruits and vegetables, the only way to close the gap is with vitamin supplements.
Vitamin C is one of the safest substances you can put in the human body, that is remarkably safe even in enormously large doses. Compared to commonly used prescription drugs, side effects are virtually non-existent.
