Probably the most widely used of all vitamin supplements, vitamin C is a
powerful antioxidant that has a myriad of functions and helps strengthen the
immune system. It became famous in the 1970s when Nobel Prize-winning
scientist Linus Pauling advocated daily mega doses (8-10 grams) of vitamin C
to prevent and ease the symptoms of the common cold.
Many clinical studies
that show vitamin C is superior to over-the-counter medicines in reducing the
symptoms, duration, and severity of colds.
As an antioxidant, vitamin C helps
fight cardiovascular disease by protecting the linings of arteries from
oxidative damage. There is strong epidemiological evidence and some research
that vitamin C can help prevent cancer. Studies have shown it is also
beneficial in protecting the body against the effects of smoking and air
Vitamin C plays a protective role in cancer. Studies show that those who
regularly eat foods high in ascorbic acid are at a lower risk of developing
various malignancies, especially those of the stomach and esophagus.
Some of the positive claims for Vitamin C are: 1) fights cancer; 2) boosts
immunity against colds and other infecting diseases including AIDS; 3) lowers
cholesterol and combats cardiovascular disease; 4) speeds wound healing; and
5) helps maintain good vision. Click here to

Vitamin C is the most talked about and most studied vitamin. It naturally
reinforces hundreds of defense mechanisms in the body. With the exception of
man, almost all other animals are able to manufacture their own. However, we
must obtain it from food or supplements. Individual needs for Vitamin C vary
from person to person and from day to day, according to the types and amount
of stress that is experienced.
Dr. Linus Pauling, the world's leader in
Vitamin C research, consistently took 6,000 mg per day for years, which he
considered to be the absolute minimum, even though the U.S. Recommended Daily
Allowance (RDA) is only 60 mg per day. Most doctors and scientists agree that
we routinely need more since the RDA was determined to be enough to only
Those who live in cities or near busy highways may suffer from
carbon monoxide and lead poisoning. In large doses, Vitamin C has been shown
to have a protective effect of pulling the carbon monoxide away from the
hemoglobin in the red blood cells, which allows the oxygen to become attached
and be carried to the cells. Pregnant women who take adequate amounts of
Vitamin C have less problem with leg cramps, fluid retention and toxemia.
It has been proven that Vitamin C increases certain biochemical reactions
in white blood cells that kill bacteria. There are many bacteria, viruses and
allergies which can be associated in various ways with colds. Vitamin C does
not provide complete protection against all of them. Nonetheless, your odds
are probably better while taking it.
If you smoke one pack of cigarettes a day, you have about 25% less Vitamin
C in your blood than non-smokers. Those who drink a lot of alcoholic beverages
need Vitamin C, because the liver depends on it to produce an enzyme that
helps take alcohol out of the bloodstream. Aspirin depletes the body of
Vitamin C and blocks the blood cells from absorbing it. The more exposure to
drugs and chemicals, the more Vitamin C is needed to minimize harmful effects.
Diabetics seem to lack the ability to transport Vitamin C across their cell
membranes, which can result in serious blood vessel complications, which is
common among diabetics. Dr. George Mann of Vanderbilt University states that
"cataracts may be a late consequence of marginal intakes of ascorbic acid
(Vitamin C), with the diabetic being more prone to cataracts because of their
lack of insulin."
Vitamin C is necessary for healthy metabolism of skin and connective
tissues. Collagen is the major component of skin and connective tissues in our
bodies and is the "glue" that holds our bodies together. It cannot be
manufactured without Vitamin C. As long as our tissues have the strength
provided by collagen, they are able to resist the invasion of infections.
Defective collagen assumes a watery consistency and leaks into the
bloodstream. The cells are then easily permeated allowing all kinds of
diseases can run rampant.
Dr. Constance Leslie of Pindersfields Hospital in Wakefield, England and
many other doctors believe that Vitamin C causes cholesterol to come out of
arterial plaque into the blood. It can then be used by the liver to make bile
salts for digestion.
The brain has a greater concentration of Vitamin C than most other tissues
in the body. Dr. Pauling proved that insufficient Vitamin C can impair
mentality. There is strong evidence that ascorbic acid helps brain
functioning. Click here to order.
Studies show that Vitamin C reduces the danger of Mercury, Cadmium and Lead
poisoning. With cars emitting at least 500 million pounds of lead into the
atmosphere each year, it is estimated that over 200,000 American children are
victims of chronic lead poisoning. It is difficult to avoid Cadmium. You get
it from passive cigarette smoke, white bread, coffee and tea, to name a few
sources. The FDA reported in Science Magazine that Vitamin C protects against
Vitamin C protects against nitrosamines, cancer causing chemicals that are
made in the stomach from nitrates and nitrites in foods like hot dogs, bacon,
luncheon meat and smoked fish.
Life Plus is careful to include a broad spectrum of bioflavonoids in
Vitamin C Plus, as these substances occur with Vitamin C in nature. Bioflavonoids
are involved with every major metabolic process of the body, and they act
synergistically with Vitamin C.
Many experts believe that teenagers
should probably take at least 2,000 mg per day, and most adults may do best on
a minimum of 4,000 mg per day or more. Don't forget to include other Life Plus
products you take that contain Vitamin C in computing your total consumption
such as TVM Plus,

that drinking lots of water
is vital to keeping your body and stomach in proper order. You
need to drink at least one-half ounce per pound of body
weight daily. So, for example, if you weigh 180 pounds, you
would drink 90 ounces (about 3 quarts) of water. During
exercise or hot weather, you should increase your water
intake significantly, depending on how much you sweat, how
long you exercise, or how hot the temperature is.

Dr. Batmanghelidj writes: "Histamine is an important
neurotransmitter that primarily regulates thirst mechanism
for increased water intake. It also establishes a system of water rationing
for the available water in the drought-stricken body."
When the body is dehydrated,
histamine production increases significantly. Histamine's
primary job is to make sure that the available water in the body is
preserved for the most vital functions. Thus, increased
histamine is not the problem; it's one of the body's
ingenious adaptations for survival.
