WHAT YOU HAVEN’T BEEN TOLD ABOUT THE USDA RECOMMEND ALLOWANCE FOR VITAMIN C:



The USDA recommended allowance is set at the level the body can tolerate over the counter supplements without getting diarrhea and barely enough to keep away infectious disease.


A tolerable upper limit (UL) of vitamin C was set at 2 grams for the first time in the year 2000, referencing this mild laxative effect as the reason for establishing the UL.

… Stone and Pauling calculated, based on the diet of primates (similar to what our common ancestors are likely to have consumed when the gene mutated), that the optimum daily requirement of vitamin C is around 2,300 milligrams for a human requiring 2,500 kcal a day.

Pauling criticized the established US Recommended Daily Allowance, pointing out that it is based on the known quantities that will prevent acute scurvy but is not necessarily the dosage for optimal health.

…the doses required to achieve blood, tissue and body "saturation" are much larger than previously believed.


en.wikipedia.org...


WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW:


  • When higher levels of Vitamin C are consumed it turns into a “healing therapy”.

  • You need high doses to stay healthy.

  • You need massive doses when stressed or sick.


A VITAMIN C DEFICIENY CAN CAUSE DEATH!



FOOD AND LIFE YEARBOOK 1939 – USDA:

"…when there is not a single outward symptom of trouble, a person may be in a state of vitamin C deficiency more dangerous than scurvy itself.

When such a condition is not detected, and continues uncorrected, the teeth and bones will be damaged, and what may be even more serious, the blood stream is weakened to the point where it can no longer resist or fight infections not so easily cured as scurvy.

It is true that without these infinitesimal amounts myriads of body processes would deteriorate and even come to a fatal halt.

Its neutralizing action on certain toxins, exotoxins, virus infections, endotoxins and histamine is in direct proportion to the amount of the lethal factor involved and the amount of ascorbic acid given.”


www.orthomed.com...


Yes, that read “vitamin C deficiency can be fatal”



“The number of bacteria that each white blood cell digests is directly related to the ascorbic acid content of the blood. This is one of the reasons why a lack of ascorbic acid in the body produces lowered resistance to infectious diseases.”

WHY YOU NEED LARGE DOSES OF VITAMIN C


Vitamin C is a cofactor in at least eight enzymatic (large molecules responsible for thousands of chemical interconversions that sustain life.

Reactions including collagen, which supports tendons, ligaments and skin, and is also abundant in cornea, cartilage, bone, blood vessels, the gut, and intervertebral disc.

… there are many tissues that maintain vitamin C concentrations far higher than in blood.

Biological tissues that accumulate over 100 times the level in blood plasma of vitamin C are the adrenal glands, pituitary, thymus, corpus luteum, and retina.[39]

Those with 10 to 50 times the concentration present in blood plasma include the brain, spleen, lung, testicle, lymph nodes, liver, thyroid, small intestinal mucosa, leukocytes, pancreas, kidney and salivary glands.

en.wikipedia.org...

YOUR BRAIN ON VITAMIN C:


Vitamin C is a vital antioxidant molecule in the brain. However, it also has a number of other important functions, participating as a co-factor in several enzyme reactions…

The highest concentrations of ascorbate in the body are found in the brain and neuroendocrine tissues such as adrenal, although the brain is the most difficult organ to deplete of ascorbate.

Combined with regional asymmetry in ascorbate distribution within different brain areas, these facts suggest an important role for ascorbate in the brain.

Ascorbate is proposed as a neuromodulator of glutamatergic, dopaminergic, cholinergic and GABAergic transmission and related behaviors.

Neurodegenerative diseases typically involve high levels of oxidative stress and thus ascorbate has been posited to have potential therapeutic roles against ischemic stroke, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and Huntingdon's disease.

The functions of ascorbate in the CNS and brain are numerous. Essentially effecting neurotransmitters, dopamine and glutamate (learning and memory transmitters) cholinergic receptor (addictions).

www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov...


BODY TISSUE THAT NEED HIGH LEVELS OF VIAMIN C:


Adrenal Glands – Release hormones in response to stress and affect kidney function.

Thyroid Glands – Controls how the body uses energy, makes protein and regulates metabolism.
The adrenal glands and the thyroid gland are the organs that have the greatest blood supply per gram of tissue. This may be one of the reasons lung cancer commonly metastasizes to the adrenals.

Pituitary - secretes nine hormones that regulate homeostasis that regulates PH, glucose, body temperature and the regulation of many bodily systems.

Thymus – Educates T-Cells which are critical to the immune system,

Corpus luteum – Involves the production of progesterone which is essential for establishing and maintaining pregnancy in females.

RETINA - We found that cells in the retina need to be 'bathed' in relatively high doses of vitamin C, inside and out, to function properly,” said Henrique von Gersdorff, Ph.D., a senior scientist at OHSU's Vollum Institute and a co-author of the study. “Because the retina is part of the central nervous system, this suggests there's likely an important role for vitamin C throughout our brains, to a degree we had not realized before.” (*1)

SPLEEN The spleen performs several important jobs such as preventing infection, destroying damaged blood cells and storing red blood cells and platelets. Certain vitamins play a role in keeping the spleen functioning properly. vitamin C helps your body to absorb iron, which reduces the chances of you developing anemia and an enlarged spleen. (*7)

LUNGS: Researchers conclude a high dietary intake of vitamin C or of foods rich in this vitamin may reduce the rate of loss of lung function in adults. This in turn may help to prevent chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. More and more studies are finding dietary factors play a key role in lung function. In particular, there is evidence that individuals with a high intake of vitamin C, A, and E tend to have higher levels of lung function. (*2)

LIVER: Vincent Zannoni at the University of Michigan Medical School has shown that vitamin C protects the liver. Even doses as low as 500 milligrams daily helps prevent fatty buildup and cirrhosis. 5,000 mg of vitamin C per day appears to actually flush fats from the liver. (Ritter, M. "Study Says Vitamin C Could Cut Liver Damage," Associated Press, October 11, 1986) And vitamin C over 50,000 mg/day (not a misprint) results in patients feeling better in just a few days, and actually eliminates jaundice in under a week. (*3)

THYROID: Researchers studied whether taking vitamin C along with levothyroxine medications (i.e., Synthroid, Levoxyl, Levothroid, etc.) could affect TSH levels. The results were quite surprising. The research showed that taking vitamin C along with levothyroxine reduced TSH levels substantially, by as much as 27%. (*4)

SMALL INTESTINE: There is compelling evidence suggesting an inverse relation between vitamin C intake and gastric cancer risk. Vitamin C is an important antioxidant and can react with nitrite, preventing the formation of N-nitroso compounds. (*5)

WHITE BLOOD CELLS/LEUCOCYTES: Cells of the body that fight against infectious disease and foreign materials. Evidence is accumulating that AA plays an important role in immunocompetence and in the antioxidant defense system. Recent reports link vitamin C status with lymphocyte blastogenesis, antibody response to viral antigens, and circulating levels of the immunemodulators complement Clq and interleukin-1. New data also demonstrate the importance of AA as a plasma antioxidant, and the in vitro measurement of the ascorbate free radical as a clinical index of oxygen radical attack has been suggested. (*6)

PANCREAS: Currently there are several studies showing promise in treating advanced pancreatic cancer with Vitamin C. The risk of pancreatic cancer declined significantly as intake of antioxidants increased among participants in a large case-control study. The magnitude of risk reduction varied by the quantity and types of antioxidants but reached a maximum of 67% in people who had the greatest intake of vitamins C and E and selenium.
The data suggested a threshold effect for selenium and a trend toward a threshold effect for vitamin E, as well as a significant inverse association between pancreatic cancer risk and serum levels of vitamin C. (*8)

KIDNEYS: Vitamin C and E supplementation saw a decrease in the elements that cause fibrosis, leading to considerably reduced glomerulosclerosis and kidney fibrosis. The study concluded “chronic antioxidant intervention in early experimental renovascular disease improves renal functional responses, enhances tissue remodeling, and decreases structural injury.” (*10) Dr. Levine suggested that the "upper safe doses of vitamin C are less than 1,000 mg daily in healthy people", although he noted that several earlier studies had not found any association between the incidence of kidney stones and the regular daily intake of 1,000 mg or more of vitamin C. (*9)

VITAMIN C CURES CANCER AND MORE:



VIDEO: IV Vitamin C = Liquid Gold

“A new study by Dr. Levine and colleagues was published in the Canadian Medical Association Journal in March 2006. In this study, the investigators carefully reviewed the clinical cases of three patients who responded especially favorably to high-dose intravenous vitamin C in an attempt to assess the clinical plausibility of this modality in cancer therapy. To accomplish this, the investigators followed the National Cancer Institute Best Case Series guidelines in their analysis. One case involved renal cancer with lung metastases that regressed following the intravenous administration of 65 grams of vitamin C twice per week for ten months. The second patient had invasive bladder cancer. He received 30 grams of vitamin C intravenously twice per week for three months, followed by somewhat irregular infusions for about four years. The third patient had B-cell lymphoma and received 15 grams of intravenous vitamin C twice per week for two months, followed by similar doses given less frequently.

All three patients experienced complete remissions.



Additionally, Dr. Drisko and colleagues at the University of Kansas reported in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition in 2003 two cases of women with late-stage ovarian cancer who experienced complete remissions after receiving 60 grams of intravenous vitamin C twice per week.”

TYPICAL MYTHICAL ARGUMENTS:



We can get suitable amount of Vitamin C through proper Diet. Answer: No you can’t.

The USDA recommended allowance for adults is 75mg-90mg.

Answer: This limit was only established because higher doses of pills and powder caused diarrhea. Not that the body couldn’t benefit from higher doses.

Oregon State University

“Dr. Mehmet C. Oz and Dr. Michael F. Roizen, co-authors of "You: The Owner's Manual", recommend a higher dosage.” Shoot for 1200 milligrams of vitamin C a day--spread between your diet and supplements throughout the day."*

*Be careful and do not overdo it. There are data that suggest that more than 2,500 milligrams everyday can have the contrary effect and may actually increase the chance of getting osteoarthritis.

Source



Vitamin C is water soluble.


Your body doesn’t store it.
Your body doesn’t make it.
You don’t get enough of it in your diet.
You can’t get enough of it through supplements.
Your body needs to be replenished daily
Your body needs more than the USDA recommended allowance.


LIPOSOMAL VITAMIN C – MEGA DOSE



What is liposomal? It is the process of binding 100% Pure Vitamin C Powder with a binding agent called Lecithin. This process allows the body to immediately absorb the Vitamin C into the body before it is eliminated out of the body through urine.


OPTIMAL DOSAGE:


The optimal dosage is complex. Because of this:


The amount of ascorbic acid taken… when a person is ill sometimes is over ten times the amount he would tolerate if well. This…indicates the unsuspected and astonishing magnitude of the potential use that the body has for ascorbate under stressful conditions.


www.orthomed.com...

Optimal dosage depends on you. Your health level, your stress level, weight, smoking, etc. In my opinion based on the research provided 1,000 mg – 2,000 mg is optimal while you are healthy. But if you get sick you may need 10x’s this amount.


TID BITS:



“In the Nurses' Health Study, premenopausal women with a family history of breast cancer who consumed an average of 205 mg/day of vitamin C from foods had a 63% lower risk of breast cancer than those who consumed an average of 70 mg/day”

A number of observational studies have found increased dietary vitamin C intake to be associated with decreased risk of stomach cancer, and laboratory experiments indicate that vitamin C inhibits the formation of carcinogenic compounds in the stomach

More recent research suggests that vitamin C supplementation may be a useful addition to standard H. pylori eradication therapy in reducing the risk of gastric cancer

Decreased vitamin C levels in the lens of the eye have been associated with increased severity of cataracts in humans. Some, but not all, studies have observed increased dietary vitamin C intake and increased blood levels of vitamin C to be associated with decreased risk of cataracts. . In general, those studies that have found a relationship suggest that vitamin C intake may have to be higher than 300 mg/day for a number of years before a protective effect can be detected.

Bottom Line:



The current USDA recommended levels (75mg -90mg) is just low enough to keep away Scurvy.

When recommending higher doses they found that it caused diarrhea.

But the true healing affects don’t kick in until doses are at 500 – 1500 mgs a day.

And you can’t get that high amount through over the counter supplements, diet, pills or powders.

YOUR MISSION IF YOU CHOOSE TO ACCEPT IT:



Make your own Lipsomal Vitamin C

Then had on over to:
ATS THREAD: I make my own liposomal vit C. This stuff is frickin AMAZING!!!!!

For a quick study:
ATS THREAD: Liposomal Vitamin C This Stuff is Amazing - Thread Summary

AND IF YOU HAVE PETS:
Results in veterinary medicine have been made in curing distemper and kennel fever in dogs with intravenous ascorbate. Although dogs produce their own ascorbate, they do not produce enough to neutralize the toxicity of these diseases.

=============================================================

Part of the difficulty many have with understanding ascorbate is that claims for its benefits seem too many.

============================================================

Most of these clinical results merely indicate that large doses of ascorbate augment the healing abilities of the body already known to be dependent upon minimal doses of ascorbate.

An Excellent Read: www.orthomed.com...

VIDEOS:



Vitamin C Curing All Cancers:





IMPORTANT TO REMEMBER:
You won’t receive these benefits with over the counter supplements in either pill or powder form. It must be in the form of “liposomal” in order to be immediately absorbed into the blood system.

You need to be getting a minimum of 500 mg daily and to get that much in pill supplements is going to give you diarrhea.

I took my first dose of liposil (sp?) Vitamin C today. Ordered it from Amazon to see if it worked before investing in the items to make it.

Today I've been much calmer, even in a high stress environment. I don't know if its due to the vitamin C, a spoke in my cycle, or aliens tinkered with my brain.

Today is also the first time in about three weeks I didn't need anxiety medicine.

Can't wait to see what happens after a week!

I'm lucky to log on and be one of the first to see this. Julie, you should be awarded a Medal of Health Awareness.

I think what's next could be the filing of a legal case in which a prisoner with many years on his or her sentence (to let the case wind through the courts) sues the State and Federal prison systems to provide he/she and all their fellow inmates with many grams of Vitamin C a day, saying that they all have a major and curable genetic disease. With a good lawyer and ample publicity of course. Does anyone know of someone serving quite a few years in prison and an interested lawyer who may want to do something good for humanity? Thanks Julie!

I have a tube of effervescent Vitamin C tablets with Zinc.

There is 1000mg of vitamin C, and 15mg of zinc per tablet.

It's one of those you dissolve in water then drink...would that be sufficient on a daily basis ?

Apparently states it is "rapidly absorbed" Any good ?

ANSWER:

NO. Because you body cannot absorb it quickly enough before it is eliminated in the urine.

Don't get me wrong - there is some benefit to that way, not not nearly at the levels I've stated.

The only way to recieve these levels of Vitamin C is through IV or Liposomal Vitamin C.

Since this is a new thread I think it bears repeating that humans and all other major primates (monkeys, and the rest of the apes) cannot make ascorbic acid in their bodies solely because of a genetic break. This coding error occurred sometime after we "were" lemurs, as lemurs do make it.

All other animals, marine life, birds, amphibians, insects, plants and even plankton produce it on an ongoing basis (guinea pigs and some species of bat are in the same boat as the primates, so it's a rare genetic flaw which has only occurred several times in various lifeforms).

Check out your dog or cats food, odds are it won't include ascorbic acid/vitamin C (it is added to some dog cans because, I believe, it's all that some poor people and the elderly can afford and is consumed by them).

I thought the low USDA amount was due to back-room lobbying by the orange and orange juice industries, which have to keep this information secret or seldom talked about so as to not lose profits and keep their customers in the dark. The diarrea effect goes away once the body gets used to it (mine kicked in at 5 mgs a day, solid form, and lasted about two weeks - although these threads say that the solid form is becoming old-school. What did Linus Pauling use for his ascorbic acid?). As always, thanks to Julie and others who are educating many people here at ATS about Vitamin C, and who knows where this momentum will end up as more of this data emerges into the overall society.

I guess you could increase the dose to two tablets a day, taken at different times, it does state to take this with food (preferably a meal).

These tablets are cheap as chips over here, and at 1000mg a pop, some benefit must transpire, not sure I could go the IV route, and definately don't think I am adventurous enough to try and make it myself.

Look forward to hearing how much others benefit from incorporating liposomal Vit C into their routines.


Out of interest, what is the highest concerntration of Vitamin C you can get over the counter in America ?

I used to work in a pharmacy many, many moons ago, we used to carry Ascorbic Acid tablets which were prescribed by GP's to patients, can't remember the dosage for the life of me, but I know it used to be prescribed, they actually used to have a bit of an orangey citrus smell.

I was reading this article the other day: www.medpagetoday.com...
which basically states that the use of antioxidants (which Vitamin C is), has no benefit in cancer prevention, even considering that it "much more likely causes than prevents cancer."
What is your opinion on this, OP?

Well even though he is a well respected doctor - his opinion is only that: "an opinion".

"Antioxidants may undermine metastatic cancer treatment and even contribute to its development, according to a hypothesis laid out by James D. Watson, PhD,"

Just a hypothesis with no clinical studies or background to back it up.

All the claims made above are mostly linked to clinical studies.

And it appears the article is specifically discussing "metatstic cancer". This would be very late stage cancers that may have very poor propects for recovery, which is not the basis of my OP.

But thanks for bringing it up - as I learn more everyday.
