Alkalised Vitamin C 2018-01-07T14:11:30+00:00

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a cofactor in multiple enzymatic reactions including collagen synthesis. Humans are unable to produce vitamin C because a gene for this ability has mutated and no longer works properly. Therefore, the only way to get vitamin C into our body is via a food source or a reputable supplement. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant which prevents or reduces damage caused by free radicals.      (click orange words)

Deficiency of vitamin C results in the defective formation of collagen and connective tissues in the skin, cartilage, carnitine, catecholamines, dentine, bone, and blood vessels; and can also lead to premature aging, cardiovasuclar diseases, inflammatory diseases and fatigue.

Dr Linus Pauling

“I think we can get almost complete control of cardiovascular disease, heart attacks and strokes by the proper use of (vitamin C and lysine) … even cure it.” Linus Pauling

Dr Linus Pauling was the leading chemist of the last century and, arguably, the greatest ever American scientist. He is also a 2 time Nobel prize laureate. He coined the term orthomolecular (meaning “right molecules in the right concentration”) which characterized an approach to the prevention and treatment of disease and attainment of optimum health that was based on the physiological and enzymatic actions of specific nutrients, such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids present in the body. Dr Pauling is well known for his work on megadozing with Vitamin C, which he believed and proved with thousands of cases to be the one nutrient to support total healing in the body.

Dr Linus Pauling and his associate Dr Matthias Rath, published a definitive thesis on the root cause, treatment, and actual cure for all forms of cardiovascular disease (CVD), including congestive heart failure, heart disease, and stroke. The Pauling and Rath heart protocols in lower dosage levels will prevent cardiovascular disease and in higher dosages will actually reverse arterial plaque build up and reverse heart disease!

Heart patients moving to the Pauling Therapy commonly avoid open-heart surgery and angioplasty. Almost without exception patients experience rapid recovery.

Their research shared that an insufficiency of vitamin C damages blood vessel walls. This damage triggers a biological “repair” process in which cholesterol-carrying lipoproteins deposit in the artery walls like a biological form of mortar.

With time, this “repair” process can lead to a buildup of atherosclerotic plaque. The most effective “repair” molecule is a large, sticky substance known as lipoprotein (a) [Lp(a)].

It was discovered that supplementation of vitamin C effectively decreased the deposition of Lp(a) along the artery walls and consequently decreased Lp(a) blood levels.

A side effect of vitamin C deficiency is high or low blood pressure. Hypertension is mainly associated with CVD and caused when the congestion of arteries and the blood vessel constricting effects dominate.

Hypotension is mainly due to weakness and loss of elasticity in the veins, leading to (Peripheral vascular disease) PVD. PVD is a blood circulation disorder that causes the blood vessels outside of your heart and brain to narrow, block, or spasm.

This can happen in your arteries or veins.

Stress causes 80% of all disease…

People who have high levels of vitamin C do not show the expected mental & physical signs of stress. What’s more, they bounce back from stressful situations faster than people with low levels of vitamin C. In one study researchers subjected 120 people to a stress test. Half of those studied were given 1,000 mg of vitamin C. It was noted that higher levels of  cortisol and high blood pressure were significantly greater in those who did not get the vitamin supplement.

Cortisol is a hormone released by the adrenal glands in response to stress. Cortisol triggers the “fight or flight” response to stress. But like many emergency-alert systems, the stress response comes at a considerable cost.
Among other effects, frequent exposure to high levels of stress hormones exhausts the body’s physical resources, impairs learning and memory, makes people susceptible to depression and ages the body prematurely.

The highest concentration of vitamin C in the body is stored in the adrenal glands.

When you are faced with a stressful situation, your vitamin C is rapidly used up in the production of cortisol. In adrenal fatigue, your adrenal glands “panic” when they don’t have enough vitamin C available, and they release MORE cortisol. This not only increases your immediate anxiety, but as this state of high cortisol is prolonged, it wreaks havoc on your blood sugar, blood pressure, and contributes to the dreaded accumulation of belly fat.

When Vitamin C is readily available in your body, your release less cortisol, which means you feel less stressed and it repairs the damage to your body by any cortisol released. Cortisol, can age you very quick, resulting in hair loss, grey hair, wrinkled skin, fatigue and weak and painful joints and bones.

What makes our
Vitamin C so special?

Our Vitamin C comes with FREE alkaline powder that is specific to alkalise/neutralise the ascorbic acid so that the acid in the Vitamin C is harmless in your body when ingested. Most, if not all Vitamin C available on the market today are not neutralised. You are doing more harm than good to your body. We are the only company in South Africa to have this available to the public.

The role of Vitamin C in Diabetes

A 2007 study looked at 84 patients with type 2 diabetes who randomly received 500 or 1,000 mg of vitamin C daily for six weeks. The researchers discovered that the group supplementing with 1,000 mg experienced a decrease in fasting blood sugar, triglycerides, (LDL) and insulin levels. The dosage group with 500 mg did not produce any changes.

Vitamin C and glucose have a similar chemical structure. When both are high they compete with one another to enter the cells. If there’s more glucose around, less vitamin C will be allowed into the cells, creating a deficiency. Not only is it important to keep your C levels up, it’s just as crucial to keep your blood sugar levels stable with a low-glycemic diet.

University of California Berkeley, has shown that vitamin C can lower concentrations of C-reactive protein (CRP), a powerful predictor of heart disease & diabetes. For adults with high level of CRP, a daily dose of vitamin C lowered levels of the CRP after 2 months. The improvement is comparable to that of cholesterol-lowering drugs.

No Collagen without Vitamin C

The synthesis of collagen, for which vitamin C is essential, proceeds in the body as one of its major manufacturing enterprises.
Collagen is a protein found in the skin, bones, teeth, blood vessels, eye, heart, and, in fact, essentially all parts of the body. Collagen as strong white fibers, stronger than steel wire of the same weight, and as yellow elastic networks (called elastin), usually together with macropolysaccharides, constitutes the connective tissue that holds our bodies together. Vitamin C is essential to the manufacture of collagen. It appears that vitamin C is involved at every step in the synthesis of collagen in the body. A deficiency of vitamin C means a dificiency of collagen, which can lead to joint and bone pain, (osteoarthritis, osteoporosis), blood vessels becoming weak, gums bleeding, teeth falling out, and the immune system deteriorating.

Reverse Aging with Vitamin C

Collagen makes the skin strong and elastic, its degradation leads to wrinkles, loose and ageing skin. Even more important for health is the effect on the blood vessels. Deficiency causes them to lose their elasticity and causes distension and slack walls so that the valves no longer close properly. The blood stagnates in the lower legs and pools to form varicose veins. Now we can also understand sagging breasts and enlarged prostates as chronic vitamin C deficiencies rather than just advancing age.

DHT (Dihydrotestosterone) can cause of male-pattern baldness. It appears that prostate enlargement is the result of DHT combined with a weak venous system (PVD) while male-pattern baldness is due to DHT in a congested arterial system or CVD. All of these problems – ageing skin, rigid arteries, aneurisms, varicose veins, sagging breasts, enlarging prostates and male-pattern baldness are signs of chronic vitamin C deficiency. Increased vitamin C can help prevent these “signs of aging”.

Remember that Vitamin C is one of the most potent antioxidants. It has the ability to reverse damage to skin caused by free radicals.

Vitamin C is the ‘muscle’ of the immune system.

Vitamin C is a highly effective antioxidant that protects the body’s cells against reactive oxygen species that are generated by immune cells to kill pathogens. Primarily through this role, the vitamin affects several components of innate and adaptive immunity; for example, vitamin C has been shown to stimulate both the production and function of  white blood cells. Neutrophils, which attack foreign bacteria and viruses, seem to be the primary cell type stimulated by vitamin C, but lymphocytes and other phagocytes are also affected. In support of vitamin C’s effect on neutrophil function, supplementation with vitamin C-rich SunGold Kiwifruit (2 kiwifruit/day, providing approximately 259 mg/day of vitamin C, for four weeks) increased plasma and neutrophil vitamin C concentration and improved neutrophil chemotaxis and oxidant generation in 14 young men considered to have suboptimal vitamin C status (<50 µmol/L) at baseline.

The Powerful
Vitamin C Flush

Health begins in the gut; and, thanks to antibiotics, chlorinated water, bad diet, food allergens, and vaccinations, almost everyone has a major problem in their gut. Chronic gut inflammation, raging like an out-of-control forest fire, causes digestion issues, skin eruptions, weak immunity, allergies, autoimmune illness and a host of other health issues. The Vitamin C Flush is the fire hose needed to subdue the flames so the gut can begin to heal itself.

Although the Flush results in an evacuation of the bowel, and will certainly solve any immediate constipation problems, it isn’t the same as “colon cleansing.” Colon cleansing involves taking specific agents that remove gunk from the colon. The Flush is different; its primary purpose is getting vitamin C into the tissues. It does however, remove metals and toxins and supports the good bacteria in your gut to grow again. A vitamin C flush delivers very high doses of vitamin C in order to achieve tissue saturation – and in the process, supports the immune system and rapid healing. A vitamin C flush can be done every season or whenever you are feeling run down or even after surgury or illness.
