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.

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.
“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
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”.
