Vitamin C – What You Don’t Know May Kill You AND Why The USDA is Wrong, page 1

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.

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.”

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.

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).

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.

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.”
