For many years ascorbic acid, or vitamin C, has been known to aid the immune system in fighting off colds and the seasonal flu. The fact is we need certain amounts of vitamin C for our bodies to function optimally, because unfortunately human beings do not have the ability to make this vitamin in our bodies. In contrast to vitamin C fighting off the seasonal flu, what’s not so mainstream is it’s other preventable, reversible, and curable benefits.
Here I want to dig a little deeper and tell you how it can save your life.
Maybe you already eat a diet rich in fruits and vegetables or get vitamin C through other means of supplementation. If you do not, here are the reasons to do so.
But first, like many other vitamins – we must understand that there is such thing as too much. Research suggests that the body can use only 200-250 milligrams a day, however it is believed that when taken in higher doses it can encourage healing in the body on all levels when ill.
When taking vitamin C regularly it helps to rebuild strong connective tissue such as ligaments, tendons, and cartilage. Vitamin C also aids in building stronger linings of the arteries for blood flow and allows our healing system to repair wounds.
Vitamin C is an anti-cancer agent and in some cases it can even be used in cancer treatment. Despite what research suggests, one cancer patient took up to 100,000 mg of vitamin C to fight off the cancer cells in her early stages of cancer. There were no side affects and no hair loss.
Stay away from the chewable tablets, hard tablets, and fancy brands. Try to stick to a powdered form of vitamin C where ascorbic acid is the primary ingredient. Vitamin C in a supplemental form is relatively inexpensive. It is non-toxic but the body cannot use high doses, unless being used in the event where your body is demanding it. Do not expect immediate effects from vitamin C. You are to take it long term as a defense for your natural healing system and promote healing and well-being.
Your body wants you to be well. Let it do it’s job!
In your good health,
