Endo-Met ENDO A-C
Vitamin C is one of the most important vitamins. The isolated vitamin was discovered by Albert Szent-Gyorgyi and his team in 1932. It supports adrenal gland activity, and can assist the immune response. It is involved in detoxification, and is needed for collagen synthesis and connective tissue integrity. It is also an anti-oxidant and a mineral chelating agent.
It is found naturally in almost all vegetables and fruits. In addition, a little is found in some meats, and in milk products, as well. The following is a compilation of notes regarding vitamin C and nutritional balancing science.
FOOD-BASED, NATURAL AND SYNTHETIC VITAMIN C
The assertion by some vitamin companies that synthesized ascorbic acid is just a stimulant and no good is incorrect. The idea that one must take a naturally-derived or food-based vitamin C is absolutely false.
Plain synthetic ascorbic acid will support adrenal activity, it will lower copper, and it will support connective tissue health.
HAVE HUMANS LOST THE GENE TO PRODUCE VITAMIN C
Some authors have written that one must take high doses of vitamin C because humans have lost the gene to produce vitamin C in large quantity. This is incorrect. Here is a quote on this subject:
“In 2008, researchers at the University of Montpellier discovered that in humans and other primates the red blood cells have evolved a mechanism to more efficiently utilize the vitamin C present in the body by recycling oxidized L-dehydroascorbic acid (DHA) back into ascorbic acid which can be reused by the body. This mechanism was not found to be present in mammals that synthesize their own vitamin C.”
OTHER TOPICS RELATED TO VITAMIN C
Cooking and vitamin C. Some people say that a mainly cooked food diet, as used in nutritional balancing programs, has no vitamin C in it. This is not true.
Cooking vegetables and meats will leave a little vitamin C in the food. In addition, I suggest raw dairy products. These contain some vitamin C. Even pasteurized butter and cheese contain a little vitamin C. Together, these provide adequate vitamin C for most people.
Fruit-eating. Those who eat fruit, we find, are overloaded with vitamin C. This tends to lower and remove a number of critical minerals from the body.
Forms of vitamin C. I do not recommend Ester C, lyophilized vitamin C, or other forms of vitamin C such as the ascorbates. These are all very yin, more costly, and do not seem to offer any significant advantages.
helpful for allergies, infections, capillary fragility such as that seen with spider and varicose veins, and other situations in which these vitamins and bioflavinoids are needed.
