Someone recently sent this story to me entitled: " Vitamin studies
show some heart attack prevention".
While it is mildly positive I sent the following email reply. It expresses my opinion on a few things controversial so keep in mind it is my opinion. If you want to read a great book on it buy it here.
and other articles like it are pure bull ----. They deliberately test
things like Vit C, Vit E etc in ways they know are destined to fail.
hint is in this story itself.
HEART ATTACK BENEFIT
The research team, led by Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center scientists
in Seattle, did find a benefit: 3,741 women who took stress multivitamins -
formulas with higher doses of several B vitamins along
with extra vitamin C - were 25 percent less likely to have a heart attack.
they were to use a full range, non-synthetic Vit E, instead of the weakest form of E (alpha
tocopherol) they would see results in the studies. If they were
to use high dose Vit C in multiple doses throughout the day they would find
they could virtually eliminate heart disease.
In the simplest sense, Heart disease
is a form of scurvy. Atherosclerosis is the bodies
only way of keeping people alive as long as it can. the body repairs itself by placing large band aides
on arteries and vessels that are breaking down from a lack of ascorbate.
Vitamin C prevents collagen from breaking down. That is what the body has
to repair with cholesterol, calcium and other materials it has at hand.
Testing of Vit C by mainstream pharma/medicine is like testing birth control
pills in a way to make them fail. Give a woman 1 birth control pill per
month and then report that birth control pills don' t prevent pregnancy!
High dose Vit C, at least 5gr and preferably up to 10gr per day will not only
prevent CVD but in many cases reverse it, esp when combined with
Lysine, R-ALA and a full spectrum E with Tocotrenals.
I believe we need high
dose Vit C because the body is supposed to make its own but lost the ability in a
mutation. (so much for evolution being beneficial). We already have 3 of the 4
enzymes needed to make it. The 4th is in our genetic code but no longer
works. If we made as much as goats, based on weight, we would make
between 8 and 20 grams depending on how stressed we were. It is possible we also would
not suffer from obesity or diabetes as much because the 4 enzymes turn excess glucose into Vitamin C in our body. Since we don' t make it, we need to
supplement it. A lot of it! I prefer a buffered C with nothing added like bioflavanoids etc. That is my recommendation to you. No extra charge!! :-)
