Sept. 13, 2019; Dateline: Utopia, Texas; by Briana McDonald (Natural Health Staff Writer Silver Bulletin e-News) The importance of Vitamin C in your diet simply cannot be over-emphasized. Not only can it prevent illness and disease but it can also effectively treat everything from the common cold to shingles to Ebola. Pretty impressive right? Due to the fact that Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that your body does not store it, nor does our bodies produce it as many animals do, we must get what we need from our food. These foods would be your citrus fruits, broccoli, tomatoes, watermelon, cabbage, bell peppers-the list goes on. It is best to get it from natural sources, but you can also effectively supplement for Vitamin C if you’re unable to get what you need from your foods. The bottom-line is that Vitamin C may well be the most important vitamin in our bodies.
So what does Vitamin C do? You need vitamin C for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth. It also helps the body absorb iron from nonheme (non meat) sources.
Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, along with Vitamin E, beta-carotene, and many other plant-based nutrients. Antioxidants block some of the damage caused by free radicals, substances that damage DNA. The build up of free radicals over time may contribute to the aging process and the development of health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, and Arthritis.
High-dose oral Vitamin C therapy, using upwards of 1,000 times the U.S. Daily Reference Intake (DRI), has been shown in clinical studies to heal diseases such as polio, tetanus, cardiovascular disease, hepatitis, AIDS, and cancer. The ability of these diseases to run their course is disabled when given such large quantities at a time. Though the body can only assimilate a certain amount of Vitamin C at a time when taken orally, high-dose, time-released oral Vitamin C supplementation is a great way of maintaining health and preventing and healing disease. When it comes to combating serious diseases, intravenous Vitamin C therapy is the most efficient delivery method because the body is able to more effectively assimilate very high doses of the vitamin in this way.
Since we all know an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure, the question is; with the cold and flu season coming on, are you getting enough Vitamin C in your diet? Just remember when trying to heal almost any health issue and to keep your immune at optimal levels, the importance of Vitamin C cannot be understated. If you aren’t sure about your Vitamin C levels, there are simple and easy to use urine paper tests that can give you an accurate measurement.
