VITAMIN C RESEARCH
In 1928, Dr. Szent-Gyorgy was
working with the adrenal glands of oxen and isolated a sugar-like
substance which was crystalline in nature and had similar properties
to the anti-scorbutic factors found in oranges and other citrus
fruit. Four years later the substance was identified and a synthesis
method was developed to supply the nutrient in large amounts.
In 1938, Dr. Szent Gyorgy and Sir Walter Haworth received the
Nobel Prize for their work.
The world's researchers set
about the task of ascertaining the properties of this important
discovery in biological systems. It was found that Vitamin C
acts as a reducing agent aiding in the prevention of aging cells
and tissues. This vitamin prevents improper oxidation of the
aqueous sections of cells such as cell membranes, proteins and
It was shown to promote healing
by acting as an intermediary in the synthesis of collagen by
aiding the synthesis of hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, these
being key component amino acids for the cross linking of collagen
fibers and the formation of body tissue. Vitamin C was found
to be essential to proper adrenal function. When the body is
under stress the adrenal gland may consume 200 mg of Vitamin
C every hour. A Vitamin C deficiency can impair the output of
important adrenal hormones such as cortisol which controls mineral
and electrolyte balance, healing, immune response, metabolism
and release of glucose from the liver.
Other researchers found that
Vitamin C also played a role in detoxifying the body and fighting
disease. Dr. H.N. Holmes found that ascorbic acid detoxifies
the effects of lead in the body. He felt that Vitamin C and its
metabolites, such as ketoglutaric acid, may act as chelating
agents aiding in the removal of lead and other heavy metals from
Vitamin C, when given in large
doses, has been useful in various viral and bacterial diseases.
Dr. F.R. Klenner cured cases of polio, encephalitis, and meningitis
in three to four days by giving sodium ascorbate in intravenous
doses between 50 and 150 grams in 24 hours. Dr. Klenner found
that this therapy was highly effective for all types of viruses
from herpes simplex to mumps.
Other researchers have shown
that Vitamin C when given in multigram doses can be effective
in fighting bacterial diseases. By taking 7 grams of ascorbic
acid every four hours, the body can maintain tissue levels of
10 mg% or greater. When given at this level, Vitamin C was shown
to retard the growth of tuberculosis, typhoid, pneumonia, whooping
cough, leprosy, staphylococcus and diptheria.
A researcher in Scotland, Dr.
Ewan Cameron, has demonstrated a definite slowing in tumor growth
by consuming doses of 10 grams of Vitamin C per day. He found
that the group of terminal cancer patients actually lived 4.5
times longer than the untreated group. Ten percent of the Vitamin
C control group actually lived 20 times longer.
Dr. G.C. Willis found, while
working with guinea pigs, that rapid onset of atherosclerosis
takes place in those control groups which are deficient in Vitamin
C. He also observed that groups given high cholesterol diets
also had a higher requirement for the vitamin in order to prevent
the onset of the plaques.
Vitamin C is essential for collagen, the cement
and elastin for connective tissue in the body. It hydroxylates
proline and lysine, making it possible to crosslink protein chains
which form the basis for connective tissue strength.
Vitamin C detoxifies toxins and
is effective against small viruses, bacteria of all kinds, certain
fungal diseases, drug withdrawal and heavy metal poisoning. Vitamin
C protects cells from oxidation, helps form bones and teeth,
heals capillary walls, strengthens blood vessels, cartilage,
ligaments, and helps prevent hemorrhages. Vitamin C builds intestinal
walls, bone marrow and joints.
Vitamin C assists in the secretion
of hormones from the adrenals, Epinephrine and norepinephrine,
and converts folic acid to folinic acids. It has both antihistamine
and diuretic actions and promotes healing. Vitamin C also strengthens
the lens of the eyes, thereby decreasing cataracts, inflammations
and infections of the eyes.
Bioflavonoids, Rutin and Hesperidin assist in connective tissue health and
are adjuncts to Vitamin C and all its properties.
Echinacea works as a blood cleanser. This herb
helps with boils, peritonitis, syphilitic conditions, bites,
stings of poisonous insects or snakes, diphtheria, tonsillitis,
pus formations, sore throats, sores, infections, fevers, blood
poisonings and for stomach toxins and inflammations. Echninacea
is an effective immune builder and is effective for allergies.
