VITALITY with VItamin C!

Can I just say that vitamin C ROCKS?!


Benefits of vitamin C:

*Prevents illness, especially colds and flu as the seasons change. If you feel yourself coming down with something, do a vitamin C flush: taking 500-1000mg of vitamin C powder every 30 minutes to bowel tolerance…basically until you’re on the toilet making it rain! Also helps with bacterial infections.

*Protection from the sun, reduces wrinkles and improves elasticity of the skin. Vit. C is required to produce collagen!

*Speeds up wound healing: from minor cuts to broken bones, deep wounds and sprains. Vit. C supports ligaments, tendons and muscles.

*Helps your repair itself under stress. Sufficient levels of vitamin c is required for the synthesis of stress hormones.

*Helps lower cholesterol by boosting conversion of cholesterol to bile salts, which can be easily eliminated from the body.

*Improves blood flow. Esp. good for those with heart problems, angina pectoris, congestive heart failure and high blood pressure.

*Regulates glucose in diabetics.

*Helps cancer treatment (check with your doctor!): enhances cancer-killing effects of drugs used in chemotherapy. Also a strong antioxidant to combat free radical damage created from drugs during chemo and radiation.

*Improves asthma: vitamin c is an antihistamine!

*Reduces allergies.

*Reduces arthritis by supporting collagen production and reducing inflammation.

*Detoxifying! A powerful antioxidant to combat free radical damage. Works with NAC (N-Acetyl Cysteine) to support liver detox.

The average person needs at least 1000mg per day separated in doses. Vitamin C is eliminated via urine every 2-3 hours and needs to be replenished often. Those with high stress eliminate faster, so more vitamin c is necessary to support the body.


Vitamin C is found in papaya, red bell pepper, broccoli, lemon, orange, strawberries, guava, cantaloupe, Brussels sprouts, pineapple, kiwi and more. Vitamin c is easily destroyed by heat, so eating fresh and uncooked is most beneficial. Orange juice doesn’t count! It’s processed and destroys the vitamin C content leaving the end product of straight sugar!!!!
