Timed (sustained) Release Vitamin

With rare exceptions, the human being, primates and the guinea pig are the only animals that don’t make vitamin C in their liver all day. We humans must depend on certain foods or supplements to get an adequate supply of vitamin C and it is, therefore, spotty at best. Vitamin C is water soluble and doesn’t stay in our system very long; the body uses what it needs and discards the rest. Most of each day (and all night) we are deficient!

A severe deficiency leads to death; remember the early sailors that went months with no C at all. British doctor Lind surmised that lack of vitamin C was the problem. Limes were required on board the ships and scurvy disappeared. To this day, British sailors are called Limees.

Matthias Rath, M.D. surmised that without a 24 hour constant level of vitamin C in our bodies we will all suffer some mild degree of scurvy. Scurvy causes one to bleed-to-death from the “inside.” High pressure arteries, especially the coronary arteries, begin to leak and our wonderful built-in repair system puts a Band-Aid on the tiny leak. The Band-Aid is made of cholesterol and calcium and is called plaque. As plaque builds up over the years, it begins to clog and narrow our arteries and we call it Heart Disease, the number one killer.

Why-people-get-heart-attacks“Why Animals Don’t Get Heart Attacks, but People Do,” by Dr Rath, was written in 2003 and explains in scientific terms just how this happens; especially see pages 68–69. In this age of gene manipulation, scientists were able to turn off the gene (GLO) that makes vitamin C in the liver of a mouse. The mouse began to develop scurvy and its cholesterol skyrocketed. High cholesterol is not the cause of heart disease, but the consequence! The conclusion is: take a timed-release vitamin C every day.

My own personal testimony is appropriate at this point. Thirty five years ago I suffered with several colds, soar throats and flu every fall and winter. So, I attended a Prevention Seminar in Atlanta, Georgia put on by doctors for doctors. My father was a doctor. The lecture that changed my life (health) was presented by Emanual Cheraskin, M.D. and (you guessed it) he proved, with the use of a then newly perfected electron microscope, that timed release vitamin C will greatly boost ones immune system. I haven’t had a cold or flu since.

As an unexpected bonus, during the 35 years, my arteries have been scurvy free and I should have no plaque (heart disease)? You guessed it; I had a Coronary Calcium Scan (plaque scan) last June and got a perfect score of ZERO – no plaque, zilch, nada …

My doctor ridicules me. He won’t read a book by Doctor Rath or Doctor Levy or Doctor Cheraskin, but he will listen to a pharmaceutical salesman all day. So, I read him the famous quote from Arthur Schopenhauer, “All truth passes through three stages. First, it is ridiculed. Second, it is violently opposed. Third, it is accepted as self-evident.” I’m just a country boy going through life, but I’m already in stage three – I’m living proof!
