Much More than a Typical Vitamin

Ascorbic acid, better known as vitamin C, is best known for preventing the common cold and scurvy.
"Vitamin C" is the buzzword whenever winter approaches.
But there is a common misconception that ascorbic acid (or vitamin C) is just another vitamin...
METABOLE'S VIEW ON ASCORBIC ACID
After decades of studying ascorbate and using it in our naturopathic practice, I want to share our view and experience on this subject with interested readers.
First, the name "vitamin C" is questionable.
It implies that ascorbic acid's function ranks with other known vitamins such as B12, B6, and others.
Ascorbic acid is much more than a typical vitamin.
It is a basic molecule and its role changes as it attaches to different elements.
Whenever I discuss ascorbate acid ("vitamin C"), I ask the following question: air and water are not classified as vitamins – why then is this critical substance classed as another vitamin?
When ingested orally it acts as a nutrient.
When introduced intravenously it acts as a therapy or medicine.
South Africa is blessed with several medical doctors trained in using intravenous ascorbate.
The treatment protocols have proven to be valuable in treating cancer, aids, infections and many other diseases.
When used orally, a buffered complex works better since it will not be as acidic as ascorbic acid.
The sensible maintenance dosage for adults is on average 2 000 mg per day. This can vary from person to person. The maximum dosage (therapy) is the bowel tolerance level:

IMPORTANT FUNCTIONS OF ASCORBATE
“There are over 10 000 published scientific papers that clarify that there is not one body process (such as what goes on inside cells and tissues) and not one disease or syndrome (from the common cold to leprosy) that is not influenced by – directly or indirectly by Vitamin C.”
- Drs Emanuel Cheraskin, Marshall Ringsdorf and Emily Sisley.
Our bodies are the best source of information we can use.
If we engage in some regime that makes us feel and function better we have a sound feedback mechanism we can rely on.
