Sodium Ascorbate Is The Best Form Of Vitamin C
Recommended as the best is Sodium Ascorbate.
Vitamin C that is soluble in fat is Ascorbic Acid through esterification process (Vitamin C Ester). Vitamin C Ester can protect fat cells, whereas Ascorbic Acid Vitamin C that are water soluble do not protect fat cells.
Vitamin C has very important role for fat metabolism, immunity and healing functions, endocrine function, anti-poison and anti-allergy functions, as well as antioxidant functions, the best therapy for almost all the virus, including polio, hepatitis and herpes.
Improves collagen production, important for stimulating neurotransmitters, including dopamine, serotonin, acetylcholine.
The level of Vitamin C in the tissue is lower as compared with that in the blood stream. Because of this, “opti-dosing” (as in optimum dose allowance) is necessary.
There is no cases of toxicity due to overdosing of Vitamin C. Diarrhea is an indicator of overdose of Vitamin C.
In Australia, doctors are known to prescribe more than 300gram per day for serious cases.
The formation of the oxalate kidney stones is not caused by the consumption of Vitamin C. Cathcart’s research actually found the opposite to be true, that patients who have the oxalate kidney stones tended to not have the problem again after being on Vitamin C.
The recommended supplementation for Vitamin C is above 500 mg per day (Optimal Dose: 6.000-12.000 mg per day). Below 500 mg per day will result in the opposite effect from the antioxidant effect of Vitamin C.
