Vitamin C is one of the safest, most inexpensive anti-oxidants you can use daily to protect your health. It has been documented to help myriad's of ailments from cancer to helping chelate plaque and heavy metals from arteries. The most recent research just released from Boston's Tuft University studied data on 472 women aged 53 to 73. This particular study was to determine if Vitamin C had any effects on cataracts. They found that with women younger than 60, who had a Vitamin C intake of only 362 mg. a day (about 500% of the RDA) reduced the risk of cataracts by a whopping 57% !!! Also those who took Vitamin C supplements for more than 10 years had 60% lower odds of cataracts than those taking no supplements! Allen Taylor, a researcher with the Jean Mayer USDA Human Nutrition Research Center on Aging at Tufts, says, "This data adds more weight to accumulating evidence that antioxidant nutrients can reduce the development of forms of age related problems."

Folks, as you know, it is hard to find good evidence about the positive use of nutritional supplements now-a-days, at least in any mainstream press. Also we have had people report that the daily intake of Vitamin C has helped 'eye floaters'. Vitamin C deficiency, as many of you remember, can cause a disease called Scurvy.

SCURVY DISEASE - Vitamin C Deficiency - Scurvy, disease of human beings caused by a prolonged deficiency of vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, in the diet. It is characterized by progressive bodily weakness, spongy and inflamed gums, loose teeth, swollen and tender joints, and a tendency toward ecchymosis (This is the fancy-schmancy term for a bruise), or absorption by the tissues of blood from ruptured blood vessels (eye floaters, folks!) Anemia often occurs as a direct result of such hemorrhage. Lack of vitamin C in the diet prevents the formation of connective tissues that hold the body's structures together, such as tendons, ligaments, bone, dentin, and cartilage. The disease may appear in adults after about six months of complete lack of vitamin C.

Linus Pauling, two-time Nobel laureate and the world's foremost vitamin C proponent, entertained an overflow crowd in the Bldg. 66 auditorium with a talk on Vitamin C and Heart Disease. Read the article

The Pauling and Rath theory postulates that the root cause of atherosclerotic plaque deposits is a vitamin C deficiency. Pauling called this condition "chronic scurvy." It is normal in humans, but it can not happen in most other species. Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) is not a vitamin for most animals in the sense that it is not required in their diet. They make it in high amounts in their livers or kidneys. The sad fact is that we humans must obtain all our vitamin C from what we eat. (Unless we supplement, our diets contain less than 1/100th of what animals make, and we lose some in the gut during digestion.) According to the Pauling/Rath theory, less than optimal vitamin C results in less than optimal collagen. Without collagen, our blood vessels deteriorate. In an acute shortage, we die of scurvy. In a chronic shortage, humans develop atherosclerotic plaques. Pauling thinks most humans suffer chronic scurvy.

Vitamin C and Joint Health - Vitamin C is required for the production and maintenance of collagen, a protein substance that forms the base for all connective tissues in the body - bones, teeth, skins and tendons. Studies demonstrate that vitamin C is important for healthy joints.

Vitamin C and Eye Health - Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that helps to maintain healthy vision.

Vitamin C and Skin Health - Vitamin C is an important antioxidant that reacts with free radicals to prevent cellular damage. It is also vital for the biosynthesis, growth and repair of connective tissue and collagen.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid), a reducing agent, is necessary to maintain the enzyme prolyl hydroxylase in an active form, most likely by keeping its iron atom in a reduced state. The precursor molecule to the protein collagen, procollagen, contains an unusual amino acid sequence in that every third amino acid is a glycine and contains a high frequency of two amino acids not found in any other proteins - hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine. These later two amino acids are converted from proline and lysine, respectively, after the procollagen molecule has been synthesized. The hydroxylation of proline and lysine in procollagen is carried out by the enzyme prolyl hydroxylase using vitamin C as a cofactor.

A vitamin C deficiency results in an underhydroxylation of proline and lysine in collagen which results in a lower melting temperature of the resulting collagen fibers which causes a breakdown of the protein collagen needed for connective tissue, bones and dentin, the major portion of teeth. Collagen is a cementing material that binds cells together, and is an essential connective tissue protein in the body. Whenever the body is wounded, collagen glues the separated tissues together to form a scar.

A lack of collagen causes the walls of the body's blood capillaries to break down and hemorrhaging occurs in cells throughout the body. When capillaries lose the "glue" that holds them together, symptoms of scurvy appear.

An affected person becomes weak and has joint pain. Internal hemorrhages cause black-and-blue marks to appear on the skin (bruising). Gums hemorrhage and their tissue becomes weak and spongy. Dentin, which lies below the enamel and is part of the root of teeth, breaks down. Teeth loosen and eating becomes difficult and painful.
