Scourge of Scurvy!
Is it Scurvy or is it Heart Disease? This bad boy still reigns as the number 1 killer in the US… believe it or not all Vascular diseases are directly correlated to extreme chronic Vitamin C deficiencies! Each and every vascular disease from Arteriosclerosis, High blood pressure, Atherosclerosis, Peripheral artery disease is due primarily to plaque formation! When a leak or injury to the arterial system occurs the body calls Vit C to “fix” the leak. No band aid due to no Vit C? The body will then pull calcium to the injury to attempt to repair the leak. This creates plaque! To discover JUST HOW MUCH Vitamin C you personally require daily…Take 1000 mg in the L-Ascorbic acid form EVERY hour on the hour until you experience looser stools. The minimum Dr. Linus Pauling recommends is 6000 mg for EVERYONE daily! Whatever your personal dosage may be divide this into 4 to 5— 2000 mg “servings” or you will be in the bathroom more than you’ll be enjoying your life!
