|VITAMIN C RESEARCH
In 1928, Dr. Szent-Gyorgy was working with the adrenal glands of oxen and isolated a sugar-like substance which was crystalline in nature and had similar properties to the anti-scorbutic factors found in oranges and other citrus fruit. Four years later the substance was identified and a synthesis method was developed to supply the nutrient in large amounts. In 1938, Dr. Szent Gyorgy and Sir Walter Haworth received the Nobel Prize for their work.
The world’s researchers set about the task of ascertaining the properties of this important discovery in biological systems. It was found that Vitamin C acts as a reducing agent aiding in the prevention of aging cells and tissues. This vitamin prevents improper oxidation of the aqueous sections of cells such as cell membranes, proteins and enzymes.
It was shown to promote healing by acting as an intermediary in the synthesis of collagen by aiding the synthesis of hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, these being key component amino acids for the cross linking of collagen fibers and the formation of body tissue. Vitamin C was found to be essential to proper adrenal function. When the body is under stress the adrenal gland may consume 200 mg of Vitamin C every hour. A Vitamin C deficiency can impair the output of important adrenal hormones such as cortisol which controls mineral and electrolyte balance, healing, immune response, metabolism and release of glucose from the liver.
Vitamin C is essential for collagen, the cement and elastin for connective tissue in the body. It hydroxylates proline and lysine, making it possible to crosslink protein chains which form the basis for connective tissue strength.
Vitamin C detoxifies toxins and is effective against small viruses, bacteria of all kinds, certain fungal diseases, drug withdrawal and heavy metal poisoning. Vitamin C protects cells from oxidation, helps form bones and teeth, heals capillary walls, strengthens blood vessels, cartilage, ligaments, and helps prevent hemorrhages. Vitamin C builds intestinal walls, bone marrow and joints.
Vitamin C assists in the secretion of hormones from the adrenals, Epinephrine andnorepinephrine, and converts folic acid to folinic acids. It has both antihistamine and diuretic actions and promotes healing. Vitamin C also strengthens the lens of the eyes, thereby decreasing cataracts, inflammations and infections of the eyes.
Vitamin A promotes protein, nucleotides, glycoprotein and lipoprotein synthesis. It prevents keratinization of skin and eyes, protects all mucous membranes and prevents cross linkageof proteins. It promotes resistance to disease, protects cells from foreign antibodies and stimulates the immune system. Vitamin C also helps develop Retinal, a coenzyme with rod and cone opsin (an optic protein) to trap light in vision and trigger neurological response in the optic nerve.
Vitamin A is essential for the genito-urinary and gastrointestinal tracts, and is critical for the growth and maintenance of both epithelial cells and the capillary walls in all cells.
Vitamin E prevents oxidation of Vitamin A, unsaturated fatty acids, cholesterol, vitamin B-l and the amino acid Methionine. It protects the red blood cells in the blood stream from abnormal oxidation, prolongs cell life, heals all tissue and organs in the body and is needed for formation of the nucleus of each body cell, including DNA and RNA. It protects the body from aging, protects the structure and function of muscle tissue and capillary walls, prevents sterility in males, helps circulatory diseases and menopause and is necessary for reproduction.
Sorbitol is a natural sweetener from fruits, berries, seaweed and algae, and has properties similar to Vitamin C. It is also good for peripheral neuropathy.
