Ultra Vitamin C Capsules with Flavonoids
Ultra Vitamin C is buffered to help prevent stomach upset. Blended with additional Rose Hip extract and 420 mg of flavonoids, this is a great value for 200 easy to take capsules.
Adding flavonoids to your vitamin C is like adding powerful high test racing fuel to your car. Flavonoids destroy free radicals. Flavonoids provide antioxidant protection and suppress inflammation.
Linus Pauling, Ph.D., was the only person ever to win two unshared Nobel prizes. In 1968, he stated that people's needs for vitamins and other nutrients vary markedly and that to maintain good health, many people need amounts of nutrients much greater than the Recommended Dietary Allowances (RDAs). He believed that megadoses of certain vitamins and minerals might well be the treatment of choice for some forms of mental illness. He termed this approach "orthomolecular," meaning "right molecule." After that, he steadily expanded the list of illnesses he believed could be influenced by "orthomolecular" therapy and the number of nutrients suitable for such use.
Vitamin C and the Common Cold
In 1970, Pauling announced in Vitamin C and the Common Cold that taking 1,000 mg of vitamin C daily will reduce the incidence of colds by 45% for most people but that some people need much larger amounts. (The RDA for vitamin C is 60 mg.) The 1976 revision of the book, retitled Vitamin C, the Common Cold and the Flu, suggested even higher dosages. A third book, Vitamin C and Cancer (1979) reports that high doses of vitamin C may be effective against cancer. Yet another book, How to Feel Better and Live Longer (1986), stated that megadoses of vitamins "can improve your general health . . . to increase your enjoyment of life and can help in controlling heart disease, cancer, and other diseases and in slowing down the process of aging." Pauling himself reportedly took at least 12,000 mg daily and raised the amount to 40,000 mg if symptoms of a cold appear.
After the age of 65, women face double the risk of stroke (CVA). People with the highest vitamin C intake were 30% less likely to have a stroke than were those with the lowest intake according to a Dutch study. Smokers with the highest C intake cut stroke risk by 70%.
People of retirement age who took supplements of both vitamin E and C daily saw their risk of Alzheimer's disease plummet by almost 80 per cent, a new study shows.
It appears that when the two vitamins are taken in high doses they work together to protect neurons. The use of these antioxidant vitamins may offer an attractive strategy for the prevention of Alzheimer disease. It appears the high dose of vitamin available in individual supplements is what provided the additional protection.
Vitamin supplements - and vitamins E and C - have been touted for years as effective against a host of conditions, including cardiovascular disease and some forms of cancer.
Vitamin C provides protection against viral infection by strengthening connective tissue and neutralizing toxic substances released by phagocytes. Its direct antiviral action appears to be through the suppression of virus replication and the annihilation of virus-infected cells. Research confirms that vitamin C is antiviral, antibacterial and anticancer. It is known that PGE1, a prostaglandin that plays a major role in regulating T cell function, is enhanced by vitamin C. Vitamin C enhances one of the complement enzymes, C1 esterase, without which the entire enzymatic cascade of complement would not occur and non-self cells would not be destroyed.
Tests show that taking as little as 1200 mg of vitamin C per day increased T cell activity, while 500 mg per day increased glutathione levels by 50%. Glutathione is extremely important to immune function because it eliminates toxic substances from the body, enhances cellular oxygen and activates enzymatic reactions.
A recent study conducted on residents of the small town of Mount Healthy, OH, supports the immune-enhancing properties of Vitamin C. Over the course of 50 days, more than 400 residents agreed to supplement their regular diets twice daily with 500 mg of vitamin C. At the end of the study, which was conducted during the winter season, 74% of the residents reported no symptoms commonly associated with colds, while 62% reported feeling healthy and vital.
The incidence of ovarian cancer may be reduced with increased consumption of dietary flavonoids, according to researchers from Brigham and Women's Hospital and the Harvard School of Public Health. The study looked at food intake surveys and ovarian cancer data from 66,384 participants in the Harvard Nurses' Health Study, which collected health data from 121,700 women over a period of 30 years. This is the first prospective analysis of flavonoid intake and ovarian cancer incidence.
Research shows vitamin C plus flavonoids improves gingival health in a group of people with gingivitis. There was less improvement, however, when vitamin C was given without flavonoids. Evidence suggests that flavonoids by themselves may reduce inflammation of the gums.
Vitamin C is known as the most versatile supplement in helping the immune system, colds, infections, viruses, bacterial toxins, allergies and cholesterol. Femhealth's Ultra C is buffered to help prevent the stomach upset many people experience with other brands. Blended with additional Rose Hip extract and 420 mg of flavonoids, we feel this is a great value for 200 easy to take capsules.
