Immune Boosting Power of Vitamin C

Favorite immune boosters what makes it so incredibly powerful it participates in just about every physiological process in the human body from birth to death from outside to inside vitamin C always has a role and making sure that you have enough of it in your diet is key to controlling the progress of just about any disease process we know and is really essential for health of just about everyone on the planet so what makes C such a powerful immune booster is it because it protects and regenerates the tissues that it keeps things from permeating the tissues it helps with tissue regeneration with proper regeneration because improper regeneration.

We call cancer it helps to prevent against inflammatory cascades it helps in normal maintenance functions it helps with detoxification it helps to prolong the more subtle interactions that go on in the body involving enzymes and hormones and all of those things that I mentioned further participate in other more myriad interactions scientists have been very busy trying to research all sorts of immune boosting things mm-hmm how come there’s nothing newer and better than vitamin C because what’s found in nature usually Trump’s anything that mankind can create is vitamin C something that people should take just on an ongoing basis again prophylactically to build up the immune system or is it best taken on an episodic basis when someone’s getting sick it should be part of one’s daily diet one can supplement additional vitamin C by itself in addition to that but vitamin C is really only as good as its cofactors and its co-conspirators cofactors like bio flavonoids and rooting and esprit and so you’re saying if I just take a vitamin C pill.

It doesn’t absorb on its own it needs all its other buddies that come in its fruits and vegetables it would be absorbed but it doesn’t work on the tissue as well there was an experiment that was done with dental students where they gave them gum injuries intentionally and then just gave them vitamin C and how so how long would we take to recover and then they gave them vitamin C and bio flavonoid injured the other side of the mouth and saw how long will we take them to recover and the recovery time was almost cut in half with the bio flavonoids so what’s the best way then for people to use vitamin C as an immune booster again on an ongoing basis just to be strong and then is it that effective if you have feel a cold coming on and you get a scratchy throat when a cold is coming on and get a scratchy throat you should take additional vitamin C it’s important to take vitamin C away from meals it’s important to take it spread out over the ourse of the day even though.

Ascorbic acid is an acid it’s relatively alkaline compared with stomach acid so you want to take it away from meals even though you need the food to make it work you need the food factors to make it work if you’re taking an additional vitamin C you need to separate it from that and there’s no problem in taking additional food factors to make it work better like dark berry juices are wonderful for vitamin C to work fruit pectin helps the bacteria in the large intestine to better appreciate vitamin C having the other antioxidant vitamins beta-carotene vitamin E and the mineral zinc potentiate the function of vitamin C so it’s very much a team player let’s imagine I’ve got a scratchy throat you want to supplement how much vitamin C should somebody take to really knock that out at the first place they would probably want between two and three thousand milligrams and they would probably with a scratchy throat wanted gargle and then swallow so if they had good exposure with sore throats taking adequate amounts of zinc is also very important and there are other botanicals that can be thrown in to help with the sore throat but that’s a good ballpark for vitamin C well vitamin C helped defend people from the ebolas and the enteroviruses or whatever virus du jour is running around yes absolutely.

We have to remember that as virulent as a pathogen is its ability to successfully attack an individual not only depends on that variance but also depends on an underlying host resistance this is something that we forget often times in the modern day and age of miracle drugs anybody that shouldn’t take vitamin C not usually except if you take too much it might affect your stomach and give you some diary well you take too much you can get diarrhea from it you can sometimes disturb the body’s normal clotting mechanisms you might upset the balance with other antioxidant vitamins but it’s pretty difficult to do that to yourself if it’s not to knock out a specific cold or flu what’s the standard amount of vitamin C that someone might want to take each day as a health boosting immune boosting supplement for yeah I’m between 1,000 and 2,000 milligrams is generally regarded as a good modest therapeutic level great thank you so much Andy the bottom line on vitamin C it is a great immune booster boring simple been around for forever but it’s effective now the key is you can’t just take vitamin C and be done with it works best when it has healthful fruits and vegetables that help support it give it all the other elements the vitamin C needs to be able to be absorbed and used properly in your body you can take it every day to be able to maximize your immune system once a 2,000 milligrams but.
