WHAT IS VITAMIN-C WITH POLYPHENOLS?
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is much more than just an antioxidant to support our immune system as we've been taught.
It is primarily a redox balancer which means that it regulates the gain and loss of electrons of various molecules in various biological systems. For example, vitamin C is needed to make hydrogen peroxide by immune cells to kill pathogens. Vitamin C however, is also needed to neutralize any excess is made. Vitamin C is involved in renewing vitamin E levels.
We live in a microwaved world that we cannot escape, and this lowers our redox potential (Reduction-Oxidation) of our mitochondria. Quite literally, the mini-sun in our cells, , the mitochondria, requires a balanced redox state to generate energy and maintain the electrical effects of our bodies
Ascorbate is the negatively charged anion of ascorbic acid, and it is found in almost every tissue of the body. By taking ascorbic acid, we increase our plasma levels of ascorbate which then transfers into our tissues over the course of several months if supplementation is consistent.
Simply put, ascorbate helps replenish tissue redox status and primes us to be more resilient in our modern world.
For the past decade or more, ascorbic acid/vitamin C has been under attack while "whole food vitamin C" has been promoted in its place.
Not only does the "whole food C complex" have no legitimate scientific backing... as it ignores thousands of clinical studies proving the vast array of benefits ascorbic acid contains. One of the most famous chemists, Linus Pauling, who pioneered many of the chemical concepts still used today (such as electronegativity), focused heavily on supplementing more ascorbic acid.
Pauling had demonstrated that adequate ascorbate levels are necessary for good cardiovascular function, and collagen function. In other animals that still produce adequate amount of vitamin C (mind you, just as ascorbate and not the “whole food matrix”), we rarely see diseases of the cardiovascular system or collagenous diseases.
The Riordan clinic is another example of real time evidence of the use of high dose vitamin C for conditions like cancer, and viral diseases. There is mounting evidence of the role of vitamin C in properly establishing an immune response to combat these conditions.
