As is known, vitamin C takes an active part in the formation of connective tissue, which favors the strength of the skeleton structure. In the absence of vitamin C, connective tissue loses the property of regeneration, and cells can not maintain their shape and perform the necessary functions.
For example, when myocardial infarction stops, the heart stops being supplied with oxygen and the necrosis of the heart muscle, the connective tissue must begin repairing the diseased muscle. Here there is a need for a large amount of vitamin C.
Many people have heard of "good" and "bad" cholesterol harmful. In particular, the brain cells need cholesterol, and if a person is sick, for example, with scurvy, the blood level of cholesterol is very low. These patients are treated with vitamin C in order to normalize the level of cholesterol. It is interesting that in healthy people, vitamin C does not lead to changes in the content of cholesterol. Thus, ascorbic acid normalizes the metabolism, that is, does not allow the level of cholesterol to take extremely large or small values of
Of course, one vitamin C is not enough to get rid of arteries from an excess of cholesterol. There is a need for a number of other substances, such as B vitamins, amino acids, unsaturated fatty acids, mineral salts and other substances.
Atherosclerosis develops with deficiency of calcium, magnesium, lithium, chromium, but the main thing in this pathology is the lack of ascorbic acid.
If a person for some reason is deprived of the possibility of consuming vegetables and fruits in its natural form, the vitamin C deficiency is practically assured. Achieving primarily satiety in the process of nutrition guides the person to protein and flour foods, however, this often results in chronic scurvy, this is more typical for the winter, when there is little fruit and greens. Accordingly, in winter and early spring, heart attacks and other cardiac pathologies are much more noticeable than in the summer or early autumn, when the body receives in due time the quantities of fruits and vegetables that are needed.
Vitamin C and oncology
At one time, the theme was that the vitamin C can cure cancer! Indeed, vitamin C promotes the regeneration of diseased tissues and cells, increases the efficiency of leukocytes, and the glands of internal secretion allows the production of hormones that enable the body to easily transfer various stresses. However, even the authors of the theory agreed that vitamin C causes the growth of the body's general resistance to any disease, including cancer, only when it is enough.
On the other hand, there are confirmed theories that vitamin C deficiency is one of the three causes of cancer, except for overabundance in the body of carbon monoxide, slagging of blood vessels and tissues. It is noticed that in the body of any patient with cancer there is a significant deficit of vitamin C and almost all these patients are on the verge of scurvy. In this process, it is best to use vitamin C in natural products, but also add a small amount of ascorbic acid in the powder, dissolving it in water. But it should be borne in mind that the excess of the dose of ascorbic acid more than four grams is able to initiate the development of kidney stones in some patients.
The properties of vitamin C
Vitamin C is able to suppress the action of any virus.
For example, sometimes viral inflammation of the liver occurs due to infection with blood transfusion and the first signs of the disease only notice three to six months. But if after a transfusion during half a month to appoint two grams of vitamin C per day, then this can be avoided. It is recommended that you even take three grams to six grams of vitamin C per day a couple of days before the blood transfusion procedure and two weeks after that.
Large doses of ascorbic acid can give very good results in pneumonia, inflammation of the meninges, "mumps", childhood paralysis. In this case, vitamin C does not have such contraindications and side effects as antiviral drugs, in particular, antibiotics and sulphides.
