Vitamin C: is ascorbic acid and serves as a common enzymatic cofactor in mammals.


The history of Vitamin C is well established; however, the delivery aspects of this vitamin is anything but settled both within the alternative and conventional medical communities.

To begin, the Vitamin C molecule is too large to pass through the gut wall and very little of it is absorbed. Moreover, when large amounts are taken under the mistaken idea that the body will make use of it, either stomach pain or damage to the intestinal wall occurs.

Loose bowel is often the side effect of the inability to absorb and use ascorbic acid. Buffered products are avoid some of the side effects, but do nothing for absorption.

Common over the counter Vitamin C products are generally useless because they cannot overcome the absorption issue. A superior approach exists where the Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) molecule is ‘nano-scaled’ to reduce its molecular size so it be embedded in a fatty carrier to transport it as a fat.

The liver processes the fatty carrier and releases the Vitamin C directly into the blood stream as if injected via a needle IV style which is the only other way to get Vitamin C into blood and elevate serum levels.

The body uses the fat ‘carrier’ for repair and regeneration of brain cells and tissue repair after the Vitamin C is released for double benefit.

The focus here is ‘absorption’ not quantity; meaning, if you can elevate blood serum levels of Vitamin C, two times a day, the body automatically uses it as a cofactor for synthesis of ‘collagen’,

Collagen is the basis of 95% of the body’s connective tissues (bone, cartilage, muscle, ligaments, tendon, skin and gums) without which the body ages for the inability to repair and regenerate.

Young Again Club offers its members the most viable way to enjoy the benefits of Vitamin C including its anti-oxidant qualities.

So-called ‘natural’ Vitamin C is a somewhat meaningless description commonly used within health circles; meaning, whatever benefit natural Vitamin C provides, it is not from the ascorbic acid itself, but from the cofactors hesperidin, rutin and bioflavonoid cofactors that accompanied the Vitamin C assuming it was a so-called natural form.

Urban legend and medical folklore ignore important details when it comes to ‘cures’; for example: the story of sailors of old suffering from scurvy who became known as limeys because they ate limes and lemons to avoid or ease scurvy.

The experts assumed it was the juice that contains Vitamin C (uptake is limited) and ignored the rind for the cofactors the rind contained. Another example of popular myth is that bubonic plague was the product of fleas from rats rather than weak, inflamed, sick, body terrains incapable of defending itself.

Those who died of the plague were unhealthy; the strong survived. Head lice is another example. Lice do not infest everyone exposed to them, rather those with toxic body terrains and excess waste that offers a food supply and environment for the lice to live and multiply.

[Instead of using toxic chemicals for head lice, use plain, raw, undiluted apple cider vinegar. It kills lice safely without exposure to toxic chemicals.]
