Things You Didn’t Know About Vitamin C

By Heather Callaghan

Suzanne Humphries is a specialist in internal medicine and kidney disease and is also known for speaking out about vaccines after having had a lucrative career in nephrology. Few people know that she gave a brilliant lecture on the crucial role of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) over in Sweden this year.

You won’t typically hear this type of info from your doctors unless they made great efforts to further study nutrition, anatomy and orthomolecular medicine. Mainstream thoughts on this life-giving vitamin don’t often go further than “enough to keep us from Scurvy.” But this dismisses that there are other reasons for vitamin C and that disease starts sooner than seeing the effects of a full-blown disorder like Scurvy.

Here, Humphries shines light on the confusion surrounding vitamin C, its best sources and supplementation. This lecture isn’t just about the liver (towards the beginning), but a whole array of human functions that few knew had anything to do with vitamin C requirements – fascinating!


She answers the following questions (from the description):

But should you take extra vitamin C? How much and in what quantity and shape? Are there dangers and problems with this? Can you get kidney stones from vitamin C? We all need vitamin C and it is most famous for its importance in the immune system. It is important as part of the prevention and treatment of a variety of diseases. A common perception is that a rich foods contain enough vitamin C, but is it really? How much do we need? In what form should it be used? Is it good to take in higher doses in different diseases? Can it be combined with conventional medicine? It may be important to you and your health? Dr. Humphries has a historical perspective on vitamin C and its importance in various diseases, but also describes its role in health in general. Source: http://www.ortomolekylar.se/2015/01/v…

    Thank you for this wonderful enlightening and informative article and video. Am so thankful that I use Vitamin C in my daily regimen after eating breakfast. I eat fruits and veggies everyday that are high in Vitamin C but still supplement. It can’t hurt.

    As recommended by Linus Pauling, I’ve been taking 15-20,000 mg [3-4 tsp] of vitamin C powder [ascorbic acid] every day for 4 years, which stopped the aches and pains that began after 50, has vastly improved the health of my hair and skin, keeps me cold & flu free through the brutal New England winters, has stopped my toothache pain every time [w/ NO antibiotics] and bestows innumerable other less overt health benefits. And best of all [ha ha] it works as a miracle youthing facial, by mixing 1-2 tsp vit C powder with 1-2 tbsp aloe vera gel, applied for 15 minutes 3x week. You can feel and see it working immediately, increasing blood flow and rejuvenating and tightening the skin’s surface & HELLO NEW COLLAGEN! And at almost 58, it keeps me blessedly regulah. It IS necessary to increase the dosage slowly from 1/4 tsp. to 3+ tsp over 1-2 weeks, to avoid tummy upset and the -ahem- runs. It’s the only vitamin that isn’t toxic in high doses and is absolutely in a league of its own! http://profiles.nlm.nih.gov/ps/access/mmbbkt.pdf
