Linus Pauling’s Vitamin C

Tuesday, December 8th, 2009

You may remember when Vitamin C was at its peak of popularity during the 1970s and 1980s.  Scientific studies had shown its outstanding ability to potentiate the immune system which prompted mass production of the vitamin to meet high demand.

Why all the excitement?  Because it was learned Vitamin C plays an important role in stress management, hormone synthesis, high blood pressure and atherosclerosis prevention, and the formation of bone, cartilage, and collagen, present in all connective tissue.

Perhaps you were one of thousands who filled their shelves with this vitamin.  Unfortunately, though, the manufacturers had no clue about the concepts of the human body’s electrical structure and believed that “Vitamin C is Vitamin C”, regardless of how you consume it.

So what happened?  Wasn’t Vitamin C as vital as once believed?  Why did the clinical studies show benefits to the immune system but the products on the shelves did not?  Would it surprise you that the answer lies in the body’s electrical makeup?
