VITAMIN C - ASCORBATE
Any human completely cut off from Vitamin C will quickly grow sick with scurvy. It takes about 30 days. If they still don't get Vitamin C they will die within 90 to 120 days.
Lucky for us, most other plants and animals on earth make their own vitamin C.
Vitamin C is needed for the growth and repair of tissues throughout the body. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. Vitamin C is needed for healing wounds, and for repairing and maintaining bones and teeth.
For optimum health humans at bare minimum should be getting 3 or 4 sizable doses of vitamin C everyday.
Vitamin C deficiency is at the root cause of most diseases today. The only mammals that don't make vitamin C are the human, the monkey, and the guinea pig. It's of the utmost importance to our health that we are flush with vitamin C.
There are many forms of vitamin C but they are all forms of ascorbic acid. The word ascorbate comes from anticorbutic, meaning to fight scurvy, A- (meaning "No") and Scorbutus (Scurvy.) Ascorbic acid is one form of vitamin C. Ascorbate is another form. And yet another form of scientifically made vitamin C is L-Ascorbate. I recommend only L-Ascorbate as a supplemental form because of it's bioavailability to our cells.
Scurvy does not occur in most animals as they can make their own vitamin C. However, humans and other higher primates lack an enzyme (L-gulonolactone oxidase) necessary for such synthesis and must obtain vitamin C through their diet.
Initial symptoms of vitamin c deficiency, and scurvy can be:
Feeling very tired and weak all the time (fatigue)
A general sense of feeling "out of sorts" – such as feeling irritable and miserable all the time
Pain in your limbs – particularly your legs
Our body microbiome has a very delicate balance. There are 10 times more bacteria in our bodies than our own cells. One course of antibiotics could turn the bacteria in the gastrointestinal tract from predominantly aerobic to anaerobic bacteria. Anaerobic bacteria are fermenting cells and feed predominantly on sugars. When we have cravings for foods like chocolate, or a sweet treat, it is our body’s microbiome commanding us to feed it.
Some anaerobes incorporate mercury into their cell structures, and in the case of candida or even spirochetes from Lyme, these bacteria, and protozoans suspend our body's burden of mercury; they literally protect the organs of the body from mercury. If we kill of this bacteria, the body can have a severe adverse reaction to the released mercury. In the Lyme disease world this is called a Herxheimer’s response, but it really should be called acute mercury poisoning.
There are two kinds of mercury poisoning; chronic and acute mercury poisoning. The one thing that should never be done is to move from a long term chronic state of mercury poisoning into an acute state.
There are different kinds of vitamin c. The ascorbic acid is the most acidic one, and least likely to be absorbed by cells. A buffered ascorbate is a better one, and the best is L-Ascorbate because it is almost 100% absorbed.
Knowing your bowel tolerance is of the utmost importance to your health. Bowel tolerance is the limit at which your body can retain vitamin C without detoxing through the intestines if the form of diarrhea. To find you bowel tolerance you can simply raise you vitamin C levels over time until you find this point. However, the best way to do this would be to do THE BUFFERED ASCORBATE CLEANSE
Fermenting Sauerkraut Produces Vitamin C
The bacteria create vitamin C and certain B vitamins as by-products of their metabolism. They digest parts of the cabbage and as part of their digestion the vitamins are made. Sauerkraut helped save the lived of many sailors during the golden age of sea exploration.

In the three centuries prior to 1800, it has been estimated that scurvy killed at least two million sailors. It was characterised by rotting gums, foetid breath, swelling limbs, malaise and hemorrhaging.

It's important to understand the use of the word Natural when it comes to vitamins, especially vitamin C. It is 10,000 times more likely a "Natural" vitamin c is going to be tainted with mercury than an L-Ascorbate. It has to do with the chemical process used to produce vitamin C. Twenty percent of chlor-alkali (caustic soda) processes in the USA are mercuric cell processes. We have NO idea how it's being made in CHINA.
VITAMIN C: NATURAL vs SYNTHETIC
This is a great article by Diane Dean that explains why L-Ascorbate is the best in the world.
MERCURY IN CORN SYRUP
Be careful with products using a chlor-alkali process. Coca-Cola has a number of chlor-alkali factories in the United States. Coca-Cola with HFCS has mercury in it.
PERQUE L-ASCORBATE CLEANSE
To do the cleanse you should only use L-Ascorbate from Perque. Be sure to read this entire link.
PERQUE POTENT C GUARD ASCORBATE POWDER
This is a link to their brand of L-Ascorbate on Amazon. I highly recommend this brand. It is made in the United States and has NO fillers.

This is a link to their brand of L-Ascorbate on Amazon. I highly recommend this brand. It is made in Switzerland and has NO fillers.
By doing the buffered L-Ascorbate cleanse regularly, you will train your body to send stored toxins to the intestines.

I recommend products that are natural to our well-being, and only ones that can be found in the grocery or health food store. Everything I recommend I do myself. Everything I do is on my website, and everyone can use my site to get back to good health, naturally. However, some people can be very deep in the woods, allergic to just about everything, while suffering from chronic pain and inflammation. Many times their intestines are a wreck, and their body is putting on weight to protect itself from toxins. Getting people back to a state of well being, naturally, takes time, patience, attention to detail, and experience.
