Vitamin C - Ascorbic Acid Powder
EU €10.59

400 g = approx. 400 servings
Distributer: Vitaking Kft.

1000 mg vitamin C per serving (half teaspoon)

Recommended Intake: Dissolve half a small teaspoon (approx. 1000 mg) in water, lemonade, or tea.

The food of today’s average person does not contain enough vitamin C. We could only get sufficient amounts from food if we were to move back into the rainforest. Surveys conducted not long ago show that we need 250 mg of vitamin C daily. Even more recent studies suggest that we should consume 500 mg per day. This amount dramatically reduces cases of cancer and cardiovascular diseases; in another words, the risk of death decreases greatly.

Vitamin C may be taken in large doses. Naturally, there is a limit where diarrhea may occur, but this requires an extremely large dose. Dr. Robert F. Cathcart has pointed out that the amount of vitamin C required and tolerated by the body proportionally increases with the degree of the illness. This means that a very serious illness may require 200 grams of the vitamin daily, whereas the same person may tolerate merely 10-15 grams when healthy without experiencing diarrhea.
According to Linus Pauling and colleagues, 10 grams of vitamin C daily markedly increases the survival time for patients with cancer. They claim that cardiovascular damage indicators may improve as a result of this same dose of vitamin C, in fact, proper functioning of the immune system requires this amount of the vitamin.
Being water-soluble, any excess ascorbic acid is easily excreted with water. It can therefore be said that it is a waste to consume too much ascorbic acid. There is such a view that we can thus produce the most expensive urine in the world. But just how much is too much? According to research done on a large group by Dr. Michael Colgan, a quarter of the people reached kidney excretion threshold at 1.5 grams of vitamin C, while more than half of the people reached this same threshold at 2.5 grams, and there were a few who’s limit was at 5 grams. However, if the daily intake of vitamin C was increased from 50 to 500 milligrams, the ascorbic acid levels within the blood plasma doubled, and they doubled yet again when 5 grams daily was reached.

The proper dose of vitamin C is greatly influenced by living conditions. If one consumes too much alcohol, lives in a polluted city, regularly takes medication containing salicylic acid derivatives, smokes, and lives under a lot of stress, then it is recommended to increase the daily dose of vitamin C to 5-10 grams. For those who smoke, each and every cigarette increases vitamin C requirements by 50 milligrams.
Vitamin C is indeed very special. According to Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, it should be taken not as a vitamin but as a food. He says that ascorbic acid should be looked upon as a vital household good; it should be sold by the kilogram and belongs in the same aisle as basic and vital foods such as flour, sugar, and salt. Szent-Gyorgyi consumed 1 gram of vitamin C until he was 84 years of age. He then caught pneumonia, so he increased his intake of the vitamin from 1 gram to 8 grams and he soon recovered. Dr. Michael Colgan, the famous nutrition researcher consumes 5 grams daily, while the two-time Nobel laureate Linus Pauling consumed a dose of 10-18 grams.
