The Seven Nutrient Parts That Make a Whole Food Vitamin C Complex are:
- P Factors
- K Factors
- J Factors
- Ascorbigen BioFlavonoid Complexes
- Ascorbic Acid (AA)
body cannot metabolize incomplete vitamins and minerals. To take only
Ascorbic Acid is like getting dressed to go outside, yet putting on
only your over Coat. Putting on only an over coat is not only
incomplete, but you are not dressed to properly function in the
activity that will be required of you.
you ingest only Ascorbic Acid, your body must search its own cells and
tissues for the P, K, J Factors, Tyrosinase and Ascorbigen Bioflavonoid
Complexes to match the Ascorbic Acid and to "try" to make the AA
compatible for the metabolic process. When it cannot do this, the end
result is a Vitamin C deficiency, now in more areas of the body than when you first took the Ascorbic Acid. So taking a vitamin supplement that contains
only one of the seven parts of a Vitamin C Complex, like Ascorbic
Acid, causes a deficiency in the whole complex Vitamin C. The
unmetabolized Ascorbic Acid settles in the cells/tissues and rots, then
over-time becomes toxic, a poison to the cells, etc., and can lead to
process occurs when people take anything that does not get metabolized,
whether it is taking an incomplete vitamin, like Ascorbic Acid, or
ingesting chemicals in the food additives used to preserve the shelf-life
of foods in containers.
you may say, but I have taken thousands of grams of Ascorbic Acid at once and I
got great results with my cold or flu. This is because Ascorbic Acid, the outer layer of Vitamin C Complex, is an anti-oxidant, which is beneficial to helping colds, flu (germs), and inflammation (toxins, chemicals and germs attacking tissue). However, when the body starts to metabolize the next nutrient in a Vitamin C Complex and it is not there, it will attempt to extract the other nutrients from other cells and tissue, deposit the unmetabolized Ascorbic Acid into the nearest fat cell or tissue, where it will rot and become a toxin (poison), or it will try to eliminate as much as it can through the liver/kidneys. One thing for sure, it won't be using it as Vitamin C in the body, and this whole process creates further Vitamin C complex deficiencies.
So though you may get temporary benefit from its anti-oxidant properties, the results you received are not
what you may think, especially, over the long-term. Dr. Smith calls taking an isolated Ascorbic Acid, a vitamin drug. Like a drug, it is addressing the symptoms and the body cannot metabolize it, so it becomes a toxin. Though as Dr. Smith states, it is a healthier drug than taking substances that are 100% chemical, it is still not giving the body what it needs to heal.
Taking 1000mg of AA
is like the analogy above -- you just put on more coats, but there is
nothing underneath. The weight of all the extra outer coats causes additional stress on the body. When you look at the nutrient contents of foods,
you will find that none of them contain 1000 mgs. of any nutrient.
Apple a Day - 1.5 mg to 1,500 mg. of Vitamin C Complex:
Ever wonder why we have the old adage, an Apple a day keeps the doctor a way. Beside the fiber which is good for the colon, since a clogged colon can cause a myriad of health challenges, a medium size organic apple contains 1.5 mg. of Vitamin C Complex. The miraculous workings of the human body can make up to 1,500 mg. of Vitamin C Complex from that 1.5 mg. in the whole food apple. So if Harry needs 350 mgs. today and Jane needs 950.86 mg., the human body will make the exact amount each person requires. Thus, whole foods, like the apple, that contain small amounts (1.5 mg.) of Vitamin C Complex demonstrate how the body can make its own mega-vitamins, and the fact that the
digestive system is not designed to metabolize mega-vitamins and
minerals, found in man-made formulations.
1-3 months of taking "incomplete" vitamins and minerals, most people
stop taking them. Because the vitamins and minerals seems to help them
initially, they wonder now why they don't seem to work any more? Then
the person moves on to look for another vitamin to help them instead,
or they try the next latest isolated nutrient receiving the
greatest amount of media attention -- thus they keep repeating this
cycle, until they eventually end up with a cupboard full of vitamin/mineral supplements.
This causes delays in getting to the real cause of healing, that only clinical nutrition testing of their biochemistry will identify and only taking complete whole food vitamins/minerals will address the real cause. Taking isolated vitamins and minerals, like Ascorbic Acid, will only create more deficiencies, biochemical imbalances and thus contribute to creating the nutrient-related diseases.
