(NaturalNews) Mega dosing with Vitamin C has proven to be beneficial in curing diseases and viruses - from the common cold to cancer. Many books by Linus Pauling and thousands of patient cases by Dr Levy, Dr Cathcart and Dr Klenner have proven Vitamin C to be miraculous in its ability to help the body heal. However, mainstream medicine does not recognize Vitamin C as even an adjunct to current practices.

Higher Vitamin C levels in the blood have been shown to reduce the risk of type 2 diabetes. A study from the American Medical Association Journal concluded that of 21,831 healthy individuals the top 20% with the highest Vitamin C plasma levels had a 62% lower risk of developing type 2 diabetes. It is likely that the increased levels of Vitamin C in the blood indicated a healthier lifestyle due to the amount of fruits and vegetables needed to obtain the higher levels of Vitamin C.

Vitamin C also has other positive effects on the body. Other studies have shown increased blood flow and reduced inflammation, lower cholesterol levels, lower blood pressure, improved cardiovascular health, reduced arthritic pain and many, many others. One 16 year Harvard study indicated supplementing with Vitamin C could save 300,000 lives annually.

62% is quite significant when considering Vitamin C is non-toxic and easily obtained from your daily diet. There are no known instances of death occurring from mega-dosing with Vitamin C. Vitamin C is also water-soluble. Its half life is approximately 30 minutes so it leaves the body rather quickly when not utilized by way of the kidneys. Supplementation and IV use can be discussed with a holistic practitioner or naturopath; however, adequate amounts can be obtained from diet alone. For instance, One cup of acerola cherries can have as much as 2000% of the RDA meaning 10 to 12 raw cherries could have as much as 1800mg of Vitamin C. One small kiwi contains over 115% of the RDA.

Many studies never utilize more than 2,000mg or 2 grams of Vitamin C. In this case the blood plasma levels were approximately 2 grams in the highest 20%. Eating a raw diet of fruits and vegetables will put most people at this amount or much higher, and supplementing with this non-toxic water soluble Vitamin can have nothing but beneficial results.
