This note is for all of us that have, at one point or another in our lives, suffered from MS symptoms:
Did you know that REAL 100% organic vitamin C (not ascorbic acid) and EFA Oils protect (and rebuild) the myelin sheath? I reversed my MS (autoimmune disease Multiple Sclerosis) successfully 100% organic Vitamin C Complex and EFA Oils.
Medical authorities label MS, also known as Multiple Sclerosis, as an autoimmune disease (where the body is supposedly attacking itself). However, recent research shows that MS as well as other autoimmune diseases are really linked to infections, especially viral.
Neurodegeneration is a general term referring to the gradual degenerative conditions of the body, such as arthritis, heart disease, kidney disease, etc. The ultimate neurodegenerative disease is cancer, where multiple body systems have typically broken down and become infected and toxic. Key focal sites are often the brain and nervous system.
In neurodegeneration, there is commonly liver and intestinal toxicity, chemical and/or heavy metal toxicity (such as mercury, cadmium, etc), nutritional deficiencies, ESPECIALLY 100% ORGANIC VITAMIN C, (EFA Oils) ESSENTIAL FATTY ACIDS, MINERALS, ETC., interference with normal cell membrane integrity, esp. of nerve tissue, often due to consumption of trans fats, exterior interference fields reflexing to head and/or spine, esp. dental foci (such as undiagnosed infected teeth).
A True Plant-Source Vitamin-C!
Beware! About 99% of all Vitamin-C products on the market today are synthetically made ascorbic acid or variations such as calcium carbonate, calcium ascorbate, or calcium citrate. Despite marketing claims, these laboratory produced powders are not natural source Vitamin-C. They are chemically synthesized molecules manufactured in a test tube and are often made from genetically modified corn sugar. These synthetic molecules mimic only one component of the multitude of life-supporting nutrient complexes found in real plant source Vitamin-C. The proven health benefits associated with Vitamin-C are actually created by the naturally occurring, complex symphony of phytonutrients and supportive cofactors found only in whole nutrient sources, not in isolated, synthesized molecules. In short, test tube Vitamin-C cannot recreate the magnificent synergy of whole nutrient Quantum-Rx C Complex. Taking synthetic ascorbic acid can make the body more acidic over time and steals from the body's calcium reserve, resulting in poorer health. Do not be fooled by products that advertise ascorbic acid along with rose hips or acerola. Only an insignificant amount is natural Vitamin-C. Many people have stopped taking large doses of synthetic ascorbic acid because they find that just 2 to 4 Vcaps daily of Quantum-Rx C Complex gives them more effective strengthening of their immune system, plus it is naturally energizing and mood-lifting. It has the additional benefit of being nonirritating to sensitive stomachs and bladders.*
Vitamin-C: Nutrient Extraordinaire
Vitamin-C is truly a nutrient extraordinaire. Research abounds to show that Vitamin-C is a key vital substance required for many fundamental processes in the body, including the biosynthesis of collagen and the activation of the fat transporting molecule carnitine. It assists in the manufacture of the hormones adrenaline and cortisone. Vitamin-C acts as an electron transporter in many enzymatic reactions and helps protect the integrity of blood vessels. It is a promoter of healthy gums, an important factor in radiation protection, a regulator of cholesterol levels, a free radical detoxifier and an immune-specific boosting agent.
Does your Vitamin-C product contain real Vitamin-C?
Probably not! About 99% of all Vitamin-C products on the market today are synthetically made ascorbic acid or variations such as calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate or potassium ascorbate. Despite marketing claims, these laboratory produced powders are not natural Vitamin-C. They are chemically synthesized molecules manufactured in a test tube and are often made from genetically modified corn sugar. These synthetic molecules mimic only one component of the multitude of life-supporting nutrient complexes found in real natural Vitamin-C.
Vastly Superior Benefits
In the 1930's, Hungarian biochemist Dr. Albert Szent-Gyorgi searched for the elusive nutrient factor that prevented scurvy and thus, won the Nobel Prize in medicine for identifying Vitamin-C and its many health benefits. Although he successfully isolated the structure of the ascorbic acid molecule in his research, his studies clearly demonstrated the vastly superior benefits of consuming foods rich in natural Vitamin-C, rather than the synthetic version. For this reason, even though he was the discoverer of ascorbic acid, he did not recommend its use! In fact, Dr. Szent-Gyorgi repeatedly stated that the best results occurred when people consumed Vitamin-C in its natural form as present in whole foods.
"I take Vitamin-C for colds ... I prefer to get mine from Camu-camu, the amazing Amazonian fruit that has the world's highest Vitamin-C content."
— Dr. James Duke, USDA scientist and author of The Green Pharmacy
Today, many scientific studies have demonstrated Vitamin-C's important health enhancing and antioxidant benefits. What many people may not know is that like Dr. Szent-Gyorgi's research, much of this research has been conducted using foods high in Vitamin-C, not synthetic ascorbic acid supplements. This is a very significant distinction since many scientists and healthcare providers now emphasize the importance of obtaining all nutrients from whole plant sources such as found in Quantum-Rx C Complex. Taking synthetic ascorbic acid can make the body more acidic over time and steals from the body's calcium reserves, since the body must release calcium to neutralize the synthetic ascorbic acid. Higher acidity is associated with poorer health. Over time, taking synthetic ascorbic acid products may have negative effects on your health. Do not be fooled by products that advertise ascorbic acid along with rose hips or acerola - it usually contains only token amounts of the "real" nutrients. You are still getting mostly synthetic Vitamin-C. Many people have stopped using large dosages of synthetic Vitamin-C because they find that just 2 to 4 Vcaps daily of Quantum-Rx C Complex gives them more effective strengthening of their immune system, plus it is naturally energizing and mood-lifting. It has the additional benefit of being nonirritating to sensitive stomachs and bladders (unlike synthetic Vitamin-C). Although the amount Vitamin-C (per milligram) in Camu-camu appears low compared to synthetically derived Vitamin-C products, the effects on the human body are incomparable. Because of its natural nutrient symphony including bioflavanoids and other synergists, clinical evidence suggests that it is far more effective, milligram for milligram, than synthetic Vitamin-C (ascorbic acid) or esterified Vitamin-C. Healthcare practitioners report the extraordinary nutritional benefits for supporting the body's natural defense against internal invaders using only 2 to 3 Vcaps daily of Quantum-Rx C Complex which previously they had only achieved with mega doses of esterified Vitamin-C or mega doses of Lysine.
Get the Real Thing
Bursting with the proven goodness of 100% natural Vitamin-C sources, Quantum-Rx C Complex combines timeless nutritional wisdom with modern innovation. It contains a potent blend of organic nutrients, rich in natural Vitamin-C, along with proven nutrient synergists, to provide a superior natural Vitamin-C product that is safe and effective for the entire family (even pets).
The Richest Source of Natural Vitamin-C in the World
Camu-camu is a well known, prized fruit in Japan but is almost unknown in the U.S. Camu-camu berries are the richest source of natural Vitamin-C in the world. They contain up to 500,000 ppm of natural Vitamin-C as compared to oranges which provide only about 4,000 ppm. Camu-camu provides over 30 times more Vitamin-C than oranges, 10 times more iron, 3 times more niacin, twice as much riboflavin, 50% more phosphorus and is a significant source of potassium. It contains a full array of vitamins, minerals and amino acids which aid in the absorption of Vitamin-C, including the special phytonutrients terpenes, alpha-pinene and d-limonene. Quantum Nutrition's Camu-camu berries are carefully, and responsibly, hand-harvested from the Amazon rainforest then concentrated in a proprietary process that safeguards their naturally occurring Vitamin-C, bioflavonoids and other precious, synergistic co-factors.
Way Beyond Ordinary Vitamin-C
Quantum Nutrition blends its exclusive Camu-camu berry powder with other organic Vitamin-C nutrients, including South American Acerola berries (also called Barbados cherries). These berries are also very rich in Vitamin-C (up to 172,000 ppm of natural Vitamin-C); second only to Camu-camu. Acerola berries contain the special phytonutrients furfural, hexadecanoic acid and limonene. Another concentrated source of natural Vitamin-C included is Bulgarian Rose Hips, a well known source of Vitamin-C.
