Vitamin C - In the News

  1. Proton pump inhibitors (i.e. Nexium® and *Prilosec®) reduce the bioavailability of dietary vitamin C...
    Unnaturally low stomach acid (elevated pH) is a double whammy. Low acid leads to infection, because intestinal flora find it easier to travel up the gut to the lungs. Acid blocking drugs also block vitamin C at the same time, which hampers the immune system.

  4. HARVARD: "VITAMIN C 'ONLY SUBSTANCE OUT OF 880 TESTED' THAT TRANSFORMS MOUSE STEM CELLS INTO HEART MUSCLE CELLS"...
  5. 16-Year Harvard Study Finds Single Vitamin C Pill Would Save 300,000 Lives Annually...
    "The study published July 16, 2003 in CARDIOLOGY tracked more than 85,000 nurses over 16 years found that those taking vitamin C supplements (360 mg) had almost 30 percent lower risk of getting heart disease. The number of deaths from heart disease every year is estimated at 950,000.

    Interestingly, dietary intake of vitamin C seemed to have little effect on coronary heart disease risk. But if women used vitamin C supplements, their risk was reduced by 27 percent."

  6. John Hopkins University has now found that combining vitamin E and vitamin C supplements can dramatically reduce the risk of Alzheimer's ...bad link UK: Jul 28, 2008: Higher Plasma Vitamin C Levels Linked with Lower Diabetes Risk: Study of 21,831 from 1993 to 2005 So, why did it take 2.5 years for this to be published in a medical journal?

  14. Vitamin C Improves Dark Circles
    Japanese researchers found vitamin C may improve dark circles of the lower eyelid (DCLE) by thickening the eyelid dermis and concealing dark coloration due to congested blood.
  15. Positive Effect of ascorbic acid (vitamin C) on prevention of hypercholesterolemia induced atherosclerosis in rabbits...
    The notion that oxidation of lipids and propagation of free radicals may contribute to the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis is supported by a large body of evidence.

    Low dose of ascorbic acid (0.5 mg/100 g body weight/day) did not have any significant effect on the percent of total area covered by atherosclerotic plaque. However, ascorbic acid when fed at a higher dose (15 mg/100 g body weight/day) was highly effective in reducing the atherogenecity. With this dose the percent of total surface area covered by atherosclerotic plaque was significantly less (p < 0.001). This suggests that use of ascorbic acid may have great promise in the prevention of hypercholesterolemia induced atherosclerosis.

    Co-treatment of rats with VIT C and quercetin inhibited the induction of MNPCEs by MSG (P < 0.001). VIT E failed to protect against MSG-induced genotoxicity. The results indicate that dietary antioxidants have protective potential against oxidative stress induced by MSG and, in addition, suggest that active oxygen species may play an important role in its genotoxicity.

    "Once again, the Berkeley Skate Park is ailing, and the cure could be something that's in everyone's medicine cabinet -- vitamin C. Marc Seleznow, acting director of Berkeley's Parks, Recreation and Waterfront Commission, said vitamin C helps neutralize the toxic substance chrome 6, which was first detected at the park at Fifth and Harrison streets near Interstate 80 three years ago. Vitamin C, technically known as ascorbic acid, is sprayed into cracks and brushed in, he said. "

Blood flow velocity through the carotids was completely normal in these 23 subjects.

    "If we had set a cutoff of 60 years of age as the American Heart Association did, we would have found that none of our test subjects would have shown clinically significant carotid artery pathology. In other words, had we used the same narrow parameters (under age 60) that were presented at the American Heart Association meeting, we would have had no carotid artery pathology to report in this group of people who take very high doses of supplements."

    Over six years, researchers tracked 662 consecutive patients in acute liver failure who were treated at 22 transplant centers. (Acute liver failure is the most severe type, developing over days, unlike chronic liver failure that can simmer for years because of alcohol abuse or viral hepatitis.)

    Almost half were acetaminophen-related. More remarkable was the steady increase: Acetaminophen was to blame for 28 percent of the liver poisonings in 1998, but caused 51 percent of cases in 2003.

    That makes acetaminophen the most common cause of acute liver failure, the researchers report in the journal Hepatology.

    While most patients pulled through with intensive care, 74 died and 23 others received a transplant.

This is especially the case when a deficiency of ascorbic acid is present. In animal experiments, the administration of ascorbic acid along with the toxic drug reduced the incidence of peptic ulcer and gastric hemorrhage to such an extent that it prompted one author (Aron) to suggest, "Therefore it would seem judicious in human therapeutics to include ascorbic acid in every prescription for an anti-inflammatory drug" [ Healing Factor by Stone ]

This influenza, currently isolated in China, is a hemorrhagic illness.
