About the Product
These unique vitamin C and vitamin B3 (niacin) chewables are dual purpose: They make taking vitamin C easy for children and cancer patients.
- China-Free™: The first (and only) chewable vitamin C containing vitamin C as DSM Quali-C® (The highest quality vitamin C, manufactured in Scotland, UK.)
- The first commercial chewable vitamin C containing both L-ascorbic acid and niacin. Note: DSM Quali-C® is certified No GMOs and tested 100% corn free.
- Pleasant Taste: Natural cherry extracts. No artificial flavors or sweeteners, no MSG, no alcohol.
- 90 tablets (servings)
Each jar contains 90 tablets; one tablet per day means one jar will last three months.
Other active ingredients are xylitol, sorbitol, and cherry flavoring for taste. The reasons for each ingredient are described in the following sections.
Cancer and Vitamin C
Hickey and Robert's emphasize the importance of taking vitamin C all day long (or 24/7) fighting cancer; not just during the limited time one is undergoing a high-dosage intravenous vitamin C infusion.
This round-the-clock strategy increases the "redox pressure" inside tumors. However, it is not always convenient or easy to take high-dose vitamin C all day long.
The new chewables are designed specifically for this 'redox' mission and contain other anti-tumor factors that may have favorably affected the Pauling/Cameron results.
Cameron's sugar-free chewables have the following cancer-fighting features:
- Finest Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid) combined with Vitamin B3/Niacin (As inositol niacinate)
- Pleasant tasting without sugar.
- Lack of sugar helps starve cancers of glucose while providing known anti-cancer sweeteners xylitol and sorbitol
- Even Cherry flavor may contain anti-tumor substance (Cherry flavor added to match Cameron's formula)
- Niacin has both anti-AHDH and anti-cancer properties (ref: Niacin the Real Story: Hoffer/Saul)
Abram Hoffer discusses the anti-cancer properties of Niacin in the book Niacin: The Real story:
Did Ewan Cameron Invent a Secret Weapon Against Cancer?
I believe I have found more clues to how Cameron's cancer patients responded better than subsequent patients on IV/C.
While checking about something else, I came across the website of Dr. Arnold Smith of Mississippi. He explains how he had numerous conversations years ago with Dr. Cameron while he was alive. Dr Smith reports something that I never heard of in any of the published literature from that time.
The patients daily took 10g of ascorbic acid orally in large pills, but did not like it. So he and a compounding pharmacist reformulated a different procedure. They drank a solution of sodium ascorbate plus sorbitol plus cherry flavor. Well now!
That means something important to me.
It has recently come to light more and more about the low carbs diet being necessary to beat cancer. OK then, someone drinking something sweet several times daily everyday is going to tend to not crave yet more sweets. This should contribute however inadvertently to a low or lower than average carbs diet and could even be ketogenic since sorbitol is little metabolized and considered a low caloric sweetener. Furthermore, the literature supports a pro-apoptic effect in some tumors.
Next cherry flavor contains significant amounts of benzaldehyde. This substance is notably damaging to tumors by reacting with their precious thiol groups and disrupting thiol-disulfide and redox metabolism. The sodium ascorbate may also have assisted to remove metabolic acids as most cancer patients are moderately acidotic. I have attached some relevant references.
Enjoy! and Merry Christmas!

Rapid induction of apoptosis in human gastric cancer cell lines by sorbitol.
Teramachi K, Izawa M.

Most solid tumors, including gastric cancers, respond poorly to non-surgical treatments which are expected to induce an apoptosis-dependent involution. We hypothesize that the apoptotic machinery in solid tumors is either defective or in a suppressed condition. Overcoming the ineffective induction of apoptosis may improve the responsiveness of solid tumors to non-surgical treatments. Recently, sorbitol, a kind of hexose, has been found to be an effective inducer of apoptosis in HEp-2 cells. Therefore, it is of particular interest to examine the effect of sorbitol-treatment on gastric cancer cells. In the present study, we selected 4 gastric cancer cell lines which have been reported to exhibit different abilities in regard to apoptosis induction, and examined the effect of sorbitol-treatment on apoptosis induction. Within 3 hr after sorbitol-treatment, apoptosis was induced comparably in all cell lines examined. Cell death in MKN-1, MKN-28 or MKN-74 proceeded in a biphasic manner, while cell death in KATO-III was monophasic. The cell death partially depended on caspase activity. Treatments with sorbitol in combination with 12-O-tetradecanoylphorbol-13-acetate (TPA) markedly suppressed the apoptotic cell death, suggesting a role of protein kinase-C-dependent process. To our knowledge, this is the most rapid induction of apoptosis in human gastric cancer cells reported to date. PMID: 11232246 [PubMed - indexed for MEDLINE] 5.
The sugar-free, the sweetener xylitol is known to have anti-biotic properties and is recommended for healthier teeth. The theory is that microbes accept xylitol is as if it were sugar, but cannot survive.

Children: Niacin Deficiency and Hyperactivity
These tablets are a sugar-free way for older children to obtain their daily vitamin C requirement with the important addition of Niacin.
Why Include Niacin?Abram Hoffer, MD, PhD, was a psychiatrist who routinely prescribed high doses of niacin. This work interested Pauling who coined the term "orthomolecular" after reading one of Dr. Hoffer's books. Later, Hoffer even recommended Niacin as a possible non-drug treatment of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD).
Dr. A. Hoffer, MD, PhD, reports on the calming effect of Niacin and its utility as a non toxic treatment for child ADHD.
From Hoffer/Saul's Niacin the Real Story pg 90,
Kaufman continues, "With vitamin therapy, such a patient becomes unaccustomedly calm, working more efficiently, finishing what he starts, and he loses the feeling that he is constantly driving himself . . .
If such a patient can be persuaded to continue niacinamide therapy, in time he comes to enjoy a sense of well-being, realizing that in retrospect that what he thought in the past was a superabundance of energy and vitality was in reality an abnormal "wound up" feeling, which was an expression of aniacinamidosis (niacin deficiency).
Recommended Dosages for CancerThe new Chewable Sugar-FREE/China-FREE™ tablets are designed to make it easier to keep the vitamin C-induced oxygen-redox pressure on the tumors.
The Hickey/Roberts dynamic flow theory predicts that the half-life of vitamin C in the blood is 30 minutes. This means that optimal vitamin C levels can be maintained in healthy people by taking 250-500 mg, or one chewable tablet, every 3 to 4 hours. (Cancer patients might metabolize more, probably not less.)
Recommended Dosages for ChildrenOne tablet per day will better the health of most children, and 3 tablets per day may very well be optimal for most healthy children.
Dr. Frederick Klenner published his vitamin C dosage recommendations for children based on his early clinical experience:
The Vitamin C Foundation currently recommends 3000 mg of vitamin C daily, or 6 tablets, optimally, 2 tablets with breakfast, one tablet for lunch, 2 tablets for dinner and 1 tablet before bed. See Our Vitamin C RDA
