Thought you would be interested to know that my Lp(a) as of 9/23/11 was 2 mg/d l.
In 8/25/10 after several months of Tower Ascorsine, 2 scoops Ascorsine twice daily, Lp(a) was 3 mg/d l. I continued this regimen until January 2011 when my carotid ultrasound showed significant improvement. Since then 1 scoop twice daily until 3 weeks ago when I reduced it to 1 scoop daily, which I will continue until I repeat my Lp(a) in another 4 months along with a repeat carotid ultrasound. It will be interesting to see if this lower dose of C and Lysine continues to be associated with low Lp(a) and clean(er) carotids. A more or less controlled study!
Still, mainline doctors don't seem interested in discussing with me the implications of utilizing Ascorsine in the treatment of atherosclerosis. One of the reasons given "you don't really know which ingredient is responsible for whatever results you might get". I gather purists would rather not know that a commercial product is effective in controlling plaque buildup and possibly reversing disease if they are unable to definitively identify the one or two or ?more substances that are responsible.
I've felt for some time that a study of the effects just C and Lysine on atherosclerotic lesions and Lp(a) would be very informative and might persuade others to take another, less biased, look at the previous studies of Rath, Pauling, et al.

For anyone out there willing to conduct their own "office" study - we have about 50 jars of "reworked" Cardio-C we can offer at no charge for such a study.
