Age-dependent telomere shortening is slowed down by enrichment of intracellular vitamin C...

" Here, we succeeded in artificial slowdown of age-dependent telomere shortening to 52-62% of the untreated control, in human vascular endothelial cells, by addition of the oxidation-resistant type of ascorbic acid (Asc),

Asc-2-O-phosphate (Asc2P), which concurrently achieved both extension of cellular life-span and prevention of cell size enlargement indicative of cellular senescence.

Thus, age-dependent telomere-shortening can be decelerated by suppression of intracellular oxidative stress and/or by telomerase retention, both of which are achieved by enriched Asc(in) but not by extracellular Asc overwhelmingly.

Vitamin C's Effect on Skin Cancer

"I've had two more people rid themselves of basal cell carcinoma by wiping on concentrated solution of vitamin C. One used sodium ascorbate and the other buffered C from Life Extension Foundation. Both scabbed up and left clean scars in one to two weeks depending on how large the thing is.

There's no question that vitamin C is a big gun in the anti-cancer arsenal!

This would be a good test to see if a mole is cancerous or not. Just rub on the C solution and if it crusts up and falls off it was, if nothing happens then it's probably not cancer. We know from Dr. Riordan's research that C is toxic to melanoma in cell culture."



Dear Vitamin C Foundation:

I Just wanted to update you on my progress.

I was the guy taking ascorbic acid up the nose.

Well pursuant to your Technical Advisor's advice I switched to sodium ascorbate power. I am still taking it up the nose in power form not liquid form. My sinuses are still clear. Sinus infections have not come back even in the mitts of a full blown allergy attack. This is a remarkable CURE!!!!! It has changed my life, please spread the word.

God Bless You and The Vitamin C Foundation.

Tom T.

Curing the Incurable
Dear Sirs,

I am 32 and have suffered with sinus infections my entire life. Sometime more than 5 a year and sometimes lasting several months. I have tried every product on the market and almost every prescription known for this. 

I thought there was no cure.  Only temporary fixes that antibiotics and decongestants offered would stave off the infection for a time.

However, with your help I believe I have found a cure.

I now treat myself with regular dosages of vitamin c in excess of 3000mg a day.  However, this alone has not been the complete cure.  I found that although this improved my overall health and well being I still was getting them.

So, one day I felt the sinus pressure building in my head, my face starting to swell. I decided I would crush the vitamin c into a fine power and "SNORT IT" through the nostrils.  I did not try the nasal spray suggested by your articles.  I just did not want to waste time.  I would take a very small amount of vitamin c power on the tip of my finger and sniff it into each nostril about every 5 to 10 minutes. 

Here is the amazing part.

I noticed immediately that the mucus was breaking up. Much similar to a nasal spray like [deleted] that causes an initial break up.  However, unlike [product deleted] which eventually stops the mucus break up and then has the reverse effect and also drys your nasal passages.  The vitamin c power kept on breaking up the mucus and causing drainage.  My very painful sinus headache was literally gone in about 30 minutes.

Better than that though! I felt completely clear headed in about an hour.  And even better than that was greenish in color coming out of my nose was now clear!!!  I really believe this is a miracle cure!!!  I mean I have been suffering with this my whole life!!!! 

How and why is this working?  What is it doing to my nasal passages?  Also, am I experiencing an anti-histamine affect stronger than oral ingesting vitamin c? I think I must be for my sinuses to clear so quickly and stay clear for over 10+ hours!!!
Thank You and God Bless You
Tom T


From Vitamin C Foundation Medical Advisor and Medical Doctor

This effect is well known to me. Many of my patients have [used powdered vitamin C up the nose] up to 30 years ago, however, I would have several comments.

First, the unqualified term "vitamin C" should be qualified as ascorbic acid, sodium asecorbate, calcium ascorbate, etc. This is very important. (Please make it policy that all references to vitamin C when it is used in a treatment specify the type of ascorbate used. Otherwise, it will cause confusion.)

Most people will damage their mucous membranes with ascorbic acid directly so they should use sodium ascorbate.

Usually sodium ascorbate in a water solution as a spray is best. Low dose should be about 3% but one can carefully experiment with higher concentrations. I use straight ascorbic acid powder with a tiny amount of water to burn off warts on the skin. This is followed by sodium ascorbate or vitamin E oil under a bandade.

My real objection of even using sodium ascorbate nasally is that chronic sinusitis is an indication of chronic subclinical scurvy. A heart attack might be next. 3,000 mg (3 grams) per day is [simply not enough].

A patient with chronic sinusitis should take Cathcart's bowel tolerance doses of ascorbic acid orally ( My guess would be that this might be around 30 grams or more a day. Maybe start with 3 grams 10 times a day. If he does not take enough ascorbic acid orally to clear the sinuses, he runs the risk of other symptoms of chronic subclinical scurvy (infections, allergies, autoimmune diseases, hearta attacks, death, etc.)

If a patient cannot tolerate a significant dose of ascorbic acid orally, something is already the matter with the GI tract and he should be worked up by an orthomolecular physician because that otherwise hidden difficulty with the GI tract can cause serious problem in the future.

CoQ10 and Statins: The Vitamin C Connection
"We are now in a position to witness the unfolding of the greatest medical tragedy of all time - never before in history has the medical establishment knowingly created a life threatening nutrient deficiency in millions of otherwise healthy people." - Peter H. Langsjoen, MD

"Ascorbic acid is an essential food for human beings. People who receive no vitamin C (e.g., ascorbic acid) become sick and die," Linus Pauling, Ph.D., states matter-of-factly (referring to scurvy) in one of his landmark works, Vitamin C and the Common Cold (1970).

Biochemistry of Lyme Disease: Borrelia burgdorferi Spirochete/Cyst ...

"Major Diseases Linked to Lyme Spirochete "

Lyme Spirochete Found in the Brain of MS Patients

The causative organism of Lyme disease, Borrelia burgdorferi, has been found in the brains of many victims of multiple sclerosis (MS).

Listing 5: Lyme Disease Linked to Four Major Diseases Multiple Sclerosis, Alzheimer's, Systemic Scleroderma and Arthritis

ALZHEIMER'S The spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi has been found in the brain of many Alzheimer patients. Also in the brain, antigens and genes of Bb have been co-localized with beta-amyloid deposits.
MULTIPLE SCLEROSIS The spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi (Bb) has been found in the brain of many multiple sclerosis (MS) patients along with amyloid deposits. MS has been linked to Lyme disease both seasonally and by location.
SYSTEMIC SCLERODERMA The spirochete Borrelia burgdorferi has been found in the blood in systemic scleroderma. Treatment with antibiotics effective against Bb returned the skin to normal.
LYME-INDUCED ARTHRITIS Only certain strains of Bb are capable of causing the symptoms of arthritis.

Liposomal Ascorbic Acid

How to take oral Vitamin C without gas or diarrhea.

Almost 100% absorbtion is the key... Liposomal vitamin C is released from the liposomes in the liver almost perfectly imitating the animal release of vitamin C.

Dr. Levy: Highly Bioavailable Liposomal Vitamin C Clinically Effective.

The liposomal form of vitamin C may become important oral cancer adjunct by helping to maintain high blood levels of ascorbate - vitamin C, especially in people who have trouble tolerating ordinary pills due to gas and diarrhea...
" Liposome-encapsulated Ascorbate Liposomes were first proposed as a unique drug delivery system approximately 35 years ago (Bangham, 1995; Gregoriadis, 1995). One of the primary reasons for utilizing a liposome-encapsulation delivery system is to assure a near complete absorption of the encapsulated nutrient or drug into the bloodstream. The physical qualities of the liposome also eliminate the need for digestive activity before absorption. "

The Foundation May Offer LipoSpheric Ascorbic Acid - Subject to Availability and Demand

Our tests with liposomal vitamin C have been amazing. No gas or diarrhea at double the dosages that usually create these effects in our subjects.

Cancer patients may very well tolerate the use of certain dietary supplements
From time to time technical articles are misinterpreted by the media or contain conclusions that are not supported by the data contained or by work done in other laboratories.

"The article’s overgeneralization has resulted in news headlines warning doctors and patients to avoid the use of all dietary supplements during cancer therapy. If true, a warning should also be issued for nutrient-rich foods like fruits, vegetables and nuts; especially if concentrated into juices. Since there is conflicting data and these nutrients are so essential, I do not support either warning." - Neil E. Levin

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS) is Heart Failure Secondary to Mitochondrial Malfunction...
Implications for Treatment: Co-enzyme Q 10 300 - 360mg (the oil of the engine - moves electrons from one molecule to another) L-carnitine 2,000 - 3,000mg (the oil of the engine - moves ATP and ADP across mito membranes) D-ribose 15grams (raw material to make new ATP) Magnesium 400 - 800mg (the spark plugs - fires up many enzyme reactions)

To this I would also add niacinamide 500mgs daily (the raw material to make NAD). I would expect this cocktail of supplements to work best taken together, not as individual supplements.

Incidentally this helps explain why some CFS sufferers have such problems with drug medication and indeed this may help to point towards treatment. All my CFS patients feel much worse on statin (cholesterol-lowering) drugs because these stop the body from making its own Co Q 10. Beta blockers, tricyclic antidepressants and phenothiazines also block Co Q 10 synthesis.

Iodine Deficiency
"Of all the elements known so far to be essential for health, iodine is the most misunderstood and the most feared. Yet, it is by far the safest of all the trace elements known to be essential for human health. It is the only trace element that can be ingested safely in amounts up to 100,000 times the RDA. "

A Cure for Lyme Disease?
After 13 years of suffering with Lyme disease, a possible cure has been stumbled upon. A cumulative effect of much research has produced the possibility that salt and vitamin C may be all that is needed to beat this elusive illness.

Lyme Disease -- Wiped Out By I.V. Vitamin C...

NOTE TO LYME SUFFERS: If you suffer Lyme disease, and want to try the following 6 g vitamin c, 6 g salt treatment, we recommend following Brownstein's advice and using unrefined salt.

Our Readers Have Suggested Alternate Forms of Unrefined Salt

  1. Himalayan salt ("unrefined salt that comes from in the Himalayan Mountains")
  2. Realsalt (May go through fewer production processes than Celtic.)
  3. Celtic (Recommended by Brownstein and shown to be clinically effective in his practice)

Refined Versus Unrefined Salt

Dr. David Brownstein reports that his clinical experience, and literature research, indicates that refined refined salt (such as ordinary table salt) and unrefined salt are different. He considers ordinary, highly refined (e.g. table) salt to be poisonous. He recommends unrefined Celtic Sea Salt ( and compares it to a health food, providing more than 80 minerals.

Surprisingly, Brownstein's review of the salt and high-blood-pressure literature found no solid scientific connection between low-salt and lower blood pressure in most people. His research does reveal that low salt intake dramatically increases the risk of heart attack!

"Low-salt diets can result in a low sodium state (hyponatremia). In the vast majority of hypertensive patients, low-salt diets have never been shown to lower blood pressure consistently. In fact, only a small minority of patients (those that are salt sensitive) will exhibit a blood pressure lowering benefit from a low-salt diet. However, it has never been shown that a low-salt diet will reduce mortality among hypertensive men. In one study, 2937 patients with hypertension were studied for their sodium intake. Men with the lowest sodim intake had a 430% increased risk of heart attack versus men with a higher sodium intake." - SALT Your Way to Health, 2005, Dr David Brownstein, Pg. 62-63.

"Cancer-Enzyme Doc" Nick Gonzalez on The Threat of Socialized Medicine
" Medical science always thrives when there's freedom to think independently. Socialized medicine doesn't allow that because it requires physicians to practice according to pre-set standards. That's the way the Canadian system is. You can't deviate from those standards at all. The trouble is that medicine is not a fixed science. It requires creativity, originality in thinking in new ways. Socialized medicine doesn't allow that. If socialized medicine worked, they would have had to build a Berlin Wall to keep people out. Instead, they had to build the Berlin Wall to keep people in because they were trying to escape socialism and socialized medicine.

Unified Theory of Cardiovascular Disease

Linus Pauling Video Clips

"Let’s start by thinking about “sludge” in a plumbing system. Sludge tends to plug up the smallest pipes in the system first—not the largest.

Likewise, if the system is cardiovascular, you would expect sludge (plaques) to build up first in the capillaries and arterioles, long before appearing in the carotid and coronary arteries. The first blockages, similarly, you would expect to occur way downstream of the pump, not in close proximity to the heart, where the pressure is the greatest.

Yet, this is not the way cholesterol plugs up arteries. It’s the exact reverse. So a plumber’s take would be that something else is happening."

April 2005 Testimonial
Just wanted to say thanks. I've often taken large doses of vitamin C, but very small amounts of E. Until recently. The recent scampaign from the pharmacartel has backfired with at least some people. I took 3200 IUs vitamin E for only 4 days before I noticed a remarkable and welcome drop in my pain levels.

No one seriously understands 16 + hours of pain unless you have the serious misfortune of experiencing it yourself. I'm also taking 420 mgs of coenzyme q10 and some B Complex. One calcium, one selenium and roughly 8 grams of vitamin C.

I told one other person with my disease (Friedreich's Ataxia). I was careful enough to recommend splitting her supplements into four allotments daily. I believe that this is a serious problem with quite a few folks. Supplements wear off over time and must be replaced.

Perhaps I'll increase over time, but the drop in pain has been incredible. To listen to some folks with Friedreich's Ataxia, pain is not a "serious" issue. But for others, the pain is bonesplitting. This wrecks every conceivable aspect of your life. I should add that my sisters believe that I'm speaking more clearly, although I personally haven't noticed much improvement there. I'm turning on my front for the first time in 7 years.

"Overall, we found, 12 percent of Americans had vitamin C deficiency," said Hampl. "Normally, doctors and other health professionals think of scurvy as a disease of the past, but our research has shown that this really isn't true."

Scurvy, or vitamin C deficiency, is associated with low-grade inflammation, fatigue, limping, gum bleeding, or swollen extremities. Vitamin C depletion can also lead to a multitude of other health problems and diseases"

Vitamin C Benefits Arthritis
High Vitamin C Eases Pain...
"A High vitamin C intake protects against the development of painful rheumatoid arthritis. Research published in the Annals of the Rheumatic Diseases showed people with inflammatory polyarthritis tended to have a lower daily intake of fruit and vegetables than those who did not develop the disease.

But vitamin C itself seemed to have an even more important role. Those with the lowest levels of vitamin C intake were three times more likely to develop inflammatory arthritis than those with the highest intakes, the results showed.

Those with levels below the RDA (40 mg in UK) were at four times the risk of inflammatory polyarthritis. Those at less than 56mg a day were still at three times the risk"

Lack of Vitamin C Linked to Respiratory Disorders ...
"A study has found that vitamin C may prevent symptoms associated with airway diseases such as cystic fibrosis, asthma, and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). The findings were published in the March 2, 2004, issue of the Proceedings of the [U.S.] National Academy of Sciences.

In the two-year study, researchers discovered that vitamin C supports the normal hydration of airway surfaces, while vitamin C deficiency may lead to dry, sticky mucus membranes lining the airway. Thus, low levels of vitamin C may play a role in the progression of common inflammatory airway diseases by making the airways susceptible to infections. "

[Annals Internal Medicine, April 6, 140: 533-37, 2004] The news media also appears to be oblivious to the report. It should have been a major headline. But worse yet, government researchers who conducted the study failed to alert the public or the news media. Countless millions of Americans could avoid cataracts, aneurysms, gallstones, cancer and heart disease with this knowledge.

      "When an old and distinguished person speaks to you, listen to him carefully and with respect -- but do not believe him. Never put your trust in anything but your own intellect. Your elder, no matter whether he has gray hair or has lost his hair, no matter whether he is a Nobel Laureate, may be wrong. The world progresses, year by year, century by century, as the members of younger generations find out what was wrong among the things that their elders said. So you must always be skeptical -- always think for yourself."

      Linus Pauling on December 10, 1954 (in Sweden to receive his first Nobel Prize speaking to a group of university students.)
