Lately vitamin C is replaced by many other more popular antioxidants but we shouldn’t forget that vitamin C is the grandfather of the antioxidants and it has numerous health benefits.
Dr. Ronald Hunninghake is a well-known expert on this vitamin. Twenty years ago he and Dr. Hugh Riordan conducted a research on how vitamin C can help the patients with cancer. Their clinic is the leading expert on vitamin C but there are many others who are exploring this issue as well.
The latest studies show that Vitamin C effectively destroys colorectal cancer cells.
The amount of vitamin C in 300 oranges is proven to kill colorectal cancer which is the third most common cancer in USA. Even 50 percent of the patients do not have any benefits from the conventional therapies.
Weill Cornell Medicine in New York proved that the high dose of vitamin C triggers oxidation in the cancer cells and stopps the tumor growth.
Vitamin C improves the overall health as it has antioxidant effects which delays and prevents some types of cell damage.
It is also proven to help against bladder cancer, pancreatic cancer and renal cell carcinoma. The researchers also found that the oral doses are not absorbed properly through the intestine. That is why it should be given intravenously.
Dr. Hunninghake says that an average person should take 1 gram of vitamin C two times a day. If the patient is suffering from chronic infections or fatigue the dose should be increased. Oral dosages are enough for most of the patients but if they suffer from more serious disease then Dr. Hunninghake recommends vitamin C therapy.
You can also increase the vitamin C intake with consuming a bigger amount of fruits and vegetables. A lot of people consume oranges but the truth is that red and yellow bell peppers have the highest vitamin C coming in at 306 percent of your daily needs. Kiwi, broccoli, dark leafy greens, tomatoes, berries, papaya, peas and oranges are rich in vitamin C.
Do not avoid vitamin C especially in winter! Consume a lot of fruits and vegetables. If you are fighting cancer or some other chronic disease think about intravenous vitamin C therapy!
