More Amazing Powers of Vitamin C Newly Discovered

www.123rf.com
Never underestimate the power of Vitamin C for your health. I always tell people to take Vitamin C supplements (preferably sodium ascorbate) daily for better health and disease prevention.

I read this report from the site 4.dr-rath-foundation.org highlighting "a new concept of the importance of Vitamin C in maintaining the inter-cellular substance of connective tissues." To get a better idea, the article is titled "Vitamins C and P in Cardiovascular and Cerebrovascular Disease."

In other words, Vitamin C is powerful for preventing (or probably even treating) heart and brain problems where blood vessels are concerned.

It mentioned a few but powerful health benefits:

1. Wonderful for cellular metabolism or the chemical reactions in living organism which are vital to maintain life.
2. Helps heal wounds faster.
3. Helps the adrenal gland function better.
4. Detoxifying certain drugs from the body like sulfanomides and arsenic.
5. Effective against inflammation and infections.
6. Vital key in cellular integrity.
7. Maturation of precollagen to turn it into collagen to strengthen body cells and tissues and help them stick together. However, lack of Vitamin C will not separate cells but may cause their degeneration, the study said.

For only P5.50 I have my daily dose of sodium ascorbate. Sometimes I take 2 or 3 to prevent internal inflammation. With the kind of foods we eat today (which are sometimes permeated with harmful chemicals, steroids and antibiotics), inflammation can easily be triggered in our body organs or systems. And inflammation can be very dangerous.

During times I have no choice but to eat meat or pork, I take 2 to 3 caps of sodium ascorbate for prevention. In normal times, I take one cap a day.

A lot of diseases can be prevented by simply taking Vitamin C supplements every day, aside from eating fruits with Vitamin C. But ask your doctor about it first.

Harvard Study Says Chicken Skin is Healthy!

You used to take off chicken skin because doctors and nutritionists said it's bad for your heart. So, with broken hearts we did so, stripping the golden brown and juicy skin from our roasted or grilled chicken and couldn't believe we were actually throwing away all that goodness into the trash.

And we wondered why God made chicken skin so delicious just so we could throw it all away.

But a new Harvard study says chicken skin is actually good for your health---to be specific, your heart health. It says most of the fatty part of chicken skin (the most mouthwatering one) is unsaturated and healthy for the heart. And that's according to studies done by the Harvard School of Public Health, no less.

Unsaturated fat can lower your cholesterol and blood pressure, the Harvard school said, according to an article on The Daily Meal site titled "Doctor's Got It All Wrong!" So, if the study is correct (I'm waiting for another "study" to contradict this---al…

Do You Know the Right Way of Eating Fruits 2

Previously on Right Way of Eating Fruits

Another mistake people do when eating fruits is eating them long after peeling their skin. Not many people know this, but all fresh fruits are alkaline, even soir ones. I met one "nutritionist" who thought sour fruits were all purely acidic---just because they were sour.

Take kalamansi for instance. Fresh kalamansi is alkaline. Those who know herbal medicine know this. But make sure you consume it right after slicing it open. If you let it lie open like that for a long time it becomes acidic. Moreover, the Vitamin C in it quickly evaporates. You get nothing but sourness.

So those fruit juices sold in bottles in grocries and malls? You get nothing from them except water, flavor, sugar and synthetic Vitamin C perhaps, which is acidic. If you want to keep fit, an acidic tummy is the last thing you'd want.

Here are my secrets on how I get physically fit. Click here.

If you peel off a banana, make sure you eat the whole thing now. Don&#…

How Posture Affects Your Confidence Level

Try it. Make it a habit to stand erect---chest out, stomach in---and make sure you look relaxed and natural doing it. No hint of struggling. How? Well, keep practicing this posture.

And then always lift your chin and look straight ahead with relaxed, rested eyes. Even if you don't feel confident inside, that look will make people think you have it. That look and posture often earn you respect.

Now, when you see people awed at you because they think you have powerful self confidence---when in fact you don't---you begin to feel confident. It builds up like a miracle.

I tried it once. I used to stand up with stooping shoulders and often looking down at the floor. Then one time I saw how it looked in a mirror. Such a look of defeat and weakness. Then I wondered---does good posture really make a difference?

So I started practicing good posture. I studied how to stand, sit and walk erect, like a real model. I watched how models moved and imitated them. Together with my regular work…
