Alkalize-C is a hypo-allergenic, alkalyzing, neutral pH, “non-bowel tolerance” buffered Vitamin C, trace mineral powder. Vitamin C is an essential vitamin that can only be obtained through diet. It is a powerful antioxidant, required for at least 300 metabolic functions in the body.
Vitamin C plays a critical role in tissue growth and repair. It supports connective tissue by building collagen and is required for the production of folic acid, phenylalanine and tyrosine. It enhances the absorption rate of iron in the body and supports the adrenal glands through the formation of anti-stress hormones.
Stress at all levels, greatly increases the need for Vitamin C. Smoking significantly decreases Vitamin C levels, as does the use of estrogen supplementation (i.e. birth control pills, or hormone replacement in menopause), cortisone and aspirin. Research on Vitamin C therapy offers promising results. Supplemental Vitamin C has been shown to offer protection against heart disease and for the treatment of Arthritis and cataracts.
Vitamin C deficiency is common in mentally ill patients. Clinical research trials have shown vitamin C supplementation to be effective in the treatment of schizophrenia and other mental illness.
Strong evidence exists for Vitamin C therapy in Cancer treatment. Research trials show that mega-doses of Vitamin C may increase survival rates for terminally ill cancer patients. In addition, the ability for Vitamin C to counteract the effects of toxic chemicals and radiation can offer protection against the damage caused by traditional cancer treatment.
Vitamin C is able to combine with certain heavy metals, rendering them harmless and enabling their removal from the body. Supplementation should thus be considered in the case of any heavy metal detoxification protocol or dental procedure dealing with the removal of mercury amalgams.
Although Vitamin C is one of the most commonly supplemented nutrients, most formulas found in health food stores cannot be assimilated and high doses of these formulas needed for therapeutic benefit can lead to some uncomfortable side effects, i.e. diarrhea and the subsequent loss of essential trace minerals. Alkalize-C is a non “bowel tolerance” Vitamin C alkalizing mineral drink. As a powerful immune enhancer, it aids in the reduction of oxidative stress and supports healthy adrenal function.
A combination of high quality ascorbic acid and supportive essential trace minerals, Alkalize-C protects against trace mineral loss which sometimes accompanies high ascorbate therapy. These carefully selected trace minerals support the production of energy, reduction of oxidative stress, cellular repair and healthy immune function. Alkalize-C is an excellent addition to any healing strategy, especially in cases of adrenal insufficiency, compromised immunity or heavy metal detoxification.
