Vitamin C and cholesterol

Diseased heart takes so much vitamin C is that it takes almost everything in the body, causing a condition close to scurvy. To such conclusion after many years of research came Dr. R. Hume with the staff of the clinic, Glasgow (Scotland)7. The first experiments were conducted in 26 men and 5 women, suffering a heart attack. After a heart attack the content of ascorbic acid in leukocytes gradually decreased, while in 6-12 h has not reached the level of the scurvy - a disease caused by significant deficiency of vitamin C.
The white cells are white blood cells that delivers to all tissues of the body, many of the necessary nutrients, including vitamin C. vitamin C Content in leukocytes considered to be the total content in the body.
What happened with ascorbic acid, if the level in the body suddenly has fallen drastically? It was considered that "it takes part in the salvation of the heart." It is known that vitamin C promotes the formation of connective tissue. And if you compare our skeleton with reinforced concrete structure of the building, the connective tissue is a cement mortal, connecting the brick walls of this building. Without vitamin C connective tissue loses the ability to regenerate, because in this case, the cells cannot save the form, as well as to perform its functions.
When a heart attack is blocked coronary vessel ceases to supply the heart with oxygen, and death or atrophy part of the heart muscle. Connective tissue immediately have to "patch" the affected muscle, and this requires a lot of vitamin C. These assumptions are confirmed by the results of samples taken from the dead hearts, for various reasons, people. It turned out that in the hearts of people died of heart attacks was 25 % more vitamin C.
At the same time, according to the observations of the canadian cardiologist of Chagovita with employees, in the heart muscle died of a heart attack is too little magnesium. This corresponds to the message of the who that soft water contains small Sa and Mo, contributes to the emergence of sclerosis and heart attacks.
In Cape town (South Africa) Dr. N. Bronte-Steward made a surprising discovery. In patients with scurvy he found very low levels of cholesterol in the blood, which after treatment with vitamin C has returned to normal. In healthy people the same vitamin did not cause any changes in cholesterol. Hence a conclusion: ascorbic acid not only washes away the cholesterol from the arteries, but also normalizes the metabolism: reduces too high maintenance and increases too low.
Obviously, this is not the only substance that frees our arteries from excess cholesterol. For normal fuktsionirovanie our bodies need a lot of other substances - vitamins, unsaturated fatty acids, proteins, mineral salts, etc.,
Atherosclerosis acts harmful to the brain and heart, and it can be called a disease caused by a deficit of many elements. One of them is ascorbic acid along with such well-known minerals like magnesium, calcium, chrome , and lithium.
English doctor Jeffrey Taylor spent many years in the East. Was Professor of the medical faculty of the University in Lahore (Pakistan). All his life he had to treat the hungry and malnourished patients. After the war he retired and returned to England, where he continued in Pakistan scientific work on studying of vitamins C and group b, particularly on the impact of the lack of these vitamins on our body. Contrary to the statement by the British Ministry of health of full, with rare exceptions, the power of the British, Dr. Taylor says more than 1/3 of the population suffer from there "chronic scurvy, especially during the winter, when few fresh fruits and vegetables. He suspects that the situation is not better in many other European countries. Excessive consumption of sugar, products purified from white flour and other products of the manufacturing process reduces the proportion of fruit and vegetables in the diet, and thereby causes a deficiency of vitamin C.
It is easy to notice that in the winter and early spring is much more heart attacks and other heart diseases, than in summer or early fall, when no shortage of fruit and vegetables in our diet.
