Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid -AA)

Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid -AA)
Have you take your Vitamin C today & every day? AA is essential for connective tissue, and is present in every tissue in the body for repair and regeneration. AA is crucial for immune system and to fight infections.

Unfortunately, during evolution, human beings lost one enzyme in the liver to help form AA from sugar. Most mammals manufacture large amounts of AA. For example, an unstressed cow grazing in the field may make 2-6 grams of AA daily. Under stress, animals may make 10-20 grams of AA daily. Humans make 0 grams!

I recommend take 1-2 grams of Vitamin C daily. At the beginning of a cold, take 2 grams of AA 3-4 times a day or more as tolerated. If real bad come and get an IV Vitamin C drip of 25 grams at AAWC!
