Vitamin C- Facts
Vitamin C’s a vitamin that’s water-soluble; crucial on an everyday
basis for one’s body.*
The key micronutrient that boosts up one’s immune system; it can’t be
stored within the body similar to the other vitamins that are
fat-soluble (like A, E, D, & K).*
Ascorbic acid’s used as a food preservative as it’s reasonably priced
and it doesn’t meddle with the flavor of food that’s processed. This
determines adequate delivery of vitamins into one’s body by means of
food that’s processed.*
Raw vegetables and fruits must be consumed as and when possible. They
must be refrigerated inside air-tight containers.*
This vitamin is effortlessly washed out throughout the preparation of
food and its storage. Therefore, care must be taken when you are
chopping, boiling, and cooking the food in order to evade aggrandizement
of a specific process.*
Did you know:
China now manufactures over 90 percent of the Vitamin C consumed in the
United States? China is the most polluted nation on the planet (by far),
yet most vitamin companies use nutrients from China to use in their natural
products to save money.
Not LifeSource Vitamins!
We will never use any nutrients from China.

Facts Regarding a Vitamin C Deficiency
Placid deficiencies source fatigue, swollen gums, lack of energy, and nose
bleeding. A fatal ailment attributable to an unpleasant deficiency of Vitamin
C is Scurvy. It takes into account the subsequent symptoms:
Joint soreness and swelling
Delayed injury healing
Deficiency Symptoms in Adults and Children
A vitamin C deficiency can result in a dangerous disease called scurvy.
Swelling of the body, pain in the joints, bruising or bleeding very easily and
hair loss is a common symptom of scurvy.
These symptoms are signs that blood vessels in the body have lost their
strength and also signal a loss of collagen from the body. However, scurvy
occurs when a person has a vitamin C deficiency for a substantially long
period like 2 to 3 months. It is true that early signs are not very
indicative of the disease, but one can always consume foodstuffs with a
high vitamin C content to cure the disease.
When a person's body becomes deficient in vitamin C, it can also lead to
thyroid-related problems and premature aging. The human body's immune
system also gets depleted and as a result, various toxic substances become
even more dangerous.
The deficiency symptoms in children are more or less similar, apart from
the fact that their bone growth may be impaired. This problem is more
common among infants and growing children.
Vitamin C deficiency creates neurological problems
A recent study conducted at the Vanderbilt University Medical Center,
Department of Neuroscience in Nashville, Tennessee, and recorded in the
Journal of Neurochemistry October 2012, came up with some interesting
They used mice that were genetically engineered to deactivate the genes
that normally provide their own vitamin C. Of course, those mice are kept
alive and healthy by externally providing them vitamin C with ascorbic acid
But for the purposes of this study, they created periods of not providing
AA and then reintroducing it. Before and after each period, blood samples
were taken. During each deprivation period, behavioral patterns were
observed and noted.
Depressive and submissive behavior was noted during the initial absence of
AA. Compulsions for consuming glucose above all other food types were
After depriving the mice of AA a second time, blood samples indicated "...
decreased blood glucose levels, oxidative damage to lipids and proteins in
the cortex, and decreases in dopamine and serotonin metabolites in both the
cortex and striatum." In other words, neurological damage.
The miraculous results of IV mega-dose vitamin C or liposomal high cellular
absorption vitamin C have been achieved by orthomolecular medical MDs who
have used mega-dose minerals and vitamins for decades, resolving extreme
physiological and psychological problems.
