The Real Anti Aging Story Behind Vitamin C


Vitamin C may be the single most powerful anti-aging, life-saving vitamin on the planet.

Yes, that is a pretty bold statement, but once you learn the real story behind vitamin C I think you will better understand how you too can use this vitamin to look younger, stay well and even get well from serious diseases.

Vitamin C is non toxic.  No one has ever died from taking too much vitamin C.

I  have learned so much from taking the MegaVitamin Course with Dr. Andrew Saul.  He is an Ortho Molecular Medicine specialist, who has written a number of best selling books on health and nutrition.


Dr. Andrew Saul has also helped 1,000’s of people get well using nutrition and vitamins. Check out his site

If you saw the documentary Food Matters, he is the guy who says “one quarter of what you eat keeps you alive, the other three quarters keeps your doctor alive”.

The real story behind Vitamin C, which I have learned from Dr. Saul, doesn’t seem to be talked about much.

Humans are one of the few animals who no longer produce vitamin C.  Yes, scientist know that at some point in history, for unknown reasons, the human body stopped producing vitamin C.

The US Recommended Daily Allowance for Vitamin C is under 100 mg per day.

According to Linus Pauling, healthy animals make the human equivalent of 2 – 12,000 mg of vitamin C per day.  When an animal gets sick, they make the human equivalent of 50,000 mg or more of vitamin C per day.

Dr. Andrew Saul, poses an interesting observation.  “Maybe somebody has made a mistake”.

If the entire animal kingdom is making huge amounts of vitamin C on a daily basis, up to 120 times more vitamin C than the US government recommends for humans, and if animals produce way more vitamin C when they are sick, well maybe the US Government has got it all wrong.

Yes just maybe we humans need to get just as much vitamin C as animals do, and maybe just like the animal kingdom, we need much more vitamin C when we are sick.

And maybe we need to get our vitamin C the same way the animal kingdom makes vitamin C, which is not all at once, but throughout the entire day.

Dr. Andrew Saul recommends that healthy people take vitamin C with Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. If you are sick, you may need to take Vitamin C every hour, every 1/2 hour,  every 15 minutes, or for severe health issues every 6 minutes.

When Dr. Saul had Viral Pneumonia, he took 2,000 mg of Vitamin C every 6 minutes.  After 3 hours his fever came down 3 degrees and his severe cough went away.  He continued this protocol and made a complete recovery in 72 hours.

This is what Dr. Frederick Robert Klenner, a board certified chest physician reported when he
gave mega doses of vitamin C to his patients. He got cures from viral pneumonia in 72 hours. Three days is extremely fast. Viral pneumonia can take a couple of weeks to recover from and actually kills 10s of 1000s of people a year, particularly elderly.

Vitamin C is anti-viral as well as a natural antibiotic, antihistamine, and anti-toxin.  Vitamin C will even lower a fever and stop diarrhea.


What is the best form of Vitamin C to take?

The good news is that it doesn’t matter which type you take as long as it is pure.


The Ageless Beauty Report offers Metagenics Ultra Potent-C® 1000 a proprietary, patented pharmaceutical grade vitamin C formula that features a unique blend of metabolites. Its buffered delivery system is designed to help prevent the potential stomach upset that is sometimes associated with high vitamin C intake. Ultra Potent-C 1000 supports healthy immune function by helping promote natural killer cell and white blood cell activity. Preliminary scientific research suggests that vitamin C in the form of Ultra Potent-C may result in improved uptake of the vitamin by white blood cells when compared to regular ascorbic acid.*

No matter what brand of Vitamin C you choose to consume, make sure that it is manufactured in the United States.  Over 70% of all vitamin C is manufactured in China, which has a history of contamination issues.

You can also take

  • calcium ascorbate, which is non-acidic
  • sodium ascorbate, which is non-acidic
  • liposomal vitamin C, which is non-acidic
    (Dr. Mercola’s Lipospheric Vitamin C is affordable)
  • ascorbyl palmitate, which is not acidic.

How much Vitamin C do you need to take?

Every person has different requirements.  If you are sick, Dr. Saul says “Take enough Vitamin C to be symptom free, whatever the amount may be.”

The key to getting well is to take 1,000 – 2,000 mg as frequently as possible. For serious illnesses, you may need to take every 6 – 15 minutes.

How do you know if you are taking too much?

The moment you have loose stools or diarrhea, you have reached bowel tolerance and you can cut back on the amount.  Do not completely stop taking the Vitamin C.  In fact once you are well, you should gradually reduce the amount you are taking, until you reach your normal healthy daily amount.

How much Vitamin C do I take when I am well?

Dr. Saul says that healthy adults should take 2,000 – 4,000 mg or more of Vitamin C  per day divided between breakfast, lunch and dinner.  If you feel great and don’t get sick, you are taking enough.  Dr. Saul personally takes 18,000 mg a day.

Children need half their age in grams.  So a 14 year old kid would need 7,000 mg broken up into 3 doses.

A lot of people complain that the excess vitamin c creates expensive urine.

Dr. Saul says “yes, your urine is basically a spillway for vitamin C. Urine is what your body purifies out of blood. If it was in your urine, it had to be in your blood first. If it’s in your blood, you
absorbed it. So before you get expensive urine, you get expensive blood. Now, that’s
probably a good thing. Vitamin C circulating in your blood is good. The higher the saturation,
the higher the amount of vitamin C, in your blood, the more powerful it is.”

So if Vitamin C can get rid of viral pneumonia in 72 hours, you must be wondering what else it can do, right?

At extremely high doses, Vitamin C is extremely toxic to cancer cells. I am talking about 50,000 mg 60,000 mg even as much as 200,000 mg per day.  This high of a dose can be taken orally but for cancer  is usually done via a Vitamin C IV.  The Vitamin C actually kills cancer cells without harming healthy cells.  Many people call Vitamin C natures chemo.

Extra Vitamin C in your urine

  • Helps prevent bladder cancer.
  • Stops bladder infections and UTI’s
  • Prevents kidney stones

High doses of Vitamin C will dissolve both kinds of kidneys stones.   Yes, you can avoid the pain of passing kidney stones simply by taking high doses of vitamin C.

Vitamin C is anti viral.  Just think about all the scary horrible viruses and stop worrying.  Why?  Because now you know how to get rid of a virus.  Doesn’t matter if it is the common cold, HPV (Human papillomavirus), the Swine Flu virus, the Flu virus, or even Ebola.  Vitamin C has been shown over and over again to kill viruses.

In his book ‘Vitamin C, Infectious Diseases and Toxins: Curing the Incurable’ Dr Thomas Levy describes how high dose vitamin C has successfully eliminated all known viruses. “I have not found any virus for which vitamin C does not exert a virucidal effect, as long as enough vitamin C reaches the virus, such as in any acute infection.”

Vitamin C is also vital for slowing down the aging process.

You must have adequate amounts of vitamin C in order for the body to produce adequate amounts of collagen.

Your body cannot produce collagen without vitamin C.

Collagen is a protein consisting of polypeptide chains; the long chains of this fibrous molecule contain about one thousand amino-acid residues, and about sixteen thousand atoms.  Collagen fibers are actually stronger than steel wire of the same weight.

Collagen or collagen fibers are found in the  skin, bones, joints, teeth, blood vessels, eyes, heart, and, in fact, essentially all parts of the body.

Collagen is the fiber that literally holds the body together.

When it comes to youthful looking skin most people understand that collagen is what keeps the skin from sagging and aging prematurely.

What most people don’t understand is the crucial role Vitamin C plays in the production of collagen.

All you have to do is take a look at what happens to the body with severe Vitamin C deficiency, better known as Scurvy.

A person who gets Scurvy is so deficient in Vitamin C that their body is no longer able to make any collagen.

When this happens, the body literally begins to fall apart.  All the joints fail, because the body can no longer keep the cartilage and tendons strong without collagen.  Then the blood vessels break open, gums ulcerate, teeth fall out, again because there is no collagen.  Lastly the immune system deteriorates and death follows.

We know from history that the cure for Scurvy was to consume limes, which we now know are full of vitamin C.

If severe vitamin c deficiency causes the body to literally fall apart, what does moderate vitamin C deficiency cause?  I would say at the very least sagging skin, aching joints, bleeding gums, bad teeth and a damaged immune system.

Interestingly enough, Linus Pauling, considered the father of Vitamin C, felt that all disease could be traced back to Vitamin C deficiency.

I personally think Linus was right.

More and more people are waking up to the fact that if you want to slow down the aging process and experience optimal health, you must take 100% responsibility for your own health.  Adding extra Vitamin C to your daily regimen is easy, painless and an inexpensive way to boost your health and your beauty.
