How to take Vitamin C Powder
I escaped last year's strain of flu without a flu shot just by following this prescription most doctors won't tell you...but I will!
When your cold/flu symptoms start to appear
- take one level teaspoon of vitamin C powder and stir it into 8 oz [a small glass] of sweet juice.
- Repeat this every hour for four hours ONCE daily until your cold symptoms go away.
When your symptoms are gone, take a teaspoon of the powder once or twice a day until you start to get, well, gassy. Reduce the dose, and discontinue taking it. The idea is to taper yourself off of it and let your body adjust. That's all there is to it!
- is free of animal byproducts
- has no hidden chemicals
- may help prevent cancer
- prevents heart disease
- best of all- it doesn't hurt a bit, promise:)
Why it works
Vitamin C powder is NOT the same as the flavored fizzing drink vitamin mixes that fly off Walgreens shelves in the fall. It's a concentrate of around 5000 mg ascorbic acid crystals per teaspoon- the strong version of what gives citrus it's "zing". Unless the jar is pre-blended with something like calcium to 'buffer' it, this stuff is super sour! So pucker up baby;)
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) doesn't kill a cold virus, but lowers histamine levels in the blood. Simply put, a good strong dose of Vitamin C will make your body's natural response to germs (*cough* *sniff* *groan*) ease up a bit. Although most of our daily dose of 'C' comes from fresh citrus fruits and bright colored veggies, a sick body requires much much more; like 100 X's more than the recommended daily intake of just 65 mg!
Don't take my word for it- listen to what Dr. Michael Weiner, Ph.D (posted thanks to ModernAmericanThinkr) has to say about it in this video. I heard a clip similar to this on my dad's talkshow radio station and tested it for myself.
