“Satisfaction of one’s curiosity is one of the greatest sources of happiness in life” – Dr. Linus Pauling
|Funny the way life works sometimes. I was reading W. Gifford-Jones MD “a collection of columns” from his book “What I Learned as a Medical Journalist which I find fascinating by the way….when I realized I was out of Vitamin C. I was also feeling under the weather and it was suggested to me that I try out a brand new product – a powder with a high concentration of Vitamin C and L-Lysine called Medi-C Plus. It sounded pretty good so I’m trying it out when I then realize that the Harvard Medical graduate’s name is on the bottle. So now I’m even more curious to know more about this product.In a revolutionary finding, based on scientific fact that should have hit the headlines of every newspaper in the world, he says this powder can both prevent and reverse atherosclerosis in coronary and other arteries to prevent heart attack – a number one killer.
“If I had the power to improve the nation’s health I’d prohibit daily TV commercials that tell us that something is wrong with us. I’d do this because Madison Avenue advertising is triggering false hopes and injuring health. We’ve reached a point where a well person is someone who hasn’t been seen by enough doctors, or had a battery of tests done. Then we could dump half of the pills in the trash.” – W. Gifford-Jones, MD (with a twist).
Many years ago, Dr. Linus Pauling, two-time Noble Prize winner, is ignored for reporting that large amounts of Vitamin C and Lysine are needed to prevent coronary attacks. Twenty-five years ago, Pauling reported that animals make Vitamin C while humans do not. That’s why sailors died of scurvy during long sea voyages, but the ship’s cat survived.
Vitamin C is required to manufacture healthy collagen, the glue that holds coronary cells together, just like mortar is needed for bricks. Lysine, like steel rods in concrete, makes collagen stronger. Pauling claimed that it takes a mere 10 milligrams to prevent scurvy, but several thousand to prevent heart attack.
It’s easy because the dosage for the Medi-C Plus combination is easy – one flat scoop with breakfast and the evening meal, with either water or orange juice. The only thing you can’t take it with is *Grapefruit juice.
*Grapefruit juice and fresh grapefruit can interfere with the action of some prescription drugs, as well as a few non-prescription drugs. Grapefruit most commonly interacts with drugs taken for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, depression, anxiety, allergies, HIV, impotence, and seizures. If you’re taking medication for any of these conditions, avoid grapefruit as a snack or juice. To be on the safe side, also stay away from tangelos, which are a hybrid of tangerine and grapefruit.
