The Connection Between Collagen and VitaminC

So collagen is said to be the glue that holds our bodies together. Collagen keeps our ligaments moving smoothly and our skin and hair elastic and strong. It is needed to replace dead skin cells with new skin cells.
Collagen contributes to the formation of connective tissue and can seal and heal the protective lining of the gastrointestinal tract.  Eating bone broths which are  high in collagen, is said to improve your collagen levels. We can also support our body to convert collagen to a usable protein by increasing our vitamin C intake. When we have adequate vitamin C levels the collagen we eat can be transformed into energy.

In this deep, yet super easy to follow article on collagen Dr. Josh Axe explains all things collagen and clearly states that “In order for collagen to be activated in the body, you always want to take your supplements with a source of amino acids and vitamin C

Another article of interest by W.J. McCormick, MD  which can be found at Selene River Press discusses the fact that “cancer tends to take root mainly in areas of the body that have become depleted in collagen—the elastic connective tissue responsible for “cementing” cells in their place. As collagen diminishes, he says, cancerous cells become free to exercise their natural “amoeboid activity” and move to other parts of the body (i.e., metastasize). Since the body requires vitamin C to produce collagen, Dr. McCormick argues, it stands to reason that a deficiency of  vitamin C enables the spread of cancer—a notion supported by the fact that cancer patients tend to be severely depleted in the nutrient.”

So when you tell your nurse or doctor that you are taking high dose vitamin C each day and the reply is “well at least you won’t catch a cold” don’t forget to tell them about how you are supporting yourself in so many more ways, inside and out.

My breast cancer nurse said the same to me recently, and it just showed me that the world really needs to get up to speed with the importance of increasing and maintaining high levels of vitamin C. She was right, I have not caught a cold or flu since I began taking it…and there is so many more benefits I’m enjoying that sadly many more cancer patients could be sharing in too.

The Power of Phospholipids in Life Energy C; High Dose Vitamin C

This article explores the research that says ingesting high concentrations of quality phosphatidylcholine (PC) provides enormous health benefits in terms our liver, cardiovascular, kidney, lung, gastrointestinal (GI), neurologic, and skin functions.

PC is an essential Phospholipid. Each teaspoon (5g) of Life Energy C contains 1g of Vitamin C in the form of Ascorbic Acid which is directly deposited into our cells due to the fact that it is encapsulated within 4 grams of phospholipids made from non-GMO sunflower seeds. Read wonderful article on the incredible power of phospholipids here

Collection of Articles on Lecithin

This article belwo was written by Kalli Harrison for  www.livestrong.com and is worth reading to understand more about the benefits of consuming the lecithin in which the vitamin c is encapsulated.

Benefits of Phosphatidylcholine

by KALLI HARRISON 

Phosphatidylcholine is a ubiquitous, naturally occurring phospholipid molecule. It is the major lipid, or fat, of cell membranes and blood proteins. Also known as PC, phosphatidylcholine serves as the body’s main source of choline, an essential nutrient and precursor to the neurotransmitter, acetylcholine. PC is also necessary for the production of surfactants, which are critical for lung function and gastrointestinal health. The terms “phosphatidylcholine” and “lecithin” are sometimes used interchangeably; however, lecithin is actually a mixture of several lipids and phospholipids.

Liver Health

PC is necessary for the composition and repair of cell membranes and is vital for normal liver function. Research indicates PC’s most beneficial role is in the prevention and treatment of various forms of liver disease and toxicity. PC protects liver cells from viral damage, reduces fibrosis, and prevents cell death from drugs, alcohol and other chemical toxins.

Several studies have shown PC’s protective and healing effect on patients with hepatitis A, B and C. In a double blind trial published in the journal Liver, PC administration for chronic, active hepatitis resulted in significant reduction of disease activity. Another study in Hepatology, revealed that choline-deficient patients had a reversal of hepatic steatosis, or fatty liver disease, upon choline supplementation. Additionally, a study from the journal Alcoholism: Clinical and Experimental Research, resulted in PC protection of rat liver cells from alcohol-induced toxicity. The authors propose that phosphatidylcholine reduces cell death through a reduction in oxidative stress.

Intestinal Health

Phosphatidylcholine is a major lipid in the protective mucus layer of the gastrointestinal tract. It can mitigate GI injury by exerting an anti-inflammatory effect. A recent study in BMC Gastroenterology, shows that PC inhibits pro-inflammatory substances and is beneficial for those suffering from ulcerative colitis.

Emerging evidence also indicates that PC can protect the stomach and intestinal lining from the damaging effects of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, also called NSAIDs. Using a combined product of the NSAID, naproxen and PC, a study in Inflammopharmacology states that ” Naproxen-PC appears to induce significantly less GI injury and bleeding in two rodent model systems while maintaining anti-inflammatory and COX-inhibitory activity.”

Neuropsychiatric Disorders

Phosphatidylcholine’s importance in cell membrane integrity and intracellular communication has led to research in the area of neurology. Although studies are limited, data suggests PC supplementation can reduce symptoms of illnesses associated with low levels of acetylcholine including, schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, Huntington’s chorea, Tourette’s syndrome and Alzheimer’s disease. Results from a study in the Journal Proteome Research, revealed that lipid abnormalities within the brain and blood may be factors in the disease processes of both schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

What Phospholipids Do

Because the phosphate group in the phospholipid is charged, it allows this lipid to mix with both fat and water, making it amphipathic. This is why phospholipids are able make up the outer membranes of cells. Phospholipids form a double-layer membrane — or bilayer — around the contents of the cell, with the phosphate heads facing both the inside and outside of the cell, and the fatty acids in rows that face each other within the membrane, helping to form a water-repelling barrier. This barrier keeps the aqueous contents of the cell separate from the aqueous exterior. However, the phospholipid membrane does allows small — albeit important — molecules to pass into and out of the cell, such as oxygen and carbon dioxide.

While phospholipids are important as cell membranes, that’s not their only role in your body. These fats are also crucial for digestion. In the stomach, phospholipids help break fats down so they’re easier to digest, and in the small intestine, the phospholipids in bile help emulsify fats so they can be carried in blood.

Sunflower Lecithin is better than soy lecithin

So, as this wonderful article explains, not only is soy lecithin unsuitable for women like myself healing their ER+ breast cancer, but soy is actually an inferior product to sunflower lecithin in so many ways!
I’m feeling so grateful that I made the switch to sunflower lecithin. My digestive system, my liver, my brain and my nervous system are now getting the very best support with my high dose Liposomal vitamin C made on sunflower lecithin.

Josephine writes…”The presence of a purported cancer-causing chemical in the extraction process of soy lecithin called hexane makes it infinitely more toxic than sunflower lecithin, which is obtained by cold pressing. Cold pressing is a much more expensive process, however, and this is why sunflower lecithin is costlier than soy lecithin. Nevertheless, it is by far the more superior lecithin extract.”
