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.

What does the United States Cancer Institute have to say about high dose Vitamin C in relation to Cancer?

Researchers are not as up to date as they need to be in regards to the latest form of high dose vitamin C; liposomal vitamin C, which is also taken orally, but is not absorbed the same way as an oral or powdered vitamin C. Oral vitamin C is referred to in the current day research in a less positive light than intravenous vitamin C because it is not able to be absorbed into our cells in high doses.
Liposomal vitamin C is different than oral vitamin C referred to in the studies because it bi-passes most of the gastrointestinal system, and enters the cells directly via the phospholipids in which it is encapsulated. Liposomal vitamin C therefor it is most similar to intravenous vitamin C.

So when reading articles on vitamin C studies remember not to confuse liposomal vitamin C with oral vitamin C studies and think of it more like a less invasive safer form of  intravenous vitamin C that it is possible to take in equally high doses, in the comfort of your home, without upsetting the digestive system.

A Personal Cancer Story
“I used high dose vitamin C therapy in conjunction with radiation to a tumor on my spine and continue to use the high dose vitamin C every day. At my oncologist meeting in Jan 2018, my oncologist agreed that the images from my last CT and bone scans showed not only stability but signs of ‘contrast filling in’ and that this could indicate that healing was taking place on my spine. She also told me that my blood tests showed that my breast cancer tumour markers were in the normal persons range. I refer to my high dose vitamin C intake as my DIY immune therapy and it is one of a handful of therapies I am doing.
I have started a page within this blog where I will post articles which specifically relate to high dose vitamin C and its compatibility with chemotherapy and radiation.

Killing cancer with vitamin C: Hype or hope?

Vitamin C is involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters, such as dopamine and norepinephrine, and in the addition of the protective myelin coat to nerve cells in the brain’s white matter. In addition, it is known to have strong antioxidant properties, protecting cells from oxidative damage.
