Dr. Gifford-Jones created Medi-C plus, to help humans supplement Vitamin C and Lysine. Vitamin C and Lysine work together to build collagen, which strengthens and holds together the coronary cells. Inadequate amounts of the vitamin C mean poor collagen. Medi-C Plus produces healthy collagen, dissolves cholesterol deposits, reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease and increases the blood flow to coronary arteries. Great tasting Berry Flavour.
Vitamin C and Lysine work together to build collagen, which strengthens and holds together the coronary cells. Inadequate amounts of the vitamin C mean poor collagen. Coronary cells then fall apart just as bricks do without a good mortar. Coronary arteries, closest to the heart, receive the greatest pressure and without enough vitamin C the collagen weakens. This sets the stage for a heart attack. The work of Dr. Sydney Bush shows that vitamin C + lysine can help reverse the process.
Vitamin C is essential for the production of a protein called collagen, which in turn plays an integral role in cartilage, tendons, ligaments, blood vessels and skin. As such, vitamin C is necessary for the fast and effective healing of wounds and injuries to these areas, all over the body. It promotes less visible scarring during healing, as the body is only able to form new tissue with the help of vitamin C. Along with calcium, vitamin C also helps to repair and maintain bones and teeth.
Protect your Heart
The role that vitamin C has in heart health can be summed up using one word. Protection. Studies have shown that vitamin C can protect the arteries of the body (remember collagen plays a role here, as well) against damage. Being high in antioxidants, it has been shown to slow the progression of atherosclerosis. Research does not support claims that vitamin C itself can lower cholesterol, but does support findings that suggest it can reduce damage or build up of LDL (bad cholesterol) plaques within the blood vessels. Individuals with low vitamin C levels have an increased risk of stroke, heart attack and peripheral artery disease. Individuals with diets high in antioxidants, such as those high in vitamin C rich foods, are also at a decreased risk of developing high blood pressure.
Severe vitamin C deficiency is rare, but low vitamin C levels are more and more common. Signs and symptoms include poor wound healing, easy bruising, nose bleeds, rough/dry/scaly skin, and dry, splitting hair, gingivitis and decreased immunity. These symptoms can get quite severe, with extreme deficiency known as scurvy. Cigarette smoking can seriously lower vitamin C levels. These individuals must compensate through diet or supplementation. Stress, physical and mental/emotional, can also deplete vitamin C levels, as can some medications, including Non Steroidal Anti Inflammatories (NSAID's).
There are several types of vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is the basic form. To buffer the natural acidity of vitamin C manufacturers bind it to other molecules. Two examples are calcium ascorbate (Ester-C) and ascorbyl palmitate. It also makes vitamin C easier for the body to absorb and decreases the loss of the vitamin through the urine. This increases the cost of the supplement but it is beneficial to those taking high doses of vitamin C, those who cannot tolerate acidic substances, and those with compromised absorption or digestive processes. Vitamin C comes in a variety of dosage forms including conventional capsules, time-released caps/tablets, syrups, powders and chewable tablets. A qualified practitioner can administer it intravenously. Vitamin C is usually derived from corn or dextrose but tapioca-sourced C is also available. Vitamin C is often combined with bioflavonoids, like hesperidin and rutin. These substances work synergistically with Vitamin C. Rose hips are a good substitute for straight vitamin C because they are the richest natural source of vitamin C. Rose hips are also a good source of bioflavonoid.
The amino acids that the body cannot produce, and need to be taken in through the diet, are called essential. Lysine is one of these amino acids. Lysine plays an important role in the metabolism of protein, carbohydrates and fatty acids. Thus it builds muscle (athletic enhancement) and rebuilds muscle after periods of illness or inactivity. It is also a component of connective tissue and brain chemicals.
Lysine is involved in growth and bone development because it increases the absorption and deposition of calcium. Lysine and another amino acid, methionine, forms carnitine. Carnitine helps cells use fats for energy production.
By competing with arginine for absorption, lysine limits the reproduction of herpes virus and prevents herpes outbreaks (cold sores). Lysine improves cardiovascular health by removing components of atherosclerotic plaques. It has been shown to increase the diameter of vessels and improve blood flow. Natural health practitioners for angina, poor circulation, herpes simplex, osteoporosis, improved athletic performance, convalescence and high triglyceride levels recommend lysine.
The biologically active form of lysine is L-lysine. It is commonly found in capsules. Lysine and arginine compete for absorption so supplements of these amino acids should be taken at different times. It is often combined with vitamins and anti-viral agents for prevention of herpes outbreaks. Take amino acid supplements at least 1/2 hour before or after a meal to maximize their absorption. If you take an individual amino acid supplement for longer than one month, add an amino acid complex to the protocol to prevent the deficiency of other amino acids.
High arginine intake will lower lysine levels. Individuals with kidney disease should use lysine cautiously.
