Lyme Disease and Vitamin C
Lyme Disease has been in the news a great deal recently, as more and more cases come to light. People contract Lyme Disease from the bite of an infected tick which results in a bacterial infection. In some cases, the first symptom is a red bull’s eye rash. In other cases, there is no rash at all, but a spreading infection which manifests in fever, headaches, body aches (tendons, joints, bones, muscles), fatigue, neck stiffness, arthritis with joint swelling and pain, nerve pain along with tingling and numbness, dizziness, heart palpitations, and shortness of breath.
Lyme Disease is often difficult to diagnose because its symptoms mimic other diseases. Plus, many infected individuals don’t realize they have been bitten by an infected tick. In order to provide an accurate diagnosis, your physician will run lab tests (which are often inconclusive) as well as examine you, discuss your symptoms, and get your medical history. In most cases, antibiotics are given to aid recovery, though many continue to suffer with muscle/join pains and nervous system issues. Known as post-treatment Lyme Disease syndrome (PTLDS), help often comes in the way of natural supplements.
Testimonials for Vitamin C and Lyme
Recently, here at MrRos.com, we were contacted by multiple customers who offered testimonials about the effectiveness of our Acerola Cherry in treating Lyme Disease and PTLSD, as well as controlling MCAS (Mast Cell Activation Syndrome) while other sources of Vitamin C have not been effective. The first customer offered this, “I deal with Chronic Lyme Disease. I work with a great Chinese Doc in FL, who added it to my regimen. They felt your source was a good clean source and are big on food sources versus artificial or synthetic sources. They have me taking 1 tsp twice per day.” The second said this, “It is great for the immune system, which mine is all messed up from dealing with Lyme Disease for so long. It is also good for the brain fog Lyme brings, with neuro inflammation. I also deal with a syndrome called MCAS, which is also an immune system dysfunction. Food sources of Vitamin C are great for “keeping MCAS” stable.”
Given these testimonials, it seemed a good time to explore the connection between the rich, natural Vitamin C source of Acerola Cherry in the treatment of Lyme Disease. Most animals produce their own supply of Vitamin C, but not all animals and not humans, which means these creatures must get their Vitamin C from outside sources. Historically, Vitamin C deficiency is connected with Scurvy from which many a sailor died prior to the 19th century. During that time, it was recognized that eating citrus fruit would protect against Scurvy though the science behind it was unknown. Descriptions of Scurvy have been documented to the early Egyptians and later Hippocrates, and yet it was 20th century biochemist, Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, who discovered Vitamin C and answered the question “why?” A decade later, Dr. Fred R. Klenner and Professor Linus Pauling carried Vitamin C research to the next level. Nobel Prize Winner Linus Pauling used Vitamin C himself, recommending it to all as a way to improve overall health and wellness.
The Vitamin C – Chronic Lyme Connection
In the 21st Century, Lyme Disease is rampant causing much illness with many symptoms including nutritional deficiencies. Because nutrients are key in the function and support of the immune system, nutritional deficiencies make it even more difficult to fight diseases like Lyme. While those with Lyme are often deficient in magnesium, Vitamin D-3, zinc, Vitamin C, and probiotics (beneficial gut bacteria), our focus here will be on Vitamin C.
The adrenal glands and the brain are the body’s biggest users of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is crucial in the support of immune function. It is also key in the body’s ability to manufacture collagen, balance pH, neutralizing free radicals (it is an antioxidant), detoxifying the body of heavy metals and environmental contaminants, supporting gut health, and more. On average, the recommended dosage of Vitamin C is 10 to 20 grams daily with those suffering from Lyme Disease requiring 50 to 100 grams daily. Oral powdered formulas and liposomal products, which are more easily absorbed are by the human body, are the ideal source of Vitamin C. Bottom of Form
For those suffering from Lyme Disease, which results in reduced immune function, a constant, higher than average, supply of Vitamin C is needed because humans cannot make or store Vitamin C. The high dose of Vitamin C helps the immune system fight and recover from illness, plus offers a host of additional benefits. And this leads us to Mr. Ros Natural Vitamin C Acerola Powder, which began this discussion.
Mr. Ros Acerola Cherry Powder is 100 percent pure wildcrafted and delivers one of nature’s richest sources of Vitamin C (ascorbic acid). All-natural Acerola is more easily absorbed than synthetic versions and offers an exceptional quality source for making liposomal Vitamin C.
