Atherosclerosis, heart attack, stroke and liposomal vitamin C
This is about arteriosclerosis, vitamin C and the heart attack. We want to devote this page entirely to the main disease arteriosclerosis, heart attack and stroke , since most patients still die from this disease to this day.
But to anticipate: Arteriosclerosis, liposomal vitamin C can have a decisive and positive effect on what is happening here, but only if you take it as a precaution, because if the arteries are already completely blocked, it is unfortunately usually too late. We therefore recommend ultrasound screening of your arteries by your doctor to avoid the worst case scenario of a heart attack or stroke.
For years we have been told that high cholesterol is directly linked to heart attack and stroke. The total cholesterol of 300 was then capped at 200, leaving half our population with high cholesterol overnight. As a result, many ‘high cholesterol patients’ have now been prescribed statins to regulate these levels down. This chemical intervention, which pushed cholesterol levels to the new norm, satisfied patient and doctor. However, some of these drugs also have devastating side effects. Among other things, they damage the liver and kidneys, which no one seems to care about. It is also now known that statins significantly damage mitochondrial function.
Atherosclerosis Vitamin C
First of all, we would like to make it clear that when measuring cholesterol, it is not the cholesterol itself that is being measured, but the means of transport that puts the cholesterol into circulation. The amount of proteins used by the cholesterol as a means of transport is therefore measured. So what we can measure and determine is traffic and traffic density of these proteins, namely LDL (low-density lipoprotein) and HDL (high-density lipoprotein).
We are now told that bad cholesterol (LDL cholesterol) is the main cause of heart attacks and strokes. Therefore, this value should be as low as possible. But we are not told how vital and important our cholesterol is for our body. That our cells (especially the mitochondria) urgently need this cholesterol and that it regulates the hormone balance and much more.
LDL and microscopic arterial injury
The transport agent LDL absorbs the cholesterol present in the liver and carries it to where our body needs it. So if brisk traffic (high LDL) is detectable, we can assume that the LDL in question is needed somewhere in our body. dr Rath, for example, says that as we age our arteries become brittle and small cracks form in the inner wall of the arteries. In order to plug these cracks and prevent further damage, the LDL now transports our cholesterol there. However, over time, so much cholesterol is deposited that our arteries narrow and eventually become impermeable to our blood. Then the well-known heart attack occurs.
LDL cholesterol the real villain?
However, no one seems to be interested in the actual cause of this artery damage, although this is what triggered the flow and increased activity of LDL in the first place. after dr Rath and many other doctors and scientists, the reason should be a vitamin C deficiency. Similar to the scurvy of the early seafarers. With a clear vitamin C deficiency, they suffered from internal bleeding because the inner walls of the arteries lost their elasticity and became permeable.
The good news, however, is that this deficiency and the resulting damage to the inner walls of the arteries can be repaired. This doesn’t happen overnight. It takes time, just as the damage has been done gradually. Vitamin C can therefore make the artery walls supple and tight again. However, this cannot be achieved by taking vitamin C tablets, since their dose and bioavailability are not nearly sufficient. See effectiveness and dosage of ‘liposomal vitamin C’ .
Vitamin C deficiency?
How come we are now deficient in vitamin C? Why is this increasingly evident today, and why was it not so in the past? Why are more and more and especially younger people dying of a heart attack today?
Certainly our unhealthy diet plays a major role. While there used to be a lot more fruit and vegetables on the menu, today it’s fast food, for example. White bread has often replaced wholemeal bread; Sugary foods and drinks are still on the rise, and consumption of sweets has increased a hundredfold during this time. It’s also important to remember that organic vegetables and fruit used to be the norm. Today you have to pay a particularly high price for this type of food (organic).
quality of food
Today’s vitamin and mineral content in vegetables and fruit can in no way compete with the quality of the past. Depleted soil, contaminated with heavy metals and pesticides and possibly genetically modified grains and fruits fill our stomachs, but the nutritional value has steadily decreased. Sweets have now flooded our market and make up an essential part of the range of goods in supermarkets. It is therefore not surprising that the necessary vitamins are no longer available in sufficient quantities in our daily food.
At this point we should also mention that today’s daily stress demands a multiple of high-quality nutrition, while its quality is declining. With all the abundance of food, we starve imperceptibly, since our stomachs fill up, but our cells do not receive the necessary substances. The result is now known to everyone: overweight children, childhood diabetes, heart attacks at younger and younger ages and cancer epidemics.
