The central debate regarding vitamin C usage is optimal intake. Clinicians have witnessed the extraordinary results effected by much higher doses. The authors explain the ins and outs of vitamin C absorption (demonstrating the need not just for high doses but also divided dosages), detailing the forms of vitamin C, and debunking warnings about potential side effects. Vitamin C: The Real Story
is a timely and valuable clarion call that cuts through misleading blather and making a strong case for the orthomolecular use of vitamin C.(Townsend Letter)
"Readers of this book will learn to distinguish the true facts about vitamin C from false factoids. Steve Hickey, PhD and Andrew Saul, PhD present the facts clearly and carefully. Their fascinating book presents some truly remarkable discoveries, introduces us to vitamin C's multiple health-maintaining functions, and outlines its health-restoring capabilities."(Journal of Orthomolecular Medicine)
