Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, has shown a remarkable ability to reduce disease. Benefits include the prevention and treatment of scurvy, common cold, boost the immune system, lower hypertension, treatment of lead toxicity, cataracts, treatment of cancer, stroke, elasticity of skin, wound healing, and asthma. Metadichol® has shown it can help maintain high levels of plasma vitamin C without oral supplementation of vitamin C. Metadichol® is a nanoemulsion of policosanol or the waxy substance that is found in high concentration on the sunny parts of plants.
Linus Pauling, a two-time Nobel Prize winner, spent a significant effort in promoting vitamin C in the prevention and treatment of disease. He was scoffed at by the mainstream medical community. Now, there appears to be better acceptance of using vitamin C to treat disease. It is interesting to note that humans, unlike other mammals, do not make vitamin C. Goats are known to make large amounts of vitamin C each day. A one hundred fifty-pound goat can make as much as 13,000 mg each day. I typically take one to two grams of vitamin C per day. If my noise is running, I have found that it will stop in a few hours by taking a gram of vitamin C per hour.
Typical reference range for plasma vitamin C is 0.2 – 2 mg/dL or 11 – 114 µmol/L. In the study, Dr. Raghavan found that oral supplementation of 5 mg of Metadichol per day raised the plasma vitamin C to or above high normal. Speculation has been that Metadichol accomplishes this by reducing the requirement for vitamin C as the body gets healthier, recycles vitamin C, or turns on the gene responsible for producing vitamin C. In any case, this case study shows the effectiveness of Metadichol in reducing disease.
Metadichol® Induced High Levels of Vitamin C: Case Studies
Raghavan PR* Metadichol-Induced-high VitaminC levels (link to paper)
We recently reported that Metadichol®  brings about a three to four-fold increase in Vitamin C levels in patients without the use of Vitamin C supplementation. In this study of 6 patients who experienced a 5-12 fold increase in plasma Vitamin C levels higher than 80-100 u mol/L level which is the highest reported to date by oral supplementation at high doses of Vitamin C. Metadichol improved in these patients TSH levels, normalized High Blood pressure, fasting glucose levels, reduced eosinophil count, high triglycerides, body fat reduction and increased bone mass, normalized sodium levels, reducing high insulin levels, increased creatinine output in urine and also reducing of Red Cell Distribution width %. Metadichol thus serves as a surrogate for Vitamin C at doses of 5 mg per day as opposed to mega doses that are currently used.
