Most people are familiar with the term “limey” for a sailor, and know that its origin came from the fact that sailors were advised to eat limes and other citrus fruits to avoid developing scurvy. Although scurvy has been described and documented as far back as Hippocrates, it was not until the 1700s when a Scottish captain in the British Royal Navy, Dr. James Lind, proved that eating citrus fruit prevented scurvy. Deciding it was the acidic nature of the citrus fruit, doctors of that time thought limes would be even more beneficial and thus the British Royal Navy stocked limes on their ships.
Since that time a great deal of research and study has gone into documenting what the constituents of these fruits are and how they benefit our health. Due to this work we have greatly advanced our understanding of ascorbic acid. It has been widely used clinically and nutritionally as an antioxidant; for immune support; as treatment for colds and the flu; to support adrenal function; for its ability to make healthy tissue through the formation and maintenance of collagen; to assist with a wide range of viral, bacterial, and fungal infections; and for inflammatory problems of all kinds.
Alka-C is ascorbic acid from ascorbates. Ascorbic acid has been shown to be absorbed into the body within two hours and be gone from the blood within three to four hours. It is used up more rapidly under stressful situations, with diabetes, in the elderly, with smoking and with alcohol use. It is likely the most well known and most commonly supplemented vitamin.
The combination of ascorbic acid, other chelated forms of minerals and a significant amount of bioflavonoids makes Alka-C an easily absorbed and effective vitamin C supplement and a staple for any natural home pharmacy.
