Vitamin C: Why It’s Important for Type II Diabetes

By data World Health Organization (WHO) about 360 million people suffer from type II diabetes. In fact, there are even more of them – many simply do not know about their illness, perhaps already chronic, and it stealthily destroys the body.

Most of the trouble with type II diabetes is due to the fact that the body cannot effectively use the insulin that the pancreas produces. As a result, sugar catastrophically accumulates in the blood and there is a threat of cardiovascular diseases. That is, the risk of ischemic heart attacks and strokes caused by narrowing of certain vessels increases many times over.

At the Research Institute of Doctor Matthias Rath, in which scientists under his leadership study the effects of vitamins and other micronutrients on the body, found something to oppose the harmful process. At the molecular level.

The main cause of vascular damage in type II diabetes is the confusion in metabolism, which arises from the fact that the structures of sugar and vitamin C molecules are very similar.

In a healthy body, the tiny biological pumps that line the walls of blood vessels absorb both sugar and vitamin C in optimal amounts. Their power is enough.

In diabetics, the pumps are overloaded with sugar. Cells are overflowing – both with it and with the products of its processing. Vitamin C, which previously had a beneficial effect on the entire orgasm, on the contrary, begins to be lacking. The walls of the vessels thicken, the lumen narrows, blood circulation is disturbed. Result: either a stroke or a heart attack.

As evidenced by tests on volunteers, the process of vascular degradation can be reversed by tricking the body a second time – to create an excess of vitamin C. This is about 2 grams per day. According to recent research conducted at the Research Institute of Dr. Matthias Rath, “deception” becomes several times more effective when you combine vitamin C with other micronutrients. At least with vitamins of groups B, E, D3, zinc, magnesium, chromium, vanadium and amino acids. What are scientists about reported in the specialized journal Journal of Cellular Medicine and Natural Healt.

In their opinion, the “massive attack” not only lowers blood sugar levels, but corrects already existing metabolic disorders, including the transport of glucose into the cells of the body and the secretion of insulin.

Vitamin C – ascorbic acid – is involved in the production of collagen and other important molecules that strengthen the walls of blood vessels, protect them from damage, thereby ensuring the stability of the whole organism.

Animals produce vitamin C on their own. Convert glucose into it. And they don’t suffer from atherosclerosis. At the dawn of evolution, people also had this ability. But then they lost it.

We now get our vitamin C from food, mainly vegetables and fruits. This – the minimum – amount is enough for life. But not for prevention, and even more so for healing. Need, therefore, vitamins produced artificially.


Matthias Rath runs the Dr. Rath Health Foundation and the research institute he founded. He is an associate of Nobel laureate Linus Pauling. The scientists have worked together since 1989 in California at the Linus Pauling Institute.
