Overlooked Virus Killer
Sales of vitamin C supplements have tripled in the last few weeks… And the most powerful kind of vitamin C is sold out on Amazon. (More on that in a minute.) I’m glad to see people turning to vitamin C. But the the chewable form you usually find at the drugstore won’t give you the boost you’re looking for. You see, absorption — or bioavailability — is an issue, and your body can only absorb about 500 mg of this conventional form of vitamin C before you hit saturation. And that’s nowhere near enough. In a moment I’ll show you a better form of vitamin C… and how you can take ...

Vitamin deficiency we are all born with
I’ve admired Linus Pauling for years. In 1976, the Nobel Prize-winning chemist gave mega doses of vitamin C to 100 “untreatable” cancer patients. He then compared these so-called terminal patients to patients with the same kind of cancer who didn’t get vitamin C. The patients who received the traditional cancer treatment lived for an average of six months. Pauling’s patients lived — on average — for six years. You’d think that the medical community would have heralded Pauling’s research as a huge breakthrough in cancer treatment. But they didn’t. And they still don’t. Despite groundbreaking research...

Prediabetes drug increases risk of diabetes!
Raise your hand if your doctor has ordered a blood test to check your glucose. Most do, whether or not you have symptoms of diabetes. If your fasting blood sugar is 125 mgm/dL or above you are considered a diabetic. But if your number comes in between 108 and 125 they’ll say you have “prediabetes.”  That’s a condition where your cells have a resistance to the hormone insulin. Your body uses insulin to put glucose into your cells where it can provide energy. But with insulin resistance, your cells are slow to take up glucose. It builds up in your blood.  Over a lifetime, 70-75% of people diagnose...
