Vitamin C has the particularity of to raise its level in the body already shortly after its intake, to make him reach the climax in a short time, and then descend quickly. For the level to remain relatively constant, vitamin C must be introduced at short and regular intervals.
The decisive influence of vitamin C on lymphocytes, the body's second line of defense, has been demonstrated by recent medical studies: even in lymphocytes the level of vitamin C is very high.
when the lymphocytes they are stimulated to oppose resistance to pathogens, they develop a very intense activity, during which they consume the vitamin C stored in them very quickly. If even in this case a critical limit is exceeded for which a deficiency of vitamin C occurs, the lymphocytes become increasingly weak and lose their effectiveness, until they die from a lack of this vitamin. Thus, the second line of defense of the body is also so weakened that the pathogens have a good game.
