We do not believe, that a „balanced diet“ (whatever is meant by this BS – term) contains all necessary vitamins and minerals. We support Stone and Paulings research – findings, that 10.000-12.000 mg Ascorbate Acid (Vitamin C) is a good idea for a daily dosis. We support the research – findings, that a plant based whole-food lifestyle can reverse Cardio-Vascular Disease. Clinical experience and observe results (also called anecdotal evidence) trump or outweigh published research and beliefs every time.

Die 5 Stadien des Vitaminmangels:

Ein Mangel an Vitaminen lässt sich erst bei schweren Mangelzuständen anhand der Blutspiegel feststellen, denn selbst wenn die Vitaminspeicher der Zellen entleert sind, können die Blutspiegel noch „normal“ sein. Der Wissenschaftler Brubacher hat daher 1983 die sechs Stadien der Entwicklung eines Vitaminmangels eingeführt:

1.Stufe: Die Gewebespeicher werden teilweise entleert, während die Blutspiegel noch stimmen

2.Stufe: Umsatz und Ausscheidung sind vermindert, der Blutspiegel unverändert

3.Stufe: Vitaminabhängige Enzymreaktionen werden eingeschränkt

In den ersten drei Stadien kann man klinisch noch nichts erkennen. Hier können jedoch bereits langfristig die Ursachen für spätere chronische Erkrankungen gelegt werden.

4.Stufe: Die ersten unspezifischen klinischen Symptome werden sichtbar, selbst jetzt kann der Blutspiegel noch Normalität vortäuschen

5.Stufe: Nun erst zeigen sich charakteristische Mangelsymptome, die sich jedoch durch Zufuhr der entsprechenden Vitamine noch beheben lassen

6.Stufe: Irreversible Gewebs- und Organschäden, die auch durch Zufuhr des entsprechenden Vitamins nicht mehr behebbar sind

Es ist keine toxische Obergrenze für Vitamin C bekannt.

Berlinische Monatsschrift, Dezemberausgabe 1784 in Beantwortung der Frage: Was ist Aufklärung? –

Immanuel Kant: „Aufklärung ist der Ausgang des Menschen aus seiner selbst verschuldeten Unmündigkeit. Unmündigkeit ist das Unvermögen, sich seines Verstandes ohne Leitung eines anderen zu bedienen. Selbstverschuldet ist diese Unmündigkeit, wenn die Ursache derselben nicht am Mangel des Verstandes, sondern der Entschließung und des Mutes liegt, sich seiner ohne Leitung eines andern zu bedienen. Sapere aude! Habe Mut, dich deines eigenen Verstandes zu bedienen! ist also der Wahlspruch der Aufklärung.“

What a Single Fatty Meal Can Do to Our Arteries

Written By Michael Greger M.D. FACLM on October 12th, 2017

The phenomenon of postprandial angina was described more than 200 years ago: chest pain that occurs after a meal, even if you’re just sitting down and resting. This could be intuitively attributed to redistribution of blood flow away from the heart to the gut during digestion. However, such a mechanism could not be demonstrated experimentally.

The problem appears to be within the coronary arteries themselves. The clue came in 1955 when researchers found they could induce angina in people with heart disease just by having them drink fat. My video Fatty Meals May Impair Artery Function includes a fascinating graph of so-called lactescence, or milkiness, over time. It shows how their blood became increasingly milky with fat over the next five hours, and each of the ten attacks of angina was found to occur about four-and-a-half to five hours after the fatty meal, right when blood milkiness was at or near its peak. After a nonfat meal with the same bulk and calories, but made out of starch, sugar, and protein, no anginal pain was elicited in any of the patients.

To understand how the mere presence of fat in the blood can affect blood flow to the heart, we need to understand the endothelium, the inner lining of all of our blood vessels. Our arteries are not just rigid pipes; they are living, breathing organs that actively dilate or constrict, thinning or thickening the blood and releasing hormones, depending on what’s needed. This is all controlled by the single inner layer, the endothelium, which makes it the body’s largest endocrine (hormone-secreting) organ. When it’s all gathered up, the endothelium weighs a total of three pounds and has a combined surface area of 700 square yards.

We used to think the endothelium was just an inert layer lining our vascular tree, but now we know better.

Researchers found that low-fat meals tend to improve endothelial function, whereas high-fat meals tend to worsen it. This goes for animal fat, as well as isolated plant fats, such as sunflower oil. But, maybe it’s just the digestion of fat rather than the fat itself? Our body can detect the presence of fat in the digestive tract and release a special group of hormones and enzymes. Researchers tried feeding people fake fat and found that the real fat deprived the heart of blood while the fake fat didn’t. Is our body really smart enough to tell the difference?

A follow-up study settled the issue. Researchers tried infusing fat directly into people’s bloodstream through an IV to sneak it past your mouth and brain. Within hours, their arteries stiffened, significantly crippling their ability to relax and dilate normally. So, it was the fat after all! This decrease in the ability to vasodilate coronary arteries after a fatty meal, just when you need it, could explain the phenomenon of after-meal angina in patients with known coronary artery disease.

This effect could certainly help explain the findings in Low Carb Diets and Coronary Blood Flow. My video Olive Oil and Artery Function addresses less refined fats like extra virgin olive oil.

For more on angina, see the beginning of my 2014 annual talk—From Table to Able: Combating Disabling Diseases with Food—and How Not to Die from Heart Disease.

Another consequence of endothelial dysfunction is lack of blood flow to other organs. Check out Survival of the Firmest: Erectile Dysfunction and Death and Atkins Diet: Trouble Keeping It Up.

Fat in the bloodstream can also impair our ability to control blood sugar levels. Learn more with What Causes Insulin Resistance?The Spillover Effect Links Obesity to Diabetes, and Lipotoxicity: How Saturated Fat Raises Blood Sugar.
