Both Arguments Have Merit

What is vitamin C? Is there such a thing as a vitamin C complex? Why do so many people now believe in the complex?

Both Arguments Have Merit

Dr. Fonorow - I think my father might be open to using the Ascorbade, so hopefully one of these days I'll be able to call and order it. I do admit, though, to being confused by the whole debate of ascorbic acid vs. the Standard Process/Royal Lee school of thought; not confused, actually, it's just that both arguments have a lot of merit.

Hmmm. I am interested in the reasons you think the so-called Royal Lee argument "has a lot of merit" visa vis vitamin C?

I have addressed the reasons why I believe the Royal Lee argument has little or no scientific merit here:

And we have devoted this entire forum to the issue -> Vitamin C Complex

There is no such thing as a vitamin C complex which cures scurvy, or keeps people alive. Only a form of ascorbate, e.g. ascorbic acid can do that. There is little in science that is as cut and dried.

Furthermore, many D.C's marketing "natural" vitamin C products have markups over 1500%, all for throwing some rose hips into a jar.

Furthermore, all Standard Process's products that contain over 500 mg of vitamin C have "ascorbic acid" on the label, etc.
