The 53-year-old first became a researcher at the University Clinic, in Hamburg, and then, during 1989 and 1990, at the Berlin Heart Centre.
Dr. Rath Matthias' discovery reveals that the development of atherosclerotic deposits in the arteries of the heart is triggered by a long term deficiency of vitamin C in the cells building the artery wall as a countermeasure to loosening of the endothelial barrier function. Multiple pathomechanisms that lead to the clinical manifestation of cardiovascular disease (i.e. lipoproteins deposition) are primarily defense mechanisms aiming at the stabilization of the vascular wall structure. Ascorbate deficiency is the precondition and a common denominator of human cardiovascular disease (CVD)
Premature CVD is essentially unknown in all animal species that produce high amounts of vitamin C (ascorbate) endogenously. The genetic mutation that rendered all human beings today dependent on dietary vitamin C is the universal underlying cause of CVD. The development of this condition resembles scurvy when a lack of vitamin C and resulting from it a failure in collagen production, increases the permeability of blood vessel walls resulting in perivascular bleeding. Today, our average diet provides enough vitamin C to prevent scurvy, but not enough to guarantee stable artery walls. As a consequence of suboptimal vitamin C supply, millions of tiny cracks and lesions develop in the artery walls. Subsequently, cholesterol, lipoproteins, and other blood risk factors enter the damaged artery walls to repair these lesions. With chronic vitamin C deficiency, this repair process becomes continuous leading over the course of many years to the development of atherosclerotic deposits which eventually can cause a blockage of a blood flow resulting in a heart attack or stroke.
Conclusions: This discovery provides a scientific basis for designing effective preventive and therapeutic approaches to heart disease. Modern approaches to heart disease need to refocus from ‘too high’ cholesterol in the blood to “too little” vitamin C and other natural components essential for the production of collagen, elastin, and other reinforcement molecules in the body.
This groundbreaking discovery in heart disease should be taught in every medical textbook and school. It also explains why other cardiovascular conditions, including heart failure, irregular heartbeat, high blood pressure and circulatory problems in diabetes, occur in the case of long-term vitamin deficiencies.
Ascorbate is the universal antioxidant. It is the mother molecule that sacrifices herself so that others can thrive. Ascorbate protects and enhances glutathione, Lipoic acid, taurine all the other things including tocopheryl and methylene that protects and enhances electron flow in the cell.
Dr. Alec Banham, at the Babraham Institute in Cambridge, UK. Said; “Liposomal vitamin is packaged like a bodily cell so it passes through the digestive barrier and delivers more than 90% of the nutrient directly to the bloodstream within Minutes. With over 90% of your cells will be bathed in Liposomal vitamin C. “
Vitamin C Researcher and Cardiologist Dr.Thomas Levy Says,
"Properly utilized Vitamin C can very easily displace or eliminate 50% of prescription medications".
Dr. Levy's Conclusion: "Liposomal is better than IV in the box"
