In the scientific world, the water-soluble Vitamin C is known as Ascorbic Acid (meaning "without scurvy," the disease caused by a vitamin C deficiency). As per Philippine Generics Law, Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C is known as Ascorbic Acid. Almost all animals and plants produce their own Vitamin C. Since we depend on Vitamin C for many aspects of our biochemical functioning; humans are among only a handful of animal species that cannot produce their own supply of Vitamin C. Like other primates and guinea pigs, and a few other animals, we have no choice but to obtain this nutrient in our diet. Our body needs Vitamin C to perform about 300 metabolic functions. Vitamins A to Z cannot work without Vitamin C, but Vitamin C alone can work without any other vitamins. Since humans cannot manufacture their Vitamin C in their body, it must be obtained through diet in the form of supplements.
Right-Cee (Sodium Ascorbate, Alkaline or Non-Acidic Vitamin C) compared to Standard Vitamin C Tablets (Acidic Vitamin C):
Vitamin C in Sodium Ascorbate form is remarkably effective, especially for those suffering from chronic illnesses such as cancer, because our body absorbs it almost 8 times faster than standard Vitamin C in Acidic forms. Right-Cee® is in Crystallized Powder form to preserve potency and pureness, thus dissolves faster unlike standard Vitamin C tablets which consists of binders that dissolves slowly. With Sodium Ascorbate, 95% is used by our system and only 5% is flushed out, unlike standard Acidic Vitamin C's where only 15-25% is absorbed and 75-85% is flushed out of our system. And because of its high percentage absorption, it remains in our body tissue longer (about 12 to 14 hours) to help rebuild our system from the cellular level.
Since Right-Cee or Sodium Ascorbate is Alkaline based, or falls in the range of 7.5 to 7.8 pH, large doses of as much as 20,000 mg can be safely taken. Unlike the standard Vitamin C tablet that is Acid based and falls in the range of 2.5 to 3 pH, the maximum dosage is 1000 mg because our body cannot tolerate its acidity. You normally would not take standard Vitamin C tablets before meals to prevent hyper acidity and on occasional basis; you cannot take it if you have Ulcer and Diabetes. Sodium Ascorbate Vitamin C is "tummy friendly" because it is Non-Acidic and thus can be taken either before or after meals.
When we are born, most of our body fluids and tissues are in a slightly alkaline state (high pH). As we grow older, especially now in modern society, our body tissues and fluids often become acidic (low pH), due to the food we take, drinks, prescription drugs, pollution and stress, which we absorb on a daily basis. At pH level 6.9, the body starts to become susceptible to common viral infections like colds, cough and flu. Cancer cells thrive inside the body at a pH of 5.5. The lower the pH level the more acidic the person is, thus, the higher the uric acid and other toxins in the body, thus making the individual more prone to sickness.
