Orti C is formulated based on the research of Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath into the role of lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] in cardiovascular health, and the evolutionary relationship between Lp(a) and vitamin C. The ingredients in TLC 3.0 are factors in the maintenance of good health.
Ortic C represents a true orthomolecular heart health formulation with testimonials from case reports that indicate amazing results. TLC 3.0 contains an unprecedented combination of nutrients to keep blood vessels strong based on the research of the late Dr. Linus Pauling (along with Dr. Matthias Rath), who made a connection between vitamin C and atherosclerosis.
Orti C is designed to preserve the health of blood vessels by preventing the build-up of arterial plaques. High-dose vitamin C helps to produce collagen, which in turn heals, strengthens and protects the arteries, particularly against the potential danger posed by a circulating lipoprotein known as Lp(a). Lp(a) binds to injured blood vessels, rapidly delivering the cholesterol needed to regenerate the cell wall. Of course, this is how atherosclerotic plaque is formed. Lysine and proline provide alternate binding sites for Lp(a), reducing its ability to attach to the blood vessels and allowing vitamin C to do its healing work. Taurine, magnesium, potassium and calcium are also essential for maintaining a regular heartbeat, and for good muscle and nerve function in the heart.
Lysine & Proline: Free L-lysine can act as a kind of molecular “chaff,” tying up the LBS and preventing Lp(a) from binding to the kind of lysine residues present in the blood vessels. And L-proline has an even greater binding affinity for Lp(a) than does L-lysine itself, because of a domain outside the LBS which is sensitive to both L-lysine and L-proline. In fact, L- proline appears to have additional Lp(a)-fighting benefits not shared by vitamin C or L-lysine. In addition to its more potent affinity for Lp(a)’s binding sites, L- proline interferes with the formation of a complex between Lp(a) and triglyceride-rich lipoproteins which is common in people with high triglycerides and which appears to further increase the uptake of Lp(a) by the arteries. As well, recent evidence suggests that L-proline intervenes in the formation of Lp(a) by keeping apo(a) from binding to the apoB in LDL cholesterol molecule to form Lp(a).
Cardiovascular Disease & Vitamin C : Humans and other primates are nearly the only animals that develop atherosclerosis: rabbits and other rodents can be forced to develop heart disease if they are fed a diet loaded with saturated fat and cholesterol, but the disease process is very different from that seen in humans. The one exception is the guinea pig – the only rodent that does not synthesize its own vitamin C. In the 1950s, the Canadian cardiologist Dr. GC Willis demonstrated that guinea pigs on a diet lacking saturated fat or cholesterol develop lipid deposits in their arteries, which are morphologically identical to human atherosclerosis – if their diet is also low in vitamin C. Even more excitingly, Dr. Willis found that this atherosclerosis could be reversed by high-dose vitamin C supplementation. A small human pilot study confirmed this observation .
Why 3 Grams Vitamin C Per Day: Pauling and Rath repeated and expanded Dr. Willis’ work, showing that the amount of vitamin C required to prevent the development of atherosclerosis in the hypoascorbemic guinea pig is 40 milligrams per kilogram of body weight. In a 70 kilogram human, the experimental data thus suggests that a minimum requirement of 2 800 mg of vitamin C per day would be required to prevent heart disease in our own species.
Orti C is ideal for those looking for a high-dose vitamin C formula or electrolyte formula, or for those who are concerned about their cardiovascular health.
