Chewable vitamin C is worse than for your teeth than munching on refined sugar. It's the erosion of the acid on the teeth that's the culprit, not the vitamin C itself. Use a form of vitamin C that doesn't require chewing it. For more information on how vitamin C works in your cells, check out the writings online by the late Linus Pauling such as, "How vitamin C keeps you alive by balancing the atoms in the electrons of each of your cells." Just don't chew vitamin C tablets. The ascorbic acid in the tablet destroys your teeth. Take your vitamin C, if you take vitamin C in supplements, in any form where you won't have to chew the tablet or let the vitamin C remain on your teeth. If you eat a lot of fruit and vegetables, you have enough vitamin C to keep you from getting scurvy. The question is whether too many antioxidants is good or bad for your health? That's what so much research entails when it comes to the effects of vitamins and various antioxidants on individual bodies, stamina, or general health.

For example, what if your health condition permitted you to take a capsule, or even a spoonful of powder, and put it in a smoothie?

Then you brushed your teeth. Or rinsed your mouth with a little baking soda in water to alkalize your mouth and teeth. Don't let the ascorbic acid remain on your teeth. You want to prevent erosion from the ascorbic acid in the vitamin C.

Which vitamin is the subatomic life force that enables your cells to reproduce normally and balance? The good vitamin C battles the rust-wielding free radicals that wear out your cells. The vitamin C is programmed to win because its mission is the bring balance and harmony—peace to the atoms in the electrons of each of your cells.

Here's how vitamin C keeps you alive by balancing the atoms in the electrons of each of your cells. In the 65 steps, below explained in plain language, see how protein is absorbed by your body as amino acid due to the action of Vitamin C, the creator of life. Without ascorbic acid normal cell division stops. One result is cancer.

The life force in vitamin C balances the electrons in the atoms of all your cells to help each cell to divide normally. Then vitamin C becomes the receptor, absorbing free radicals that age each cell. It’s a battle between good and evil.

Here’s each step of how the life force built into vitamin C balances the atoms in each of your cells as if it were a gyroscope or spinning top

The abstract notion of a life force can be visualized as concrete, detailed, and practical at the atomic level. Here's how your system works to balance itself. Look for What Keeps Your Cells in Balance and Helps Cells to Reproduce at the Atomic, Molecular, and Chemical Levels

There's an excellent, informative article that originally appeared in Nutrition Today, September/October 1979, Volume 14, Number 5, pp. 6-7, 15-19, and also is referenced in another article online written by Cortez F. Enloe, MD, “How Vitamin C Really Works—Or Does It?” Other contributors include: Albert Szent-Györgyi, M.D., Peter Stone, and Herbert L. Hartley, M.D.-- Here are some of the ways that vitamin C works to transfer energy in each of your cells so that your cells reproduce normally and stay in electronic balance. It's all about how vitamin C revives cellular life by desaturating your cellular proteins.

It's all done at the subatomic level to stabilize your cells so that they can reproduce normally, says that article. How is life created at the subatomic level in each cell of your body throughout your lifetime? These are the main steps.

1. Protein is dead if you eat protein from a dead animal. But your live cells contain protein molecules.
2. You body breaks down protein into amino acids.
3. The amino acids are absorbed.
4. Those protein molecules don’t react if their atoms stay balanced electronically.
5. Suddenly your body removes one electron from that amino acid molecule.
6. Energy transfer then begins. (It’s that life force behind it causing the energy transfer.)
7. Activity moves faster. The life force restores the atom and its parent molecule to live again like a Frankenstein monster (or bride) with a purpose.
8. That purpose is to live and do its destined duty in your body.
9. What makes it alive again? It’s the act of energy exchange. Some life force in your body is making that energy exchange possible.
10. There must be an imbalance of electrons before energy exchange happens.
11. Your body starts out in electronic balance.
12. Your body’s protein molecules are inactive because the electrons in each of your body’s atoms stay electronically balanced.
13. Your electrons are paired off.
14. Those electrons now spin in opposite directions.
15. The electrons are spinning on different planes.
16. Each of your electrons keeps its host atom in balance.
17. The atom is located in the protein molecule of each of your cells.
18. Your electrons look like a gyroscope.
19. Each electron spins upright and keeps its balance.
20. The host atom is in the protein molecule in the cell.
21. If along comes an object of another weight on one side of the perfectly balanced protein molecule, the molecule will fall like an unbalanced spinning top.
22. Now, the activity stops.
23. To revive the life in the molecule, you have to find something to remove one electron.
24. That something is ascorbic acid, a force to be reckoned with that removes the electron.
25. But it has to be whole foods vitamin C, not synthetic. One part of it, just the ascorbic acid has the life force in it to remove that electron. The purpose of ascorbic acid in your body is to remove that electron causing your whole bodily spinning top to be unbalanced.
26. Now the electron is removed by the ascorbic acid.
27. However, your intracellular system is now out of balance again. But it’s alive.
28. What’s life? It’s the void space between inertness and balance, at least according to the scientist, Albert Szent-Györgyi. For more on this topic, see the article written by Cortez F. Enloe, MD, “How Vitamin C Really Works—Or Does It?” Other contributors include: Albert Szent-Györgyi, M.D., Peter Stone, and Herbert L. Hartley, M.D.
29. When one of your electron’s stabilizing helper that kept it in perfect balance suddenly disappears, that unbalanced electron left standing without anything to balance it, then becomes a free radical.
30. As the electron disappears, it leaves a big hole where the charged field used to be.
31. Then all the other electronics have to fight wearing themselves out, growing tired just trying to get balanced again. It’s disorder.
32. That disorder is what life in a cell is about, according to Szent-Györgyi, M.D. So life is disarray trying to get back balance over and over again?
33. The atoms of your body’s protein molecules are sleeping or lying dormant, enjoying the harmony of balance.
34. To create life, or to bring the atoms to life, Szent-Györgyi notes, they have to be ‘desaturated’ by removing an electron. That’s how you create life. You remove an electron.
35. Life happens when some life force (ascorbic acid) removes an electron. Then the atom divides in a normal way without overdriving to cancer. The ascorbic acid enters a cell and removes an electron. By doing this, it creates life, according to Szent-Györgyi.
36. When the atom in your electron divides because it has reacted to ascorbic acid (vitamin C), it has accepted that substance.
37. What makes the atom in your cell accept ascorbic acid is a substance called methylglyoxal.
38. Methylglyoxal comes from the enzyme glyoxalase.
39. Then methylglyoxal has its own action in your cell.
40. Ascorbic acid does its duty as a salt in your cell. That salt is called oxygen-loving ascorbate.
41. Each one of your cells contains oxygen. The ascorbate gives one of its electrons to the oxygen. (Is this not the life force?) As the ascorbate gives up one of its electrons to the oxygen, it becomes a receptor to ingest your free radicals. Free radicals “rust out” your body and cause you to age faster.
42. The ascorbate takes an electron from methylglyoxal that it finds in the protein inside your cells. You can say it methylates you. Get methylated is your slogan.
43. The ascorbate “desaturates” that electron taken from methylglyoxal.
44. The result now is that ascorbic acid gives protein ‘life.’ There’s a whole, brave new intracellular universe in your body.
45. This theory is attributed to Szent-Györgyi, M.D. He concludes that, according to the article, “How Vitamin C Really Works—Or Does It?” “Ascorbic acid acts at the very center of life. It gives cells their liveliness.”
46. Ascorbic acid’s purpose in life is to promote normal cellular division. Without ascorbic acid doing its balancing purpose, cells go tangent, as in developing cancer.
47. Dr. Szent-Györgyi “sees ascorbate as essential to the exchange of energy.”
48. The exchange enables your cell to divide and reassemble its structure.
49. A sequence in balance results in two healthy cells where formerly there was one, according to the article, “How Vitamin C Really Works—Or Does It?” Without ascorbic acid, normal cell division stops. One result is cancer.
50. According to the article, How Vitamin C Really Works—Or Does It?” Dr. Szent-Györgyi theorizes that the “degree of electron saturation and desaturation determines whether the cell remains or divides abnormally and becomes cancerous.”
51. The required role of Vitamin C is to draw electrons out of balance and desaturate the cellular proteins.
52. You need enough vitamin C that works best for your own body. Tailor your intake to your own inherited and environmental needs.
53. If you take vitamin C, why take only ascorbic acid if it is just one part of the whole foods vitamin C? Why not take a whole foods vitamin C tablet? That way, you’ll get the required ascorbic acid. And you’ll also get the rest of the bioflavinoids in vitamin C.
54. According to the book, The Calcium Lie, page 88, by Robert Thompson, M.D. and Kathleen Barnes (2008), “Vitamin C molecules also contain P, K, and J factors, tyrosinase enzyme, 14 known bioflavinoids, various ascorbigens, five copper ions, iron, manganese, zinc, selenium, phosphorus, magnesium, and ascorbic acid.”
55. Vitamin C has “extremely complex” molecules and possibly hundreds of other nutrients present in that molecule. Your body is totally dependent upon the whole vitamin C molecule. A dog can make his/her own vitamin C, but as a human, you need to get it from food (or supplements and food) to survive.
56. The question is: do pieces of the vitamin C molecule have the same effects as the whole C molecules? Nutritionists and physicians usually are any new evidence to read. There are many theories.
57. Another question is whether ascorbic acid alone has the same effects as a drug? There are two sides to the story.
58. On the other hand, your body isn’t going to survive without ascorbic acid. Is it better to take it with other food and whole food supplements?
59. Ascorbic acid alone has been shown to have some antibiotic-like effects. But according to, The Calcium Lie, page 88, it “also blocks the absorption of the whole C molecule, as well as interfere with its benefits and cause its excretion in the urine, depleting your body’s stores of the whole vitamin C molecule.”
60. Most vitamin C on the market today is ascorbic acid or variations of it, according to The Calcium Lie, page 88. “Ascorbic acid is cheap to synthesize and isolate in a lab with very little or no plant material.”
61. The solution is not to take Vitamin C as a drug. Instead, get your vitamin C from both whole foods and a vitamin supplement.
62. The supplement should read on the label that it’s from whole food.
63. The ideal vitamin C supplement would be made from, according to The Calcium Lie, page 89, “vine ripened, organically produced, alcohol extracted, whole foods, without heat.” Otherwise, “it’s a drug.”
64. Vitamins are very complex, and never made up of only one nutrient. Your body also needs whole foods (vegetables and fruits and some soaked or slightly sprouted grains and legumes) with nutrients not killed by heat and processing. What’s only a theory today about aging and cell balancing, and about how vitamins keep cells dividing normally and in balance, tomorrow may be proven true as future evidence emerges. Much of the science fiction of 1900 is true today.

65. Look at what happens at the atomic level to collect the evidence of what occurs at the metabolic level and chemical. The 'cure' or stabilization of balance is at the cause or root of the imbalance, in the electrons, not only with the symptom. The 'ying' and the 'yang' of balance still works when scientists think of it as sub-atomic approaches to nutrition.
