Vital C scam or not?

vital c scam or not
vital c scam or not?

Vital C is one of the many Networking/MLM companies that exploits one form of vitamin C which is a salt called sodium ascorbate. The company have been around for years founded by Mr Richard L. King. As of the time of this writing they already have a wide range of products but still their main product is the Vitamin C supplement. The major advantage of sodium ascorbate than the usual Vitamin C is its higher PH level compared to Ascorbic acid, which means less irritating and can be taken in higher doses. It can even be safely administered via IV. 


What is the problem with Vital C?


With sodium ascorbate form itself there is no problem. It offers a more bio-available source of vitamin C and sure enough it has wide range of advantages compared to the much cheaper form of vitamin C (ascorbic acid). The main problem here is the regulation, caution and education with the disadvantages of sodium ascorbate that is not stressed by Vital C.
I heard a lot of stories told by its distributors that Vital C has no overdose, anyone can can take is as much as they want and even encourage people to take ridiculously high doses of it for optimum health. For me it looks like they do not know what they are doing or they do not care about the danger they put people into, all they are after are the sales of their product.

I visited their official website to look for any dosage instructions or warnings but I did not found any. Instead I found some claims that I think is questionable.

see pic below:


This picture was taken from their official website: http://www.vital-c.com/main/?cat=8 
I marked it with red lines and circles to take note of those terms that I think is controversial and a proof that there is an advertisement of unregulated intake.

 

Why is it important to regulate sodium ascorbate?


Sodium ascorbate does not only comes with benefits. It also comes with considerations, warnings and side effects. This is the part where I think Vital C failed to let people know or maybe they do not want you to know. But I believe you need to know.

Read this article from livestrong.com

Effects
Sodium ascorbate and other forms of vitamin C are important for the health of bones, connective tissues and blood vessels, and help the body to absorb iron needed for the production of red blood cells. The Linus Pauling Institute notes that vitamin C also acts as a highly effective antioxidant, preventing damage to essential molecules in the body.

Benefits
Humans do not have the ability to make vitamin C, and must receive it through food sources or nutritional supplements. The FDA recommended daily allowance for vitamin C is 75 to 90 mg per day. Sodium ascorbate supplements benefit those who do not eat a diet high in vitamin C. Sodium ascorbate is preferred over ascorbic acid by those who want to avoid food acidity. This chemical can be added to many foods without affecting their flavor, although sodium ascorbate taken by itself carries a slightly salty taste.

Considerations
Because sodium ascorbate contains sodium, this form of vitamin C should be avoided by those following a low-sodium diet. A sodium tipsheet provided by the USDA Center for Nutrition Policy and Promotion cautions those trying to avoid sodium to limit their intake of sodium ascorbate and other food additives containing sodium. Talk to your doctor before taking vitamin C supplements, because some medicatons and health conditions can affect the way vitamin C is absorbed by the body.

Warning
Taken in high doses, sodium ascorbate can lead to negative health effects, including diarrhea, skin irritation and chest pain, according to the Linus Pauling Institute. The recommended upper limit for intake of all forms of vitamin C, including sodium ascorbate, has been set by the FDA at 2,000 mg daily. Prolonged high levels of sodium ascorbate can also damage the kidneys, upper respiratory tract and gastrointestinal tract. Some people may experience an allergic reaction, particularly if taking high doses of vitamin C. Talk to your doctor before taking sodium ascorbate if you have a history of kidney or liver problems or are currently pregnant or breastfeeding.

From the article above, we learned that sodium ascorbate should be moderated in various medical conditions that requires a low sodium diet. From this, two questions pops out in my mind. One, what are these medical conditions? Two, how common are these? I believe that the more common it is the more people is at risk of this what I thought to be a wrong advertisement practice of Vital C. I did my due diligence and these medical conditions came out. 
Hypertension, Congestive Heart Failure and Kidney failure. 

Now, does this medical condition looks rare to you?

 

Sodium ascorbate's disadvantages


Disadvantages is not only for ascorbic acid vitamin C, it is also present in sodium ascorbate. Even if Vital C did not mention any, it does not meat that there is none. 
Here below are some of them:

Blood Pressure Effects
One disadvantage of sodium ascorbate is its sodium content. Upon ingestion, the compound into broken into two components: the ascorbate that acts as functional vitamin C, and a sodium ion. As a result, consuming sodium ascorbate counts toward your sodium intake for the day, and excess consumption of both sodium ascorbate and sodium-containing processed foods may lead to high blood pressure over time, according to the Linus Pauling Institute at Oregon State University. If you already suffer from high blood pressure, limit your intake of sodium ascorbate, or consider taking a different type of vitamin C supplement.
  
Kidney Stones
Another possible disadvantage of sodium ascorbate supplementation is an increased risk of kidney damage and the formation of kidney stones. Your kidneys contain thousands of specialized structures, called nephrons, that act as blood filtering units. Cells within the nephrons form filtration barriers, keeping nutrients in your bloodstream, while transporting waste products into the urine. Increasing the amounts of chemicals in the blood, such as through high supplementation with sodium ascorbate, can put a strain on your kidneys as they filter your blood. The University of Maryland Medical Center (UMMC) explains that high levels of vitamin C, including sodium ascorbate, lead to the formation of crystals within the kidney, eventually causing potentially painful kidney stones. You can reduce your risk of kidney stones by limiting your vitamin C intake to 1000 mg per day, according to UMMC.

Genetic Mutations
In cases of high levels of supplementation with sodium ascorbate, you may experience serious health effects. One major disadvantage of high sodium ascorbate supplementation is an increased rate of genetic mutation. At high doses, sodium ascorbate acts as a carcinogen -- it can induce the development of genetic mutations in your cells. If you regularly take high doses of the supplement, your cells may develop cumulative mutations that may eventually lead to abnormal cell behavior. The Linus Pauling Institute explains that gene mutations due to excess vitamin C or sodium ascorbate supplementation can lead to cancer, as well as birth defects in a developing fetus. You can prevent this harmful side effect of sodium ascorbate by taking the supplement at a dosage recommended by a medical professional.

If you did read the articles it will now be clear that there are lots of the claims Vital C make that needs changing. Have a look at this another screen shot from their website:

 As you can see in the picture above, again I marked those phrases with red lines that I want you to take note of. I found it very wrong to encourage pregnant women to take HIGH doses of sodium ascorbate with the study presented by Vital C company that is more than 60 years old . I did not even see links of that said study as a reference. 
In addition, The article above that discussed the disadvantages of sodium ascorbate is updated (Article reviewed by Brandon Nolta Last updated on: Apr 26, 2011). And as you can see, it is a complete contradiction to what Vital C advise to pregnant mothers. A quote from the article about Genetic Mutation effect of sodium ascorbate clearly states "In cases of high levels of supplementation with sodium ascorbate, you may experience serious health effects. One major disadvantage of high sodium ascorbate supplementation is an increased rate of genetic mutation" and "Linus Pauling Institute explains that gene mutations due to excess vitamin C or sodium ascorbate supplementation can lead to cancer, as well as birth defects in a developing fetus".

This evidence convince me more that Vital C only cares about the sales of their sodium ascorbate vitamins and is willing to deceive people by using outdated study results that only benefits them.

 

My final words


Please do not get me wrong, I do not intend to bad mouth anyone but I need to present the facts in this situation. I need to let people be aware about the dangers brought about by wrong advertising practice. This is also not against sodium ascorbate, this is about the exaggerated health claims and excessive intake advice of Vital C that will potentially harm the public. 

The discovery of sodium ascorbate is wonderful, and it really has a lot to benefit peoples health. However, when abused it will also harm us. So I truly belive it must be regulated. 
 
Furthermore, this better form of vitamin C is more expensive than the common form ascorbic acid. And I am afraid this might not be easily accessible for the poor. They are the ones that need it badly. 
With this problem I think I maybe of help. I found out that you can easily make your sodium ascorbate at home using the cheap ascorbic acid and baking soda (sodium bicarbonate) 

 

How to make sodium ascorbate at home 


Things You'll Need

  • Bowl
  • Ascorbic acid powder
  • Baking soda

Instructions
1. Mix 2 tbsp. ascorbic acid powder with 1 tbsp. baking soda.
2. Add a small amount of water. The mixture will begin to fizz.
3. Mix gently until the fizzing stops. What you have left is sodium ascorbate. 

Tips & Warnings
  • Dosing remedies may vary. Be sure to check with your health care provider before taking any supplements.

  1. It really disgust me that they publish testimonials suggesting to cure diseases as serious as cancer and use it as an alternative to doctors medicine and procedures. Its highly unscientific, dangerous and exaggerated!

    how about the negative testimonials? of course they do not publish it but it exist. and guess what? I have one!

    I have one stroke patient that I put on a low sodium diet. His blood pressure was a great concern because it remains high even with low salt diet and hypertensive medication. It was a mystery at first why his BP never goes down. Until I discovered that he has a friend selling him Vital C and encouraging him to take high doses of it. When I read the label there is the sodium!!
    I immediately ordered that he stop taking it then his bp became normal. If I haven't discovered it and stabilized his BP on time he might be dead right now.

    there goes my story, do you think they will include it in their testimonials?
    of course not!!
    and nobody will know about it and so a lot of people will be at risk not knowing the dangers of taking high doses of sodium ascorbate.

    I also appreciate the author of this blog that he teach people how can they make sodium ascorbate at home. this will save poor people lots of money than buying Vital C which is very expensive.
    one point though, many people mistakenly use baking powder. The correct one is BAKING SODA not baking powder.

  4. Vitamin c is very basic nmn... since baby nga nag tiki2 na. sodium ascorbate, calcium ascorbate, potassium ascorbate, marami pa. iv known people na hindi maganda ung epek sa kanila. regardless of the brand... iv known then first hand na gumaling from cancer and gall stones at marami pa. well, there are two sides of the coin always. we cannot please everybody. besides, vitamins or medicines... are just ways to increase wellness. dpt on the first place pa lng, we should be aware of our health. HEALTH IS BETTER PRESERVED THAN RESTORED.

    I BELIEVE WHATEVER PRODUCTS WE TAKE, PREVENTION IS STILL BETTER THAN CURE. It's not only vital c who has these claims. I think lahat ng sodium ascorbate company have these.

    besides, our information technology is so great already. nano tech... what we learn for the past 100 yrs are very different na. as in updated... ganun na ka sophisticated. besides, reference pg uusapan, magkakatalo na lng kung sino at kung anong field of expertise nila, at kelan na research. kasi bka wala pang microscope nun.. heheh. just joking.. benefit of the doubt.

    lahat nasa internet na. wala nang secrets. yumaman or maging healthy... Everything with risks. But you'll never know unless you take risk. I think that's one irony of life.

    i'm very much open to opportunities and something new. really appreciate the good and bad. dts y i investigate... it really pays to be educated. mahirap kasi kng sino pa ung walang alam, sila pa ung marami sinasabi. kng tatanungin mo, ituturo sa nagsabi...

    its information age. we should be informed. not just relying to opinions and negative impressions. im speaking for myself.

      i was overdue for 1 week. but my baby was fine. very clean. my room mate, also bore her son overdue 1 week and her baby ate dirt, feces, and dirt materials inside. antibiotic was administered.

      im now pregnant for my 2nd baby. pls pray for me. hope all pregnant will bear a healthy child.

    2. Congratulations with your baby, I am glad to know you followed what your OB and medical consultants recommend. They know best than what is advertised. Also, your dosage may not be applicable to other pregnant mothers, It might be lesser than that, it is still best to consult their individual doctors before taking anything. It is very dangerous to assume and do what is advertised by companies like Vital C with the motive to make more sales.

      Testimonials are very subjective, not a very good basis. The best way is to read the labels printed by regulating body such as BFAD. What it is, what it is for, what it does and does not. If it is not written there then don't assume.

      If a person with cancer taking Vitamin C survived cancer, It is very ignorant for us to Immediately conclude that Vitamin C cures it. We never know what is happening inside his/her unique body and chemistry.

    3. Sodium if not coupled with chloride cannot initiate increase heart muscle contractility. Of course sodium causes depolarisation. Heart muscle are myogenic and the opening of the sodium channel is generated by virtue of the voltage gated sodium channel and the calcium -sodium tandem channels which creates the starting potential. When sodium ion gets inside the cell, chloride ion follows to create a partial re-polarization of the membrane, thus adding up more potentials to contract. When chloride is not controlled, it will surely increase heartbeat thus causing hypertension.

      After sodium has influxed, potassium ions flow outside the cell because the channel is opened when depolarization has occured. This will bring more repolarization thus there will be more potentials created. Now after this, the sodium potassium pump has to take place in order to restore the polarized state of the heart cells.

      Sodium ascorbate cannot initiate increase hypertension

      Sodium alone is not responsible for creating the heart cell potential to increase heart rate contraction.

    4. bakit yung source mo galing sa vital-c.com???
      haha...

      eto, hinde ako nagkukunwaring doctor. you can check if what I am saying is true or not, this fact is readily verifiable in the internet.

      Its the fact that sodium attracts water, if you have that in your blood of course your blood increase in volume causing high blood pressure, its not about the cardiac muscle contraction as explained in a jargon way above in an attempt to make it look valid just because its using technical terms..

    5. TAMA! extra mile research ka muna DOCTOR...wag ka muna dakdak marami ha...

  5. Reading your blog almost caused me to stop taking Vital C , but so far I'm feeling good than before and to add , my allergic rhinitis was gone. What you have implied above is TAKING SODIUM ASCORBATE in HIGH DOSAGE. i.e about pregnant moms , you've pointed out about taking it in high dosage. Probably one of the reasons why a woman who gave birth to a healthy child can't stop from herself from commenting. I commend you for taking the extra-mile to research, but I was hoping that you should not be biased in giving your opinions. Vital C did not claim to take more than the allowable 2000 mg for pregnant woman.

  6. We can't always rely with personal opinions, testimonials, personal researches over the internet, even though it pays to educate ourselves and ask for 2nd or 3rd expert opinions. However, it is always best to ask the Experts, just like Dr, Oclarit, who actually recommends and prescribes vitamin c in the treatment of different illnesses. What kind of brand, be it an ascorbic acid form or the sodium ascorbate form, that is up to us.

    Inquire or message Dr. Jose Micabalo Oclarit directly in Facebook.

    Ang laki ng aking pasasalamat sa Vital C! Meron akong Breast Cancer (R) III-B at Bronchitis. 9 years na akong naghihirap sa ganitong sakit. Ang pinakamasakit, lumaki po ito, namaga at pumutok. Ang daming dugo at nana (pus) na lumabas. Ang sakit po talaga at hirap na hirap ako sa pag papagamot dahil sa kakulangan ng pera. Ang butas na sugat ng aking breast nung umpisa ay kasing sukat ng 25 sentimong barya (coin) hanggang sa ito ay lumaki. Nung pinasubok sa akin ang Vital C ni Ms. Mary Jane Anillo, agad ko itong ininom! Sinimulan ko ang pag inom ng Vital C ng 15 capsules 3x a day noong June, 2009 hanggang ngayon. Lalong lumabas ang dugo at dumi sa sugat. Hindi ako natakot at tinuloy-tuloy ko ang pag inom! Pagkalipas ng ilang buwan, lumiliit na ang sugat, at ito?y natutuyo. Ang pamamaga ay nawala, ang sugat ay tuluyan nang naghilom! Hinding-hindi ko po makakalimutan ang tulong na naibigay sa akin ng Vital C!

    Economic Frauds Scam - https://economicfrauds.net

    Around May 23, this year my office received a call from a representative (he refused to mention his name) from Economic Frauds Detection & Prevention Inc. telling us that someone had filed a damaging complaint against our company, although he would give no further details, and we have no knowledge of any such complaint. During the conversation, he suggested that we should make a payment of $650 and in return that they will not make the complaint public as it would damage our reputation. We told him that we would think about it, because it is a corporate matter, and we don't have the discretion to make payments for reasons like this without approval from our bosses. Up until this week, they have been calling us about it continuously. They even threatened to make our company famous with the information that they have by exaggerating the complaint and posting it publicly on their site and all over the internet. They even gave us their site name, which is https://economicfrauds.net, and asked us to check for ourselves what had happened to other companies that refused to settle with them in the past.

  20. sodium ascorbate is the best and most bio-available form of vitamin c. this review is flawed since according to research, there are no proven side effects of sodium ascorbate. Sodium in sodium ascorbate is not sodium chloride which affects blood pressure. these are all myths and no proven scientific study. haha i should say.

    I am not from vital-c, rather, i am promoting another brand. it does not matter what brand I am promoting but the benefit society will get :D
