©Karl and Katherine Poehlmann 2007


Anti-oxidant plus Anti-toxins, Anti-bacterial, Anti-viral, Anti-fungal, Anti-histamine, Anti-enzyme

·       Ascorbic acid quells inflammation, stops tissue destruction


Stimulates function of white blood cells (immune system’s B- and T-cells)

·       suppresses some intra-cellular microbial parasites

·       goes inside the infected cell and disables the microbe

·       many white blood cells are infected


Potent First Aid for allergic reactions

·       snake/insect bites, poisons, toxic shock

·       severe allergy and asthma

·       moderates antibiotic adverse/allergic reactions  


Rapid detox of carbon monoxide poisoning of red blood cells


Prevents health risks for children (may also need high dosage ascorbate IV/shots):

·       Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), Shaken Baby Syndrome (SBS),

·       adverse vaccine reactions, colds and flu


Disables enzymes that dissolve tissues, e.g., flesh-eating bacteria, herpes cold sores, viral rashes


Disables microbe’s “spreading factor” hyaluronidase enzyme and moderates acute illness symptoms


Greatly accelerates healing (with high dosages):

·       cuts and wounds, surgery, frostbite, burns (including sunburn), lesions, ulcers, cold sores

·       heals periodontal lesions and gum disease

·       clears/controls bronchial/sinus/adenoidal/tonsil/ear infections


Protects against bacterial and viral diseases and epidemics:

·       colds, flu, West Nile virus, SARS, bird flu, pneumonia, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, Multiple Sclerosis, ALS (Lou Gherig’s disease), Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, mumps, diphtheria, chicken pox, measles, some cancers, and neurotropic degenerative viruses


Suppresses some intra-cellular microbial parasites: Mycoplasma, Sarcoidosis


Chelates (removes) toxic heavy metals from blood and tissues; reverses arterial sclerosis and clears some plaques in the circulation system
