Ginney Gunther is a highly respected and sought after pastor, life-coach, human potential advocate, and co-host of Dr. Carolyn Dean Live Podcast.
TONIGHT - we\'ll talk with Dr. Carolyn Dean about Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is an essential nutrient, widely recognized for its antioxidant properties. These properties arise from its potent redox potential due to its capacity to donate electrons to oxidized molecules. Even in small quantities vitamin C can protect critical molecules in the body such as proteins, lipids, carbohydrates, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from damage by reactive oxygen species, which are generated during normal metabolism, by active immune cells, and through exposure to toxins and pollutants (e.g., certain chemotherapy drugs and cigarette smoke). The vitamin also plays a critical role as a cofactor – a molecule that assists enzymes in chemical reactions. This dual nature of vitamin C means that it is instrumental in multiple physiological processes, including those involved in the biosynthesis of collagen, carnitine, and catecholamines. As such, vitamin C participates in immune function, wound healing, fatty acid metabolism, neurotransmitter production, and blood vessel formation, as well as other key processes and pathways.

Magnesium and minerals plug us in - literally! Not only do minerals provide the necessary building blocks for the structure and function of the body, they are also required for the electrical conductivity that occurs between all cells. The electrical or energetic message that minerals send is created from very small amounts of minerals, but it results in a huge impact. The nervous system uses electrical energy to transmit messages (nerve impulses) from one cell to another. The muscles are similarly activated to create all movement – large and small.
