January 2020 – Combining your daily Vitamin C supplement with Watt-Ahh will improve the bioavailability into cells … both faster and at a higher absorption volume into the blood stream. Results from the University of Florida (UF) research project, dated 5/3/11, showed substantially elevated occurrences when Watt-Ahh was compared with campus drinking water by using the TEER (radioisotopes) method on human intestinal (CaCo-2) cells. A lift of 2% Vitamin C uptake is significant but over 75% greater with Watt-Ahh is truly remarkable. The transport into the blood stream using Watt-Ahh averaged about 33% higher when compared to that of campus tap water … what we like to call Pow-Ahh Immunity!
The same UF research project was extended to compare UF campus water with a sample of UF campus water that was infused with DiTetra or SG Gas … the same Gas infused into Watt-Ahh. The gas-infused sample had a Vitamin C uptake of an average of 40% and transport average of 160% when compared to that of campus water (no gas infusion). The AHA! discovery was the gas-infused UF water had converted into a liquid crystalline state with less electrical resistance in transporting the Vitamin C into cells.
Why is Vitamin C Important in Supporting Immunity?
Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient for humans, a potent antioxidant and a cofactor in biosynthethic and gene regulatory enzymes. Similar to Watt-Ahh, Vitamin C has the ability to donate electrons to the human body. The research paper referenced below* states … “Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Vitamin C supports epithelial barrier function against pathogens …” Vitamin C also has a role in the differentiation and proliferation of B- and T-cells which is a primary immune defense for our bodies
According to this same report*, supplementation with Vitamin C appears to prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections. The report states … “Prophylactic prevention of infection requires dietary vitamin C intakes that provide at least adequate, if not saturating plasma levels (i.e., 100-200 mg/day), which optimize cell and tissue levels. In contrast, treatment of established infections requires significantly higher (gram) doses of the vitamin to compensate for the increased inflammatory response and metabolic demand.” The daily dosage of Vitamin C may be reduced when drinking Watt-Ahh (or the stated benefits of Vitamin C provided in this report may be optimized with Watt-Ahh).

Sources of Vitamin C
There are many food sources for Vitamin C including citrus, broccoli and rose hip tea. Healthline.com provides 20 foods known to be relatively high in Vitamin C.
A Vitamin C powder supplement is a convenient way to stir into your morning Watt-Ahh. If you want to go more exotic, try 100% organic Camu Camu berry powder harvested from the Amazon riverbanks of Peru (HerbaZest is one of the vendors).
