I can't take Vit. C right now as it releases the iron into my blood (going through the Hemochromotosis right now), and right now  I'm dangerously high in iron. I'm going to the blood bank once a week and giving blood to drop the iron levels.

BUT I need suggestions for Vit C in the diet.  We O's don't eat oranges, etc.  Suggestions???

thanks!

Thanks so much for the NOW Brand name.  I use their digestive enzymes.  I will have to ask for Tru-C Biocomplex at my health food store next visit.

Bless you,

I stir a TBL of cut and sifted rosehips into a cup of water and let it sit overnight. In the morning I strain and drink this nectar. Rosehips are a great source of natural vitamin C.

Excellent sources of vitamin C include: parsley, broccoli, bell pepper, (strawberries), lemon juice, papaya,kale, mustard greens, and (Brussels sprouts).
I use the rosehip powder in smothies as well.

Great!  I've been eating the papaya and just this morning I started with a glass of water with juice of 1 lemon and a bit of stevia.  it was like lemon juice.  That would have to be my major source as the other things I don't eat in great quantities except for the papaya.  I do eat Kale and broccoli and bell pepper but not every day like some here on the board.  I'm trying to incorporate more kale into almost everything I cook.  In fact I think I'll start mixing in a bit with my eggs.

I have to get my vit. c from foods and not from supplements according to http://www.ironoverload.org.

In case you want to look into hemochromotosis, that is the site to review!  Every link is full of great info.

Many people are mis-diagnosed with fibromyalgia, chronic fatigue, adrenal gland problems, etc., and it is actually iron overload.  It's dangerous and next time you have your blood checked you should have it checked for high iron levels.

North American Herb and Spice also makes a food-based vitamin C called Purely-C.

Hemochromatosis is closely linked to celiac disease, genetically, they often go together. †It is the theory that hemochromatosis was an adaptation to celiac disease...if you can't absorb iron well, you might be well served to hold onto any of it you can get. †Now that iron is available in supplements, unlike when the adaptation arose, that can be a big problem.  The hemochromatosis gene makes iron levels go too high, but celiac disease can make it very hard to absorb iron and cause anemia.

I think my dad has both, but haven't talked him into getting tested. †His iron was up dangerously high once while taking iron containing supplements, and he got it down again, and hasn't thought much of it since. †I think I have the gene, my iron levels almost crept into the danger zone before donating blood and having two children, now they're stubbornly a bit low. †

Yes  you can be iron overloaded and be anemic.  If you read through the website, it explains all of this in the links on the homepage and goes into levels, etc.  It was very helpful for me to read it and figure out where I stood.

Regardless of anemic or not, if one has hemochromotosis, one need their ferritin to be below 10.  So finding a doctor to help with the blood testing - who is really really aware of the dangers of this disease who can direct you based on the findings is what anyone who has suspicion of iron issues should do.  It could be a matter of life and death.
