Debunking The Carnivore Fad Diet Myths #2: Low Carb/Ketogenic Dieters Require Less Vitamin C? Updated on May 20, 2019 By William Clement 3 Comments By William Clement 3 Comments The Natural Health Blogger May 20, 2019 This is where we see that much of the carnivore diet is just complete nonsense, especially when it comes to treating the likes of autoimmune diseases. Low vitamin C diets is one of the worst things you can do for autoimmune disorders. Autoimmune disorders are a symptom of adrenal dysfunction. The adrenal glands produce, among other things, steroids that modulate the immune response and reduce inflammation in the body. The adrenal glands also hold some of the largest stores of ascorbic acid in the human body, so for individuals with burnout/chronic fatigue, chronic stress and autoimmune related disorders, following a low vitamin C "diet" is a complete recipe for disaster. Not surprised most of these carnivores end up needing to resort to synthetic vitamin C supplements to compensate for the lack of dietary vitamin C, which is just completely ridiculous and unhealthy advice, when you could be obtaining rich quantities of vitamin C and many other beneficial phyto-chemicals easily from healthy plant-based foods such as fruits, vegetables and so on.

Reply The Natural Health Blogger May 20, 2019 The super duper carnivore diet that provides less vitamin C than the SAD diet lol The carnivore fad diet is literally just an even unhealthier rebrand of the Atkins diet but without the healthy low carb plant-based foods. A complete recipe for early death. Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
