  1. Happy birthday and may God bless you today!

I've also read a similar theory linked to the effect of vitamin C in combatting scurvy (thinning of the arteries) It suggested that cholesterol in evolutionary terms was the bodies way of strengthening the arteries when vitamin C was in shorter supply ie. during periods of extreme cold.

I know you say you take a multivitamin but even these can be poorly absorbed. I think my shortness of breath arises due to me getting slightly anemic sometimes. To alleviate this I make sure I have a higher than usual intake of Iron as well as sub lingual B vitamins, particularly b12 and folic acid (sublingual which passes directly into your body rather than having to be digested by your damaged intestines). Green leafy vegetables such as spinach, kale and cabbage are also great against anemia especially if they're raw (cooking can destroy a great deal of the vitamin content). You may not be anemic but I think the shortness of breath comes as a result of poor vit digestion so as your intestines recover so should your breathlessness. All the best Tom
