My Comments: A while ago, I was searching for a pure Vitamin C powder for a protocol I was doing for improving the health of my teeth. I checked on Amazon and ordered the product and was very satisfied with it, especially that it was certified non-GMO. I have already ordered twice and left my comments about it on amazon and then received a thank you email from Andrew. I then asked him to send me another package and I would do a review of it for my youtube channel (link is below) and also have Andrew answer some questions to know more about the person and the product. Thanks, Andrew!
For the twenty-sixth interview, I have the pleasure of introducing you to Andrew Vajda, owner of GMOFree Vitamins, in business selling on Amazon since December 2013.
Question #1: Tell me briefly about yourself and why you decided to get involved in the “health” industry?
After learning how to treat my own asthma and allergies in 2005, I travelled to meet and interview Orthomolecular medicine practitioners in the US, Canada and England. I filmed interviews with a dozen doctors and a few of their patients. I haven’t yet been able to raise the funds for the post production of a documentary about these interviews but along the way I realized that 90% of the vitamin C on the market is made in China, which of course leads to questions about content and purity. Out of the 5 main vitamin C producers in the US, all use GMO corn. That left only one company in the UK making non GMO vitamin C outside of China. Unfortunately, products are labeled made in the US just because they were packaged here (with mostly foreign ingredients).
I decided to open my company because that was the only way to get the vitamin C from the UK for myself and my family and friends. I imagined if we were interested others would be too, so I took a chance and made this product available on Amazon a year and a half ago.
Question #2: If you were stranded on a desert island and were allowed to take only 5 items with you (they can be food, books or specific products that are all health-related), what would they be and why?
Well since any food or health related product would inevitably run out. The only hope would be to bring a small fruit tree and seeds to start a garden and survive long term, plus enough food to survive until the gardens produced. then a solar water desalination kit. There are very modest ones that counts basically of a large black pot that uses the sun for a whole day to produce enough water for one person to survive. Finally a spearfishing gun or fishing pole to be able to have a back up source of food.
Question #3: What one message do you want to share with the people of this world that is crucial for their ultimate well-being and longevity?
The title of my documentary will be “Primal Flaw”, the idea the title highlights is that the reason man suffers so much from disease is that we lost the ability to make our own vitamin C whereas most mammals turn sugar into vitamin C as needed, when they are sick or stressed or injured, that production goes up until the stress passes. Doctors that mimicked the animal model where able to heal people from most of our common afflictions, heart disease, premature aging, cholesterol, viral and bacteriological attacks, the list goes on and on. To best learn how to use vitamin C correctly, google “Dr Robert Cathcart, Titrating to bowel tolerance”
Questions #4: If someone could afford to purchase only one product at this moment to start their journey towards better health (food or health-related), what would you recommend and why?
I’m pretty sure my answer to #3 covers this one too! 🙂 Of course if you can’t get your hands on C, a good dose of a fat soluble antioxidant such as d3 or E or Omega 3 will do a pretty good job in the meantime. I actually take these as well to protect me through the night when you’re not taking C. What most people don’t realize is that vitamin C has a very short half life, 30 minutes, so in 2 hours you have very little left. A dose in the morning just doesn’t protect you throughout most of the day. The best thing is to make a bottle of water with a dose that you’ll drink throughout the day and stop before evening. The dose that makes you feel well but doesn’t cause intestinal gurgling nor diarrhea. That’s explained in detail in Dr Cathcart’s protocol mentioned above.
Question #5: Tell me more about your business/company and/or products you offer to the public to help them achieve optimal health and well-being?
For the moment we only sell our non GMO vitamin C powder made in the UK. We just finally started selling enough volume to upgrade our packaging and will now concentrate on trying to make our product available through more channels. We will be reaching out to the main vitamin sites online as well as private networks used by naturopaths and MDs.
Question #6: What are your hopes/aspirations/dreams for the future health of the people and the planet?
That we step away from nuclear power and oil immediately. Our ecosystem can’t continue to survive all the damage we are causing.
Question #7: Who is your greatest hero and why?
Linus Pauling, one of the greatest minds that the world has ever known. A founding father in many fields including chemistry, biology, quantum physics, and many more. He spent the last 30 years of his life as a champion for vitamin C and was the only person ever to receive two unshared nobel prizes. One in chemistry for defining the nature of the chemical bond and one for peace for convincing a thousand scientists worldwide to petition an end to atmospheric testing of nuclear bombs.
Question #8: Is there anything else you would like to share with the public?
Whatever ailment you may face, first search online for orthomolecular medicine and your ailment. The website http://www.doctoryourself.com is a great first place to look. The author Andrew Saul is the chief editor of the Orthomolecular journal of medicine and his site is free of advertising.
