  Triple C Syndrome
The Triple C Syndrome occurs when the C fiber, by reflex becomes super sensitive to an underlying injury of the "A delta" nerve fiber.
Since the C fiber is trying to limit the effect of this injury, it intensely fires, causing vasoconstriction.
Sympathetic blockade is fruitless as once the block wears off, the C fiber remains hyperactive in response to the underlying A delta injury.

 Dimethyl Sulfoxide (DMSO) Blocks Conduction in Peripheral Nerve C Fibers: a Possible Mechanism of Analgesia
C fiber responses were identified by their slower conduction velocity, smaller amplitude and higher stimulus threshold compared to A fibers.
A fiber responses at the beginning of the record are distorted because of the high gain (which saturates the signal averager) and slow timebase needed to demonstrate C responses.
C fiber compound action potential amplitude (most positive point minus most negative point) and latency (to most positive point) were measured.

 Seacoast Newspaper's Our Times: ON THE MENU: Fun fiber facts for children
More recent research into the health benefits of high fiber diets began in the 1970s when it was discovered that populations with diets rich in fiber and low in fat did not suffer many of the health problems that plague Western populations.
Studies continue, but it is safe to say that high fiber diets have been linked to decreased rates of colorectal and breast cancer, a decreased risk of diabetes and can help prevent cardiovascular disease by lowering blood cholesterol levels.
Soluble fiber absorbs water as it passes through the digestive system and is responsible for lowering blood cholesterol levels.

 C through fiber optics
c, the velocity of light in vacuum, is a constant of nature.
This happens continuously, and because the speed of the wave is the rate of advance of the condition of constant phase, a change in the phase should correspond to a change in the speed.
In a straight fiber, light is free to take the shortest possible path - a straight line, which would have the same length as the length of the fiber.

 Early Onset of Spontaneous Activity in Uninjured C-Fiber Nociceptors after Injury to Neighboring Nerve Fibers -- Wu et ...
High-frequency spontaneous activity in A fibers, consisting mainly of muscle afferents, was frequently observed in the L4 recordings from both normal and lesioned animals (Table 1).
Less than 10% of the C fibers in the L4 spinal nerve were spontaneously active in uninjured, control animals (Figure 2).
The proportion of spontaneously active C fibers recorded in the L4 spinal nerve is plotted as a function of time after the L5 spinal nerve lesion.

Half the fiber is the insoluble type (good for the intestines) and half is soluble pectin fiber (good for the heart).
Mangoes are high in fiber, high in beta carotene (similar to apricots and cantaloupe), high in vitamin C -- but much higher in calories than equal servings of similar fruits, such as cantaloupe and papaya.
Most of the vitamin C in pears is concentrated in the skin, as is some of the fiber, so peeled, canned pears are less nutritious than fresh.

The response of the nerve fibers adapted during the course of the stimulus.
In general, the response of the A fibers increased monotonically with increasing force, whereas the response of many of the C fibers reached a plateau level before the end of the ascending sequence.
Similar results were obtained from the population of A and C fibers that were tested with the stimulus-interaction paradigm.

 C Complex
Although “the bioavailability of vitamin C in humans and...our current understanding of that process and factors that influence it are incomplete” [9], it appears that slower disintegration times improve the bioavailability of vitamin C [10] (Food C Complex has slower disintegration times).
Some of the many functions that vitamin C is involved in include collagen formation, carnitine biosynthesis, neurotransmitter synthesis, enhancement of iron absorption, immunocompetence, antioxidant defense, possible anticarcenogenic effects, protection of folate and vitamin E from oxidation, and cholesterol catabolism [1].
Food C Complex bioflavonoids contain as many as sixteen truly organic bioflavonoids: flavanone glycosides, naringin, neorioctrin, neohesperidin, hesperiden, flavone glycosides, rhoifolin, luteolin, neodiosnin, flavon aglycones, tetra-o-methylisoscutellaren, sinensetin, isosinensetin, tangeritin, nobiletin, 5-0-desmethylnobiletin--other bioflavonoid-containing formulas typically are less complete.
