C Vitamins

 

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is quite possibly the most well researched nutrient available today. This is in part due to the research Linus Pauling conducted on the benefits of using vitamin C therapeutically. Vitamin C is a proven antioxidant that may:

• Support a healthy immune system

• Reduce the severity of seasonal symptoms

• Maintain capillary strength

• Work with nutrients to build tissue

• Promote collagen formation

• Protect against clotting and bruising

• Increase iron absorption

Because the body is unable to manufacture vitamin C, it is essential to obtain by the diet or through dietary supplements. Moderate deficiency:

• Increases susceptibility to infections

• Contributes to easy bruising

The body utilizes vitamin C more efficiently in combination with rose hips and bioflavonoids. We offer high potency complex formulas including prolonged release delivery systems. Unfortunately, standard high potency water soluble supplements release their nutrients all at once, decreasing the amount absorbed. When we eat nutrient rich foods, the vitamins are gradually released as the food is digested. Since water soluble vitamins, such as vitamins C and B complex, must be supplied throughout the day, each day, our prolonged release formulas attempt to mimic the way we receive these nutrients from food over two to six hours. Excessive vitamin C intake can result in gastrointestinal discomfort.

Kids Chewable C (Item #362)

Vitamin C is an essential vitamin the human body needs to function. It is a water-soluble vitamin that cannot be made by the body, and must be obtained from foods or other sources. Vitamin C is found in abundance in citrus fruits such as oranges, grapefruit, and lemons, and in green leafy vegetables, tomatoes, potatoes, strawberries, red or green peppers, and cantaloupe. Vitamin C is an antioxidant, a compound that helps block the action of unstable molecules known as free radicals, which can damage cells. Vitamin C is thought by some to enhance the immune system by stimulating the activities of natural killer cells (a type of white blood cell), as well as agents that clean-up ‘sick’ cells.
