    Vitamin C provides many functions in the body. Some of the most important are its antioxidant properties, especially when combined with other antioxidants.

    Vitamin C is also essential for generation of collagen. Collagen, present in skin, blood vessels, muscle, joints, brain, and any structural tissue, is what holds the body together.

    Vitamin C: Powerful Antioxidant

    Antioxidants are substances that block damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are a byproduct of the process of generating energy inside cells. Constant generation of free radicals destroys cells and breaks down tissues. Protection from free radical damage with a constant supply of antioxidants is essential for optimal health.

    Vitamin C is one of the most versatile substances in nature. Not only is it a potent antioxidant, but it also recharges other important antioxidants such as glutathione. Vitamin C supports growth and maintains healthy tissues all over the body.

    Benefits of Vitamin C:

    •  The most versatile antioxidant in the body
    •  Recharges other important antioxidants
    •  Repair and maintain cartilage, bones, and teeth
    •  Supports a healthy immune system
    Side effects: Occasional gastric upset and loose stools at larger servings can occur. If side effects occur, reduce the serving.
