Vitamin C

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 higher doses can occur. If side effects occur, reduce the dose.
