Vitamin C, a water soluble supplement that should be taken throughout the day!
Vitamin C is a vital nutrient that our bodies need to function properly. Not only does it aid in the production of collagen, which is important for healthy skin and wound healing, but it is also a powerful antioxidant. Antioxidants neutralize free radicals, which are damaging molecules that are produced during normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors.* This product supplies calcium ascorbate, a buffered form of vitamin C that is bioavailable and non-acidic; it is enhanced with bioflavonoids, which work synergistically with vitamin C.*
Vitamin C and Collagen Production
One of the most important roles of vitamin C is in the production of collagen. Collagen is a protein that provides structure to our skin, hair, nails, bones, and blood vessels. It is responsible for wound healing and plays a role in preventing premature aging. Foods rich in vitamin C include citrus fruits, leafy green vegetables, tomatoes, and bell peppers.* Supplementing with vitamin C can help ensure that our bodies have enough of this important nutrient to produce collagen.*
Vitamin C and Free Radicals
Another important role of vitamin C is as an antioxidant. Antioxidants are substances that neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells and lead to inflammation.* Vitamin C helps to protect our cells by scavenging free radicals and neutralizing them before they can cause problems.* This product contains calcium ascorbate, a buffered form of vitamin C that is bioavailable and non-acidic; it is enhanced with bioflavonoids, which work synergistically with vitamin C.* Bioflavonoids are plant-based compounds that have been shown to have antioxidant activity. They are often found alongside vitamin C in fruits and vegetables.* Adding this supplement to your diet can help you maintain optimal health.*
