Buffered Vitamin C benefits are many!

Did you know that vitamin C is not only good for boosting your immune system, but it is also a powerful antioxidant? Vitamin C can help to neutralize free radicals in the body, which are generated 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.

What are Free Radicals?

Free radicals are unstable molecules that the body produces as a result of normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors. These molecules can damage cellular structures, including DNA, proteins, and lipids. Over time, this damage can lead to a number of chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.

The body has a natural defense against free radicals, called antioxidants. Antioxidants work by scavenging free radicals and converting them into harmless molecules. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that can neutralize free radicals and help to protect the body from disease.

Why take Vitamin C supplements?

The body cannot produce its own vitamin C, some people may not get enough from their diet. Supplements can help to ensure that you are getting enough vitamin C to maintain health. In addition, because vitamin C is water soluble, the body does not store it; any excess vitamin C is excreted in the urine. This means that it is important to get enough vitamin C every day and ideally: "taken through out the day" to maintain adequate levels in the body.

In Summary:

Vitamin C is essential for good health; it boosts the immune system and works as a powerful antioxidant to neutralize free radicals in the body. If you don't think you're getting enough vitamin C from your diet, consider taking supplements to ensure you're getting enough of this important nutrient.

Review of C-1000 COMP 180 TABS - NOW Product N0702
Reviewed by Adam
Thursday, February 10, 2011

Rating: 3/5

C-1000 COMP 180 TABS are great if you have a sensitive stomach. The stomach is an important part of your digestive system and these tablets can help keep everything in order. I find it difficult to swallow tablets and usually have to prepare my mind before swallowing. With these tablets though there were not issues. For those of you who have problems remember to keep your mind clear and swallow hard before taking water. After taking the tablets the acid in my stomach felt like is resided back down. I would recommend these tablets for people who enjoy not having acid in their stomach.
