Douglas Labs  Effer C Buffered  240 Grams


DESCRIPTION Effer-C®, provided by Douglas Laboratories®, contains corn-free vitamin C, specially buffered with calcium, magnesium, and potassium.

FUNCTIONS Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) has numerous biological functions. Foremost, it is essential for the synthesis of collagen and glycosaminoglycans which are the building materials of all connective tissues, such as skin, blood vessels, tendons, joint cartilage and bone. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the crosslinking of collagen fibers, lysyl hydroxylases and prolyl hydroxylases. As such, vitamin C is essential for normal wound healing and capillary health.  

Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chainbreaking antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen. Laboratory studies show that vitamin C completely protects lipids in plasma and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) against atherogenic peroxidative damage. In addition, vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid, and regenerates vitamin E.

INDICATIONS Effer-C may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to increase their daily intake of this important antioxidant vitamin, yet cannot tolerate the acidity of regular vitamin C preparations.

SUGGESTED USE Mix ½ to 1 teaspoon daily in 8 ounces of water, or as directed by physician.
