  • Pure Buffered Vitamin C Powder
  • A Dietary Supplement
  • Vegetarian/Vegan

 

Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system. Vitamin C is necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint health.

Vitamin C is also needed for amino acid metabolism and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. It is also a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals generated during normal metabolism. This product supplies Magnesium Ascorbate, a buffered form of Vitamin C that is gentler on the stomach.

Vitamin C is consumed in a supplemental form by millions of people across the world for its antioxidant properties which are well-documented in medical research.  C-1000 provides a potent dosage of this key vitamin and is blended with Bioflavonoids, natural synergists to Vitamin C.  Benefits of Vitamin C:

  • Vitamin C, is a potent antioxidant with increasingly diverse uses in health promotion and disease prevention.

  • Every step in the progression of atherosclerosis can benefit from the antioxidant power of vitamin C, from preventing endothelial dysfunction and altering lipid profiles and coagulation factors to preventing blood vessel changes that can lead to strokes and other vascular catastrophes.

  • Vitamin C supplements reduce cellular DNA damage that is the vital first step in cancer initiation and also reduce the inflammatory changes that allow a malignant cell to grow into a dangerous tumor.

  • Vitamin C supplements enhance the health-promoting effects of exercise and reduce exercise-induced oxidative damage.

  • Vitamin C supplements also dramatically combat the oxidative damage caused by smoking and exposure to tobacco smoke.
