Exposure to alcohol, processed foods, pesticides, pollutants, or stress can create oxidation in the body, resulting in widespread damage. Vitamin C seeks out this oxidation to neutralize it and protect cells from further damage. It can also provide other benefits, such as bolstering immunity, strengthening hair/skin/nails, improving mineral absorption and enhanced physical performance.
After a Vitamin C molecule is spent, it can be recycled back into its beneficial form - however, the body cannot store or make more Vitamin C. Exposure to light and heat from cooking can destroy Vitamin C, further reducing the amount found in a healthy diet. While a severe deficiency is rare, the benefits of this vitamin are not possible without adequate daily consumption; up to 2000mg per day. Some common symptoms of deficiency include: easy bruising, swollen or bleeding gums, rough or dry skin and nails, weakened immunity or digestive disorders.
The Vitamin C in this supplement is derived from calcium ascorbate, providing a small amount of additional calcium for enhanced absorption. Two powerful flavonoids, Hesperidin and Rutin, have been added to enhance the effectiveness of antioxidant support - these are bioactive molecules derived from citrus that aid in the regeneration of used Vitamin C in your body. At 500mg per serving, this supplement provides flexibility for you to chose the daily amount of Vitamin C that is right for you. Each jar contains 60 vegetarian capsules.
Remember - It's only possible to absorb so much Vitamin C at once. If you'd like to take more than 1 capsule per day, just remember to space them out.
