Cellular Function: Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger. It is also involved in a variety of metabolic processes including cellular respiration and nutrient metabolism. Vitamin C aids in the absorption of iron and the formation of red blood cells, as well as the conversion of folic acid to active folinic acid. Vitamin C is also required for the synthesis of carnitine, neurotransmitters and steroids.*
Immune Defense: Vitamin C supports the body’s defense system by enhancing white blood cell function, interferon levels, antibody responses, and secretion of thymic hormones. Additionally, it maintains healthy histamine release and supports lymphocyte formation.*
Endothelial Health: Vitamin C is essential for the formation and maintenance of intercellular ground substance and collagen. Research suggests that it may also support endothelial function and healthy blood flow.*
1-4 capsules per day, in divided doses, with meals.
