In addition to Vitamin C's powerful antioxidant
and infection-fighting properties, this product contains added
bioflavonoids and is presented in a time-release form because Vitamin C
can not be stored in the body. These plant components are known to
improve circulation, memory and varicose veins, and to reduce high blood
pressure and risk of stroke.
Vitamin C is necessary to maintaining all collagen structures, thereby
promoting wound repair, strong bones and teeth, and healthy gums. As a
powerful antioxidant it protects the aqueous areas of the body
(including the blood, intracellular fluid and interstitial fluid) from
free radicals. Vitamin C protects LDL cholesterol from oxidation and
also helps to regenerate vitamin E.
As it is a water-soluble vitamin, the body does not store vitamin C, so
regular supplementation is vital.
The body's need for vitamin C increases during times of stress because
vitamin C participates in the production of vital chemicals such as
norepinephrine, needed for the 'fight or flight' response. Vitamin C
also acts as a detoxifier, helping to cleanse the body of toxins, such
as cigarette smoke, carbon monoxide, etc.
Natural Factors includes bioflavonoids in their vitamin C products.
Bioflavonoids (vitamin-like molecules that are found in the peel of
citrus fruits and other fruits and vegetables) enhance the activity of
vitamin C and may improve the body's ability to hold and absorb vitamin
C by 35%
