Natural Factors Vitamin C Crystals Powder - 125g
Vitamin C is necessary for maintaining all collagen structures, 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 cannot store vitamin C, making regular supplementation 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.
Vitamin C comes from starch, derived from the stalks of a variety of plants. Pure ascorbic acid crystals are extracted from this material. There is no residue left over after it is made so there is virtually no chance of allergies to the vitamin C itself.
