Vitamin C supplements are one of the most important supplements you can provide your body with. Vitamin C is essential to the manufacturing of collagen, a connective tissue that is the most plentiful tissue in the body. Collagen acts as a defence mechanism against disease and infection, and helps in the repair of injuries. For athletes and people who have an intensive fitness program, this makes Vitamin C supplements a key ingredient in helping to heal from injuries. + Read more >
Vitamin C supplements also help support the blood vessel structures, providing protection against heart disease and helping to lower blood pressure and improve cholesterol levels. Studies have also shown that because Vitamin C supplements support the blood vessel structure it plays an important role in dental health, in particular reducing the incidence of symptoms of gingivitis and bleeding gums. Vitamin C has been shown to aid in the production of antibodies, helping to increase the production and function of white blood cells when the immune system is being challenged due to illness or injury. This makes Vitamin C supplements an essential part of any overall health strategy by boosting the immune system and helping ward off and reduce the symptoms of the common cold.

C+ Bioflavonoids contains pure vitamin C with the synergistic action of citrus bioflavonoids, rich in eriocitrin, hesperidin, neohesperidin, and other flavonols, flavanones, and flavones and their glycosides. Bioflavonoids synergistically support the functions of vitamin C, "recharging" oxidized ascorbate and apparently assisting in the maintenance of capillaries, as well as being potent phenolic antioxidants in their own right.

TLC 3.0 is formulated based on the research of Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath into the role of lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)] in cardiovascular health, and the evolutionary relationship between Lp(a) and vitamin C. Lysine and proline beneficially alter the binding properties of Lp(a). Many epidemiological studies have linked a higher intake, or blood levels, of vitamin C with lower risk of cardiovascular disease and heart attack. But the reasons remain unclear. Some studies have found that vitamin C supplementation improves many known CVD risk factors, lowering total cholesterol, boosting HDL ("good") cholesterol, reducing the oxidation of LDL ("bad") cholesterol, and lowering blood pressure. But other studies have failed to substantiate these findings, leaving the connection between vitamin C and heart health a bit of a mystery.

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient, but when it is in an isolated and/or synthetic form, it is quite poorly absorbed and can actually adversely affect our health! According to one human study, 1500 mg (total) of isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C per day can cause iron deficiency and anemia! Most of the isolated and/or synthetic vitamin C consumed is unused by the body. What's worse, it puts a negative strain on your liver and kidneys to excrete it, and it is quite acid forming in the body! However, Truly Natural Vitamin C™ has all of the naturally occurring elements synergistically present and bonded (including naturally occurring bioflavonoids) because it is 100% food (100% Acerola Cherry Powder). Truly Natural Vitamin C contains naturally occurring Vitamin C in a powdered form.

This kid-friendly vitamin C is gentle on teeth and is so tasty they think they're getting a treat. Naturally flavoured and sweetened, 100% Natural Fruit Chew C is an excellent source of vitamin C for the young and the young at heart. Vitamin C is a necessary building block 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 helps to regenerate vitamin E. As it is a water-soluble vitamin, the body can not 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, which is 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. This healthful product also includes bioflavonoids. Bioflavonoids are vitamin-like molecules that are found in the peel of citrus fruits and other fruits and vegetables. They enhance the activity of vitamin C and may improve the body's ability to hold and absorb vitamin C by 35%.From:
Vitamin C is a water-soluble compound that cannot be produced by the human body. It is a requirement in the daily diet for good overall health. Vitamin C is considered the top healthy aging and longevity vitamin by many researchers, is an important antioxidant vitamin involved in the growth and repair of all tissues of the body, wound healing, and the health of connective tissues, bones, cartilage, teeth and gums. Vitamin C is also involved in lipid and vitamin metabolism, biosynthesis of neurotransmitters, immune function, eye health and proper circulatory system health. Alarmingly, one out of every four North Americans does not even get the bare minimum RDA for vitamin C needed to perform basic cellular functions. In one study, 70% of ailing elderly people had white blood cells deficient in vitamin C. Most of the vitamin C supplements available are in the ascorbic acid form. Although this form can be readily absorbed by most people, it can cause gastrointestinal problems, such as abdominal pain or diarrhea for those with a sensitive stomach. This can make vitamin C less effective and bioavailable. Bioavailability refers to the degree in which a nutrient (or drug) becomes available to the target tissue after it has been administered. Mineral salts of ascorbic acid (mineral ascorbates) are buffered, and therefore, less acidic. Because of this, mineral ascorbates are often recommended to people who experience gastrointestinal problems with plain ascorbic acid. When mineral salts of ascorbic acid are taken, both the ascorbic acid and the mineral appear to be well absorbed. BerryRich is also included in this formula. It is an ORAC-rich, full-spectrum antioxidant blend from berries and other fruits including: grape, pomegranate, strawberry, cranberry, blueberry, raspberry, and bilberry. All of these foods are rich in vitamin C, flavonoids and other beneficial phytonutrients that have been shown to slow aging, protect cellular health and reduce risk for serious and chronic diseases.$9.99
