Numerous experimental, clinical and population studies show that Vitamin C intake benefits the body by boosting immune function, guarding against damage from pollution and cigarette smoke, enhancing wound repair and reducing the risk of cataracts.
High doses of vitamin C can help to decrease the release of inflammatory mediators involved in allergic reactions. Vitamin C has long been known as an essential nutrient. Essential because the human body does not manufacture it's own Vitamin C, and because of its vital nutritional role.
Vitamin C has enjoyed the reputation of the key vitamin in the prevention of colds and associated winter infections. Far less universally recognised is this versatile vitamin's effectiveness in dealing with a wide range of conditions from allergies to skin ulcers.
Vitamin C's primary role involves the manufacture and maintenance of connective tissue, in bringing about the normal metabolism of cholesterol, and in the production of cortisol by the adrenal glands. It is biochemically active in the production of collagen for both skin and bones, and in synthesising the hormone noradrenalin that governs pulse rate and blood pressure.
- Boosts immune system.
- Helps to alleviate the symptoms of colds and flu.
- May relieve the symptoms of hay fever.
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C is a potent scavenger of free radicals, protecting against tissue damage caused by chemical pollutants, cigarette smoke and environmental toxins. The addition of lemon bioflavonoids, rosehips and acerola not only aids in the absorption of Vitamin C by the body, but also contributes to the delicious taste, increasing compliance particularly in children and teenagers.
