Why it Works:
Vitamin C is an essential mineral that the body cannot produce, and is required at higher-than-normal levels during times of stress [1-4]. Vitamin C is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C can scavenge free radicals in the body and helps protect tissues from oxidative stress as well as support the immune system [5-12]. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while inhibiting its oxidation in the body [13,14]. Furthermore, Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth [8-10].
It can also support the body when confronted with physical stress, and stressors such as bas ingestion of heavy metals [15-20] cigarette smoking [21-24] and extreme temperatures [25-30] also signal the need for increased vitamin C intake .
The Science Behind the Product:
The human body does not produce vitamin C which must be received from foods or supplements . Vitamin C levels may drop during stress situations , why higher vitamin C intake can be necessary during times of stress [1-4]. A lack of vitamin C has been linked to the duration of immune challenges along with immune system problems . A lack of vitamin C can broadly affect various key aspects of maintaining a proper immune function .
Vitamin C is also required for the normal formation of bone proteins. And preliminary studies suggest a potential of vitamin C in preventing bone loss .
