The Future of Vitamin C is here...
Vitamin C is one of the most proven, well-established and powerful immune boosting, anti-oxidant, anti-aging, anti-viral, anti-pathogenic and anti-toxin nutrient known to man. These benefits have been clearly demonstrated over time and yet human beings are amongst only a handful of animal species that cannot produce their own supply of vitamin C so absolutely must source it from food or via supplementation.
We simply can’t function without vitamin C, not just because of its antioxidant properties but also because of the myriad of mechanisms throughout the body it has to support. It helps to assemble neurotransmitters, lower blood cholesterol, manufacture collagen, increase iron absorption in the gut, metabolise protein and protect tissues and cells from the damaging effects of free radicals. Virtually all cells in the body depend upon it.
We use vitamin C constantly and yet many people’s intake falls far short of what they actually need. Our daily requirement for vitamin C is higher than any other water-soluble vitamin, particularly during times of stress and illness when levels can drop.
Most people take vitamin C to support their immune systems and rightly so, as researchers have finally conceded that it really does help support our immune system. The remarkable benefits of vitamin C don’t just stop there though. Research into vitamin C is extensive and the positive benefits identified are numerous.
