Super C is a unique vitamin C formula that provides vitamin C and related nutrients from twenty-three different sources for maximum absorption.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. Vitamin C does this by helping to form collagen—the main structural protein found in animal connective tissue. Vitamin C is not manufactured or stored by the body and must be supplemented.
The Importance of Vitamin C
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that protects cells (including those in the brain and nerves) and their DNA from damage and mutation. It elevates the body’s master protective antioxidant of the body called glutathione. Vitamin C is needed to create the enzyme that transports the amino acid tyrosine for conversion into the neurotransmitter dopamine. That is why it is also essential for good mood, focus and cognitive function.
Vitamin C is important for cardiovascular health. It forms part of the “cement” that keeps the walls of blood vessels smooth and healthy, preventing cracks and plaque deposits. Among its many other benefits, vitamin C is a key nutrient for good vision and eye health. Healthy eyes have among the highest concentrations of vitamin C of any organ in the body.
The human body cannot make its own vitamin C (unlike most animals). This is why we need to get it from what we eat. But most foods do not have enough (even an orange has only about 50 mg).
VITAMIN C BENEFITS:
• Is essential for the growth, maintenance and repair of all tissues.
• Keeps blood vessels smooth and prevents deposits of plaque.
• Vital for your healthy and strong immune system (high concentrations exist in immune cells and it is consumed quickly during infections).
