Details

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress.1-8 Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while inhibiting its oxidation.9,10 Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.4-6

More vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress.11-14 Physical stresses on the body such as ingestion of heavy metals,15-20 cigarette smoking,21-24 and extreme temperatures,25-30 also signal the need for increased intake of vitamin C.31

Vitamin C Powder contains four buffering minerals, in addition to ascorbic acid. When mixed with water, this product produces a reduced-acid solution that is non-irritating to the stomach and intestinal lining. The minerals also make it a more pleasant-tasting and healthful drink. The substances used in this product make it effervesce for a short while when it is mixed with water.
