Vitamin C

The benefits of Vitamin C and why you should take it.

Vitamin C is essential for many bodily functions; supportive to the immune system, collagen formation, skin health, bone formation and teeth formation, protection of cells from oxidative stress, normal function of nervous system, reduction of tiredness and fatigue and increased iron absorption. Good food sources include oranges, peppers, broccoli and bananas. Those who smoke, drink, undergo intensive exercise, or suffer from atherosclerosis or infections are in need of higher amounts of the vitamin. Deficiency of the vitamin can result in poor immunity, poor wound healing and bleeding gums, known as scurvy.

Vitamin C is a very fragile vitamin, meaning it is very sensitive to light, heat, and vitamin C is lost in cooking water.

Solgar Ester C Vitamin C 1000 mg is a high strength formula, delivering all the health benefits of this premium, patented form of vitamin C, in a convenient one-a day capsule. It offers a gentler, more easily digested form of vitamin C which is pH neutral and non-acidic. The metabolites of Ester-C have a positive effect on the levels of vitamin C retention in the body’s immune cells, giving you superior immune support. Solgar’s Ester-C is an exclusive formulation with additional natural plant bioflavonoids, that naturally accompany vitamin C in fruits and vegetables.

Vitamin C aids iron absorption and it is important to get both in the system to help both nutrients work and absorb optimally.
