Natural Factors C 500 mg + Rosehips, Bioflavonoids, Rutin
Vitamin C has powerful antioxidant and infection-fighting properties. In this formula, also included are citrus bioflavonoids, rutin and rosehips which are known to improve circulation, memory and varicose veins, and to reduce high blood pressure and the risk of stroke.
Vitamin C is necessary in maintaining all collagen structures, which promotes wound repair, strong bones and teeth, and healthy gums. As a potent antioxidant, it protects the aqueous areas of the body (including the blood, intracellular fluid and interstitial fluid) from free radicals. Vitamin C protects LDL cholesterol from oxidation and also helps to regenerate vitamin E.
As it is a water-soluble vitamin, the body does not store vitamin C, so regular supplementation is vital. The body requires more vitamin C during times of stress because vitamin C participates in the production of vital chemicals such as norepinephrine, responsible for the "fight or flight" response.
Vitamin C also acts as a detoxifier, helping to cleanse the body of toxins, such as cigarette smoke, carbon monoxide, etc. Bioflavonoids (vitamin-like molecules that are found in the peel of citrus fruits and other fruits and vegetables) enhance the activity of vitamin C and may improve the body`s ability to hold and absorb vitamin C by 35%.
