Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an important vitamin for general health. Because it is water soluble, the body cannot store the vitamin; therefore, you must be certain to get enough each day, either through your diet or supplements like Buffered Vitamin C Crystals. Vitamin C is a critical component of both basic body-building functions and disease prevention. It is needed for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body.
Vitamin C is essential for the healing of wounds and the repair and maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth. During any kind of healing process, whether from infection, injury, disease, or surgery, the body uses large amounts of vitamin C. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that can help block damage from free radicals.
Research into the therapeutic uses of vitamin C is ongoing. Studies show promise for the use of vitamin C in protecting against a number of conditions. These conditions include heart disease, high cholesterol, high blood pressure, common cold, osteoarthritis, obesity and weight loss, cataract, age-related macular degeneration, diabetes, Alzheimer’s disease, and other types of dementia. Evidence from human studies indicates that though vitamin C will not cure these conditions, it may help prevent their initial onset or slow their progression.
Vitamin C is critical to the production of collagen, a protein that binds cells together, and is the building block of connective tissues throughout the body. It is also an immune system booster that increases white blood cell production.
Buffered Vitamin C Crystals, our most-concentrated form of vitamin C, comes from calcium ascorbate, which is a nonacidic form of powdered vitamin C. It is much gentler on the stomach and teeth than nonbuffered vitamin C. Each quarter teaspoon of our Buffered Vitamin C Crystals provides the body with over 1,000 mg of vitamin C as well as 100 mg of calcium.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, adults take 1/4 teaspoon in eight (8) ounces of water or juice daily, or as directed by a health care professional. Store in a cool, dry place and away from direct light.
