Buffered vitamin C with bioflavonoids and beta carotene, containing both water- and fat soluble forms of vitamin C (Vitamin C Ester).
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant in the aqueous phase of the body. In this process it is converted into the inactive and pro-oxidant form which no longer has antioxidant properties. In this product, vitamin C is therefore combined with bioflavonoids which serve to regenerate the active form. The water soluble form of vitamin C is further combined with the fat soluble form L-ascorbyl palmitate. In this manner, vitamin C activity in both the lipid and aqueous phases of the body is ensured. The buffered form prevents over acidification of the urine thus also minimizing the risk of kidney stones.
Because of its powerful antioxidant and anti-free radical action, vitamin C is beneficial in a wide variety of diseases including coronary heart disease, diabetes, cancer, asthma and allergies as well as against infections including colds and flu when used correctly. This has been verified in various clinical studies.
