Complete Vitamin C Bioflavonoid Complex
contains Calcium Ascorbate, Sodium Ascorbate, Ascorbic Acid, Rutin, Rosehip, Hesperidin, Bioflavanoids, Quercetin, Pine Bark and Grape Seed so is a source of many anti-oxidants as well as three forms of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is one of the water soluble vitamins. It is an essential nutrient and as such must be obtained from the diet. Some ascorbic acid is stored in the body, concentrated in organs with higher metabolic activity such as the adrenal glands, pituitary gland, brain, eyes, ovaries and testes. A dietary intake of vitamin C is needed to maintain these body stores as well as prevent deficiency and disruption to normal body functions as only primates and guinea pigs do not synthesize Vitamin C in their body.
Vitamin C has many functions in the body…
FORMATION and MAINTENANCE of COLLAGEN
Collagen is the basis of connective tissue which is found in skin, ligaments, cartilage, vertebral discs, bone and teeth. It gives shape and support to the body and vitamin C is essential for its production. Collagen also acts as a strengthening "glue" between cells of artery walls, enabling them to withstand the pressure of blood being pumped around the body. In this way, ascorbic acid contributes to the strength of capillary walls, and promotes healing of wounds, fractures and bruises.
ADRENAL GLANDS and STRESS
During periods of stress the vitamin C content of the adrenal glands has been shown to be depleted. Vitamin C appears to stimulate the adrenal glands and the release of the adrenal hormones. These hormones are released during stress conditions.
ANTIOXIDANT
Free radicals are unstable compounds produced by our bodies, capable of damaging almost any biological tissue. Free radical damage is thought to be associated with the development of many conditions including cancer, old age (skin changes) and arthritis. Antioxidants such as vitamin C, work by scavenging these free radicals and therefore protecting tissues from damage.
IMMUNE SYSTEM FUNCTION
Vitamin C appears to stimulate the immune system. Through this function and its antioxidant function, vitamin C may help prevent and treat infections and other diseases. Ascorbic acid may activate neutrophils, white blood cells that work on frontline defense, and also increase the production of lymphocytes, the white cells important in antibody production and in coordinating cellular immune functions.
OTHER FUNCTIONS
Vitamin C works as a coenzyme for many reactions in the body and is used in the metabolism of several amino acids. Vitamin C has also been associated with thyroid hormone production and cholesterol metabolism. It increases cholesterol elimination, thereby helping to lower blood cholesterol levels. Vitamin C also enhances the absorption of iron from the small intestines..Requirements for vitamin C are increased by stress, and environmental conditions; in the elderly, and diabetic dogs/cats.
