A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin necessary to form collagen in bones, cartilage, muscle and blood vessels. It also aids in the absorption of iron. For patients who want to supplement their diet with additional vitamin C, our buffered formulas combines potassium/ magnesium ascorbate with lemon bioflavonoids including hesperidin and rutin. Buffered vitamin C has a pH of 4.4.
- Nourishes tissue growth and repair
- Supports adrenal and immune function*
- Powerful antioxidant
Description: Designed for individuals sensitive to acidic foods and beverages, Buffered Vitamin C 1000 mg is a combination of two mineral ascorbates (potassium and magnesium) that supply the essential antioxidant vitamin C without increasing stomach acidity. Lemon bioflavonoids are added for increased bioavailability.
Uses: The most important water-soluble antioxidant in the body, Vitamin C supports general health and immune system function. It protects indispensible molecules, such as proteins, lipids, RNA and DNA, from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species generated by normal metabolism and exposure to toxins and pollutants.
Vitamin C is an important enzyme cofactor for the biosynthesis of collagen and other connective tissues, contributing to joint and blood vessel health. It is essential for the biosynthesis of carnitine, needed to derive energy from fat, and the catecholamine neurotransmitters, epinephrine, norepinephrine, and dopamine.
Vitamin C also aids in the intestinal absorption of iron.
Flavonoids work synergistically with vitamin C, and also have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of their own.
