  • Vitamin C modulates white blood cell (WBC) functions for healthy immune system. WBCs use ascorbic acid in the synthesis of cytotoxic enzymes which they use in fighting off bacteria, viruses, and toxins. Vitamin C deficiency has been linked to increased risk of developing colds and other common infections.

  • Vitamin C is a premier antioxidant. Antioxidants are beneficial compounds that protect the cells from free radical damage, which increases the risk for developing diseases related to old age. Degenerative (age-related) diseases like atherosclerosis, Alzheimer’s disease, cardiovascular diseases, macular degeneration, cataracts, and osteoarthritis are induced by free radicals.
  • Vitamin C is known to sustain cardiovascular health. Its antioxidant powers encourage maximum blood flow by preventing the build-up of cholesterol plaques in the blood vessel walls which may hinder circulation. Therefore, it allows efficient supply of blood and oxygen essential to the hearts healthy pumping action.
