Vitamin C is an essential vitamin with many health benefits. For example, it supports our immune system, supports healthy healing, supports connective tissues, is a potent antioxidant, and supports the cardiovascular system.‡
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin which found in many fruits and vegetables, including oranges, strawberries, kiwi fruit, bell peppers, broccoli, kale, and spinach.
C-1000 Plus provides 1,000mg of vitamin C, plus citrus bioflavonoids, per serving.‡
High potency vitamin C with bioflavonoids. Antioxidant vitamin C is required for at least 300 metabolic functions including tissue growth and repair, adrenal function and gum health.‡
Bioflavonoids support vitamin C absorption. Taken together, both nutrients are more effective than either when taken alone. Since neither of these important nutrients can be produced by the human body, they must be supplied through the diet or in supplement form.‡
Warning: If you are pregnant or lactating woman, have any health conditions, or are taking any medication, make sure to consult your healthcare provider prior to use.
