Our Vitamin C contains ninety 800 mg capsules per bottle and is highly absorbable. Each capsule contains Calcium Ascorbate, Bioflavinoids, Alfalfa, Parsley, Rutin, and Hesperidin. Only one capsule of NAN Vitamin C is needed with every two capsules of our Beta Glucan (Immune System Support).
Vitamin C is vital for tissue growth and repair, the formation of teeth and bones, wound healing, and resistance to infections. Vitamin C plays a part in almost all aspects of our health and well-being. This powerful vitamin also contributes to the production of stress hormones and the neurotransmitter serotonin which enhances your mood. Vitamin C may help prevent arteriosclerosis by combating abnormal blood clotting, high blood pressure and plaque buildup leading to hardening of the arteries. Because Vitamin C is an antioxidant which battles damage-causing free radicals, it may also help to prevent cancer. Recently, scientific evidence has indicated that the vitamin works along with vitamin E in this role. The synergism of the two vitamins produces a greater effect than either vitamin can separately.
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress. It promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation and is a vital co-factor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth. More Vitamin C is contained in the adrenal glands than any other organ in the body and is required at higher levels during times of stress. Physical stresses on the body such as ingestion of heavy metals, cigarette smoking, infections, extreme temperatures, and chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin also signal the need for increased intake of Vitamin C.
Another truth is that the human body cannot manufacture Vitamin C. We need to get it from food and supplements. Vitamin C is a "water soluble" vitamin which means that it "washes out" of the body every day. Yesterday''s excess Vitamin C is gone today! After 10 to 20 days your Vitamin C is totally gone in the absence of further ingestion. Vitamin C is a major anti-oxidant in the body and needs to be replaced daily.
The richest natural sources of Vitamin C are fruits and vegetables. Good sources are: oranges, honeydew melon, strawberries, cantaloupe, mangoes, kiwifruit, watermelon, papaya, grapefruit, broccoli, tomatoes, cauliflower, cabbage, and citrus juices. Raw and cooked leafy greens (turnip greens, kale, spinach), red and green peppers, potatoes, winter squash, raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, and pineapple.
Vitamin C is absorbed by the intestines. The presence of large quantities of sugar either in the intestines or in the blood can slow absorption. Once ingested, Vitamin C is readily absorbed by the intestines and continues through the watery components tissues that make up the human body and is said to uphold the body’s natural equilibrium.
Many people think they are doing very well when they take 500 milligrams, or even 1,000 milligrams of Vitamin C. Vitamin C is so cheap and so beneficial that just about everyone ought to be taking much larger doses. The actual amount of Vitamin C that will be used in the body depends on the health or sickness of the body. The body, in some cases, can absorb as much as 50,000 mg. The minimum daily requirement of Vitamin C was based on keeping a person from getting scurvy and not health.
NOW THAT you know you do need Vitamin C every day, how much do you need? Well, you can have a sudden demand placed on the body where several thousand milligrams of Vitamin C might be "used up" in just a few hours. Or, you may go through several very calm days, no stress, and not need more than a small amount of Vitamin C each of those days. Some people believe that when your urine is yellow you are probably excreting an excess of Vitamin C that was taken. This is surely one of the cheapest forms of health insurance ever invented. What you should worry about is when and if your urine is NOT yellow. That might mean that ALL the Vitamin C you are taking got used up and that, perhaps, you should even take MORE!
