This formula is 100% natural vitamin C which is not typically what you find in other brands. The natural C and the bioflavonoids are derived from cherries, lemons, oranges, and citrus fruits. (Other brands use corn and make it in a lab!) There are 3 main ingredients in this formula: Vitamin C, Citrus Bioflavonoids and Lavitol® DHQ.
The body does not create vitamin C on its own, therefore including C as a supplement, or through diet is important every day. Easy bruising and dental problems are signs of low vitamin C.
The citrus bioflavonoids in this formula exhibit beneficial effects on capillary permeability and support healthy circulation/blood flow.* They work synergistically with vitamin C in this formula and they’re 100% natural.*
Vitamin C 🍊is a potent antioxidant that offsets free-radical damage* and helps make for beautiful skin due to enhanced collagen synthesis.* It is helpful for tooth decay, gum disease and bone health.*
This is a powerful antioxidant during times of stress.* Vitamin C plays an important rold for cardiovascular function. Specifically, it keeps arteries and blood vessels more pliable and elastic. Furthermore, it has natural abilities to inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, similarly to statins, but much milder. This means it can support healthy cholesterol and LDL.*
In two capsules, there is 250mg natural vitamin C, 250mg natural citrus bioflavonoids and Lavitol® brand of natural dihydroquercetin (DHQ) 20mg. This last ingredient is a potent, highly bioavailable form of quercetin. Due to synergy of these 3 ingredients, you don't need as high of a dose as synthetic ascorbic acid.
Take 1 or 2 capsules daily.
