Clinicians Family C provides three forms of Vitamin C, calcium ascorbate threonate, sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid, which together with a bioflavonoid complex work to support immune and circulatory health.
Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant vitamin that the body cannot produce. Its main function in the body is its role in producing collagen, the substance that makes up ligaments, tendons and connective tissue vital to the body structure.
Vitamin C supplementation has been shown to enhance the immune system; promote wound healing; support neurotransmitter and hormone production and promote the health of all cells in the body.
Vitamin C is one of the most important antioxidants. It works in an aqueous environment in the body both intra– and extracellularly. It is considered as the first line of antioxidant protection in the body and therefore much research has been undertaken into its potential role in preventing chronic diseases resulting from free radical and oxidative damage.
Vitamin C deficiency may occur as a result of poor dietary intake or the using of conventional medications that are known to be associated with depletion. Vitamin C deficiency can result in a diminished immune response, susceptibility to infection and slow wound healing.
When Vitamin C stores are low, the action of other antioxidant nutrients such as Vitamin E and Selenium also drop. It is thus essential to maintain healthy stores of this vitamin.
