File This Under Vitamin C, For Reference From RLEI

C-c-c-c-c-c vitamins are your warrior friends! 

Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps your immune system fight disease, contributes to collagen which you need to heal wounds and build tissue, and lowers blood pressure.

The food sources of your C include: many vegetables and fruits like grapefruit, strawberries, tomatoes, cantaloupe, and oranges.

The superstar C: It can’t prevent a cold, but if you take it regularly, your colds might be shorter and less miserable.

The elusive C: It is water-soluble so dividing doses of a supplement prevents your body from just losing the extra in your urine.

Deficiency can result in: fatigue, bruising, deterioration of the gums, and infections.

Interesting facts: your body can not make vitamin C yet it helps the body absorb iron when in combination.

We recommend: Shaklee’s Sustained Release Vita-C 500 mg” because it offers sustained-release protection hour after hour, using a proprietary sustained release system.

Remember: heat, light, and air can destroy vitamin C so eat C-rich foods raw or lightly steamed!
