Buffered Vitamin C (90 capsules)

Buffered Vitamin C (90 capsules)

Vitamin C supports immune function, nerves, collagen production, blood vessel integrity, and as we all know, free-radical defense. Combining our organic, super-concentrated aloe vera with the vitamin C may help your body absorb more of the nutrient. Desert Harvest Buffered Vitamin C is IC-friendly (like ester-C); easy on the stomach and urinary tract.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals and facilitates the body’s ability to absorb iron from foods and food supplements. Recent research indicates that people with low levels of vitamin C may run a higher risk of developing Type II diabetes (metabolic syndrome), systemic lupus erythematosus, rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, or multiple sclerosis.

Vitamin C is well known for its impact on immune function. It increases production of white blood cells, levels of antibodies and production of interferon, and assists in the functioning of specific immune cells. Various studies of vitamin C and the common cold have resulted in mixed recommendations. A randomized, controlled, five-year clinical trial suggests that vitamin C supplementation significantly reduces the frequency of the common cold, but it has no apparent effect on the duration or severity of the common cold. A 2002 study involving 180 British subjects found that vitamin C could prevent the common cold, limit severe symptoms, and shorten its duration. You will have to decide for yourself if it works for you!

New research suggests that vitamin C may work to reduce production of inflammatory compounds in the gut, and it may also help to inhibit gastric cell cancer growth. Vitamin C supplements may help reduce the levels of inflammation in various forms of colitis.

In a study involving subjects from the general population, CRP and leukocyte levels were inversely correlated to serum vitamin C levels, demonstrating an effect on atherosclerosis (hardening of the arteries).

Even short-term deficiency of vitamin C may adversely impact eye health and set you up for cataracts and macular degeneration.

Antioxidants (like vitamin C) contribute to long-term structural and functional integrity of the brain by countering oxidative damage in neural tissues. Two recent studies found that patients with Alzheimer's or vascular dementia had significantly lower plasma levels of vitamin C, which supports the role of antioxidants in the prevention of brain dysfunction. A seven-year study of 2,082 elderly subjects found a 34% lower risk of developing cognitive impairment and a 29% lower risk of experiencing cognitive decline, compared with non-antioxidant users.

    I have always suffered from colds, virus's flu's and anything bronchial. Every year I catch something several times and it's never good. But ever since I have been taking this Vitamin C product the colds have been minimal to nothing. It really stabilizes my immune system. I have interstitial cystitis and the aloe products have saved my life. I recommend all of the Aloe supplements-thank you Desert Harvest.
