Super-Versatile Essential VitaminEverybody needs Vitamin C, especially those who subject their systems to intense stress, like athletes. In addition to being a key antioxidant for overall health, detoxification and production of metabolic hormones, vitamin C is necessary for normal glandular function -- particularly the adrenal and thyroid. It also helps boost the immune system, and subsequently, can also help reduce the effects of colds and flu. Indeed, there are so many diverse health benefits rendered by this remarkable vitamin that most researchers and clinicians reserve their highest praise for its nutritional power.Long associated with its role in helping reduce the effects of colds and flu, Vitamin C helps support the production of white blood cells (lymphocytes and phagocytes) which protect against infection. People with pneumonia tend to have reduced Vitamin C levels, and Vitamin C supplementation may shorten recovery time.Vitamin C's powerful antioxidant capacity helps clean up the free radicals and damaging reactive oxygen that flood your system at the cellular level, causing inflammation. Reduction of this inflammation has many benefits, including enhanced cardiovascular health.Vitamin C plays a key role in preventing iron deficiency, as it improves the absorption of iron from the diet, enabling the body to better produce red blood cells and transport oxygen throughout the body. Vitamin is also a key agent for regenerating restorative vitamin E in the intracellular fluid.Vitamin C's benefits are not strictly limited to general good health. Vitamin C has been linked to the strengthening of bones and connective tissue, quicker healing of wounds, and greater elasticity and health of arterial walls. Some studies have shown that taking Vitamin C may modulate stress hormone concentrations, supporting healthy hormonal function.Vitamin C also acts as a coenzyme for many metabolic pathways, and may help reduce muscle soreness after intense exercise. Finally, research shows that athletes who have poor Vitamin C status oxidized less fat during exercise compared to those with normal vitamin C levels.In summation, C is good for you. Of course, some C's are better for you than others. When supplementing with Vitamin C, superior nutrient content, as always, is key. ProSource brand Super Vitamin C is a premium-grade formulation unique in its high levels of purity, potency, and bioavailability.
