Supplementing your diet with Vit C can make a greater impact between minimum and optimum health than perhaps any other single nutrient.
We blend herbs naturally high in Vit C and bioflavinoids: Organic Rosehips, Hibiscus, Yellowdock, Lemongrass, Lemon Balm, Hops, Cardamom, Pine, and Raw Honey in Vegetable Glycerin.
Foods high in vitamin C, such as citrus fruits and many vegetables, are also excellent sources of bioflavonoids. Research suggests vitamin C and bioflavonoids have a complementary effect, making them both more effective when ingested together rather than separately.
The greatest source of Vit C is a raw whole foods in your diet however it is hard to get the recommended daily allowance with todays fast paced diets and life. We suggest Supplementing Vit C for a host of different benefits. Perhaps more important than its effect on general health, Vit C supplementation can serves to moderate the severity of the common cold and reduce the intabolare pressure in glaucoma, the inflammation of periodontal disease and intolerance to heat. Vit C supplements can help to concentrate vasodilating prostaglandins to help relieve chest tightness in asthmatics. The adrenal glands concentrate the most Vit C in the body where it is used as an ingredient of adrenaline which is essential in the body's reaction to stress. Serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels, risk factors in heart disease and atherosclerosis, can be reduced significantly by Vit C supplementation. These reductions occur because Vit C helps in the transformation of cholesterol to bile acids which can then be more easily excreted by the body. Vit C is also essential for the metabolism of folic acid. The absorption of iron is also increased.
