- Vitamin C helps to maintain the normal function of our immune systems especially during and after intense exercise
- It contributes to the normal formation of collagen and for the normal function of cartilage, bones, skin, gums, teeth and blood vessels
- It also contributes to normal energy-yielding metabolism
Vitamin C is recognized as an antioxidant and helps to protect against oxidative stress caused by free radicals. The build-up of these free radicals over time may contribute to the aging process. It may also contribute to the development of serious health conditions such as heart disease and arthritis. It plays a role in the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of the body. Vitamin C helps in the absorption of iron, the metabolism of fat and the maintenance of normal cholesterol levels
Why FoodFusion™ Vitamin C? Nearly all Vitamin C supplements available are synthetically made ascorbic acid, or variations such as calcium ascorbate, magnesium ascorbate or potassium ascorbate. These laboratory produced vitamins are not natural vitamin C, they are chemically synthesized isolates that have been manufactured industrially and these synthetic molecules mimic only one component of the multitude of vital nutrient complexes that are actually found in food vitamin C such as proteins, enzymes, amino acids, carbohydrates, lipids and fatty acids.
