Humans cannot make it and do not store it and it must be consumed on a regular basis for optimal health. Cooking and exposure to light destroys vitamin C in foods.* Many health professionals believe North Americans are consuming far too little. Diets consisting primarily of packaged, preserved and canned foods tend to be low in vitamin C.* Fatigue and decline in mental performance are associated with inadequate vitamin C intake.* Why is vitamin C important? Vitamin C is best known as an antioxidant. It promotes proper function of cells throughout the body, and reduces cellular damage from free radicals.* Reducing oxidative (free radical) damage supports healthy aging. Oxidative damage alone is associated with increased risk for many health conditions: the heart, brain, eyes, blood vessels, bones and joints are all impacted from oxidative damage. Some scientists believe oxidative damage is the first step to declining health.* Smoking increases oxidative damage and destroys vitamin C.* Vitamin C plays an important role in healthy immune function.* Vitamin C is involved with the metabolism of several vitamins, some hormones, carbohydrates and fats and enhances iron absorption. The calcium, magnesium and potassium in this product are valuable minerals. They support healthy nerve function, promote strong bones, muscle relaxation and normal fluid balance. Despite all the media attention, many Americans still do not get enough calcium, and magnesium is known to be void in many diets.* This product is an efficient source of vitamin C, calcium, magnesium and potassium.
