Ultimate Vitamin C is an optimized Vitamin C formula enhanced with vitamin D and key co-factors to support the body's antioxidant and immune defenses. Three different forms of vitamin C are included, to optimize the absorption of this essential vitamin for health and vitality.
Why Do We Need Vitamin C?
Everyone knows we need vitamin C every day to stay healthy. In fact, vitamin C plays vital roles on many levels in maintaining not only a healthy immune system but also keeping body tissues and structures strong. Vitamin C is a fundamental player in building the bricks and mortar of the body. Biosynthesis of collagen, the key connective tissue protein requires vitamin C. Connective tissue such as ligaments, tendons and cartilage need vitamin C to remain intact, which explains why in a severe state of vitamin C deficiency (known as "scurvy"), tissues lack the structural strength collagen provides and the body literally begins to fall apart.
How does Vitamin C Help Keep Skin Healthy?
Skin is a type of connective tissue. Like other connective tissues, skin is kept firm and strong by collagen. In its role as a collagen-builder, vitamin C stands out as a key skin health nutrient.
Three Forms of Vitamin C
Ultimate C contains three forms of vitamin: ascorbic acid, magnesium ascorbate and ascorbyl palmitate. As a water-soluble vitamin, ascorbic acid is easily assimilated; in fact, studies have shown that pure ascorbic acid is absorbed as well, or better than so-called "natural" ascorbic acid in foods. Magnesium ascorbate is ascorbic acid buffered with magnesium, which has two benefits: 1) Magnesium buffers the acidity of ascorbic acid and 2) Magnesium is an essential mineral that supports general health on many levels. Ascorbyl palmitate is both water and fat-soluble.
Long known as an essential vitamin for strong bones, due to its role in calcium metabolism, vitamin D has a key influence on a long list of biological functions that keep us healthy. A flood of recent research shows vitamin D is important for cardiovascular health, immune support, healthy muscles and joints, brain health and much more.
Boosting the Antioxidant Power of Vitamin C
As a dietary supplement, adults take 2 capsules daily. Best results obtained with daily use.
