Vitamin C is a powerful vitamin with infection-fighting properties, playing a large role in immune system function. Vitamin C is crucial for the formation of collagen, making this vitamin very important for wound repair, healthy gums, strong bones and teeth, and in the prevention of bruising.
As a powerful antioxidant, it protects the aqueous areas of the body (including the blood, intracellular fluid and interstitial fluid) from free radicals. Because it is a water-soluble vitamin, the body cannot store vitamin C, making regular supplementation vital. The body’s need for vitamin C increases during times of stress because vitamin C participates in the production of vital chemicals, such as those needed for the "fight or flight" response.
Natural Factors Vitamin C 500 mg also contains citrus bioflavonoids, rutin, hesperidin, and rosehips. Bioflavonoids protect, strengthen, maintain and repair collagen, capillaries and connective tissue, and possess powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant agents.
Bioflavonoids have been shown to improve the absorption and therapeutic action of vitamin C and protect vitamin C from oxidation in the body, allowing the body to reap more benefits from the vitamin. Also known to have a positive impact on the cardiovascular system as well as memory, bioflavonoids work synergistically with vitamin C to enhance each other’s activity.
