Potentiated Vitamin C

Vitamin C aka Ascorbic Acid is one of the most widely known vitamins and is available naturally in some fruits and vegetables. It has its highest concentration in citrus fruits. Its also made in a lab through a fermentation process from carbohydrates from corn starch, for addition to foods and in supplement manufacture.

Although vitamin C can be self made by some animals, humans must get their vitamin c from outside sources. The body uses vitamin C to support growth and repair of tissues. It helps the body make collagen, an important protein used to make skin, cartilage, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels.

Ascorbic acid is the chemical name for vitamin C and gets that name from the disease it was initially used to treat, Scurvy, caused by vitamin C deficiency (a signifies no, and scorbutus is the latin word for scurvy). Signs of vitamin deficiency include dry and splitting hair; gingivitis (inflammation of the gums) and bleeding gums; rough, dry, scaly skin; decreased wound-healing rate, easy bruising; nosebleeds; and a decreased ability to ward off infection.

Whats the dosage?
The usual dose for adults is 1 capsule per day with a glass of water. In times of recovering from Vitamin C deficiency double the dose for 3 days.

How long until I get the benefits?
It will start from the first dose.

What do the capsules contain?
Each capsule contains 500mg of Vitamin C, and 50mg of lemon Bioflavonoids.

What are Lemon Bioflavonoids?
Lemon Bioflavonoids are phytochemicals extracted from the rinds of lemons. Lemon Bioflavonoids work to enhance and prolong the effect of the vitamin C by inhibiting its breakdown in the body. Although Bioflavonoids themselves have health benefits, we have added them to this product to potentiate the vitamin C benefits.

What are the side effects?
Most people will not experience any side effects if taken as directed. Vitamin C in itself is of low toxicity, but there has been cases of adverse effects, usually because of mega dosing of 2000mg or more, such as diarrhea, nausea and other digestive disturbances. If you experience any side effects, stop taking and consult your doctor.

Are there any drug interactions?
A number of medicines may interact with vitamin C. including protease inhibitors (antiviral drugs), estrogens (including some contraceptives), anticoagulants, and aluminum products (such as antacids). These vitamin C interactions can increase your risk of developing side effects or reduce the effectiveness of the medications, so be sure to talk to your healthcare provider before using any other drugs with the vitamin.
