Product Description

The Two Most Important Words For Improved Immunity: Vitamin C

  • Enhance immune system support
  • Powerful antioxidant & anti-inflammatory
  • Premium Vitamin C & L-Lysine
  • Proprietary Sustained Release Technology (SRT)

What is Sustained Release Technology (SRT) And Why Is It Important?

Sustained Release Technology means that the vitamin C slowly releases into your body over a 6 hour period, thus avoiding the common side-effects of diarrhea and upset stomach caused by most high-dose vitamin C supplement products – effectively acting as a buffering agent.

This slow release is especially important because vitamin C has a very short half-life (about 30 minutes), meaning it leaves the body very quickly and therefore needs to be delivered in a constant stream to maintain levels that promote optimal health.

Instead of the vitamin C being dumped into your system all at once and wasted/excreted (like with a non-time release vitamin C supplement), your body is able to continually absorb what it needs, distributing it throughout the body to perform its many critical jobs.

What Can A Vitamin C Supplement Help Me With?*

  • Support the immune system, inhibit viral replication, promote healing and protect cells from damage.
  • Build and strengthen collagen to provide essential support for the blood vessels, arteries, ligaments, bones, gums and teeth.
  • Increase metabolism, promote weight loss, and boost energy production by making carnitine, the amino acid responsible for transporting fat to mitochondria for conversion to energy.
  • Promote brain and eye (retina) health.
  • Improve heart function and overall cardiovascular health.
  • Discourage calcium/plaque formation on artery walls.
  • Regenerate other antioxidants like vitamin E and CoQ10.
  • Neutralize oxidative damage caused by free radicals and protect cells from injury and death.
  • Increase artery and blood vessel flexibility and prevent inflammation in the cardiovascular system.
  • Promote adrenal gland function, which uses large amounts of vitamin C to protect the body from stress.
  • Boost production of norepinephrine, a neurotransmitter critical to brain function that's known to affect mood.

Why do we need vitamin C?

We need vitamin C because our bodies should be making it. Unlike most mammals who produce their own vitamin C in very high amounts (and even more under stress), humans do not have the ability to manufacture vitamin C. Interestingly, we have 3 out of the 4 enzymes needed to make vitamin C, but the 4th enzyme is turned off — the gene that made the 4th enzyme mutated and no longer is expressed in humans. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet and/or a vitamin C supplement in order to support proper health.

What Are The Symptoms of Vitamin C Deficiency?

According to the National Institutes of Health, too little vitamin C can lead to signs and symptoms of deficiency, including:

  • Dry and splitting hair
  • Gingivitis (inflammation of the gums)
  • Bleeding gums
  • Rough, dry, scaly skin
  • Decreased wound-healing rate
  • Easy bruising
  • Nosebleeds
  • Weakened tooth enamel
  • Swollen and painful joints
  • Anemia
  • Decreased ability to fight infection
  • Possible weight gain because of slowed metabolism

Can You Replenish A Deficiency Taking Only The Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA)?

No. The RDA is the minimum required to avoid death from scurvy, not the maximum needed for good health. As in all cases, "deficiency" is not something that's digital – meaning you either have it or you don't – it's a matter of degrees. Researchers are proving the many ways in which "sub-clinical scurvy" (meaning you are deficient but not immediately about to die) is significantly detrimental to health and makes the body vulnerable to various kinds of damage.

Why is Lysine included?

Lysine, or L-lysine, is an essential amino acid, which means that it is necessary for human health but cannot be made by the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Lysine is important for proper growth, and it plays an essential role in the production of carnitine, a nutrient responsible for converting fatty acids into energy and helping to lower cholesterol. Lysine appears to help the body absorb and conserve calcium, and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen.

Lysine inhibits viral replication and therefore is very helpful to the immune system in fighting off infections. Taking lysine supplements can speed recovery time and reduce the chance of recurrent breakouts of the herpes infection, such as fever blisters or cold sores. Lysine also plays a role in preventing plaque from forming on artery walls. Lysine is one component of a protocol proposed by Linus Pauling to promote optimal heart and immune health.
