Life Extension Buffered Vitamin C Powder 454g
Buffered Vitamin C powder contains the essential Vitamin C nutrient which can help reduce oxidative stress, support collagen formation, promote iron absorption and support the immune system. Simultaneously Buffered Vitamin C also contains the essential minerals calcium, magnesium, zinc and potassium to produce a reduced-acid solution that is non-irritating to the stomach and intestinal lining.
Why it Works: Vitamin C is an essential mineral that the body cannot produce, and is required at higher-than-normal levels during times of stress [1-4]. Vitamin C is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C can scavenge free radicals in the body and helps protect tissues from oxidative stress as well as support the immune system [5-12]. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while inhibiting its oxidation in the body [13,14]. Furthermore, Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth [8-10]. It can also help aid physical stresses on the body such as ingestion of heavy metals [15-20] cigarette smoking [21-24] and extreme temperatures [25-30] also signal the need for increased vitamin C intake . Vitamin C Powder contains four buffering minerals, in addition to ascorbic acid (Vitamin C) which promotes whole-body health. When mixed with water, Buffered Vitamin C powder produces a reduced-acid solution that is non-irritating to the stomach and intestinal lining. The minerals make this solution a more pleasant-tasting and healthful drink. The substances used in this product make it effervesce for a short while when mixed with water.
The Science Behind the Product: The human body does not produce vitamin C which must be received from foods and supplements . Vitamin C levels may drop during stress situations , why higher vitamin C intake can be necessary during times of stress [1-4]. A lack of vitamin C has been linked to duration of colds along with immune system problems . A lack of vitamin C can broadly affect various key aspects of maintaining a proper immune function . Studies suggest that vitamin C is crucial for normal formation of bone proteins. And it also shows that intake of the vitamin C plays a role in preventing bone loss .
How to Use: Mix one (1) teaspoon of BUFFERED VITAMIN C POWDER into a glass of water. Wait for the fizz to stop before consuming. The minerals buffer out the normally acidic vitamin C to make a pleasant tasting drink. To ensure product consistency store tightly closed in a cool, dry place. When mixed with water, the substances used in this product give bubbles off for a short while.
