Vitamin C is consumed in a supplemental form by millions of people across the world for its antioxidant properties which are well-documented in medical research. C-1000 provides a potent dosage of this key vitamin and is blended with Bioflavonoids, natural synergists to Vitamin C.

For years vitamin C has been considered the king of antioxidants. First isolated in 1928 by the Hungarian biochemist Albert Szent-Gyorgyi, the importance of vitamin C in human health is remarkable as can be attested to by the hundreds of studies on this extraordinary vitamin. An interesting fact is that although vitamin C is so essential for our health we are one of only a few animals that cant synthesize this vitamin. We must obtain this vitamin through diet and/or supplementation. Most animals by contrast have the ability to make it by converting glucose into vitamin C in either the kidneys or liver. In addition to the inability to synthesize this vitamin we dont store any significant quantity of it either. The greatest concentration of vitamin C is in the adrenal glands where it is used for the production of the stress response hormones adrenaline, cortisol, histamine, etc.

One of the earliest known diseases recorded in human history is scurvy. Scurvy results from a prolonged deficiency of vitamin C. Although back then the cause of scurvy was unknown it resulted in the deaths of many. It was eventually noted by sailors on long sea voyages that certain foods, like limes kept this disease at bay. We of course know today that the foods they consumed were good sources of vitamin C.

WHAT IS VITAMIN C?
Vitamin C, known chemically as ascorbic acid, has the primary function of manufacturing collagen. Collagen is the principle protein in our human body and is needed for bone, connective tissue, tendons, cartilage, and wound repair. Vitamin C is also the most potent antioxidant in the human body having the ability to protect cells against the destructive effects of free radicals (reactive compounds that damage cells). Vitamin C also has the ability to regenerate vitamin E and prevents vitamins B1, B2, and B5 from oxidation. Vitamin C is water soluble. In simple terms this vitamin dissolves in water and doesnt require fat for absorption. 80 to 90 percent of vitamin C is absorbed in the small intestines and 75 percent of it is excreted within 24 hours of consumption.

WHY IS VITAMIN C IMPORTANT?
Given that we can neither manufacture nor store any considerable amounts of vitamin C, regular consumption or supplementation is an absolute necessity. Several studies have shown that many individuals, especially those under chronic emotional, psychological, and physical stress, have suboptimal levels of vitamin C. Chronic stress can dramatically increase urinary vitamin C excretion.
