EquiLife Alkalizing Vitamin C
Supplementing with Vitamin C is crucial to maintain a robust immune system, yet most Vitamin C supplements are highly acidic and can cause GI upset. Alkalizing Vitamin C is a powerful immune booster balanced with the benefits of added calcium, magnesium, and potassium. These alkaline minerals help to reduce possible stomach upset by balancing acidity levels, making for an easier supplementaion.
Supports a robust immune system
Alkaline minerals reduce possible GI upset
High dose Vitamin C plus Calcium, Magnesium and Potassium
Potent antioxidant protection
Promotes collagen synthesis, muscle tissue maintenance, and repair
Alkalizing Vitamin C combines the powerful antioxidant properties with even more immune support from key minerals. Vitamin C It has been shown to stimulate both the production and function of white blood cells, especially neutrophils, lymphocytes, and phagocytes. These immune cells are the front line defense for the body and utilize Vitamin C for its free radical protective function from self-inflicted oxidation.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that boasts many benefits including boosting immune system function and antioxidant reserves, maintaining normal inflammatory balance, as well as promoting collagen formation to maintain healthy skin, ligaments, tendons and joints. It's considered essential to humans because we are unable to synthesize it naturally. Furthermore, exposure to smoke, pollution, radiation, heavy metals and high-stress lifestyles all increase the body's requirement for vitamin C, making dietary supplementation recommended.
Vitamin C is crucial to proper immune function increasing natural killer cell activity, lymphocyte proliferation, and overall immune balance. It is a potent antioxidant, acting to neutralize free radical damage to cells, including DNA, lipids, and proteins. It does this by donating electrons to unstable molecules that occur from oxidative stress which breaks the chain of free radical damage to cells and tissues.
Skin & Beauty Support
The antioxidant properties of vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis have been shown to promote skin health. Specifically, research has found that its role in collagen formation makes it vital to maintaining skin, capillary, gum, joint and skeletal health. Keratinocytes (cells that produce keratin) have a high capacity for transporting vitamin C which compensates for limited blood flow to the epidermis. Research has also shown that Vitamin C's role in normal tissue repair and recovery may include promoting keratinocyte differentiation which stimulates the formation of the epidermal barrier and re-establishes the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis. Furthermore, intakes of dietary vitamin C have been correlated with a decreased risk of dry skin.
Research has shown vitamin C to have a strong relationship with cardiovascular health and that supplemental vitamin C intake supports this. Furthermore, supplementation had a significant impact on maintaining healthy blood fats. In addition, cross-sectional studies have indicated that plasma vitamin C concentration helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels in both men and women.
