Super C 1000 may reduce the severity and duration of colds and mild upper respiratory infections and provide temporary relief from allergy symptoms such as hayfever, catarrh and blocked sinuses.
Vitamin C is also required for the formation of collagen and connective tissue, so may assist wound repair (especially after surgery), promote tissue healing and help reduce the tendency to bruise easily. Gentle-on-the-stomach formula with added bioflavonoids to enhance vitamin C activity.
The first thing that probably comes into your mind when you think about vitamin C is its longheld reputation as a treatment for colds. But while it’s true that vitamin C may reduce the severity of colds and other mild upper respiratory tract infections and help decrease their duration, it also has many other health benefits.
Due to its role in the formation of collagen and connective tissue, vitamin C is important for the structural integrity of the skin, bones, muscles, organs and blood vessels. It may also assist wound repair (especially after surgery) and promote tissue healing. Vitamin C also helps maintain healthy capillaries and may help reduce the incidence of easy bruising.
In the digestive tract, it enhances the availability and absorption of iron and is required for the conversion of cholesterol into bile in the liver, thereby helping to support healthy liver function and digestion. Perhaps most importantly, vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that helps protect cells from the effects of free radical damage and assists in the regeneration or recycling of vitamin E.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that’s excreted in the urine every day, rather than stored by the body for future use. As a result, it needs to be replenished on a daily basis. Dietary sources of vitamin C include citrus fruit, kiwifruit, red and green capsicum, and a wide range of other fruit and vegetables. If you decide to take a supplement to top up the vitamin C you get from your diet, look for a formula that also contains bioflavonoids, which are believed to enhance the activity of vitamin C in the body.
