Life Extension Vitamin C With Dihydroquercetin - Your Vitamin C "Supercharged"
Vitamin C, also referred to as ascorbic acid, is a substance which can be found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin scavenges free radicals in your body and protects tissue from oxidation. Vitamin C also helps promote your body's absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation. Vitamin C is an essential cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.
Vitamin C also comes in at least two other forms: chemically bonded to minerals as ascorbates, and as the fat-soluble ascorbyl palmitate. Both of these forms are non-acidic.
Your body's highest vitamin C concentration is contained in the adrenal glands and is required at higher levels during times of stress. Physical stress on your body such as: cigarette smoking, ingestion of heavy metals, extreme temperatures, immune impairment, and chronic use of certain medications such as aspirin. All of these factors can cause an increased need for more vitamin C.
Because your body doesn't produce vitamin C naturally, it must be obtained through dietary sources or supplements. Few people realize, however, that vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that is quickly oxidized and excreted by the body, which limits its efficacy. Until now, those seeking to capture vitamin C’s optimal health benefits have had no choice but to consume it several times throughout the day.
Life Extension also adds dihydroquercetin, a flavonoid antioxidant which acts as a vitamin C “supercharger.” Studies have shown that dihydroquercetin also acts to inhibit the oxidation of vitamin C, thereby helping to maintain its concentration and recycle vitamin C throughout the body. This synergistic relationship between dihydroquercetin and vitamin C greatly enhances the efficiency of both molecules in your body’s organs and tissues. Life Extension Vitamin C with Dihydroquercetin was formulated for those seeking to obtain optimal efficacy and antioxidant protection from a vitamin C supplement.
