Vitamin C with Rose Hips (sustained release) - A potent antioxidant, immune system enhancer and collagen booster


Benefits of Vitamin C

  • Potent immune system enhancer
  • Promotes collagen production
  • Promotes healthy hair, skin and nails
  • Supports brain and heart health
  • Helps protect against oxidative stress, tissue damage, disease and faster ageing.
  • Enhances the body's absorption of iron and inhibits its oxidation
  • Helps reduce blood sugar levels and lipids

Vitamin C with Rose Hips is water-soluble and is essential for the body and its systems to function correctly. The addition of rose hips, (from the fruit of rose plants) contain a large quantity of natural ascorbic acid. This formula provides a sustained release of Vitamin C with Rose Hips, an added source of vitamin C.

Sustained release promotes a delayed and continual absorption of vitamin C throughout the day.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) works as a potent antioxidant which helps regenerate other antioxidants in the body, such as alpha-tocopherol (vitamin E), glutathione, and uric acid. As an antioxidant, it scavenges free radicals, protecting tissues from oxidative stress and damage.

The immune system is particularly dependent on vitamin C for protection and its correct function. Vitamin C also aids in wound healing, and is an essential cofactor in collagen manufacture, helping support bones, teeth, skin, and the arterial walls. Vitamin C also enhances the body’s absorption of iron, while at the same time, inhibiting its oxidation.

Research demonstrates that 1000g of vitamin C intake daily may be beneficial to diabetics (type 2) as it can help to reduce blood sugar levels and lipids, thus reducing diabetes-related damage to blood vessels.   

Vitamin C also plays a role in heart health and in the prevention of cognitive decline with age and its associated neurodegenerative disorders.

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant, which has a wide range of effects on the body. It is one of the key supplements for boosting optimal immune system function, it is required for the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that helps support skin, teeth and bones - collagen is also required to help wounds to heal quicker.

The adrenal glands contain more vitamin C than any other organ in the body, when stress is high more vitamin C may be required. Stressors include both physical and mental issues.

Note: Research shows that diabetics should take vitamin C - taking 1000 mg daily can help reduce the risk of complications.

Vitamin C and glucose enter the cells via the same pathways. As a result, vitamin C will compete with glucose to enter the cell.

As a dietary supplement, adults take one tablet, one to three times daily with meals, or as directed by a healthcare professional.

Store in a cool, dry place, away from direct light.

Do not exceed the recommended daily dose.
