Helps maintain ressistance to colds, mild infection and hayfever.
Vitamin C has long been known as an essential nutrient. Essential because the human body does not manufacture it’s own Vitamin C, and because of its vital nutritional role.
Vitamin C has enjoyed the reputation of the key vitamin in the prevention of colds and associated winter infections. Far less universally recognised is this versatile vitamin’s effectiveness in dealing with a wide range of conditions from allergies to skin ulcers.
Vitamin C’s primary role involves the manufacture and maintenance of connective tissue, in bringing about the normal metabolism of cholesterol, and in the production of cortisol by the adrenal glands. It is biochemically active in the production of collagen for both skin and bones, and in synthesising the hormone noradrenalin that governs pulse rate and blood pressure.
As an antioxidant, Vitamin C is a potent scavenger of free radicals, protecting against tissue damage caused by chemical pollutants, cigarette smoke and environmental toxins.
