What is Vita C 500?
Vita C 500 combines the potent antioxidant properties of vitamin C with a versatile range of nutrients and minerals in a highly bioavailable professional grade nutraceutical capsule for the support of optimal whole body health. Yet, vitamin C is not naturally a very bioavailable nutrient, which means that the body cannot absorb it easily. In fact, vitamin C always requires the assistance of other minerals and nutrients before the body can absorb it. Vita C 500 has been expertly developed with ascorbic acid, which is a highly absorbable and buffered form of vitamin C that has already been paired with a mineral ion and is ready to be utilized by the body immediately without leading to the stomach irritation that can accompany non-buffered forms of vitamin C.
Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid and mineral ascorbates)
Vitamin C can assist the body in a variety of critical processes and functions, including red blood cell production, protection against oxidative stress and immune response.
Calcium (as calcium carbonate and calcium ascorbate)
Calcium carbonate pairs calcium with ascorbate, a vitamin C molecule that has already paired with a mineral ion. Not only is this highly bioavailable form of vitamin C commonly used as an antacid, but the combination of vitamin C and calcium has long been recognized for its ability to support optimal bone and cardiovascular health.
Magnesium ascorbate combines ascorbate with magnesium. This buffered form of vitamin C is known to support optimal metabolic, immune and muscle function, as well as proper energy production.
Zinc (as zinc ascorbate)
Zinc ascorbate pairs a zinc molecule with ascorbate, creating another highly bioavailable form of vitamin C that has the potential to contribute to optimal whole body health. In addition to providing the body with the supportive traits of vitamin C, this potent combination also provides the body with another essential nutrient. While the body cannot produce zinc, it still requires this essential nutrient for support in a variety of processes that include growth, development, immune function, DNA synthesis, gene expression, protein synthesis and a wide range of reactions involving various enzymes throughout the body.
Manganese (as manganese ascorbate)
Manganese ascorbate provides the body with the additional supportive traits of manganese, a trace mineral that the body needs for a variety of functions that include calcium absorption, sex hormone production, cardiovascular function and the formation of bones and connective tissues. This combination is also commonly used to promote optimal digestion. Since manganese is a trace mineral, it is only found in very small amounts throughout the body.
Potassium (as potassium citrate)
Potassium citrate is another combination that is commonly used as an antacid, and this type of salt has also been recognized for its ability to reduce the risk of kidney stones.
Pectin is a plant-based fiber that has been known to support a variety of aspects of whole body health that include metabolic function, iron absorption, gastrointestinal (GI) function, appetite management and cardiovascular function.
Mixed Citrus Bioflavonoids 50mg (rose hips, orange, lemon, grapefruit, acerola, cherry, hesperidin, rutin)
Bioflavonoids are micronutrients found naturally in citrus fruits and other plants, often near natural sources of vitamin C. Bioflavonoids actually enhance the function of vitamin C, and they have also been recognized for their ability to support healthy cardiovascular and immune function.
Why Do You Vitamin C?
Vitamin C has long been recognized for its immune-boosting capabilities. In fact, many people immediately reach for a glass of orange juice as soon as they experience their first sniffles of the season. Vitamin C does, in fact, support optimal immune function by helping protect the body from oxidative stress. Yet, this essential vitamin promotes so many additional facets of optimal whole body health that go beyond its antioxidant properties, including healthy joints, cognitive function, iron absorption and cardiovascular function. While the body requires vitamin C in order to function at an optimal level, it cannot produce this nutrient on its own, earning it the classification of “essential vitamin”. To make this relationship even more difficult, vitamin C is not highly bioavailable, meaning that the body does not absorb it well. In fact, vitamin C often requires the assistance of other nutrients, vitamins and organic compounds in order to be both absorbed and utilized by the body. Fortunately, the nutraceutical industry has recognized both the importance of vitamin C to optimal whole body health and its lack of bioavailability.
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is still best known for its antioxidant properties. By responding to chaos-inducing molecules known as free radical oxidants, vitamin C can help reduce the risk of oxidative stress and inflammation. Reducing inflammation, in particular, has shown the potential to reduce the risk of chronic illness significantly at the root level.
Antioxidants have also shown an ability to promote healthy cognitive function. Antioxidants like vitamin C can address chaotic free radical activity in all parts of the body, including sensitive areas near the brain and spine. By protecting these areas, strong antioxidants have the potential to reduce the risk of dementia, memory loss and other forms of cognitive decline. This strong antioxidant profile makes vitamin C an essential vitamin that the body simply cannot do without.
Vitamin C has also been recognized for its multiple positive impacts on cardiovascular health, including blood pressure and cholesterol levels. This essential vitamin supports healthy blood pressure regulation by helping relax blood vessels throughout the body. At the same time, vitamin C has the potential to reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease by helping lower levels of harmful LDL cholesterol.
Another one of vitamin C’s impacts on whole body health revolves around its relationship with iron, another essential nutrient. Like vitamin C, iron is critical to a range of processes and functions that contribute to optimal wellness. Iron bears the crucial responsibility of helping produce red blood cells as well as moving oxygen throughout the body via the bloodstream. Also like vitamin C, iron is unfortunately not produced by the body and not considered to be highly bioavailable, which can lead to some detrimental symptoms and more serious health conditions if not properly addressed. Over time, a lack of iron can lead to iron deficiency anemia, which can cause a variety of symptoms and conditions that include shortness of breath, fatigue, lightheadedness, chest pain and chills. Vitamin C, while not highly bioavailable itself, actually enhances the bioavailability of iron and helps reduce the risk of anemia.
Vitamin C also has a positive impact on bone and joint health. By reducing uric acid in the bloodstream, this essential vitamin has the potential to also reduce joint inflammation and the more serious inflammatory joint condition known as gout. Vitamin C is also required by the body for the production of collagen, a protein responsible for proper bone building.
How can EVEXIAS Vita C 500 help me?
While it would be convenient enough to just pour a glass of orange juice, the body still requires the presence and assistance of other nutrients in order to absorb it properly. Professional grade nutraceutical products like Vita C 500 have been expertly developed with this potential roadblock in mind. Not only is Vita C 500 loaded with a highly bioavailable and buffered form of ascorbic acid, but it has also been developed to include a robust profile of micronutrients that have been combined with ascorbate. This highly bioavailable form of vitamin C has been paired with a mineral ion for enhanced absorbability. Vita C 500 also contains additional micronutrients known as bioflavonoids, which have been carefully selected for their shared ability to enhance the function and efficacy of vitamin C in the body. This professional grade nutraceutical product has been designed to get the most out of vitamin C to support optimal whole body health.
