Vitamin C ReSet Powder
Humans are the only mammals that don’t make their own vitamin C. This means we must get it from our diets. More than just a boost to the immune system, vitamin C plays a critical role in many of the body’s functions and is a powerful antioxidant.
Vitamin C has also been shown to fight oxidative stress, support oral and brain health, manage stress, increase nutrient availability, improve energy levels, combat weight gain, and reduce toxic burden, and so much more. Taking a vitamin C supplement insures you receive a proper intake of vitamin C daily to support the body’s many needs.
Fruits and vegetables are the best sources of vitamin C. Citrus fruits, tomatoes and tomato juice, and potatoes are major contributors of vitamin C to the American diet. Other good food sources include red and green peppers, kiwifruit, broccoli, strawberries, Brussels sprouts, and cantaloupe.
The vitamin C content of food may be reduced by prolonged storage and by cooking because ascorbic acid is water soluble and is destroyed by heat. Steaming or microwaving may lessen cooking losses.
Clinical studies that validate the need for vitamin C supplementation use concentrated doses of vitamin C greater than 200mgs, however. For example, in one study that included 293,172 subjects free of coronary heart disease at baseline found that people who took over 700 mg/day of supplemental vitamin C had a 25% lower risk of coronary heart disease incidence than those who took no supplemental vitamin C.
