Many foods contain vitamin C, so many assume they are getting enough of through their diet. But you may not be eating enough fruit or vegetables to meet your needs - you may even have limited access to them if you are in a remote northern location, for example - and a dietary deficiency can open you up to a variety of illnesses ranging from heart disease or strokes to skin disorders and gum disease. If your diet is deficient in it, the supplementation of vitamin C gives your body the tools it needs to produce collagen and combat oxidants. This New Roots product supplies it as sodium ascorbate - the buffered, less acidic form that is less likely to cause stomach irritation.
Vitamin C is an essential vitamin which can only be obtained through diet or supplements (our bodies cannot produce it themselves). We require large amounts of it not only to produce collagen to grow and repair our body’s connective tissues (which continually get slightly damaged as we go about our daily life) and help heal wounds, but also to help protect our bodies from the oxidative stress caused by free radicals (which is when atoms with uneven numbers of electrons that are circulating in your body start binding and interfering with important cellular components such as DNA or cell membranes). It also helps our bodies metabolize fats and proteins.
