Info: 100 Veg. Capsules
Not all vitamin C supplements are alike in terms of how well tolerated, absorbable or effective they are, even at the same dosage. Protocol for Life Balance offers this superior formulation of a generous (500 mg) dose of a readily absorbable type of vitamin C in a buffered form which has been combined with calcium to make it non-acidic, making it easier on the stomach and digestive system.
This Vitamin C formula has been enhanced with co-factors to maximize how well your body can use it. Alpha Lipoic Acid, itself a potent antioxidant, has been added because it can not only help regenerate Vitamin C, but also help us improve use of Vitamin C in other ways, enhancing absorption into cells through glucose pathways, which can boost its ability to protect and repair cells. Citrus bioflavonoids are also included because they can increase the Vitamin C's absorption and improve its activity within cells. Similarly, it has been bolstered with threonic acid, a metabolite of vitamin C, because studies have shown it can improve our cells' uptake of vitamin C.
