NOW - Vitamin C-500 Calcium Ascorbate, 100 Capsules
Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system.* Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint health.* Vitamin C is needed for amino acid metabolism, neurotransmitter synthesis, and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron.* It is also a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen molecules generated during normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors.* This product supplies Calcium Ascorbate, a buffered form of Vitamin C that is bioavailable and nonacidic; it is enhanced with
Bioflavonoids, which work synergistically with Vitamin C.*
