Vitamin C 1000mg

  • Assists in detoxification
  • Healthy immune system function
  • Top water-soluble antioxidant
  • Promote healing and collagen formation

Vitamin C is the body's premier water-soluble antioxidant. Much of vitamin C's beneficial effect appears to be related to its role as an antioxidant and its ability to neutralize free radicals.1Free radicals are naturally occurring molecules that form continuously in the body as a product of normal metabolism. They are highly unstable molecules, which can damage normal tissues by stealing their electrons.

Antioxidants stabilize free radicals, which are molecules that lack electrons, by offering up their own electrons, essentially neutralizing them before they can cause damage.Vitamin C prevents the free radical damage caused by ultraviolet light upon the lens of the eye.2

Dosage: The RDA for vitamin C is 60 mg, which is the amount necessary to prevent deficiency syndrome known as scurvy, as initially described in sailors. However, growing evidence supports raising the RDA amount.6 Doses up to 5000 mg a day for more than three years have been shown to be safe and without side effects. We have set our recommended dose of Vitamin C at 2000 mg., which is the upper limit (UL) from the new Recommended Daily Intake (RDI) value.

Ray & Terry's Vitamin C 1000mg contains 100 tablets per bottle.

Ray & Terry's Vitamin C is equally effective when taken with or without food. However, if your digestive system is sensitive, you may want to take your supplements with meals.

Vitamin C is also needed to form collagen, an essential connective tissue found throughout the body in ligaments and tendons, blood vessels and in the lining of the joints. It has an important role in tissue growth and wound healing.3 In general, this vitamin supports healthy immune system function.

Used in absorption of calcium and iron and utilization of the B vitamin folic acid, Vitamin C is quite safe even in relatively high doses.4 It even detoxifies substances such as nitrites, which are cancer-causing preservatives found in such foods as lunch-meats and hot dogs.

The main side effect of high doses of vitamin C is diarrhea, which can be minimized by gradually increasing the dose over a period of time, and dividing the dose throughout the day. Vitamin C may be depleted by aspirin and tobacco smoke exposure.5 Since it enhances absorption of iron, individuals with a genetic predisposition towards iron overload should be careful with respect to vitamin C consumption.
