Vitamin C 1000mg

Clean and pure ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant in the maintenance of good health

It’s needed for collagen production--vital for maintenance of many of the body’s tissues, including joints, bones, teeth, gums, skin and arteries. This makes it essential for wound healing. Not only is vitamin C an antioxidant capable of neutralizing molecules that cause cellular damage; it serves to regenerate other antioxidant nutrients such as vitamin E. Vitamin C is also vital to the immune system in its work against infectious pathogens. It’s necessary for bile production, influencing the digestion of fats. The nutrient is also key for the production of the neurotransmitters responsible for how we feel and function. These are just some of the main functions of this essential nutrient.

About Vitamin C 1000mg

Humans are one of the few species that cannot manufacture its own vitamin C.  Although most fresh fruits and vegetables are a good source, vitamin C is one of the least stable vitamins and can therefore be destroyed by exposure to heat, such as through cooking. In addition, vitamin C cannot be stored by the body since it’s a water-soluble vitamin. This makes daily repletion necessary to avoid development of deficiency symptoms.

PLV Vitamin C provides 1000 milligrams of clean and pure ascorbic acid in each vegetable capsule. In this form it can be used as a vitamin C flush protocol to promote detoxification, or as an oral adjunct to IV-vitamin C treatments (when recommended by your ND).  It is sourced for non- GMO corn or non-GMO potato and is free of sodium and calcium. Like all PLV products, PLV Vitamin C is gluten-free.
