Buffered Vitamin C
1000 mg / Antioxidant and Immune Support
Buffered Vitamin C contains 100% pure, corn-free vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid), specially buffered with calcium and bioflavonoid complex. Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans and animals. It is a water-soluble, chain-breaking antioxidant that reacts directly with superoxide, hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen. Laboratory studies show that vitamin C completely protects lipids in plasma and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) against atherogenic peroxidative damage. In addition, vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid, and regenerates vitamin E. The antioxidant functions of vitamin C appear to have clinical significance in providing protection from free radical damage to the eyes, lungs, blood, and the immune system.
