Vitamin C 1000mg Plus
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin.
In the body, it acts as an antioxidant, helping to protect cells from the damage caused by free radicals.
Free radicals are compounds formed when our bodies convert the food we eat into energy.
People are also exposed to free radicals in the environment from cigarette smoke, air pollution, and ultraviolet light from the sun.
The body also needs vitamin C to make collagen, a protein required to help wounds heal.
In addition, vitamin C improves the absorption of iron from plant-based foods and helps the immune system to work properly to protect the body from disease.
Nature’s Way Vitamin C 1000mg Plus is acid-free and added with citrus bioflavonoids, hesperidin and rutin to enhance the absorption and utilisation of the Vitamin C.
