Lipid- and water-soluble vitamin C plus citrus bioflavonoids
Ascorbyl-C + Bioflavonoids offers an excellent source of vitamin C in both lipid- and water-soluble forms, plus citrus bioflavonoids. Vitamin C is one of the most important dietary antioxidants, and helps to reduce free radicals and lipid oxidation in body tissues. Although normally only water-soluble, this formula provides vitamin C from ascorbyl palmitate, a bioavailable lipid-soluble form shown in preclinical research to cross the blood-brain barrier and scavenge free radicals in the brain. Magnesium, potassium and zinc ascorbates are also included to buffer vitamin C. As this neutral pH form of vitamin C is gentler on the stomach, it may reduce the potential gastric irritation associated with ascorbic acid - making it ideal for sensitive individuals. Zinc helps to maintain immune function along with vitamin C, while potassium and magnesium help to maintain electrolyte balance. Potassium supplementation also plays a vital role in vascular function. As many adults do not consume the recommended level of vitamin C and these essential minerals, Ascorbyl-C + Bioflavonoids can help contribute to their recommended dietary intakes. Citrus bioflavonoids are also included to provide additional antioxidants, and have been shown in preclinical studies to increase the bioavailability of vitamin C.
