Staying Healthy ▶ Supplement Facts ▶
While most mammals are able to synthesize vitamin C, humans lack the enzyme required to synthesize vitamin C from glucose and, must obtain the vitamin from their diet. The primary function of vitamin C is to help manufacture collagen, the main structural protein of connective tissues in the human body. Vitamin C is crucial in variety of biological functions, particularly the immune system, skin, blood vessels, arteries and gums.
C-Flav is a formula that combines vitamin C with various bioflavonoids to mirror the way vitamin C is found in nature. Created from multiple sources rich in vitamin C, C-Flav provides antioxidant protection, enhances immune function and provides support for healthy collagen synthesis and connective tissue. It also supports normal levels of inflammation throughout the body. C-Flav provides 400 mg vitamin C, 100 mg acerola extract, 70 mg quercetin, 50 mg hesperidin, 50 mg hibiscus and 50 mg rutin in an easy-totake capsule form.
This product contains a formula that combines vitamin C with various bioflavonoids to mirror the way vitamin C is found in nature. Bioflavanoids are a group of plant pigments that provide the colors of many fruits and flowers. Bioflavonoid intake is associated with cardiovascular health and microbial balance. Created from multiple sources rich in vitamin C, C-Flav provides antioxidant protection, enhances immune function and provides support for healthy collagen synthesis and connective tissue. It also supports normal levels of inflammation throughout the body.
While true vitamin C deficiency is rare, functional deficiency is common. During periods of stress, the adrenal glands utilize large amounts of vitamin C. Low dietary fruit and vegetable consumption can also lead to a functional deficiency. Signs of functional deficiency include dry and splitting hair, bleeding gums, dry or scaly skin and easy bruising. Those taking NSAIDS, aluminum-based antacids, oral contraceptives, barbiturates, tetracycline and Coumadin are more susceptible to depletion of vitamin C.
