Solgar Vitamin C 1000mg 100 capsules supplement provides high strength vitamin C in a convenient vegetarian capsule.
Vitamin C is an antioxidant that is required for at least 300 metabolic functions and in supplements helps tissue growth and repair, adrenal gland function and healthy gums. Vitamin C supplements help speed up wound healing, prevent many bacterial and viral infections and boost the immune system to fight off coughs and colds. It reduces histamine production during an allergic attack and is crucial for the healthy growth of teeth, bones, ligaments and blood vessels.
Solgar 1000mg Vitamin C capsules may also boost the absorption of iron from the digestive tract by up to 30%, lower blood cholesterol levels and play a role in the production of neurotransmitters (chemical messengers) in the brain. Cigarette smoking wipes an estimated 25-35 mg vitamin C out of the body every day and so smokers may need increased doses.
Signs of vitamin C deficiency: Scurvy is the best-known vitamin C deficiency disease, but this condition is rare in Western societies; bleeding gums, persistent allergies and recurring infections would all suggest a need for more vitamin C in the diet or through supplementation.
