Product Description - Rich Distributing Vitamin C Plus Minerals 500mg Capsules
As most people know, vitamin C is a very important and necessary component of daily living. Vitamin C is active in more functions of more organs in the body than any other. It is an essential maintenance and "booster" vitamin of the immune system. It is also used in the metabolism of the amino acid tyrosine. Chronic bleeding and bruising have been linked to insufficient vitamin C, and everyone knows that scurvy is caused by the same.
Vitamin C deficiencies can be result from many different things including the use of ACTH in the treatment of arthritis. Sulfa drugs also increase urinary depletion of the vitamin. Antibiotics may also lead to low levels of vitamin C. The biggest cause of depletion of vitamin C may, however, be from smoking. Studies have shown that smoking can deplete vitamin C (ascorbic acid) levels by as much as 30%.
When the body utilizes vitamin C, it also consumes minerals necessary in the process. This product supplies needed minerals along with vitamin C so your body will get everything it needs in just one product.
