Product Description

Active-C Is Your Choice For A Potent, Buffered Source of Vitamin C

Active-C is buffered with important minerals which eliminate potential irritations of the gut allowing you to take a considerably higher dose than non-buffered Vitamin C formulations. Many people also suffer with a very low pH of the body and Active-C will assist in balancing that excess acidity.

Active-C is created using a "nitrogen blanket," which is simply a room that only contains nitrogen and ZERO oxygen. This process is used to eliminate oxidation of the vitamin. Oxidation is the process of breakdown that is easily noted if you open a banana or bite an apple and leave it on the counter for a couple of hours. The fruit will begin to darken (beginning of decay) due to the oxygen in the air and this same scenario will happen to vitamin C if oxygen is present.

When Vitamin C is made in a room with oxygen (a normal room), the Vitamin C begins to break down during production as well as when the bottle is in the storage facility, during shipment and while on the retail shelf. By the time you open the bottle, the Vitamin C is already in an advanced stage of oxidation making it less potent and therefore less effective. Active-C is not exposed to any oxygen until you open the bottle. This locks in the potency providing quicker results with a lower dosage.

The scientific literature has confirmed vitamin C’s key role in many functions of the body. A deficiency can cause potential symptoms in the following systems of the body:

1) immune system*
2) collagen repair*
3) joint function*
4) energy production*
5) antioxidant protection*
6) detoxification*

Active-C also enhances hormone production and function as needed, helping the body to adapt better.

Great for reducing cold and flu symptoms Review by Laura
Quality
Value
I take Active C every time I start to feel a cold or flu coming on and it reduces the severity and length of my symptoms dramatically! I am able to recover so much more quickly from getting sick or in most cases I don't end up actually getting full blown sick thanks to Active C. I always have some on hand just in case!
