What is Swanson Ultra Ultimate Vitamin C Formula?
Vitamin C holds, for most of us, a cherished place in our hearts. As the first vitamin to really gain public attention and popularity, we were reliably informed as children that Vitamin C is the first line of defence against just about any illness imaginable.
We are taught that this great panacea holds the key to staying the effects of any number of ailments; coughs, colds, the flu even. And while Vitamin C certainly is a great antioxidant, it also benefits us in more practical ways too.
In the 1970s, Nobel prize winning scientist Linus Pauling created a revolution in how we treat our diets. His understanding of Vitamin C meant that the potent nutrient could reach untold numbers of people as arguably the most recognised dietary supplement on earth. And while for many of us that creates a sense of reassurance, it is worth mentioning that not all Vitamin C supplements are created the same.
Like any water soluble nutrient, Vitamin C suffers from two problems. Retention and absorbability. Water soluble nutrients cannot be stored in the body, which is why when we consume them we’ve got them, but when they’re not in our diet, they’re not in our body either. Swanson Ultra Ultimate Vitamin C Formula looks to solve both those problems by binding Vitamin C (as ascorbic acid) with Chromium Ascorbate and Zinc Ascorbate, and in doing so heighten both the solubility and efficacy of the supplement overall.
What is Swanson Ultra Ultimate Vitamin C Formula used for?
It seems the best way to understand how Swanson Ultra Ultimate Vitamin C Formula benefits us is to understand how the nutrient Vitamin C itself works. Arguably nature’s foremost antioxidant, Vitamin C is known to contribute to superior heart health, to help fight the effects of DNA damage (as ageing) and also as a great way to protect your arterial system too.
- Vitamin C at its most potent and absorbable
- 500mg of Vitamin C as ascorbic acid in every capsule
- Combined with natural bioflavonoids to enhance absorption and availability
We know we get lots of it from oranges, broccoli, sweet potatoes, kiwis and strawberries so why do we need to supplement with it?
What we know about Vitamin C is that in order for it to be properly absorbed by the cells in the body which need it the most, it must be complemented by certain other nutrients. By observing that interaction in nature, we are able to better understand proper Vitamin C absorption. For example, we know that that Vitamin C co-exists with certain bioflavonoids, so we know that if we support the nutrient accordingly, we are able to increase its bioavailability.
Swanson Ultra Ultimate Vitamin C Formula is 100mg of pure, natural bioflavonoids from oranges which has been combined with another bioflavonoid, quercetin to allow it to work synergistically with ascorbic acid and benefit your health better, for longer.
