Overview
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) was first discovered in the 18th century by sailors who realized that they could avoid scurvy by sucking on lemons and limes. It was first isolated in 1928 by scientist Albert Szent-Gyorgyi. Humans are one of the few species (apes and guinea pigs are the others) that cannot manufacture Vitamin C, and therefore must obtain it from their diet and/or nutritional supplements. It is water-soluble and stored throughout the body with the highest concentrations in the adrenal glands. Vitamin C has many health benefits, but it is probably best known as a cell protector, a powerful antioxidant, and for supporting healthy immune function. It is a highly versatile health-enhancing nutrient that is active throughout the body. There is a large body of scientific evidence that supports the validity of the health claims attributed to Vitamin C. In a study conducted on 168 volunteers, it was concluded that moderately high doses can lessen the severity and duration of the common cold by supporting healthy immune function. Additional studies concluded that Vitamin C might be helpful for persons that have allergies and respiratory problems. Vitamin C has also been studied for its benefits on cardiovascular health. Countless other studies have been conducted on Vitamin C exploring numerous different applications and uses.

Our Vitamin C is derived from corn. This high potency Sustained Release Vitamin C 1,000mg is designed to provide all the benefits of Vitamin C in a form that extends the release in the body. Since Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that is typically excreted quickly from the body, this form remains in the system longer thereby increasing the benefits.
