Our vitamin C 500 is a patented buffered vitamin C designed to help prevent the potential stomach upset sometimes associated with high vitamin C intake. It helps support healthy immune function and is a good source of antioxidants provided by vitamin C. Scientific research suggests this particular vitamin C may boost Natural Killer cell activity due to its improved uptake of the vitamin by white blood cells, when compared to regular ascorbic acid.
I include vitamin C in my daily regimen, but have increased my dose recently to give my immune system an added boost.
Vitamin C has many properties, but in addition to being anti-viral, it’s beneficial for lung health. In a study performed on patients hospitalized for respiratory disease, they saw an 80% decreased death rate among those receiving a rather small dose of vitamin C, 200 mg.
The dose I recommend for daily maintenance is at least 1 gram (1,000 mg) per day, but at this time I would recommend gauging what your body actually needs based on the bowel tolerance test mentioned above. Don’t be surprised if you require several grams.
Super-C is our absolute favorite Vitamin C, researched to boost your natural killed (NK) cells, your immune defense army. This particular product has long been a part of our nutritional arsenal here at Root Cause, so I feel very confident recommending it to you.
