Vitamin C a water-soluble vitamin necessary for normal growth and development. Because it is water-soluble, the body is unable to store this essential vitamin, so it must be consumed daily. Vitamin C is an anti-oxidant that can help fight free radicals, increase the absorption of iron, and helps to produce collagen. Vitamin C boosts your immune system and increases white blood cell production as well. It even aids the repairing and maintaining healthy cartilage, bones and teeth.

Dr. William Saccoman led our Nutritional Advisory Board for many years and he worked closely with Nobel Prize recipient Linus Pauling who is known as the "Father of Vitamin C". Pauling's research shows that Vitamin C is a powerful defense support for the body.
