Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system. Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint health. Vitamin C is needed for animo acid metabolism, hormone synthesis, and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. It is also a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body's cells and molecules from damage by free racials and reactive oxygen molecules generated during normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors. NOW® C-500 Complex is a blend of Acerola and Rose Hips (natural sources of Vitamin C) plus Citrus Bioflavonoids and Rutin which work synergistically to supoort Vitamin C utilization.*

From the FDA's website: "Some scientific evidence suggests that consumption of antioxidant vitamins may reduce the risk of certain forms of cancer. However, FDA has determined that this evidence is limited and not conclusive."


Suggested Usage

As a dietary supplement, take 1 tablet 1 to 3 times daily.
