Vitamin C is considered a "staple" in any supplement routine. Its powerful antioxidant properties, ability to promote healthy skin, and support of the immune system, contribute greatly to overall health. In addition, the body's inability to store vitamin C makes it necessary to replenish on a daily basis. This product features a state-of-the-art Prolonged Release beadlet system. Each capsule is designed to release nutrients in a controlled pattern (over approximately 3-6 hours) to promote optimal assimilation.
