Vitamin C does more than boost immunity - it makes EVERYTHING better! Check out the benefits…

1. Collagen Production: Vitamin C helps us produce collagen, the component that makes healthy fibrous tissue (such as muscles, bones, and skin). Collagen is widely marketed as a product to prolong the youthful appearance of skin, but it affects so much more than the way we look! Collagen affects everything from the gut to the eyes and keeps all our fibrous tissue strong and healthy.

2. Protects Cells from Free-Radical Damage: Vitamin C is an antioxidant, and can regenerate antioxidants in the body. This protects from oxidation and stress that cause premature aging and disease. Studies are showing that high doses of intravenously administered Vitamin C can inhibit tumor growth - more research is needed, but in terms of prevention, we're motivated to up our intake!

3. Vitamin C can also protect against heart disease, hypertension, and high blood pressure. It promotes iron absorption, weight management, and protects the eyes from cataracts and macular degeneration.  Vitamin C is easy to love! Many of our favorite blends and spices are rich in Vitamin C.
