Healthy Skin, Immune System and Antioxidant Protection
Live-well Time-C 500 with Rose Hips contains vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, a water-soluble vitamin found in citrus fruits and green vegetables. The human body does not manufacture its own vitamin C, so it must be derived from our diet.
Vitamin C is important for healthy bones, teeth, gums, teeth as well as general make-up of the body. As an antioxidant, vitamin C scavenges free radicals in the body and protects tissues from oxidative stress. Vitamin C also supports your body’s natural defences as it is involved in the function of white blood cells and antibodies. Therefore, it is beneficial when dealing with illness.
Vitamin C is a vital co-factor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth.
Live-well Time C-500 with Rose Hip has been specially formulated to provide a prolonged rate of absorption by releasing nutrients slowly, ensuring that vitamin C is available whenever your body needs it. Rose hip is a natural plant flavonoid that works synergistically with vitamin C to help the body absorb and utilize vitamin C.
