Nutra-C® Chelated Vitamin C Powder
BENEFITS OF NUTRA-C®
INCREASED ABSORPTION AND BIOAVAILABILITY
The naturally occurring Vitamin C metabolites, specifically calcium and magnesium salts of threonic acid, activate the Vitamin C molecules, making it easier for the body to transport them from cell to cell and increasing the overall Vitamin C intake. Several hours after consumption of Nutra C®, the Vitamin C level in the blood is much higher
compared with taking regular ascorbic acid.
Following consumption of Nutra C®, the loss of vitamin C via urine is lower compared with taking ordinary Vitamin C.
GENTLE ON THE STOMACH
Unlike regular ascorbic acid which has a pH between 2 and 3, Nutra-C® has a pH level between 7 and 9, which means it is non-acidic and does not cause any digestive problems, even when taken in large amounts. Thus, it is ideal for individuals who typically cannot consume regular ascorbic acid because of its high acidity.
Nutra C® acts as a potent antioxidant that may help remove damaging free radicals. Additionally, it may supports immune system cells that fight microbial infection and may enhance the immune system.
Nutra C® is chelated as Calcium Ascorbate and Magnesium Ascorbate, resulting in approximately 9% Calcium and 1% Magnesium. Calcium helps build healthy bones and teeth, and is essential for reducing the risk for osteoporosis. Magnesium helps with calcium uptake by stimulating a hormone called calcitonin to draw calcium out of the blood and back into the bones.
