Liqui-C Complete 16 oz (473 ml). Vitamin C with essential co-factors for superior absorption. Antioxidant, neurotransmitter and immune support formula.Vitamin C is essential for the production of proteins, collagen and elastin, which strengthen arteries, bones, teeth, cartilage, and other tissues. It helps the body absorb iron, helps the body deal with stress, lowers blood pressure and blood cholesterol, and reduces the effects of some allergy- producing substances. Unlike most animals, human beings are unable to manufacture their own Vitamin C. Animals that make their own Vitamin C are able to increase production in response to stress, infection, and exposure to toxins. Diet alone may not provide adequate amounts of Vitamin C, especially in times of stress or illness. High levels of oxidative stress are associated with autism as well as many other autoimmune and chronic diseases. Vitamin C is highly effective at reducing oxidative stress and raising glutathione levels, which helps the body to detoxify. Bioflavonoids such as Quercetin work together synergistically with Vitamin C. Quercetin is an even more powerful antioxidant than Vitamin C, and may also inhibit virus replication. Bioflavonoids greatly enhance Vitamin Cs bioavailability and effectiveness. Both Quercetin and Vitamin C help protect the brain, tissues, and genetic material from oxidative damage due to exposure to toxins. Increased plasma vitamin C has been correlated with lowered blood lead levels, although the mechanism for this is not well understood. Vitamin C also helps the body make neurepinephrine, an important neurotransmitter. Neurotransmitters affect mood, behavior, and brain function. In addition, Vitamin C is used in the synthesis of Carnitine, which is essential for transporting fat into the mitochondria, where it is converted to energy. Vitamin C also affects the glutaminergic system, used for signaling in the brain, and the brains response to the mood and stress hormone Dopamine. Supplemental Vitamin C has been associated in some studies with a reduction in stereotypical behaviors (stimming) in autistic children.Product Highlights:1) Powerful antioxidant, fights oxidative stress, inflammation, DNA damage.2) Can help raise glutathione and support natural detoxification. 3) Supports carnitine, neurotransmitters , mitochondrial function.4) May inhibit virus replication and protect against viruses.5) Quercetin Bioflavonoids for optimal effectiveness and extra antioxidant support.6) Delicious, easy to take.
