Vitamin C with Dihydroquercetin from Life Extension was formulated for those seeking to obtain optimal efficacy and antioxidant protection from a vitamin C supplement.
Vitamin C, ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits and green vegetables. An important antioxidant, vitamin C protects the body from free radicals and fights oxidative stress, both of which threaten the immune system. In fact, a major immune-supporting activity of vitamin C is boosting glutathione levels in human lympho-cytes, cells that make up about 25% of all white blood cells in the blood.
Because humans do not manufacture vitamin C internally, it must be obtained through dietary sources or supplements. Few people realize, however, that vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient that is quickly oxidized and excreted by the body, which limits its efficacy. Until now, those seeking to capture vitamin C’s optimal health benefits have had no choice but to consume it several times throughout the day.
Fortunately, a flavonoid antioxidant known as dihydroquercetin functions as a vitamin C “supercharger.” Studies demonstrate that dihydroquercetin acts to inhibit the oxidation of vitamin C, thereby helping to maintain its concentration and recycle vitamin C throughout the body.*
