C (Buffered) 100 tablets - calcium ascorbate + citrus bioflavonoids | Jarrow Formulas
Jarrow Formulas Vitamin C (Buffered) is a basic antioxidant that is needed for normal blood clotting and is essential in the synthesis of collagen, necessary for healthy connective tissue, gums, teeth and bones.
Vitamin C also improves the functioning of the GABA-receptor. GABA is a neurotransmitter that plays a role in relaxation and rest, so indirectly vitamin C also functions as a mood lifter.
Bioflavonoids are potent polyphenol antioxidants that protect the body from free radical damage. Citrus bioflavonoids and their metabolites may contribute to cardiovascular health by minimizing free radical damage and promoting capillary integrity.
Buffered vitamin C is just as effective as the more expensive esterified ester-C vitamin
Some supplements are suitable for both men and women of all ages as well as children. But other supplements are specifically targeted to the aging woman or man. Another supplement is especially suitable for athletes, regardless of gender.

What are free radicals?The body is under constant attack from oxidative stress. Oxygen in the body splits into single atoms with unpaired electrons. Electrons like to be in pairs, so these atoms, called free radicals, scavenge the body to seek out other electrons so they can become a pair. This causes damage to cells, proteins and DNA.
Free radicals are associated with human disease, including cancer, atherosclerosis, Alzheimer's disease, Parkinson's disease and many others. They also may have a link to aging, which has been defined as a gradual accumulation of free-radical damage.
Substances that generate free radicals can be found in the food we eat, the medicines we take, the air we breathe and the water we drink. These substances include fried foods, alcohol, tobacco smoke, pesticides and air pollutants.
Free radicals are the natural byproducts of chemical processes, such as metabolism. Free radicals can be seen as as waste products from various chemical reactions in the cell that when built up, harm the cells of the body.
Yet, free radicals are essential to life. The body's ability to turn air and food into chemical energy depends on a chain reaction of free radicals. Free radicals are also a crucial part of the immune system, floating through the veins and attacking foreign invaders.
Why do we get the flu in winter?Being cold doesn’t literally make you catch a cold, but it certainly seems likely how the coldest season is, as a matter of fact, the 'cold' season. Why is there a substantial increase in common colds and flus as soon as it gets cold outside?
The flu really does thrive in winterThere’s no doubt that the flu virus somehow thrives in the cold.
As it turns out, the virus is basically designed to jump from person to person when the air is cold and dry. Studies have shown that transmission rates are highest when temperature and humidity are both low. Because cold air naturally holds less water, low humidity levels are typical for winter.
Even when we make our homes comfortably warm, the air stays just as dry unless we use a humidifier.
But why do viruses thrive in cold air?Cold air may help the flu virus survive longer outside of a human host, making it easier to linger after a cough or sneeze. And apparently the virus does a better job of circulating in low humidity.
An infected individual exhales virus encased in tiny water droplets, and those droplets evaporate more quickly if the air is dry. If the flu droplet shrinks fast enough, it can become so light that it circulates around in the air instead of falling to the ground.
Doctor Pauling, why was he so famous? Vitamin C and its role as an anti-aging anti-oxidantOne of the most famous forerunners of high dose vitamin C treatment for disease prevention was Dr. Linus Pauling, a biochemist and peace activist, and a two-time Nobel Laureate.
A large, decade-long study found that men who took 800 mg of vitamin C per day had less heart disease and lived up to six years longer than those following the conventional guideline of 60 mg/day
Vitamin C, when administered intravenously at high doses, has been shown to be selectively cytotoxic against cancer cells.
Vitamin C is one of the most well-established traditional antioxidants we know of, and its potent health benefits have been clearly demonstrated over time, especially for the prevention and treatment of infectious diseases.
While most animals have the ability to produce vitamin C internally, three species cannot. Guinea pigs, primates, and humans must obtain their vitamin C from their diet.
Vitamin C has numerous functions in the human body, including acting as an essential cofactor in enzymatic reactions.
In this way, it plays a role in your body's production of collagen, carnitine and catecholamines.
Vitamin C is also used by your body for wound healing, repairing, and maintaining the health of your bones and teeth, and plays a role in helping your body absorb iron.
A powerful antioxidant, vitamin C also helps prevent damage caused by free radicals. Over time, free radical damage may accelerate aging and contribute to the development of heart disease and other health conditions.
It's through this antioxidant effect that it's thought vitamin C may play a role in protecting heart health.
Fluoride, should you avoid it?A year ago, the Dutch Supreme Court of Justice ruled taxation of fluroided tooth paste should be lowered from the higher tariff meant for luxury gooods such as beauty items to the low tariff that is used for medication and nutritional supplements and meds as fluorided tooth paste can be considered as medicine.
This resulted in quite a big price gap between fluorided tooth paste and non-fluorided tooth paste.
However, since the effectiveness of fluoride has been up to debate it was felt to be an unjust difference by quite a few people who even say fluoride is poisonous. Is fluoride really poisonous? We thought you'd be just as curious about the answer as we are.
Occurence and prevention of goutGout is a painful condition considered a complex form of arthritis that is caused when too much uric acid builds up in the body. High levels of uric acid causes the formation of crystals in the joints, creating intense pain and inflammation. The body produces uric acid as it breaks down purines, which are commonly found in meats, seafood, legumes, alcohol, fructose, yeast and some vegetables.
