Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is contained in a variety of fruits and vegetables (citrus fruits, tomatoes, peppers, cabbage, berries, etc.). Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that protects against free radical damage causing inflammation. Vitamin C is necessary for optimal immune health, aids in ridding the body of toxins, is essential for wound healing and repair of body tissues and iron absorption, and is beneficial in maintaining strong bones and teeth. It is also essential to maintaining healthy skin as we age. Vitamin C is not stored in the body, so it must be consumed daily.
Quercetin is a flavonoid found in several plants and foods, i.e., berries, red wine, and green tea. Quercetin acts as an antioxidant, has antiviral properties, and contains anti-inflammatory properties that aid in the reduction of swelling, the stabilization of blood sugar, and support heart health.
While eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables is the best way (the BALi® way) to get your daily dose of Vitamin C, there are a number of reasons you may consider this supplement:
- You cannot or don’t want to eat fruits and vegetables rich in Vitamin C;
- The challenges of your busy lifestyle leave you feeling as if you have significant gaps in your diet;
- You are dealing with stress;
- You are overweight;
- You are a smoker or use other nicotine products.
While the list is not all-inclusive of the reasons you may benefit from supplementation, all of the above contribute to a deficiency of Vitamin C.
