Uses For Buffered Ascorbic Acid
Various Physiological Support Properties: Vitamin C offers a wide range of support for the human body. It is a potent antioxidant and free radical scavenger supporting cellular and vascular health. Vitamin C has been reported to promote nitric oxide activity as well as to help maintain healthy platelet function. It supports the body’s defense system by enhancing white blood cell function and activity, and increasing interferon levels, antibody responses, and secretion of thymic hormones.
Furthermore, this antioxidant has histamine lowering properties and increases lymphocyte formation. It is also essential for the formation and maintenance of intercellular ground substance and collagen, important for joint health.
Vitamin C aids in the absorption of iron and the formation of red blood cells and converts folic acid to its active forms.*
