Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a white, crystalline, water-soluble substance found in citrus fruits. As an antioxidant, vitamin C eliminates free radicals from your body and protects tissues from oxidative stress. Vitamin C also promotes the absorption of iron, while preventing its oxidation. Vitamin C is a vital cofactor to the formation of collagen, the connective tissue that supports arterial walls, skin, bones, and teeth. One of its major activities for supporting immune is boosting glutathione levels in human lymphocytes that make up about 25% of all white cells in the blood.

The highest levels of vitamin C in your body can be found in the adrenal glands. During stress, it is required in higher quantities. An increased intake in vitamin C is also necessary when your body is exposed to stress caused by heavy meals, smoking, immune impairment, extreme temperatures and chronic use of medications, such as aspirin. Because humans do not produce vitamin C internally, it must be obtained through dietary sources or supplements. This vitamin is, however, water-soluble and it is quickly laminated from your body, limiting its efficacy.
Fortunately, a flavonoid antioxidant known as dihydroquercetin is the solution. Studies demonstrate that dihydroquercetin helps to maintain its concentration and recycle vitamin C throughout the body. Vitamin C with Dihydroquercetin was formulated for those seeking to obtain optimal efficacy and antioxidant protection from a vitamin C supplement.
