Vitamin C is an indispensable nutrient for maintaining optimum health. It has vital functions in the human body including supporting various aspects of cellular metabolism. Humans, unlike most animals, are unable to synthesize vitamin C endogenously, which makes it an essential dietary component.

Vitamin C is regarded as a key molecule for cellular metabolism. It participates in many vital body processes including:

  • Production of collagen, the main protein that makes up the connective tissue, skin, blood vessels, bones, cartilage and tendons.
  • Formation of a strong extracellular matrixwhich is the “glue” that binds the body’s cells together.
  • Protection against oxidative damage. Vitamin C is one of the most important antioxidants and is also involved in the biological recycling of vitamin E, glutathione, and other cell protective molecules.
  • Neutralization of toxins and other harmful substances in the body.
  • Mitochondrial bioenergy metabolism.
  • Supporting proper function of the immune system.
  • Breakdown of cholesterol into bile acids.
  • Synthesis of carnitine, the molecule that carries fatty acids into the mitochondria where they can be oxidized to yield energy.
  • Optimization of functions of the cardiovascular, immune, nervous and most other systems in the body.

Dr. Rath’s VitaCforte is also a good source of magnesium providing 38% of its RDA (recommended daily allowance) in one serving.

Magnesium is an essential mineral and a cofactor in more than 300 enzyme systems that regulate diverse biochemical reactions in the body. Its wide spectrum of health benefits includes:

  • normalizing blood pressure
  • keeping healthy blood glucose levels
  • assisting in bioenergy production for better stamina
  • maintaining normal muscle tension and nerve function
  • improving relaxation and sleep
  • supporting optimum glutathione synthesis - important for effective antioxidant protection
  • maintaining healthy cell growth through its role in the synthesis of DNA, RNA, proteins and many other cellular functions

Key synergy nutrients:

Magnesium ascorbate and calcium ascorbate are mineral forms of vitamin C. In addition to the benefits of vitamin C these forms provide essential minerals required for healthy cell metabolism. Also, mineral ascorbates are less acidic which makes them easier on the stomach.

Ascorbyl palmitate is a fat-soluble form of vitamin C, especially effective in protecting biological membranes and other lipid-rich cellular components from oxidative damage.

Citrus fruit peel bioflavonoids such as hesperidin, naringin, narirutin and others have a protective effect on vitamin C and help in its absorption.
