Unicity Bio-C 60 Tablets #0954 Bio-C For daily antioxidant protection, Bio-C provides four select forms of high-potency vitamin C, along with bioflavonoids to promote absorption.
The human body does not produce vitamin C, so all of this important nutrient's requirements must be obtained through our diets, which are frequently deficient in vitamins. Lifestyle factors such as smoking, environmental pollutants and food-processing techniques can impact the level of vitamin C in your body. In addition, vitamin C is not stored in the body, so it must be replaced daily.
Vitamin C benefits many systems in our bodies, particularly the cardiovascular system. It is integral to the production of collagen molecules that provide the stability necessary for proper cardiovascular function. Bio-C provides a balance of high-potency vitamin C formulated with four select forms of this important antioxidant nutrient plus bioflavonoids to promote absorption.
Formulated to assure disintegration and dissolution to meet and exceed all standards, Bio-C does not contain sugar, starch, salt or preservatives.
Vitamin C is widely touted for benefiting the immune system, but it also offers significant benefits for cardiovascular function.
First, it aids in the production of collagen and elastin, which are the reinforcement rods of the body. Current clinical evidence suggests that the lack of adequate amounts of vitamin C over a period of years results in a breakdown of the collagen and elastin structure of the blood vessel walls. This breakdown leads to tiny, microscopic cracks or fissures in the walls. Cholesterol globules, surrounded by sticky lipoprotein a molecules, lodge in these cracks forming a sort of natural "plaster cast" to prevent blood leakage. This natural repair system eventually overshoots and the buildup of atherosclerotic deposits results. These fat deposits in the arteries of the heart can cause heart attacks and strokes.
