Whenever you develop the sniffles or begin coughing a lot‚ you may reach for a cough drop or over-the-counter medication that contains vitamin C. This is because vitamin C is not only a rich source of antioxidants‚ but also helps the body fight off bacterial infections by boosting the immune system. Vitamin C is commonly found in citrus fruits like oranges‚ tomatoes‚ strawberries and fortified cereals.
It can be difficult to consume an adequate amount of the nutrient on a daily basis‚ especially if you have an allergy. In these cases‚ you may have to take a supplement to get the amount of vitamin C your body needs.
Unfortunately‚ many supplements extract vitamin C from one of these dietary sources‚ which also puts you at risk of uncomfortable allergic reactions. Vitamin C-1000 Non-Corn Source by Ecological Formulas is specifically formulated for those who have extreme food sensitivities.
The vitamin C provided by each capsule is derived from purified ascorbic acid‚ which is easier to digest. The active ingredient is the water-soluble vitamin‚ which helps produce collagen‚ boost immunity‚ and potentially protect your cells from toxin damage.
Each bottle of Ecological Formulas’ Vitamin C-1000 Non-Corn Source contains 120 capsules‚ which should last for 40 days if taken at the recommended daily dosage of three capsules per day. Since 1981‚ Ecological Formulas/Cardiovascular Research has been formulating specialty supplements geared towards individuals with chemical sensitivities. Many of its products are also certified Kosher and/or independently lab tested.
