Vitamin C – we can't live without it!

There are three important reasons why we need to get Vitamin C – and get it every day.

First, Vitamin C is critical for many different and normal processes of the body, including for every cell. Studies show Vitamin C helps our bodies with everything from promoting heart health, strengthening the immune system and helping with repair of injuries to maintaining healthy joints, supporting vision, making collagen, and much more.

Second, in today’s society, our bodies are under greater strain and pressure than ever. For example, there are more daily stressors of the mental, emotional and physical kind. Plus there are more toxins in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the foods we eat and even the things we touch or come in contact with. All of this means our bodies have to work harder, just to stay even. As a result, high levels of Vitamin C are often necessary to help shore up the body’s defense systems and help eliminate harmful toxins, which can lead to illness.

And third, unlike the bodies of dogs, cats and other mammals that make their own Vitamin C internally, the bodies of humans cannot. That’s why we have to get this very crucial nutrient from outside of our selves.

For all these reasons, two-time Nobel Prize laureate Dr. Linus Pauling considered Vitamin C absolutely vital to good health. So much so that he wrote extensively about its vital importance in his book on living longer. And Dr. Alfred Libby, who was a long-time associate of Dr. Pauling, created a special crystallized form Vitamin C for TriVita. His form of Vitamin C maximized absorption and effectiveness.

We need to get Vitamin C – each day -- from outside sources
Although Vitamin C is so essential, the body cannot manufacture it. Nor can the body store it. In fact, excess Vitamin C is flushed out by the body as a normal process. This means two things: The human body must get this vitamin from outside sources, and it must get a new supply every day.

We can even benefit from taking Vitamin C more than once a day. That’s because, by evening, our bodies’ supplies of it are often running low. This can potentially contribute to serious health problems. According to research, many heart attacks happen during the early morning hours when Vitamin C levels are at their lowest.

One way to get Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is through diet, from fresh fruits and vegetables. But the problem here is that most of us cannot achieve the optimum levels of Vitamin C needed for good health by diet alone. Instead, to achieve our optimum level of wellness, most of us need to take Vitamin C in the form of supplements every day.

Plus, in addition to daily use, you can also periodically use The Vital C Flush to help detoxify your lymphatic system and help boost your immune system.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between Vital C tablets and powder?

Both products use Alfred Libby's original formulation. The difference is in the form, serving size and method of consumption.

  1. Form – One is powder, the other tablets.
  2. Serving size – Each Vital C tablet gives you a fixed serving size of 1000 mg of Vitamin C. In contrast, the powder has a single serving size of 4000 mg of Vitamin C, but you can easily take a half or quarter portion (and thereby get 2000 or 1000 mg of Vitamin C, respectively).
  3. Method of consumption – Tablets are swallowed; the powder can be mixed with the drink of your choice.

Q: What are the benefits of Vitamin C?

Our bodies need Vitamin C to protect our health and help our immune system do its job.1 This workhorse vitamin:

  • Helps us grow and repair tissue in all parts of the body
  • Forms collagen, a protein in skin, ligaments and blood vessels
  • Helps repair and maintain cartilage, bones and teeth2

Because Vitamin C is an antioxidant, it helps block some of the damage caused by "free radicals." These unstable molecules are formed by normal body processes, like digesting food, and also by tobacco smoke or radiation. The buildup of free radicals over time is largely responsible for the aging process.2

Our bodies can't make Vitamin C, or even store it up. So it's vital to get all we need by eating lots of fruits and vegetables, and by taking supplements.1,2
