Vitamin C is an essential nutrient with a very praiseworthy reputation. Possessing powerful antioxidant properties that help protect cells and keep them healthy, vitamin C plays an important role in collagen production, as well. A traditional remedy for scurvy, vitamin C is also used for its ability to treat the common cold and maintain healthy connective tissues and organs -- including bones, blood vessels, and of course, the skin.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin. Our bodies cannot store it; therefore it is prudent to seek other forms of this vital vitamin. Most vitamin C supplements on the market today use a form of synthesized ascorbic acid, which is poorly absorbed by the body and may cause adverse health effects when taken regularly or in high doses.
Vitamin C-olway with Collagen is an all-natural, bioorganic form of vitamin C with potent absorption properties, allowing for superior assimilation by the body. The added benefits of biologically active fish-derived collagen in the formula enhance and maintain the structure and suppleness of the skin, and contribute to optimum joint health.
Vitamin C-olway receives a substantial boost of natural vitamin C from rose hip extract. Rose hips -- the diminutive berry-like fruit that appear on a rose plant after blossoming -- are abundant in vitamin C, touted as one of the highest plant sources available, and contain vitamins A and B, as well as the antioxidant lycopene.
Here are 4 practical reasons to try Vitamin C-olway: Our singular combination of Vitamin C, rose hips and collagen:
1. Reduces Wrinkles and Repairs Sun Damaged Skin
Premature wrinkling due to sun exposure can greatly benefit from a blend of vitamin C and rose hips. The healing properties of rose hips are known to soothe, moisturize and tone the skin. This formulation helps rejuvenate stressed skin and will reduce the signs of maturing skin. Collagen hydrate helps protect cells from oxidative stress-- one of the major causes of aging.
2. Prevents and Reduces the Symptoms of Arthritis
The pain of arthritis is caused by inflammation of the joints, triggered by the breakdown of connective tissue in the cartilage. This cartilage operates as a “cushion” between the bones in your joints. An insufficient amount of Vitamin C can put you at risk for developing arthritis. According to a 2011 study published in Complementary and Alternative Medicine the benefits of rose hips for arthritis sufferers may be linked to the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory effects of rose hip flavonoids and polyphenols. Galactolipid compounds found in rose hips, may help slow down cartilage breakdown in the joints. Collagen has also been proven to be beneficial in easing the pain and symptoms of arthritis by improving the integrity of connective tissue that support the joints.
3. Strengthens the Immune System
Due to their exceptionally high vitamin C content, rose hips are an excellent source to lean on when your immune system needs revitalizing. As well, many health experts recommend increasing your Vitamin C intake to shorten the life span and severity of the common cold and other viruses.
4. Increases Energy and Supports Emotional Health
Vitamin C contributes to the production of neurotransmitters like norepinephrine – which play a key role in your mood and mental health. When combined with collagen and rose hips, vitamin C assists in reducing fatigue and fueling energy levels.
