PUREWAY-C™ FOR YOUR DEFENCES
Vitamin C, also known as L-ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin found naturally in some foods, added to others, and available as a dietary supplement. It is a nutrient the body needs to form blood vessels, cartilage, muscles and bone collagen. It is critical to the body's healing process and is an antioxidant that helps protect cells from the effects of free radicals.
Vitamin C has a high solubility in water. Because of this, absorption from the intestinal lumen and entry into cells is limited, and most of it is eliminated through the urine.
PureWay-C™ is an advanced form of vitamin C with greater capacity for absorption and uptake than all other forms. Due to the lipid metabolite technology of vitamin C, it becomes more fat-soluble. Thus its capacity and absorption rate at the intestinal level is increased.
It has a higher absorption and assimilation rate than all forms of vitamin C. Lipid metabolites of vitamin C are found to be 36% more bioavailable than Ester-C, 133% higher than standard vitamin C, and 91% higher than ascorbate.
PureWay-C™ also contains bioflavonoids from citrus in its formulation that protect vitamin C from oxidation, further support the immune system, and play a role in wound healing.
