- Boosts Immune System Function
- Maintains Normal Inflammatory Balance
- Promotes Healthy Collagen Formation to Maintain Healthy Blood Vessels
- Supports Connective Tissues
NM-Vita C is a formula that combines vitamin C with various bioflavonoids to mirror the way vitamin C is found in nature. Created from multiple sources rich in vitamin C, NM-Vita C enhances immune function and provides support for healthy collagen synthesis and connective tissue. It also supports normal levels of inflammation throughout the body. NM-Vita C provides 400 mg vitamin C, 100 mg acerola extract, 70 mg quercetin, 50 mg hesperidin, 50 mg hibiscus and 50 mg rutin in an easy-to-take capsule form.
Vitamin C has long been recognized for its role in supporting the immune system, specifically T cells, which absorb and concentrate vitamin C. Supplementation with vitamin C has also been shown to support immune response to seasonal challenges by supporting natural killer cells, lymphocyte proliferation, chemotaxis and delayed-type hypersensitivity.
Vitamin C plays a key role in maintaining normal inflammatory balance. Supplementation with vitamin C has been shown to support microbial balance in the gastric mucosa by promoting an environment where healthy microflora can thrive, increase tissue antioxidant status and enhance the absorption of key nutrients.
While true deficiency in vitamin C is rare, evidence suggests that many people may have low levels of vitamin C, especially those under high amounts of stress and low dietary fruit and vegetable intake. Signs of deficiency include dry and splitting hair, bleeding gums, dry or scaly skin and easy bruising. Those taking NSAIDS, aluminum-based antacids, oral contraceptives, barbiturates, tetracycline and Coumadin are more susceptible to depletion of vitamin C.
Bioflavonoids are a group of plant pigments that provide the colors of many fruits and flowers. Flavonoid intake is associated with cardiovascular health and microbial balance. Bioflavonoids are used to support connective tissue and joint comfort as well as respiratory and eye health. Citrus bioflavonoids have also been shown to cross the blood-brain barrier, impart neuroprotective effects and promote healthy cell growth, detoxification enzymes, vasodilation and healthy platelet function. Quercetin, a flavonoid found in a variety of herbs, vegetables and fruits, is an antioxidant that inhibits inducible ICAM-1 expression, an important pathway for maintaining normal inflammatory balance. It has also been shown to support epithelial barrier function in the intestines to stabilize mast cells by releasing cytoprotective factors and to promote the balanced release of inflammatory mediators from mast cells. Rutin and hesperidin complex are strong antioxidants, which increase intracellular levels of vitamin C and offer similar benefits to quercetin.
