Thompson's Ultra C, an advanced form of Vitamin C, is easier to absorb ino the body, and gentler on the stomach than other Vitamin C complexes that use highly acidic ascorbic acid (pH 2.4).
Thompson's state-of-the-art, advanced Poly-ascorbate form has a clear advantage over ordinary Vitamin C. As well as better absorption, Ultra C supplies calcium, magnesium, potassium and zinc, minerals that are often excreted and lost when Vitamin C increases in the body.
Ultra C also provides the valuable cofactors Bioflavonoids, Rosehips and Zinc to further enhance the action of the complex.
Vitamin C's primary function is the manufacture of collagen, which is a crucial protein in the connective tissue, cartilage and tendons that hold the body together. So as well as a powerful immune booster, Vitamin C is useful for repairing wounds, preventing bruising and keeping gums healthy. Vitamin C also has a critical role in the manufacture of certain nerve transmitting substances and hormones, and the absorption and use of other nutritional factors.
Vitamin C affects immune function by enhancing white blood cell activity and increasing interferon levels and antibody responses. During times of chemical, emotional, physical or psychological stress, the urinary system excretes Vitamin C in significant amounts, thereby increasing the body’s need for this vitamin. Vitamin C is the first line antioxidant protection, making it one of our most important antioxidant nutrients.
