Active Ingredients: Vitamin C (as Pureway-C®), L-Lysine HCl.
Suggested Use: As a dietary supplement, take 2 capsules per day with food. Or use as directed by your healthcare professional.
Caution: People who have a high risk of kidney disease or disorders of iron metabolism (iron overload) should avoid large doses of vitamin C and consult your doctor or nutritionist prior to taking supplementation.
Pureway-C® is clinically shown to outperform other leading forms of Vitamin C by offering better immune protection, better free radical scavenging, and better antioxidant support.*
Research studies in vitro and in humans show that Pureway-C® is more rapidly absorbed and more highly retained in the human cells resulting in faster, more beneficial effects than other ascorbate brands.*
Pureway-C® has a unique composition that combines ascorbic acid with several types of lipid metabolites and bioflavonoids to enhance bioavailability.
Lipid metabolites (fats derived from vegetable sources), function as carriers of the ascorbic acid to increase intestinal absorption, allowing Vitamin C to enter the cells quickly for enhanced cellular uptake.
Bioflavonoids greatly contribute to the antioxidant capability of Pureway-C® as well as enhanced absorption in the intestinal tract.
Lysine, or L-Lysine, is an essential amino acid, which means that it is necessary for human health but cannot be made by the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Lysine is important for proper growth, and it plays an essential role in the production of carnitine; a nutrient responsible for converting fatty acids into energy and helping to lower cholesterol. Lysine appears to help the body absorb and conserve calcium, and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen.*
Lysine supports a healthy immune system response. Taking lysine supplements can support recovery time and reduce the chance of recurrent health challenges. Lysine also plays a role in supporting arterial health. Lysine is one component of a protocol proposed by Linus Pauling to promote optimal heart and immune health.*
Unlike most mammals who produce their own Vitamin C in very high amounts (and even more under stress), humans do not have the ability to manufacture their own Vitamin C. Interestingly, we have 3 out of the 4 enzymes needed to make Vitamin C, but the 4th enzyme is turned off — the gene that made the 4th enzyme mutated and is no longer expressed in humans. Therefore, we must obtain Vitamin C through our diet and/or a Vitamin C supplement in order to support proper health.
According to the National Institutes of Health, too little Vitamin C can lead to serious health challenges. Low Vitamin C levels can affect several body parts and systems, including:
No. The RDA is the minimum required to avoid scurvy, not the maximum needed for good health. As in all cases, "deficiency" is not something that's digital – meaning you either have it or you don't – it's a matter of degrees. Researchers are proving the many ways in which "sub-clinical scurvy" (meaning you are deficient but not immediately about to die) is significantly detrimental to health and makes the body vulnerable to various kinds of damage.*
