BioC Plus Vitamin C offers a gentle form of vitamin C as calcium ascorbate to help support immune function and overall health without upsetting digestion. Vitamin C is essential for healthy skin, connective tissue, bones, gums, and teeth, and for immune function. Regular vitamin C as ascorbic acid can be hard on the digestive system, leading to gastrointestinal problems such as abdominal pain, diarrhea, or heartburn.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning that it is not stored in the body and must be obtained daily through the diet or from supplemental sources. Vitamin C is perhaps best known for supporting immune system function. It is the body’s primary antioxidant and can help regenerate other antioxidants, including vitamin E, to further enhance antioxidant capacity. Vitamin C also protects lipids, including LDL cholesterol, from oxidation and facilitates non-heme iron absorption to support red blood cell formation. In addition, vitamin C is required for the production of collagen, the body’s main connective tissue, giving it an important role in wound healing.
