What could be better than combining your daily dose of Vitamin C with Rose Hips? A plant so brimming with bioflavonoids that it maximises the nutrient's bioavailability by untold amounts. Keep those nasty colds and viruses away with this, your comprehensive Vitamin C package.
It's an age old question (usually posed by absent mothers across the telephone) - are you getting enough Vitamin C? Most of us like to think that we eat a healthy amount of oranges, broccoli and tomatoes to ensure our supply is kept well stocked but what a lot of us don't realise is that it can be a constant battle to keep us in the black (or 'orange' if you prefer?)
The main reason we face an uphill struggle to keep our body's supply of this indispensable antioxidant is that unlike most other essential vitamins (excluding all of the B Vitamins), Vitamin C is water soluble. That means that unlike its fat soluble friends, it cannot be stored in the body. It travels with every other waste product through and eventually out of our body. If we can't use it, we ditch it.
The result of this is that if our diets aren't regularly supplemented with Vitamin C, we simply excrete it and start to miss out on all its benefits. That's where Swanson Vitamin C with Rose Hips comes in. By adding Rose Hips to the formula, not only do we see a rise in the Vitamin C content - Rose Hips contain around 60x as much Vitamin C as an orange - but we also witness an increase in the bioavailability of those nutrients to our bodies.
Swanson Vitamin C with Rose Hips contains around 500 mg per serving. That is the amount recommended by several leading researchers to help keep away common colds and viruses.
What is it that is essentially responsible for keeping away those nasty bugs? Antioxidants of course. Because Vitamin C is, by its very nature, an antioxidant, we are already off to a great start. Because Swanson Vitamin C with Rose Hips contains bioflavonoids (a form of plant based antioxidant), it packs a double punch of antioxidants. The results are conclusive.
