Nature C Plus (90 Vcaps)
Nature C Plus
Nature C Plus combines the benefits of buffered vitamin C (ascorbate) with other antioxidant to create a product that specifically enhances ascorbate absorption, especially via the important glucose transport pathways. This makes Nature C Plus uniquely beneficial to the many millions of people with insulin resistance, or poor insulin sensitivity, who are prone to have poor ascorabte status, as well as for everyone seeking to improve vitamin C uptake into the bloodstream and cells. Nature C Plus is a nature-identical formulation designed to provide a more advanced replacement for the popular types of vitamin C developed years ago.
In recent years much more has been learned about how vitamin C functions within the body, as well as which conditions provide the most optimal environment for its absorption and utilization. This product represents new standards for the efficacy of vitamin C and function-boosting co-factors.
One of the most significant findings involves the unique absorption abilities of threonic acid – a metabolite of ascorbic acid. An article published in the October 2007 Medical Science Monitor provided some of the most convincing evidence of the compound’s unique absorption abilities. A double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study concluded that threonic acid had two very beneficial characteristics. First, it was shown to increase the amount of vitamin C that is taken up by the immune system’s T-cells. Additionally, threonic acid was shown to increase vitamin C’s overall potency within the cells.
Based on these clinical studies and other scientific information, many loyal vitamin C users are now turning to threonic acid-containing formulas as a potent source of cellular protection. These findings, coupled with growing public interest in the potential of vitamin C metabolites, is what lead to this new C. Realizing that absorption and utilization of vitamin C were key benefits that had to be provided by any new formulation, a theory was developed suggesting that vitamin C could be transported via active glucose transport pathways. This theory was found to be valid, and it was determined that said transport mechanism could be enhanced through proper formulation.
Human cell laboratory work demonstrated the benefits of formulation over ascorbic acid and a United States patent was applied for, specifically for the purpose of recognizing the compound’s unique mechanism of action. The efficacy of the Nature C Plus is based on the unique combination of non-acidic vitamin C plus certain metabolites, notably threonic acid and alpha lipoic acid.
The known benefits of non-acidic vitamin C and metabolites are combined with substance that stimulate vitamin C transport into cells, enhancing absorption into both the bloodstream and immune cells, while stimulating utilization by immune cells. Additionally, because of the ability of Nature C Plus to enhance vitamin C absorption via glucose transport channels, it is an ideal and suitable source of vitamin C for diabetics and those with blood sugar imbalances; individuals who traditionally struggle when it comes to maintaining healthy vitamin C levels.
Studies have determined that alpha lipoic acid may enhance the body’s ability to better utilize vitamin C in other ways, such as enhancing absorption through glucose pathways into cells, thus stimulating utilization in repair and protection activities. Finally, this innovative new nature-identical vitamin C formula is 100% vegetarian, and has been enhanced with synergistic bioflavonoids to ensure that its active constituents are well-absorbed and highly effective. Vitamin C just got better! Nature C Plus is the better vitamin C!
