Kirkland Signature Vitamin C is a high potency, nutritional supplement. In addition to Vitamin C, our product also contains a citrus complex of bioflavonoids, which may assist in the body's absorption of Vitamin C, and rose hips, which are a natural source of Vitamin C.†
We've added an easy to swallow, plant based coating to this essential daily vitamin that has many important functions in the body:
•May support the immune system† • May promote antioxidant activity†
What role does it play?
While Vitamin C is essential to our overall good health, it is water soluble so any Vitamin C not used by the body is readily eliminated. That means that this important vitamin needs to be replenished daily. Vitamin C is vital because it is now known to play multiple supporting roles in keeping people feeling their best.†
For instance, Vitamin C acts as an antioxidant, which may help to protect the body's cells from potential oxidative damage of reactive oxygen species (ROS) and free radicals. In addition, Vitamin C may help support immune system function. With the challenges of daily living, maintaining immune function through proper nutrition, exercise and the right amount of sleep is one of the best things you can do for your body.†
What are Alternative Food Source?
Furthermore, Vitamin C is considered one of the key building blocks in the body. For example, Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, as well as other substances in the body. Collagen, in turn, may support connective tissue health, and that includes the health of teeth, gums and bones. So, Vitamin C, directly and indirectly may support many areas of good health in the body.†
There are many great food sources of Vitamin C, providing we have the time to eat right. Some fruits and vegetables are considered excellent sources of Vitamin C.
However, to get the same amount of Vitamin C as in one Kirkland Signature Vitamin C 1000 mg tablet, you would need to eat over 8 cups of raw oranges or over 10 cups of raw grapefruit or broccoli florets from 3 heads of the vegetable!
As we rush through our busy days, we don’t always have the time to eat right and get the recommended daily intake of Vitamin C. By taking high potency Kirkland Signature Vitamin C 1000 mg each day, coupled with citrus bioflavonoids that help with the uptake of Vitamin C plus rose hips, you won’t leave getting the right amount of Vitamin C to chance.
