Vitamin C is one of the biggest immune system boosters and a lack of vitamin C can make you more prone to becoming ill. It is essential for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues and is involved in many body functions. These include absorption of iron, formation of collagen, wound healing, immune system support and the maintenance of bones, joint cartilage and teeth.
For a triple antioxidant effect, it is great to combine three powerful nutrients: vitamin C, zinc and selenium. This triple combo forms a powerful agent against free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage cells that are produced by the body as it changes food into energy, and are caused by exposure to radiation, various pollutants and cigarette smoke.
Cell damage is a result of free radicals and its effects can lead to chronic diseases such as cancer and heart disease. Vitamin C, zinc and selenium are antioxidants that can neutralize free radicals. The combination of these antioxidant nutrients multiplies their beneficial effects. Combine these three nutrients for a better support of the immune system in fighting colds and the flu; and to reduce free radical damage, prevention of premature aging and chronic diseases.
