Douglas Effer C 240 gRegular price $36.00 Save $-36.00
Effer C contains vitamin C, specially buffered with calcium, magnesium and potassium and makes an effervescent drink when mixed with water or juice. Vitamin C has numerous biological functions. Foremost, it helps in the formation of connective tissue, as vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen. It is this role of vitamin C in the formation of connective tissue that makes it essential for the development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth and gums. Vitamin C is the required coenzyme for two groups of enzymes that catalyze the cross-linking of collagen fibers making vitamin C essential for wound healing. Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants as laboratory studies show that vitamin C protects lipids in plasma and low-density lipoproteins (LDL) against atherogenic peroxidative damage.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate,

Genestra Ascorbyl-C + Bioflavonoids 90 VCapsRegular price $46.00 Save $-46.00
Ascorbyl-C + Bioflavonoids offers an excellent source of vitamin C in both lipid- and water-soluble forms, plus citrus bioflavonoids. Vitamin C is one of the most important dietary antioxidants and helps to reduce free radicals and lipid oxidation in body tissues. Although normally only water-soluble, this formula provides vitamin C from ascorbyl palmitate, a bioavailable lipid-soluble form shown in preclinical research to cross the blood-brain barrier and scavenge free radicals in the brain.
Magnesium, potassium and zinc ascorbates are also included to buffer vitamin C. As this neutral pH form of vitamin C is gentler on the stomach, it may reduce the potential gastric irritation associated with ascorbic acid - making it ideal for sensitive individuals. Zinc helps to maintain immune function along with vitamin C, while magnesium helps to maintain electrolyte balance and proper muscle function, including the heart muscle.
As many Canadian adults may not consume the recommended level of vitamin C and these essential minerals, Ascorbyl-C + Bioflavonoids can help contribute to their recommended dietary intakes. Citrus bioflavonoids are also included to provide additional antioxidants and have been shown in preclinical studies to increase the bioavailability of vitamin C.

Vitamin C is among the most powerful antioxidants in humans. Vitamin C is a water-soluble antioxidant that can react directly with superoxide and hydroxyl radicals to decrease potential damage to cells within the body. In addition, vitamin C interacts with glutathione and alpha-lipoic acid, and can regenerate the antioxidant potential of vitamin E. Vitamin C helps in the development and maintenance of bones, cartilage, teeth, and gums. In bone, Vitamin C helps form collagen in the bone matrix while scavenging free radicals that can be detrimental to bones. Vitamin C supplementation has been associated with increased bone mineral density and lower fracture probabilities in adults.
Vitamin C is also essential in the formation of connective tissue and aids in wound healing by decreasing proinflammatory responses and medicating proliferative and remodeling stages in the healing process.

AOR Mag-K-Taurine 90 VCapsRegular price $32.95 Save $-32.95
Magnesium, potassium and taurine are essential for healthy cardiovascular function. The heart health benefits of magnesium and potassium are mostly due to their electrolyte effects on cells and nerves, supporting the ability of nerves to transmit signals and the ability of muscles to contract, both of which are important to regulate heart rhythm. A deficiency in either magnesium or potassium can result in high blood pressure, and many studies have found supplementation with either mineral to be effective for lowering blood pressure. Even mild deficiencies in potassium may result in nervous disorders, insomnia, and irregular heartbeat. Nutritional research has also proven taurine's ability to lower blood pressure, stabilize membranes and regulate the heartbeat. In repeated studies, taurine has been shown effective for regulating heartbeat, as well as for minimizing the damage caused by a lack of oxygen to the heart tissues.
Mag-K-Taurine is ideal for those looking for a synergistic, highly absorbable mineral supplement to correct a magnesium or electrolyte deficiency. Mag-K-Taurine is especially effective in maintaining healthy blood pressure and to counterbalance an irregular heartbeat.
• Supports healthy blood pressure and regulates heart rhythm
