Nutraceutics Aloe C Defense

 

Description


Nutraceutics Aloe C Defense is a unique, high potency effervescent tablet formulated with the restorative properties of aloe vera and the antioxidant power of vitamin C. Aloe gel is derived from the leaves of the aloe vera plant, and has been used in botanical medicine for millennia. Aloe gel can be applied topically on the skin and has been found to have a beneficial effect on various skin conditions. Aloe gel can also be taken internally and may provide an effective aid for gastrointestinal health and immunity.

Vitamin C (or ascorbic acid) is one of the most important vitamins to the human body. Since this water-soluble vitamin can’t be produced in our bodies, it‘s considered an essential vitamin that can only be derived from dietary sources (mainly fruits and vegetables) and supplementation. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that neutralizes harmful free radicals (toxic molecules that cause damage to cells) associated with the development of degenerative diseases, heart disease, cancer and aging. This beneficial vitamin also plays an important role in collagen formation, as well as heart and bone health.

Taking a supplement drink such as Nutraceutics Aloe C Defense can help boost your body’s defenses, support healthy immune function and gastrointestinal health. Nutraceutics’ convenient, effervescent tablets also include magnesium and calcium, two well-known nutrients that support bone health and overall well-being.

One effervescent tablet of Nutraceutics Aloe C Defense contains the following beneficial nutrients:

• 1,000 mg Vitamin C (as Ascorbic Acid and Sodium Ascorbate)
• 50 mg Betamannin (Lyophilized Whole Aloe Vera Gel and Rice Solubles Extract and Stevia)
• 26 mg Magnesium (as Magnesium Carbonate)
• 940 mcg Calcium (as Calcium Ascorbate)

 

Pros


A great advantage of Nutraceutics Aloe C Defense is that it provides a convenient way to benefit from a unique blend of therapeutic nutrients.

The effertab is dissolved in water or your favorite juice to create a delicious, fizzy drink containing aloe and vitamin C’s therapeutic properties.

Studies have found that Nutraceutics’ Aloe C Defense nutrients have numerous benefits including:

• Improves free radical defense and prevents cell damage
• Promotes tissue repair and wound healing
• Maintains bone and skin health
• Supports gastrointestinal health
• Treats constipation
• Decreases the risk of heart disease

Cons


Taken internally, the constituent found in aloe, barbaloin, can produce a pronounced laxative effect. Although this is useful for the treatment of constipation, experts recommend that aloe should not be taken internally for more than ten consecutive days as it may lead to fluid loss and depletion of the body’s electrolytes. An overdose may cause vomiting, intestinal spasms, kidney inflammation or bloody diarrhea.

With certain people vitamin C may produce a laxative effect, although high intakes of vitamin C (2 grams daily) are well-tolerated by many healthy individuals. Mega doses of vitamin C (over 2.5 grams daily) may cause kidney stones, gastrointestinal irritation, impaired bactericidal activity, lowered plasma ascorbate levels or uric acid in urine.
