 Heaven & Earth's Vitamin C Tabs

Description

Heaven & Earth's Vitamin C is specially formulated from rose hips, a rich whole plant source of vitamin C, for enhanced antioxidant support. Rose hips are the fruit of the rose plant and an abundant natural source of vitamin C. Rose hips have been used for thousands of years in folk medicine as a therapeutic agent. It is one of the richest plant sources of vitamin C, as well as pectin, vitamins A, D and E and antioxidant flavonoids.

Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is one of the most important vitamins in the body. This water-soluble vitamin supports the immune system and helps protect your cells from free radical damage. Rose hips' antioxidant flavonoids and vitamin C neutralize harmful free radicals and protect against inflammation and chronic diseases. Free radicals are toxic byproducts of metabolic functions or are introduced from the environment. Free radicals cause damage to cells and tissues, which is associated with cancer, heart disease, and age-related diseases. Rose hips' antioxidants and vitamin C neutralize harmful free radicals and help protect your body from premature aging, infections and disease.

Rose hips and vitamin C supplementation helps strengthen collagen and connective tissue. It also helps defend against colds and flu, heal burns and wounds, treat allergy-related conditions such as asthma, eczema and hay fever, and prevent the risk of eye diseases such cataracts, age-related macular degeneration (a degenerative eye disease), uveitis (eye inflammation) and glaucoma.

Rose hips are rich in pectin, a natural fiber that promotes healthy cholesterol levels, blood pressure, digestion and heart health. Pectin is useful for weight management because it promotes fullness and suppresses hunger cravings. Rose hips also have a mild diuretic effect that can eliminate water retention and help kidney and urinary tract problems.

Taking a daily rose hips and vitamin C supplement, such as Heaven & Earth's Vitamin C, can boost your body's defenses against free radicals, prevent colds and flu, support collagen and connective tissue repair and promote weight management.

I take these tablets daily to help boost my immune system. I am usually prone to severe colds often, and have found these to be very helpful. Since i started taking these tablets, i have become more immune to colds, and it's been a long time since i suffered from a cold. Vitamin C is also beneficial in a lot of other ways, so this is one product that i cannot do without.

I love these little tablets because they dissolve so easily. I feel like I'm getting my vitamin c really quickly with these. I also love the high amount of calcium because it's a great bonus.

I have been taking this product regularly over the winter and spring and have noticed a difference in my health. I have not been as sick despite it being a bad flu season and the mom of three young children. I would recommend this product to anyone.
