Vitamin C to Support the Immune System

Vitamin C supports the immune system. A deficiency vitamin C may increase the risk of infections such as the common cold, and vitamin C supplementation is commonly used to treat upper respiratory infections. And, there are many other health benefits.  Vitamin C may slow the progression of advanced age-related macular degeneration and the loss of visual acuity (sharpness). Vitamin C may also have beneficial effects on cataracts and diabetic retinopathy. Vitamin C supports healthy skin, including promoting collagen formation and neutralizing damaging free radicals, particularly when used in combination with vitamin E. Vitamin C derivatives may decrease the synthesis of melanin (skin pigment), which may be helpful in reducing age spots. It’s important to include vitamin C-rich foods in your diet or take supplements to obtain this essential nutrient. Ask our pharmacist about the right dose and type of supplement for each member of your family.
