I cannot stress enough the importance of getting adequate amounts of vitamin C through a diet rich in vegetables. And when necessary, complement your diet with a high-quality vitamin C supplement.
Remember, vitamin C is an important antioxidant that is essential...as a major electron donor in your body's battle against oxidation... to help maintain optimal electron flow in your cells... and to help protect vital elements in your body like proteins and lipids.*
With marginal deficiency rates reported as high as 33% in the US and Canada, this "grandfather" of traditional antioxidants should not be taken lightly.
