Vitamin C with Beets ‘n’ Berries™ is a simple way to increase your consumption of fruits and vegetables.
Ascorbic acid is vitamin C, a nutrient that is well known to be essential for health. Vitamin C was first recognized for its role in the formation of collagen, which is the connective tissue of skin, bones, cartilage, teeth, muscles and blood vessel walls. Vitamin C is also useful as a treatment for colds, likely due to its effects on the immune system. Modern research has found a wide variety of other important roles that ascorbic acid plays in the body. In addition to its roles as a powerful antioxidant, detoxifying agent, and cellular protector, vitamin C also has beneficial effects on the cardiovascular system through its influence on elevated blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Fruits and vegetables contain several phytonutrients that are not found anywhere else, and although these phytonutrients are often not recognized as essential, they help to prevent a plethora of diseases including cardiovascular disease and cancer – North America’s leading causes of death. Diets high in fruits and vegetables have been shown to help prevent most diseases. These include cardiovascular disease, cancer, obesity, macular degeneration, diabetes, gastrointestinal disorders, osteoporosis, kidney stones, obesity and high blood pressure just to name a few. The high nitrate content of fruits and vegetables also translates to significant benefits related to the production of Nitric Oxide which lowers blood pressure and improves blood flow. The beet has recently been found to be more than just an average vegetable. Beet root juice, in addition to being loaded with phytonutrients, is also capable of increasing athletic performance. That’s why Vitamin C with Beets ‘n’ Berries™ contains more beet juice than any other ingredient, to keep you at your best.
