Vitamin C benefits the body in numerous ways, boosting immunity, guarding against pollution, cigarette smoke and stress, enhancing wound repair as well as reducing the risk of cataracts. Vitamin C may assist with the treatment of colds by reducing the severity and duration of symptoms. It may also assist in the relief of hayfever and allergies.
Thompson’s Ultra C supplies Vitamin C in the advanced Poly-ascorbate form. This state-of-the-art process has distinct advantages over ordinary Vitamin C. Firstly, better absorption, due to the bonding of Vitamin C to mineral ascorbates, and Ultra C is gentler on the stomach than other Vitamin C complexes that use highly acidic ascorbic acid (pH 2.4).
High doses of Vitamin C may lead to an increase in the excretion of some minerals. Ultra C contains the minerals Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc, by supplying minerals actually bonded to Vitamin C.
Ultra C also provides the valuable cofactors Bioflavonoids, Rosehips and Zinc to further enhance the action of the complex.
