Melrose Vitamin C + Bioflavonoids is an easy to use nutrient powder that contains a unique blend of antioxidants including a well-balanced blend of three forms of Vitamin C: Calcium Ascorbate, Sodium Ascorbate and Ascorbic Acid enhanced with Bioflavonoids Hesperidin and Rutin. Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble vitamin that the body cannot make or store, so it is important that an adequate amount is consumed daily through the diet.
Vitamin C is essential for the formation of connective tissue in the skin, joints, bones, tendons, ligaments, spinal discs and the walls of blood vessels. Formation of the amino acid Carnitine is dependent on Vitamin C and Carnitine deficiency can cause fatigue and muscle weakness. Vitamin C helps to increase iron absorption from vegetarian foods, which may help fatigue and weakness due to iron deficiency.
