Blooms Vitamin C 1000 & Rosehip 500 can help reduce the severity and duration of colds, and may assist in the relief of upper respiratory tract infections.
Vitamin C is an important component for the support of connective tissues including elastin, fibronectin, proteoglycans, bone matrix and elastin-associated fibrillin. Vitamin C plays an important role in supporting collagen and procollagen.
Rosehips are a major source of natural Vitamin C. In addition to Vitamin C, rosehips contain such carotenoids as beta-carotene, lycopene, zeaxanthin, rubixanthin, and lutein. They also contain flavonoids, catechins, polyphenols, procyanidins and pectins.
Vitamin C is required for at least 300 metabolic functions in the body, including tissue growth and repair, adrenal gland function, and healthy gums. It aids in the production of anti-stress hormones and interferon, an important immune-system protein, and is needed for the metabolism of folic acid, tyrosine, and phenylalanine.
