Vitamin C is a champion when it comes to the immune system. This watersoluble vitamin helps protect our cells and DNA from damaging free radicals and plays a critical role in collagen production for healthy hair, skin, and nails.*
Did you know that vitamin C is an essential nutrient? This means that our bodies cannot make vitamin C, so we must regularly get it from our food or supplements in order to maintain the health of our cells.
- Vitamin C is well-known for its central role in protecting our immune system. That’s why when we get sick, we’re often told to drink orange juice because it’s considered a rich source of vitamin C. However, many people are concerned with the amount of sugar they are also consuming with that tall glass of orange juice. But with our Tru- C gummies, you’ll meet and exceed the daily recommended vitamin C intake with 250mg per serving (278% daily value) and only 5 grams of sugar! To get the same amount of vitamin C, you would need to drink 2 cups of orange juice, which contains roughly 42 grams of sugar2.
- This makes it easy to add Tru-C to your daily wellness routine because vitamin C does so much more than support healthy immune activity! It also has been shown to be beneficial for skin, hair, and joint health by stabilizing collagen and allowing for increased collagen production to aid in tissue repair, hair growth and wound healing3.
- Furthermore, vitamin C acts as a forceful antioxidant that shields cells from damage, especially during times of stress4. This, in addition to improving the absorption of iron, which is an important mineral necessary for healthy brain development and red blood cell function, makes vitamin C a powerhouse for cellular support and overall wellness5.
