I'm very sensitive to different types of vitamin C and have to be very careful when I supplement my diet with extra C. Fortunately for me Alive! Vitamin C powder from Nature's Way is easy to incorporate into my "Detox Cocktail" and I rely on it to help cleanse and rebuild my system. I never have to worry about getting mouth sores from taking it and love the convenience and ease of blending just as much as I need into my drink.
Review
there is no limit when taking vimtain c because vimtain c is soluble in water, so it doesn't get stored in the body, instead it gets excreted out through urine. I am not sure about other vimtains, but i'm pretty sure there is a limit for other vimtains.
Review
I love this pure form of Vitamin C. HealthForce Nutritional products are the purest on the market. I double up on my C dose when I first feel a cold coming on and it cuts my symptoms in half. I would highly recommend this product.
Review
Wow... great tasting, fun to drink, and healthy! I have enjoyed Emergen-C for more than a year now and use it regularly to get my daily fill of water and Vitamin C. Incorporate it in to your daily diet as a more easily ingested form of Vitamin C that seems to be highly effective. My immune system seems to love having Emergen-C on hand, and it's great when sick as it lacks the sugar that soda drinks, like Sprite (commonly used to sooth sore throats), which is better for your health and immunity. Emergen-C comes in packets, sort of like adult Kool-Aid, and is easy to travel with. It is great to take through airport security so you can have a refreshing drink on the other side just by filling your Nalgene bottle with water and a packet of this stuff! Also, it makes a great alternative to sugary kids drinks.
Review
Vitamin C is so important for htaleh that the vast majority of animals manufacture it daily in their bodies. This is why animals can live outdoors even in the winter without getting colds or most other infectious illnesses. Being htalehy is important to animals because if an animal gets sick it usually becomes eaten by a htalehy animal. Only a few animals principally humanes, monkeys, and apes cannot manufacture vitamin C. The inability to manufacture vitamin C confines monkeys and apes to live in or near the tropics, where the weather is warm and edible fruits and vegetation is very rich in vitamin C and thus can supply their need for this essential nutrient. Outside the tropics they would get sick and die or be killed, so most monkeys and apes live only in or near the tropics unlike most other animal species. When monkeys and apes are removed from the tropics to live in zoos or as pets, they routinely are fed a diet very rich in vitamin C in order to keep them htalehy.Humans also originated in the tropics and cannot manufacture vitamin C but unlike monkeys and apes most humans eventually migrated away from the vitamin C rich tropics and spread all over the world to places in which the food supply contains much less vitamin C than is needed to maintain our htaleh. Thus, unlike other animals, we humans routinely get sick with colds and other illnesses which adequate vitamin C would protect us against. Only the invention and use of clothing, shelter, and weapons makes it possible for humans to survive the illnesses caused by inadequate vitamin C which we routinely get. Humans are the only animals which routinely get sick and yet generally survive our illnesses. But why should we live with periodic bouts of illness? Why not protect ourselves by taking supplemental vitamin C? This is the argument presented in this outstanding book and by the greatest chemist of the 20th century, Dr. Linus Pauling in his book Vitamin C, the Common Cold, and the Flu. Linus Pauling was the greatest chemist of the 20th century and is the only person ever to have been awarded two unshared Nobel Prizes. Please acquire and read this valuable book and Pauling's as well. If you take adequate supplemental vitamin C daily, you probably will become htalehier in many ways, and may never have another cold or the flu.D. R. Schryer invites you to read . . .

I have been using BF&C for about 10 years. I had had a very painful bone spur on the "heel" of my thumb and my Dr. had recommended surgery. A friend's husband had used BF&C on his knees with severe arthritis, and within a few months he began playing raquetball again. So I rubbed it on my thumb/wrist area 3 times a day and at night before bed. Within a month the bone spur was GONE and I had no more sharp pain at all. I now use it for maintenance, at bedtime putting it on my fingers and thumb, and on my knees, neck and back. My arthritis pain is much less sever than it had been and I believe the cartilage is acually rebuilding. I most heartily recommend Bone, Flesh & Cartilage for arthritis pain.

Fruits and vegetables are high an anoitxidants which are really important for your body, so many some kind of antioxidant supplement. Instead of making fruits and veggies a chore maybe you could add them in by making a smoothie (frozen berries with yogurt) or even a soup (chicken stock and peas pureed together). If not you could always try V8 drinks too. Then maybe taking a multivitamin, with the a, b, c, d, e, magnesium's and calcium's etc.

I came across this product after researching proteolytic enzymes on a tip from "Alive" magazine, pg 57, January 2007, which suggested such enzymes to improve immune function to combat hypothyroidism. It is an interesting way to naturally manage thyroid health, and other autoimmune disorders, such as Lupus. On it, and a mix of Vitamin C, Turmeric and Vitamin E, my TSH hormones have dropped to below 1. It had my MD ND taking notes. I take 2-3 servings daily of 5-10 tabs. The bottle smells delicious upon opening it, and for some reason, causes great physiological joy, motivating a passionate stick-to-it-edness for my regimen. I highly recommend Wobenzym.

Skin Care and DietWhether you want natural tueaby or theatrical drama, you'll need healthy skin so translucent friends can see the blue fizzy pop you're drinking go right down your neck. Your skin is the fingerprint of what is going on inside your body. All skin conditions, from flaky skin to acne and dryness, are warning you what your body needs.Read about what you need to keep your skin as wonderful as blue fizzy pop Vitamins C, E, A, K, and B complex feed your skinStudies show that the vitamins C, E, A, K, and B complex all help improve skin health and appearance. Here's how.Vitamin C. Vitamin C works by reducing the damage caused by free radicals, a harmful byproduct of sunlight, smoke, and pollution. Free radicals gobble up collagen and elastin, the fibers that support skin structure and make it plump (not you plump! Your skin plump!) and flexible.Vitamin-C rich foods like citrus fruits (especially kiwis) and vegetables (think tomatoes) replace the loss of vitamin C through the skin. You can also take vitamin C supplements, from 500 to 1,000 milligrams. Combined with vitamin E, vitamin C supplements can also protect skin from sun exposure. Vitamin E. Research shows that, like vitamin C, this potent antioxidant helps reduce the harmful effects of the sun on the skin. Some studies show that when vitamins E and A are taken together, people show a 70% reduction in basal cell carcinoma, a common form of skin cancer.Vitamin E can also help reduce wrinkles if/when you have any and make your skin look and feel smoother. (Be aware, though, that some recent research warns that large doses of vitamin E can be harmful. Stay with 400 international units per day or less to be on the safe side.) Used in a cream, lotion, or serum form, vitamin E can soothe dry, rough skin. Foods naturally rich in vitamin E include nuts, such as almonds, vegetable oils, seeds, wheat germ, spinach and other dark, green leafy vegetables. Another bonus with Vitamin E is that it's good for your hair.Vitamin A. Most people get enough vitamin A from a semi-regular diet, but if levels drop even a little below par, you'll probably see some skin-related symptoms, including a dry, flaky complexion. That's because vitamin A maintains and repairs skin tissue. The bad news, and it's pretty cryworthy, is that alcohol and coffee deplete your vitamin A levels. The good news is that it can be found in carrots, mangos, sweet potatos, spinach, dried apricots (bonus fact: one apricot slice is equal to one of your five recommended daily portions of fruit/veg!), milk, egg yolks and mozzarella cheese.Topical vitamin A is the form that makes a real difference in your skin. Medical studies show a reduction in lines and wrinkles, good acne control, and some psoriasis relief, all from using creams containing this nutrient. The prescription treatment is called Retin A, and it's used primarily as a treatment for acne. The less potent, over-the-counter formulations are sold as retinols and used as anti-aging treatments. Vitamin B Complex. When it comes to skin, the single most important B vitamin is biotin, a nutrient that forms the basis of skin, nail, and hair cells. Without adequate amounts, you may end up with dermatitis (an itchy, scaly skin reaction) or sometimes even hair loss. Even a mild deficiency causes symptoms. Your body makes plenty of biotin, and the nutrient is also in many foods, including bananas, eggs, oatmeal, and rice.Creams containing B vitamins can give skin an almost instant healthy glow while hydrating cells and increasing overall tone at the same time. Niacin, a specific B vitamin, helps skin retain moisture, so your complexion looks more smooth and fab in as little as six days. It also has anti-inflammatory properties to soothe dry, irritated skin. In higher concentrations it can work as a lightening agent to even out blotchy skin tone. Is there no end to its goodness? You would almost think we were vitamin B dealers. (Almost. We're not.)Non vitamins your skin craves and desiresEssential Fatty Acids (EFAs). If your skin is dry, prone to inflammation, and frequently dotted with white / black heads, you may be lacking essential fatty acids as they form the skin's natural oil barrier (and also make you concentrate and remember things better, huzzah). Without an adequate supply of EFAs, the skin produces a skankier form of sebum, or oil, which can result in problems.Skin experts reckon balancing out two of the key EFAs (omega-3 and omega-6) is the key. While most folks get plenty of omega-6s (in cooking oils, poultry, grains and more), omega-3s are often lacking. They're found mostly in cold-water fish, including salmon, sardines, and mackerel, flaxseed, and flax and safflower oils. Taking supplements, such as fish oil capsules or evening primrose oil, may also help keep your skin smoother. The favourite mookychick form of taking our essential acids is a nice spoonful of omega-rich
