NRF Vitamin C for Eye Care

An interesting study by The American Optometric Association notes that vitamin C benefits include slowing the progression of age-related macular degeneration (AMD) which is the number one cause of blindness as we get older and will help to preserve sharp vision. Scientific evidence suggests vitamin C lowers the risk of developing cataracts of which risk factors are smoking, diabetes and steroid use which can deplete the eye’s lens of vitamin C.

In addition, NRF Vita-C health products and NRF Vita-Zinc are ideal for building up immunity and fighting off colds and flu. Vitamin C has wide reaching health benefits and is required for many physiological functions in the body such as biosynthesis of collagen, L carnitine and some very important neurotransmitters. It is an important physiological antioxidant, plays an important role in immune function as well as in the absorption of some forms of iron and is also involved in protein metabolism. Another benefit of Vitamin C is that when taken after an evening of over indulgence, it can help to replenish the body’s Vitamin C and detoxify alcohol, therefore minimizing tissue damage and hangover discomfort.

In order to assist in preventing and treating colds and flu and as ongoing good health maintenance, NRF Health has a full range of Vitamin C products to suit the whole family. Buffered Vitamin C is suitable for people who suffer with an acidic condition and delicate stomachs.

The most acceptable recommended amount of Vitamin C for a daily diet seems to be up to 1000mg, however various factors such as smoking or illness may affect the amount the body may best need.  All products are suitable for the whole family and the NRF Vita-C effervescent products can be safely given to children and are easily administered when dissolved in water.
