Humans do not make Vitamin C like animals do; we need to supplement this essential vitamin to meet our daily needs. Inadequate amounts of Vitamin C means poor collagen. Vitamin C and Lysine work together to build collagen, which strengthens and holds together the coronary cells. Coronary arteries, closest to the heart, receive the greatest pressure. Without enough Vitamin C the collagen weakens. This sets the stage for heart attack or stroke. Healthy collagen also supports healthy teeth, gums, cartilage, bones, connective tissue and wound healing. The antioxidants in Medi-C Plus also support and help maintain good health.
Why Remove Calcium and Add Magnesium?
The average North American consumes only 40 percent of the recommended daily allowance of magnesium.This can have serious consequences as magnesium is required for 300 metabolic reactions and activates 76 percent of the enzymes of the body. Today we have an aging population and as we age magnesium absorption decreases and kidney excretion increases – a bad combination. Magnesium is also vital for the regulation of heart rate, as well as healthy immune and neurological systems. With this in mind we have replaced calcium with magnesium as the buffer in Medi-C Plus. Most adults have adequate calcium in their diet and too much can be a problem. Magnesium on the other hand is a vitally important element for good health and is often overlooked.
