PRODUCT IS A MIXTURE OF
Ascorbic acid (vitamin C) and Purple Coneflower (Echinacea)
PhysioLogics' Vitamin C-500 mg and Echinacea 100 mg combines the powerful antioxidant properties of vitamin C with the traditional Native American herbal supplement Echinacea in one convenient tablet to support immune system health.
STRUCTURE AND FUNCTION
Vitamin C is an essential antioxidant that directly influences the myeloperoxidase/hydrogen peroxide/halide system of neutrophils. By modulating this system, Vitamin C neutralizes superoxide production, helping to protect the eyes, lungs, and blood from free radical damage.
For immune system support, Vitamin C has been shown to promote the response of lymphocytes to cytokines. In addition, Vitamin C enhances the phagocytic functions of polymorphonuclear (PMN) neutrophils and supports the adherence of these cells to the vascular endothelium.
Echinacea is the most widely used herbal tonic with its historical roots tracing back to Native Americans. While the exact mechanisms of how Echinacea works in the body are not completely understood, the polysaccharide, flavonoid, caffeic acid, and alkemide components of Echinacea are believed to work with the body.
The antioxidant and immune support of Vitamin C and the traditional herb Echinacea offer a popular combination to support your clients' needs. PhysioLogics' Vitamin C-500 mg and Echinacea 100 mg may be a desirable dietary supplement for individuals who want to support their immune system health.
HOW CLIENTS MAY BENEFIT
* Vitamin C scavenges harmful free radicals to neutralize free radicals for eye, blood, and lung tissue support.
* Support the body's immune system.
* This supplement contains Echinacea, one of the most widely used traditional herbal therapies.
In a randomized double-blind survey, 168 volunteers were randomized to receive a placebo or a 1000 mg vitamin C supplement daily for 60 days between November and February. The Vitamin C group reported more immune system support than the placebo group.
Data from the First National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey (NHANES I) show that vitamin C intakes of about 178 mg/day are associated with significant respiratory support compared to people consuming only 60 mg of Vitamin C per day.
Kennes et al. investigated the effects of 500mg/day supplementation of Vitamin C on the immune system in the elderly. Vitamin C was found to promote the proliferative response of T lymphocytes compared to the placebo.
A placebo-controlled double-blind study in Italy found that supplementation with 400 mg Vitamin C and 100 mg Echinacea contributed to more immune support when compared to a placebo.
A recent study in France investigated the cardiovascular support potential of Vitamin C. Morel et al. found that 1000 mg of Vitamin C every day for 5 days supported endothelial tissue by promoting healthy microparticle levels, demonstrating the importance of antioxidants in circulatory health.
Vitamin C is one of the most renowned antioxidants in the human body. Echinacea is a traditional herbal supplement used for centuries. PhysioLogics' Vitamin C-500 mg and Echinacea 100 mg provides a convenient way to support immune system health in one easy-to-swallow tablet.
PRODUCT DISCUSSION: Vitamin C is a watersoluble antioxidant that works with the body to promote immune system health. Echinacea is a centuries-old way to support the body. Supplementing with this formulation is an excellent way to promote immune system health.

Great product at a great price!
By Valerie from Connecticut on January 24, 2011
I have used Physiologics C-500 with Echinacea for about 5 years and try to always have it on hand for when I feel under the weather. It was recommended to me by a naturopathic physician I had worked for and was a patient of. We all know the benefits of Vitamin C and Echinacea has been used for its healing capabilities for many many years. Fast shipping and quality product!
Pros:The combo of not only Vitamin C, but Echinacea and Rose Hips in one tablet
Cons:Nothing I can think of!
I would recommend this item to a friend.
