Vitamin C has a lot of health benefits, including:
Most vitamin C supplements on the market are made of synthetic vitamin C at a dosage of 500-1000mg, which is around five to ten times the recommended daily intake. The truth is, not only are these vitamin C acidic, making it hard to tolerate for some people, they are not as bioavailable as food-based vitamin C, as they lack all of the natural and essential co-factors needed for the body to fully absorb and utilize them. Moreoever, excessive intake of vitamin C does not enhance immunity or provide additional benefits, as they cannot be stored in the body and will be excreted in the urine. Long-term excessive intake of vitamin C may also increase the risk of kidney stone formation by increasing the oxalic acid component in the urine.
The best sources of vitamin C are in fact, natural fruits and vegetables, as they can be fully absorbed and utilized by the body. However, as food quality declines, and daily intake of fruits and vegetables may be inadequate, supplementation of a food-based vitamin C is the next best option.
Marie Reynolds London Vegan C is a unique food-based source of vitamin C, derived from some of nature’s richest sources of essential vitamins and antioxidants, including Acerola Cherry, Parsley, Blackcurrant, Rosehip, and Elderberry. Besides providing vitamin C in its most natural food state, it is abundant in a wide variety of natural vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, bioflavonoids, pectins, lycopene, carotenoids, plant sterols, catechins, polyphenolics and other phyto-nutrients.
As Vegan C is made up of pure natural food ingredients, it is gentle and easily recognised by the body for maximum digestion, absorption and utilisation, and is not rapidly excreted from the body. It is also non-acidic, making it suitable for everyone without aggravating certain conditions.
Krill are shrimp-like crustaceans that may be one of the most abundant multi-celled organisms on the planet. They are a rich source of omega-3 fatty acids——alpha-linolenic acid (ALA), eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA), and docosahexaenoic acid (DHA), which the body can only get from food or supplements, but are a critical part of the membranes surrounding each of the cells in the body, and are vital for body energy levels, as well as the heart, brain, blood vessels, lungs, immune system, and endocrine system.
While fish oils also contain EPA and DHA, krill oil, has the advantage of having a lot of phospholipids, which help the body better absorb omega-3s. Krill oil also offers vitamin A and antioxidants, namely astaxanthin.
The benefits that Krill Oil provides include:
Whilst, Astaxanthin, naturally found in Krill oil and often dubbed the "king of carotenoids" is a kind of fat-soluble carotenoid that research shows to be one of the most powerful antioxidants in nature. Its ability in protecting the cells from free radicals and oxidative stress is found to be 6,000 times higher than vitamin C, 550 times higher than vitamin E and 40 times higher than beta-carotene. Note that natural astaxanthin, from krill oil for instance, is 20 times more effective at eliminating free radicals than synthetic astaxanthin.
Its wide array of benefits include:
While fish oil also contains omega-3 fatty acids, thanks to its higher absorbability, and its astaxanthin content, Krill Oil is considered to be superior to fish oil.
Marie Reynolds London Ocean EFA features 500mg Antarctic Krill Oil of the highest grade, free of potentially harmful levels of mercury, heavy metals, PCBs and dioxins, and is sustainably-sourced from fisheries in the Antarctic through Aker BioMarine, who work with World Wildlife Foundation Norway.
One capsule provides 500mg of krill oil rich in omega-3 fatty acids (DHA and EPA), phospholipids, astaxanthin, which can cross the blood-brain barrier, as well as vitamin A, to help protect the eyes, brain and central nervous system from free radical damage, and boost immune system, cognitive, gut, bone and skin health, whilst providing anti-inflammatory benefits.
