NOW Vitamin C 1000 mg
Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient well known for its vital role in the immune system. Vitamin C is also necessary for the production of collagen (a structural protein in connective tissue) and is therefore important for skin, bone, and joint health.
Vitamin C is needed for amino acid metabolism, neurotransmitter synthesis, and the utilization of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. It is also a highly effective antioxidant that can help maintain healthy tissues by neutralizing free radicals generated during normal metabolism and exposure to environmental stressors.
This product includes bioflavonoids, which work synergistically to support vitamin C utilization.

- Supports the immune system
The body’s immune cells require high amounts of glutathione to function optimally. Supplementation with GSH results in higher blood levels of glutathione, and greater natural killer cell activity. Natural killer cells play an important role in neutralizing infections.
- Helps reduce oxidative stress
Oxidative stress occurs when an imbalance exists between free radicals and antioxidants in the body, and can lead to a variety of health problems.
- Regenerates antioxidants
Glutathione helps regenerate antioxidants such as vitamins C and E. Conversely, having low levels of antioxidants may result in oxidative stress and glutathione depletion. A 2015 study showed that compared to individuals with adequate vitamin C intake, those with a low intake of vitamin C had depleted levels of glutathione and high levels of oxidative stress. This research suggests that vitamin C and glutathione have a synergistic relationship—meaning that glutathione restores vitamin C and vitamin C helps maintain glutathione.
- Removes toxins
Glutathione bind mercury in the body, and helps carry this toxic metal to the urine for elimination. The body also normally creates its own “internal toxins,” which glutathione helps remove.
- May provide brain-supportive properties
Research suggests that glutathione regulates a vital neurotransmitter called glutamate which is responsible for communication in the brain between nerve cells. Studies have shown that the glutathione precursor NAC helps support healthy brain-glutamate levels.
- Supports respiratory health
The lungs need particularly high amounts of glutathione because they are subjected to high amounts of oxidative stress.
Maintaining your glutathione levels through supplementation of glutathione, NAC and Vitamin C optimizes antioxidant levels, boosts the immune system, and supports respiratory, brain and liver health.
