Unique Properties

Patient One Vitamin C supplies 1000mg of all natural C-lipid metabolites, along with 200mg of citrus bioflavonoids. As Vitamin C is a water soluable vitamin that the body does not make or store, our formula uses a special delivery system that allows the vitamin C to be more rapidly absorbed and retained by the body. Ascorbic acid is combined with lipid metabolites, fat-soluble compounds that increase vitamin C’s function in the body. Bioflavonoids, polyphenolic compounds found in plants such as vitamin C-rich citrus fruit, are included to complement the activities of Vitamin C.

Sufficient intake and retention is necessary to maintain vitamin C status in the body. Factors that increase the human requirement for this essential nutrient include stress, smoking, pollution, radiation and heavy metal exposure, and immune challenge. The Institute of Medicine has recommended an increase in Vitamin C requirements for smokers due to their exposure to toxins and oxidative elements in cigarette smoke.

Role of Vitamin C and Citrus Bioflavonoids

Vitamin C supports a diverse range of bodily functions, including immune stimulation and protection, vascular function and synthesis of collagen, carnitine, and neurotransmitters. It is used in the growth and repair of tissue throughout the body and is a powerful antioxidant that helps neutralize free radicals.

Vitamin C has been widely studied and is commonly known for its role in moderating the severity or duration of acute immune challenges. It appears to heighten the immune response to infections, impacting T-cell proliferation. This nutrient also plays a role in the deactivation of histamine.

The essential role of vitamin C in the formation of collagen makes it crucial in maintaining skin, gum, capillary, joint and skeletal health. Vitamin C is important in energy production, as synthesis of carnitine is dependent upon this nutrient. Because it is necessary for the conversion of dopamine to norepinephrine, Vitamin C assists in maintaining healthy mood and brain function. Supplementation with vitamin C also appears to help reduce inflammation and inflammatory biomarkers, particularly circulating C-reactive protein (CRP).

Our formula includes citrus bioflavonoids, phytonutrients that are vital for proper absorption of Vitamin C. Studies have shown their ability to enhance and prolong the action of vitamin C. 

Research

  • Comparative research studies in vitro and in humans demonstrate that this patented form of vitamin C is more rapidly absorbed and leads to higher plasma and cellular levels, having faster and more beneficial effects than ascorbic acid, calcium ascorbate and other ascorbate products. These benefits include better stimulation of neurite outgrowth, increased fibroblast wound healing activities, increased protection of the immune system from xenobiotic induced inflammatory mechanisms, and greater reduction of plasma levels of C-reactive protein and oxidized LDL, as well as more potent antioxidant and free radical scavenging capabilities.
