    Kal Lifestyle Formulas Defender C Mega Vitamin C with Elderberry - 60 Tablets

    Kal Defender C is a comprehensive Vitamin C formula intended to provide nutritive support for immune health. Kal Defender C is made using Rapidsolv tablets that are guaranteed to dissolve in 30 minutes or less.

    Vitamin C (ascorbic acid)

    What is it?
    Vitamin C, or ascorbic acid, is a powerful antioxidant which helps combat free radical damage in the body. Free radicals damage cells, cell membranes and DNA in the body and can be neutralized with antioxidants. A diet seriously deficient in ascorbic acid will lead to scurvy, a disease prominent among sailors prior to the late 1700's.

    Where is it from?
    Fresh fruits and vegetables are the best sources for ascorbic acid. Vitamin C is found in berries, citrus fruits, and green vegetables. Natural vitamin C is usually extracted from rose hips, the fleshy base of the rose. Rose hip is a highly concentrated source of the vitamin, but vitamin C derived from it confers no special benefit. Humans are one of the few creatures that do not produce their own vitamin C, and must obtain it entirely from their diet.

    What is it used for?
    Aside from being a strong antioxidant, Vitamin C promotes the healing of wounds, fractures, bruises, and isolates infections. It also stimulates the adrenal glands to manufacture cortisone, which is involved in healing and helps to combat stress. Vitamin C also supports immunity by stimulating the production of white blood cells, which fight infections.

    Applications:
    Infections, bruising, colds and flu, sinusitis, earaches, sore throats, smokers, blood clots, atherosclerosis, high blood pressure, physical and mental stress, weak immune system, cholesterol levels, liver toxicity.

    Scientific Data:
    Numerous studies have proven the ability of vitamin C to help open constricted bronchiole tubes, accelerate wound healing, scavenge free radicals and help prevent cardiovascular disease. Its role in cancer prevention is also thought to be significant.

    Depleting Agents:
    Aspirin, alcohol, antidepressant drugs, analgesics, oral contraceptives, anticoagulants, steroids, cooking, food processing, diuretics, air pollution, smoking, acetaminophen toxicity. Note: Even fresh vegetables and fruits can quickly lose their vitamin C content if left standing.

    Sources:
    Peppers, potatoes, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, citrus fruits, melons, berries.

    Recommendations:
    Ascorbic acid is the least expensive and most common form of vitamin C. Adding adequate levels of bioflavonoids enhances absorption. Buffered vitamin C is for individuals with sensitivity to acid foods, and time-released products are also available. Ester-C has recently emerged and is thought by some to have better absorption and bioavailability, although some experts debate this claim. If you need to use large quantities of vitamin C, powdered ascorbic acid is the most practical form. Chewables can be appealing for children.

    Elderberry
    Botanical name: Sambucus nigra

    Parts used and where grown
    Numerous species of elder or elderberry grow in Europe and North America. Only those with blue/black berries are medicinal. The flowers and berries are both used. Species with red berries are not medicinal.

    Historical or traditional use (may or may not be supported by scientific studies)
    Elderberries have long been used as food, particularly in the dried form. Elderberry wine, pie, and lemonade are some of the popular ways to prepare this plant as food. The leaves were touted by European herbalists to be pain relieving and to promote healing of injuries when applied as a poultice. Native American herbalists used the plant for infections, coughs, and skin conditions.

    Active constituents
    Flavonoids, including quercetin, are believed to account for the therapeutic actions of the elderberry flowers and berries. These flavonoids include anthocyanins that are powerful antioxidants and protect cells against damage according to test tube studies. According to laboratory research, an extract from the leaves, combined with St. John’s wort and soapwort, inhibits the influenza virus and herpes simplex virus. The effect on influenza of a syrup made from the berries of the black elderberry has been studied in a small double-blind trial.4 People receiving an elderberry extract (2 tablespoons [30 ml] per day for children, 4 tablespoons [60 ml] per day for adults) appeared to recover faster than did those receiving a placebo. Animal studies have shown the flowers to have anti-inflammatory properties. These actions have not been verified in human clinical trials.
