Fizz-C

Internal bodily functions or External factors such as sun, pollution, unhealthy foods, alcohol, pesticides and cigarette smoke can produce free radicals that destroy body cells through a process called oxidation.Free radicals can damage healthy tissue and are an important cause of many diseases such as:

  • Impairing the immune system
  • Inflammatory disease
  • Lung damage
  • Ischemia (lack of oxygenated blood)
  • Leading to progression of cardiovascular disease, cancers and aging
  • Ageing
  • Carcinogens (agent capable of causing cancer)Diabetes and others

Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant , molecule capable of slowing or preventing the oxidation of other molecules . It also repairs damage already sustained by cells.

Research shows how this mighty vitamin protects your body:

  • Increases production of infection-fighting white blood cells and antibodies
  • Increases levels of interferon, the antibody that coats cell surfaces
  • Preventing the entry of viruses

Why Fizz-C

Human Beings cannot synthesize vitamin C on our own. Therefore, we must get enough of it from foods or supplements to maintain good health .The nutrient is easily destroyed by heat, so consuming these foods raw might maximize your nutrient intake.
