NEW AND IMPROVED...
Don’t worry... it’s still the same great clinically tested Vitamin C (as Pureway-C®) and still includes L-Lysine, but we’ve added something else to make it even better and more effective — Quercetin.*
Quercetin is a bioflavonoid that is complimentary to Vitamin C and helps promote immune function, heart health, and skin health!*
But that’s not all...
We are using a special form of Quercetin that uses a proprietary delivery system to enhance absorption of Quercetin, which makes it more effective than ordinary forms in promoting better immune, heart, and skin health!*

WHAT MAKES PUREWAY-C® A BETTER FORM OF VITAMIN C?
Pureway-C® is a clinically tested form of Vitamin C shown to outperform other leading forms of Vitamin C by offering better immune protection, better free radical scavenging, and better antioxidant support.*
Research studies in vitro and in humans show that Pureway-C® is more rapidly absorbed and more highly retained in the human cells resulting in faster, more beneficial effects than other brands.*
Pureway-C® combines ascorbic acid with several types of lipid metabolites (fats derived from vegetable sources) and bioflavonoids (antioxidants) to enhance bioavailability. Lipid metabolites, function as carriers of the ascorbic acid to increase intestinal absorption, allowing Vitamin C to enter the cells quickly for enhanced cellular uptake. Bioflavonoids greatly contribute to the antioxidant capability of Pureway-C® as well as enhanced absorption in the intestinal tract.*
5 WAYS PUREWAY-C® IS A SUPERIOR FORM OF VITAMIN C...
1. More highly retained in the human body by 233%.
2. Able to stimulate healthy neurons 12 times more rapidly.
3. Offers more efficient immune protection from toxins by 2.5 times.
4. Able to reduce plasma levels of C-reactive protein 64% higher and Oxidized LDL by 83% higher (human clinical studies preformed).
5. A 12% higher antioxidant effect and 11% higher free radical scavenging activity.
WHY IS LYSINE INCLUDED?
Lysine, or L-Lysine, is an essential amino acid, which means that it is necessary for human health but cannot be made by the body. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein. Lysine is important for proper growth, and it plays an essential role in the production of carnitine; a nutrient responsible for converting fatty acids into energy. Lysine appears to help the body absorb and conserve calcium, and it plays an important role in the formation of collagen.*
Lysine supports a healthy immune system response. Taking Lysine supplements can support recovery time and reduce the chance of recurrent health challenges. Lysine also plays a role in supporting arterial health. Lysine is one component of a protocol proposed by Linus Pauling to promote optimal heart and immune health.*
WHY IS QUERCETIN INCLUDED?
Quercetin (as Quercefit®) is a clinically tested bioflavonoid that is complimentary to Vitamin C and uses phytosome technology to enhance absorption to further promote immune function, heart health, and skin health!*
THE TWO MOST IMPORTANT WORDS FOR ENHANCED IMMUNE RESPONSE: VITAMIN C*

Premium Vitamin C & L-Lysine
WHY DO WE NEED VITAMIN C?
Unlike most mammals who produce their own Vitamin C in very high amounts (and even more under stress), humans do not have the ability to manufacture their own Vitamin C. Interestingly, we have 3 out of the 4 enzymes needed to make Vitamin C, but the 4th enzyme is turned off — the gene that made the 4th enzyme mutated and is no longer expressed in humans. Therefore, we must obtain Vitamin C through our diet and/or a Vitamin C supplement in order to support proper health.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN THE BODY IS RUNNING LOW ON VITAMIN C?
According to the National Institutes of Health, too little Vitamin C can lead to serious health challenges. Low Vitamin C levels can affect several body parts and systems, including:
Hair health and texture*
Gum and dental health*
Dermal (skin) health and texture*
Red blood cell health*
Immune system response*
CAN YOU REPLENISH A DEFICIENCY TAKING ONLY THE RECOMMENDED DAILY ALLOWANCE (RDA)?
No. The RDA is the minimum required to avoid scurvy, not the maximum needed for good health. As in all cases, "deficiency" is not something that's digital – meaning you either have it or you don't – it's a matter of degrees. Researchers are proving the many ways in which "sub-clinical scurvy" (meaning you are deficient but not immediately about to die) is significantly detrimental to health and makes the body vulnerable to various kinds of damage.*

- Rapidly absorbed.*
- Proven to provide higher plasma and cellular levels of Vitamin C, allowing for optimal utilization.*
- Delivers 1 gram of Vitamin C per serving.

Vitamin C 101:
Vitamin C is required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. The body needs vitamin C to make its most abundant protein, which is collagen. Collagen is the cellular "glue" that holds the skin, blood vessels, arteries, muscles, bones, tendons and ligaments together. This is especially important in the artery walls, which must expand and contract with each beat of the heart.*
Vitamin C is also essential for wound healing – both obvious, traumatic wounds and chronic wounds at the cellular level (such as free radical damage and inflammation). In fact, vitamin C is arguably the most effective and versatile antioxidant there is, being used by literally every system of the body to perform critical, health-maintaining tasks.*
Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin. Water-soluble vitamins cannot be stored in the body, meaning the body must have a continuous stream of this nutrient to maintain necessary levels for optimal health. Unlike most mammals, humans do not have the ability to make their own vitamin C. Therefore, we must obtain vitamin C through our diet or through a vitamin C supplement. Vitamin C is found in a variety of fruits and vegetables, however, larger amounts of this nutrient (greater than what can be obtained though food alone) can have wide-ranging health benefits.*
In addition to being required for the synthesis of collagen, vitamin C also plays an important role in the synthesis of the neurotransmitter, norepinephrine. Neurotransmitters are critical to brain function and are known to affect mood. Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of carnitine, a small molecule that is essential for the transport of fat to cellular organelles called mitochondria (known as "cellular power plants"), for conversion to energy.*
Recent research also suggests that vitamin C is involved in the metabolism of cholesterol to bile acids, which may have implications for maintaining healthy blood cholesterol levels.
Also, the more vitamin C cells are exposed to, the more they absorb until they are saturated. Optimal health is supported when each cell in the body is saturated with multi-functional vitamin C.
Vitamin C is also a highly effective antioxidant. Even in small amounts vitamin C can protect indispensable molecules in the body, such as proteins, lipids (fats), carbohydrates, and nucleic acids (DNA and RNA) from damage by free radicals and reactive oxygen species that can be generated during normal metabolism as well as through exposure to daily stresses and environmental factors.
Vitamin C may also be able to regenerate other antioxidants such as vitamin E. Normal metabolism and daily "wear and tear" on the body produces oxygen free radicals, which have degenerative effects on the body. When your body is weakened, free radicals are produced at an exponentially higher rate. Antioxidants like vitamin C neutralize free radicals and protect cells and tissues of all kinds against oxidative damage, promoting wellness on multiple levels.
