Vitamin C – The Infection Fighter


Do you know why you need to add Vitamin C to your diet?

Vitamin C boosts the immune system, this we all know, but it also has many other benefits:

  • Powerful antioxidant
  • Helps the body absorb iron & calcium
  • Maintains cell integrity
  • Protects against free radicals 
  • Natural antihistamine, helps allergies
  • Reduces risk of heart disease
  • Reduces risk of cataracts
  • Increases resistance to ligament and tendon injuries


How to know if you are deficient in Vitamin C:

  • Experience stress
  • Chronic infections
  • Frequent cold & flu
  • Allergies & asthma
  • Bruise easily & bleeding gums
  • Nosebleeds
  • Varicose & spider veins
  • Slow healing wounds & fractures
  • Shortness of breath
  • Swollen glands
  • Anemia


Your body is capable of many things, but it can’t make Vitamin C. So we must get it from our diets, but getting enough Vitamin C is nearly impossible from food alone. We must supplement, especially during the cold & flu season.

It is very important to choose the right Vitamin C. 

Synthetic Vitamin C is worthless as your body doesn’t know what to do with it. It doesn’t recognize the made up chemical compound since it isn’t the real thing. 

Some “natural” forms of Vitamin C can contain toxic chemicals and they often don’t contain the other compounds found in nature that go along with it. Therefore the benefits are limited.

Why we choose Shaklee’s Vitamin C is because it is natural, it’s naturally manufactured to retain all the nutrients found in nature, including the Vitamin C and contains no synthetic chemicals or additives.

Available in Sustained Release and Chewable formulas, we have two great varieties to meet your needs:


  • High-potency Vitamin C
  • Proprietary sustained-release system that delivers the Vitamin C equivalent of one-and-a-half oranges every hour for five hours
  • Helps maintain natural antioxidant defenses, cell integrity, and the health of eyes, teeth, gums, bones, muscles and blood vessels*



  • Ideal for children or adults who have difficulty swallowing tablets.
  • Great citrus flavor


Now that you realize how important Vitamin C is, be sure you have it in your arsenal to fight against the germs and viruses this season!
