The Ultra Potent-C 1000 by Metagenics is the same exclusive, patented formula
as Ultra Potent-Cģ 500, but with 1,000 mg of vitamin C per tablet and a higher
potency metabolite support system.
Vitamin C is water-soluble, which simply means that is dissolves in water. It
is absolutely necessary for the body to develop and grow in a normal manner. If
you take too much vitamin C, it simply leaves the body through urine. So you
donít need to worry much about a vitamin C overdose; however, amounts over 2,000
milligrams per day have been known to cause stomach upset and diarrhea. On the
other hand, because any excess leaves the body, it is important to have a
continual supply of this vitamin throughout the day. The body does not store
vitamin C for later use.
Why is Vitamin C Important?
The body uses vitamin C to help grow and repair all of its tissues. It forms
the protein that is used to make skin, tendons, blood vessels and ligaments and
it works to maintain and repair bones, teeth and cartilage. It also helps the
body form scar tissue to repair wounds.
In addition to all these things, vitamin C is one of the few vitamins that
also act as an antioxidant. Antioxidants help protect the body from the
devastating damage that can be caused by free radicals, which are harmful
particles created whenever the body digests food or is exposed to toxins, such
as radiation or tobacco smoke. Most researchers believe that free radicals are
the main cause of visible aging, so keep a constant supply of vitamin C in your
body, if you want to retain your youthful appearance.
But itís not just vanity that propels us to fight free radicals; they are
also implicated in various chronic diseases, such as cancer and heart disease.
For all these reasons, it is important to make sure youíre getting enough
vitamin C daily. One way to do this is by taking this Ultra Potent-C vitamin
supplement by Metagenics.
Vitamin C may very well be best known for its cold remedying abilities, but
research shows that vitamin C supplements and vitamin C-rich foods do not
actually reduce your risk of getting a cold. But donít let that deter you: there
are many other benefits to maintaining healthy levels of this essential vitamin.
Also, you might experience a shorter duration of illness with milder symptoms,
if youíre in the habit of taking vitamin C regularly. Just be sure to that
youíre already taking it when the cold comes on. It hasnít been shown to have
much of an effect after the cold has taken hold.
Vitamin C Deficiency
The most well-known deficiency of vitamin C may very well be the condition
called scurvy Ė but this only happens in extreme cases of deficiency. Actually,
these days, it is most commonly seen in the elderly, if at all. Although you may
not have to worry much about scurvy, you should be concerned about the symptoms
that can present themselves with a lesser deficiency of vitamin C. Such symptoms
are bleeding gums, anemia, dry and splitting hair, bruising easily, gingivitis,
nosebleeds, weight gain, weakened tooth enamel and rough, scaly skin.

Ultra Potent-C 1000
By Wanda from Stanchfield, MN. on March 28, 2012
The local chiropracter introduced me to Ultra Potent-C 1000 by Metagenics. Have been looking for a good Vitamin C supplement for a long time. It has worked without the usual side effect of diarrhea and doesn't appear to be eliminated as some do.
I would recommend this item to a friend.
Haven't had a cold/flu in a while...

Great product, no kidding- haven't caught a cold since I've been taking this. Evidently absorbs well. Doctor reccomended it to me.
