The new NRF VitC 1000 Travel pack is a convenient method of taking vitamin C when out and about.  Useful for holiday or business trips, they can easily be slipped into pockets or travel bags and take up no room at all.

Although generally identified with fighting colds and flu, Vitamin C has wide reaching health benefits and is required for many physiological functions in the body such as biosynthesis of collagen, L carnitine and some very important neurotransmitters.  It is an important physiological antioxidant, plays an important role in immune function as well as in the absorption of some forms of iron and is also involved in protein metabolism.   Another benefit of Vitamin C is that when taken after an evening of over indulgence,  it can help to replenish the body’s Vitamin C and detoxify alcohol, therefore minimizing tissue damage and hangover discomfort.  (Dr Ann Marie  Helminsteine  Ph D).
