Vitamin C is a popular vitamin that is most widely known for its ability to boost immune health. It’s a potent antioxidant with free radical scavenging activity that helps combat cellular damage linked to oxidative stress.
This beneficial property enhances overall health, including brain function and mental well-being. My Spectrum Heroes™ Super C Powder provides potent servings of this essential vitamin for sustained brain support.
Over the years, medical experts have determined that low levels of this vitamin are one of the contributing factors for disorders such as autism and attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD). This means that nutrient supplementation, particularly with vitamin C, plays a critical role in cognitive health for children with such disorders.
Vitamin C supports the body during immune challenges as it boosts the formation and function of white blood cells as well as natural killer cells. These immune system guardians accumulate in response to high concentrations of vitamin C.
This key vitamin also protects these cell types from oxidative damage. In the absence of its potent antioxidant activity, the immune system may become weak or even overactive.
Poor immunity appears to contribute to the presence of traits such as hyperactivity, worry, behavioral problems, or psychosocial impairments that are linked to ADHD and ASD. Accordingly, micronutrient supplementation that includes vitamin C for ADHD or autism efficiently improves emotional regulation, aggressive behavior, and general functioning.
With My Spectrum Heroes™ Super C Powder, there’s no need to be concerned about whether or not sufficient amounts of vitamin C are being sustained in the body.
My Spectrum Heroes™ Super C Powder is carefully balanced with calcium, potassium, and magnesium to gently deliver a high concentration of vitamin C without causing major gastrointestinal upset. With it's delicious natural lemonade flavor and easy to administer powder form, this product is one of our most popular!
