Many scientific research and medical studies have confirmed Vitamin C’s key role in collagen formation and repair‚ immunity function‚ joint health‚ enhanced hormone production, antioxidant protection‚ production of energy‚ detoxification, reduce high blood pressure levels and more. Being Vitamin C’s pure form‚ Potent C Guard helps to improve our production of hormones and bodily functions whenever necessary‚ and it aids our bodies to adapt better to several conditions. Due to Vitamin C being water-soluble‚ this vital nutrient isn’t stored in our bodies for later use. This can be seen both as a negative and positive fact. Because our bodies do not store huge amounts of Vitamin C‚ it would be quite hard for us to overdose. But this also means we have to make sure receiving a steady flow of this crucial vitamin in our diets in order to stay energised and healthy.

Everybody is different and therefore also needs different Vitamin C amounts. The levels we need depend on our stress levels‚ exposure to alkaline reserve and poisons. The most accurate estimate of our Vitamin C demands can be figured out by looking at our diets and exposure to stress. Obviously, our health care practitioners can also recommend the amounts we might need. The L-ascorbate form Ancient Purity offers here has been revealed being the most effective Vitamin C form, backed up by countless peer-reviewed outcome researches. Please see our ‘References’ section for abundant scientific evidence! So let's try and explain as much as we can in a single web page.

PERQUE Potent C Guard
 is produced with an exclusive, triple recrystallisation process. This innovative technique creates a product with unprecedented purity and bioactivity.

ASCORBATE AND BLOOD PRESSURE... Buffered Ascorbate (vitamin C): Blood pressure reduction:

PERQUE Potent C Guard is your safer, more effective choice. Obesity, alcohol consumption, physical inactivity, and a high-fat/ protein/sugar diet can induce high blood pressure, in part through insulin resistance (Syndrome X). The greatest bene t comes from full tissue saturation of fully reduced and fully buffered ascorbate.*

Perque Potent C Benefits are Based On

Perque Potent C Guard protects delicate endothelial cells (Endothelial cells form a single cell layer that lines all blood vessels and regulates exchanges between the bloodstream and the surrounding tissues. Signals from endothelial cells organise the growth and development of connective tissue cells that form the surrounding layers of the blood-vessel wall) that line blood vessels from toxic damage and free radical.

Potent C Guard might increase nitrous oxide (Nature’s tiny vessel relaxation molecule) thus reducing high blood pressure levels via an enhanced and unique method called, biopterin action.

Potent C Guard induces collagen production. Collagen is a fibrous, hard, and insoluble protein that makes up about 33% protein in our body. In most collagens, the molecules are packed together to form long, thin fibrils. These act as supporting structures and anchor cells to each other. They give the skin strength and elasticity.

We mentioned it a few times already but it is so extremely important. Perque Potent C Guard is effective at reducing the body's burden of toxic minerals such as lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, and nickel. This action occurs both by decreasing uptake of toxic minerals from the intestine and by increasing renal and stool excretion of toxic minerals.

Potent C is a Natural Solution

Potent C Guard Vitamin C… Closing Thoughts

There is not a single doubt, our bodies need Vitamin C! Most of us can get enough of this vital mineral from the food we consume, but supplementing your healthy diet may also have great health benefits. Every serving of Perque Potent C Guard boasts 3.2 grams of fully-buffered Ascorbate (Another term for Vitamin C) as well as a perfect balance of the most important minerals including: calcium, potassium, magnesium and zinc. There’s plenty of research revealing that millions of Americans, Australians and Europeans (mainly adults) may be lacking in one or even more of these significant minerals. This is often because of our fast modern life’s stress, illness, inferior foods and environmental poisons. 

Perque Potent C Guard improves hormone production and function as necessary, and it aids the body adapting better. In addition, it is important to take the amount of Ascorbate needed to keep a sufficient supply in the cells. This varies based on levels of distress, toxins, acute and delayed allergy reactions, and cell buffering and alkaline reserve. Plenty of scientific and medical literature has confirmed Potent C Guard’s key part in immune system function, collagen repair and formation, joint and bone function, energy production, antioxidant protection and function, and detoxification.

“Vitamin C is the world’s best natural antibiotic, antiviral, antitoxin and antihistamine. This book’s recurring emphasis on vitamin C might suggest that I am offering a song with only one verse. Not so. As English literature concentrates on Shakespeare, so orthomolecular (megavitamin) therapy concentrates on vitamin C. Let the greats be given their due. The importance of vitamin C cannot be overemphasised.” ― Andrew Saul, Fire Your Doctor!: How to Be Independently Healthy
