C-Maxx Vitamin C (30 Day) - 90 capsules
C-MAXX is a unique vitamin C supplement designed to contain a very gentle form of this powerful vitamin. Vitamin C is a very important nutrient, which improves energy levels, mental performance and overall health. Vitamin C is known to strengthen and support the body’s immune system, detoxification process, wound recovery, cardiovascular health, adrenal health and so much more.
Vitamin C is a nutrient that our bodies cannot make and does not store. It must be consumed on a regular basis in the diet for optimal health. Cooking and exposure to light destroys vitamin C in foods. Many health professionals believe North Americans are deficient in vitamin C.
C-MAXX is a powder vitamin C encapsulated crystal product that is superior for many reasons:
√ Maximum potency and absorption due to its six-sided crystalline structure and the use of sodium ascorbate – the most absorbable form of Vitamin C √ Fast action that is easy to digest and gentle on the body (non-acidic / pH neutral) √ Easy to take – simply open a capsule into your favorite juice and mix or take in capsule form with 8 oz of water or favorite juice.
The buffering effect of the sodium ascorbate form allows for the intake of increased levels of vitamin C.
Additional Benefits of Vitamin C
√ Valuable antioxidant
√ Supports healthy aging
√ Promotes healthy skin and gums
√ Improves circulation
√ Boosts immune function
√ Supports lung health
√ Reduces allergic response
√ Improves cardiovascular health
C-MAXX provides 500mg of pure vitamin C crystals in each vegetable capsule. C-MAXX can be taken in the capsule with water or your favorite juice or removed from the capsule and mixed with water or your favorite juice. C-MAXX is an easy, economical and pleasant way to get the vitamin C your body needs.

Safe Ways to Lower Inflammation
Big Pharma is now making a push that cholesterol lowering medications should be used in anyone with signs of inflammation. The Jupitor study (NEJM. VOl 359; 2008) looked at the use of Crestor (a statin drug) in “healthy” individuals who had elevated laboratory tests showing inflammation (via a blood test known as the CRP test). The use of Crestor was reported to decrease CRP by 37%. Inflammation has been thought to be the underlying cause (or one of the underlying causes) of a wide variety of illnesses including heart disease, diabetes, and arthritis. The CRP test is a well-accepted laboratory measure of inflammation.
Unfortunately, inflammation is occurring at epidemic rates in our society. I routinely check my patients for inflammatory markers and I am amazed at the numbers of patients suffering from inflammation markers and inflammatory diseases.
What are the signs of inflammation? Pain, swelling, and redness are the most common signs. A bloated abdomen, fatigue and even brain fog can be related to inflammation. You can see that inflammatory conditions can cause a wide range of problems.
Why do so many suffer from inflammation? I have no doubt that diet is the main cause. Eating a diet full of refined foods markedly increases your chances of developing inflammation. The Standard American Diet (SAD ) ensures your body will be deficient in vital nutrients which prevent and heal inflammatory conditions. Furthermore, failure to drink adequate amounts of water worsens any inflammatory condition.
So, what can you do if you have signs of inflammation? A recent study showed that Vitamin C reduced CRP by 25% versus placebo (Free Rad. Biol. and Med. 46;2009). The authors of this study claimed that the effect of vitamin C was similar to those of statins.
I say, take your vitamin C (2-5,000mg/day), drink adequate amounts of water and eat a diet full of unrefined foods. This is an inexpensive way to treat or avoid getting an inflammatory condition. Furthermore, this therapy is virtually free of adverse effects.
