Alkalizing Vitamin C is Dr. Cabral's personal go-to powder for high dosage use. Each scoop contains approximately 2.5g and easily mixes with water or your favorite beverage. Dr. Cabral's Alkalizing Vitamin C comes in a refreshing lemon flavor that literally revolutionizes the former "buffered vitamin c" sour flavor profile.
VITAMIN C BENEFITS†
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin most widely known for its role in supporting immune health. However, it also helps in these areas:
- Provides potent antioxidant protection
- Combats cellular damage
- Reduces free radicals caused by oxidative stress
- Supports overall immunity
- Needed for proper detoxification
- Rebuilds muscle tissue by supporting collagen repair
- Maintains healthy ligaments, tendons and joints
- Balances healthy inflammation
Dr. Cabral's Alkalizing Vitamin C powder provides all of those benefits and is balanced with calcium, magnesium and potassium to gently deliver high-concentration Vitamin C while at the same time reducing the potential of gastrointestinal upset.
WHY YOU NEED VITAMIN C†
Vitamin C's role in immune enhancement has been strongly evidenced in supplementation research to increase natural killer cell activity, lymphocyte proliferation and immune balance.1 Vitamin C is also a potent antioxidant, acting to neutralize free radical damage to cells, including DNA, lipids and proteins. As a free radical neutralizing agent, Vitamin C readily donates electrons to unstable molecules and breaks the chain of free radical damage to cells and tissues.2 Vitamin C is also involved in the synthesis of collagen, carnitine and neurotransmitters.2-4 The vitamin is considered essential to humans, and while most mammals are able to synthesize Vitamin C, humans cannot. As a result, exposure to smoke, pollution, radiation, heavy metal exposure and high-stress lifestyles all increase the body's requirement for Vitamin C.
THE DANGERS OF VITAMIN C DEFICIENCY†
Severe Vitamin C deficiency has been known for many centuries as scurvy, a condition characterized by subcutaneous bleeding, poor wound closure, bruising easily, hair and tooth loss, and joint pain or swelling.2 While scurvy is rare in the majority of today's population, current lifestyle factors raise the requirement for Vitamin C. Adequate intake and retention is necessary to maintain healthy Vitamin C status in the body.
Research has shown Vitamin C to have a strong relationship with cardiovascular health. In 2004, a pooled analysis of nine prospective cohort studies found that supplemental vitamin C intake (>400 mg/day for a mean of 10 years) supported cardiovascular health.5 A meta-analysis of 13 randomized controlled trials (RCTs) assessed the effect of Vitamin C supplementation on blood fats among 549 subjects, aged 48-82 years of age. Subjects received Vitamin C supplements or placebo at doses ranging from 500 to 2,000 mg/day for 4 to 24 weeks. Overall, Vitamin C supplementation had a significant impact on maintaining healthy blood fats. In addition, cross-sectional studies have indicated that plasma Vitamin C concentration helps maintain healthy blood pressure levels in both men and women.7-9
IMMUNE FUNCTION & ANTIOXIDANT SUPPORT†
Vitamin C supplementation has been studied for more than six decades for its role in supporting the body during immune challenges. It has been shown to stimulate both the production10,11 and function12,13 of white blood cells, especially neutrophils, lymphocytes and phagocytes. These immune guardians have been shown to accumulate high concentrations of Vitamin C, which can protect these cell types from oxidative damage.14,15 Through its potent antioxidant functions, Vitamin C has been shown to protect white blood cells from self-inflicted oxidative damage.16
SKIN & BEAUTY HEALTH†
The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C and its role in collagen synthesis make Vitamin C vital to skin health. Keratinocytes have a high capacity for Vitamin C transport, to compensate for limited blood flow to the epidermis.18,19 Vitamin C's role in normal tissue repair and recovery may include promoting keratinocyte differentiation,20,21 stimulating the formation of the epidermal barrier and re-establishing the stratum corneum, the outermost layer of the epidermis.22 Higher intakes of dietary Vitamin C have been correlated with a decreased risk of dry skin.23

ADVANCED HISTPRO SUPPORT:
DO YOU SUFFER FROM
- Histamines or hives
- Itchy skin or eyes
- Red rashy skin patches
- Sinus congestion
- Supports Immune Balance in Hypersensitive Individuals
- Supports Sinus and Respiratory Health
- Promotes Normal Viscosity of Mucus
- Clears Nasal Passages
HistPro is a targeted blend of flavonoids, antioxidants, proteolytic enzymes and botanicals designed to provide comprehensive support for seasonal challenges caused by common environmental allergens.
HistPro includes quercetin, a powerful flavonoid, to support healthy histamine levels. Bromelain enhances the absorption of quercetin and supports mucosal tissue health. Stinging nettles leaf balance hyper-immune response and N-acetyl cysteine clear the airways by promoting normal viscosity of mucus.
This powerful combination actively promotes healthy nasal and sinus passages for individuals with elevated histamine and respiratory irritation. Also available in convenient blister packs.
TARGETED FUNCTIONAL MEDICINE INGREDIENTS
Quercetin is a biologically active flavonoid antioxidant that is widely distributed in plants including oak trees, onions and tea. Quercetin has strong antioxidant activity and has been shown to support immune health by mediating the release of inflammatory compounds including leukotrienes and prostaglandins. [1,2] Quercetin is known for its ability to stabilize mast cells, diminishing the release of histamine, the compound known to cause hypersensitivity reactions during seasonal changes.
STINGING NETTLES LEAF†
Urtica dioica, commonly known as stinging nettles, is a plant that has been shown to balance immune response, specifically in the airways and nasal passages.
Studies have shown that the extract of stinging nettles leaf balances a variety of inflammatory activities that affect respiratory health. Stinging nettles leaf controls mast-cell degranulation, prostaglandin formation, and histamine action all contributing to a balanced inflammatory response.
Bromelain is a plant enzyme naturally found on the stem and fruit of the pineapple plant. Bromelain is a proteolytic enzyme that aids in in the breakdown of large protein complexes, including antigenic compounds, and has been shown to enhance the absorption of quercetin.
Bromelain has been shown to reduce circulating allergenic protein complexes associated with hyper-immune sensitivity and seasonal discomfort.
N-acetyl cysteine (NAC) is an amino acid precursor to one of the most important antioxidants in the body, glutathione.  Both glutathione and NAC help reduce the viscosity of the mucus allowing for clearing of the airways and improved respiratory health. [9,10]
Vitamin C cannot be synthesized by humans and is therefore an essential nutrient that must be consumed in the diet. Among its numerous health-promoting properties, vitamin C is an essential vitamin that supports the immune system and is also a potent antioxidant.
When the body is under a significant amount of stress, both emotional and environmental, vitamin C is excreted rapidly. Vitamin C has many immune boosting properties, but is distinctively beneficial for individuals with seasonal discomfort because of its ability to deactivate histamine. [11,12]
