Air pollution, tobacco smoke, ozone, radiation, dietary fats and heavy exercise can produce unstable substances in the body called free radicals. Research has established that excess free radicals can damage healthy cells.
ACES provides four natural antioxidants (vitamin A, C and E plus selenium) to help protect the body from the harmful effects of free radicals.
The sources of nutrients in ACES are chosen with care. Beta-Carotene (pro-Vitamin A) is derived from tiny plants, D. salina algae, which also supply minor amounts of other carotenoids such as alpha carotene, cryptoxanthin, zeaxanthin, and lutein. Calcium ascorbate is a non-acidic form of Vitamin C which is gentle in the stomach. Vitamin E is 100% natural-source, the most biologically active form, from soy. Selenium is organically bound with an essential nutrient (methionine) to promote assimilation.
Take two soft gels daily at mealtime.
Sunflower oil, beeswax, lecithin (soybeans), palm fruit stearin, glyceryl monostearate. Soft Gel: Beef gelatin, glycerin, water, carob.
Wheat-free. Milk-free. Preservative-free. Yeast-free. Gluten-free.
Keep bottle tightly closed. Store away from heat and moisture.
Color variations may occur.

We've been taking this for about ten years, as needed. We use it when we start to feel like we're getting a cold. It has the right combo of vitamins and minerals to combat infection, etc. because when you're getting sick you don't want to be taking supplements with iron in them, etc. (Iron can "feed" an infection.) Though studies have shown that beta-carrotene is not really helpful, they studied synthetic b-c, while this contains b-c from sea algae, which I believe is a much better source and also contains other trace nutrients. The C in this one is easy on the stomach, and the E is the best type: d-alpha, not dl-alpha. (Carlson is great at making E; that's how they made a name for themselves, that and their great fish oil.) The selenium content is just right so that if you take two of these per day you'll get the max amount of selenium, plus a conservative but decent amount of C, plus a good amount of E and beta carotene. Works for us!

my son is taking this along with AKN Skincare. They are working well together for his acne. Capsules are quite large.

I don't know what makes Carlson better than other brands, but I know these vitamins are effective and readily absorbed. They are worth paying a little more for, but buying them through iHerb helps keep them cost-effective.

lots of doctors recommend this product for some reason. It has a stellar reputation. I buy all my stuff from iherb. They ship fast and the prices are good. : )

Aces is one of the best heart healthy vitamins around not to be out done by the incredible company that sells them iHerb. I order and it's as if they personally deliver it. It's usually NEXT DAY. I'm sold on both.
