Real C

This is the only Vitamin C supplement I give my family, because it is REAL C; most products are made with ascorbic acid, which is NOT natural vitamin C. Ascorbic acid is synthesized to be identical to natural vitamin C, but in synthesis, both an exact replica of natural C and its mirror image (that is, the EXACT OPPOSITE OF REAL VIT C)are produced. The prolonged use of ascorbic acid has been known to cause health problems, particularly with the kidneys, presumably because your body doesn't know what to do with that mirror image of Vit C.

I noticed how much of a difference these made in my mood and energy level when I ran out--after about a week without my B Foods, I started waking up feeling tired and glum. Within a couple days of resuming my two-a-day regimen, I felt energized and cheerful again.

works if you can afford to take enough

This can be a very expensive supplement if you have chronic nasal congestion. We take 3 to 6 pills (depending on if the dose is for me or one of my kids), 3 to 4 times a day to keep congestion at bay. It certainly helps break down sticky, stuffy mucous, but it gets expensive fast, so I save these enzymes for the really bad days, and I watch the kids like a hawk before and after doses to make sure they don't eat anything--your body may use the enzymes for digestion rather than body repair if taken near meals or snacks (we keep food not closer than an hour before and an hour after doses). I take Now Foods NAC as well, which is supposed to help and is much cheaper, but I cannot say one way or another if I really noticed a difference with the addition of NAC (I do NOT give NAC to my children because they have asthma, and NAC can act as a bronchial constrictor--word of warning to anyone interested in that product as well!).
