Vitamin C is a water soluble nutrient vital to tissue repair and immune support. The tissue repair includes muscles, tendons, ligaments as well as the derma (skin). Vitamin C is essential for health in general, it is particularly important to athletes and the actively exercising for support and repair from training that causes connective tissue damage. Weight training and high impact sports in particular, create connective tissue damage. Vitamin C is also important to athletes for its role as an antioxidant, helping to reverse some of the oxidative damage that may occur from exercise. This oxidative damage, caused by free radicals, may contribute to chronic inflammation and possibly injury. Vitamin C supports a healthy immune system and may help to prevent the dip in immune function that can occur post exercise and training.

NutraSport manufacturing standards, product quality & professional verification.
Our collective in-house experience in the nutritional products manufacturing industry, compounding pharmacy and herbal medicine provides us with the background in selecting experienced product manufacturers for our product lines that adhere to the highest standards set forth by the federal government, regulatory and oversight institutions and good manufacturing practices certification organizations. In addition, we inspect and verify allergen claims, ingredient raw material sources and overall label accuracy to ensure you are getting the highest quality product to use safely and effectively.
Natural Products Association (NPA) has always taken a leadership role in promoting quality standards and has developed proactive certification programs for that purpose. NPA was the first organization to offer a third-party GMP certification program for the manufacturing of dietary supplements and dietary ingredients. NPA established GMP standards for dietary supplements in 1999 and updated the standard in 2000. At time of publication, these GMP standards represented industry's best practices and served as the basis of the NPA GMP Certification Program as well as establishing a higher level of control than was currently required by the FDA. In June 2007, the FDA published the final GMP regulation specific to dietary supplements (21 CFR 111). In order to keep the NPA GMP Certification Program relevant and reflect the highest level of industry good manufacturing practices, the NPA GMP Standard has been revised to include all of the FDA GMP requirements of 21 CFR Part 111 and certain requirements from the 2000 version of the NPA GMP standard that exceed requirements of the DFA GMPs, or reflect best industry practices, and/or are necessary for the evaluation of compliance to the NPA GMP standard.

These eight foods account for 90% of the food allergies. This product's "Contains No" statement on all of our product labels is in accordance with the Food Allergen Labeling and Consumer Protection Act (FALCPA) allergen label requirements; a full statement look like this:
"Contains No artificial colors, flavors or preservatives; no wheat, gluten, milk, eggs, peanuts, tree nuts, soy, crustacean shellfish or fish."
