What is Brilliant C Plus?
Brilliant C Plus is our vision of a revolutionary Immune Support complex that can be safely combined with other supplements of anyone’s daily regimen. We created this simple, but fundamental immune complex to include Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids, Zinc and L-Lysine. Brilliant C Plus should benefit many people who are looking for a “missing link” to support immune system and provide powerful antioxidant benefits.
Vitamin C, also known as Ascorbic Acid, is a water-soluble vitamin naturally present in some foods, and available as a dietary supplement. Humans are unable to produce vitamin C, therefore it is considered as a necessary dietary complement. Vitamin C is a very potent antioxidant and free radicals scavenger. It supports the body’s immune system by enhancing while blood cell activity and function. Vitamin C assists in the absorption of iron and formation of red blood cells. It is required for production and maintenance of collagen, carnitine, steroids and many other essential elements. And the list of Vitamin C properties goes on.
Bioflavonoids are compounds naturally occurring in citrus fruits and black currant. Bioflavonoids used in Brilliant C Plus consist of rutin, citrus limonium, citrus sinensis and citrus paradisi. Bioflavonoids are free radical scavengers that enhance absorption and action of Vitamin C. Bioflavonoids support blood circulation and healthy cell function; support immune system during allergy onset and viral infection; help to decrease inflammation process during inflammatory conditions such as arthritis. Bioflavonoids can also protect your skin against damaging effects of stress, pollution and natural aging processes. They are also famous for their abilities to prevent and reverse wrinkles, diminish appearance of age spots and fight spider veins.1-4 In other words, bioflavonoids help to “rejuvenate from the inside out.”
Zinc is another “powerhouse” that plays an important role in supporting body’s defense mechanism. Zinc is connected to the normal absorption of B vitamins. It is an essential element of two dozens of enzymes involved in metabolism and digestion. Zinc enhances healthy tissue development and collagen formation. Zinc is also vital for reproductive development and contributes to healthy prostate function.
L-Lysine is one of twenty amino acids that are used as a building block of protein. Combined with Vitamin C, Bioflavonoids and Zinc, L-Lysine creates an ultimate body’s natural defense complex. L-Lysine is used as a preventative element against viruses, especially herpes simplex that often results in cold sores. Taking L-Lysine on regular basis prevents your body from viral infections, and becomes very beneficial during flu seasons. It is particularly helpful in healthy gum and lip tissue. In addition, L-Lysine is famous for its abilities to improve athletic performance..
