During the cold and flu season many people look for natural ways to boost their immune system and stay healthy. While it is widely accepted that vitamin C is important for healthy immune system function, the benefits of its combination with the amino acid lysine are not commonly known.
Scientists at the Dr. Rath Research Institute in California have published a new study which demonstrates that a consistent daily supplementation with vitamin C may help protect against heart disease. The study shows that irregular intakes of this essential micronutrient do not achieve the same beneficial effect. Published in the International Journal of Cardiovascular Research, the study further supports the importance of a consistent, sufficient intake of vitamin C in ensuring an optimum profile of blood risk factors, vascular wall integrity, and optimal cardiovascular health.
