BioTrace Phyto C is a rich and natural food based form of vitamin C sourced from the berries of the amla tree (emblica officinalis). Traditionally used for bowel health, amla may not have the bowel intolerance issues associated with other vitamin C supplements. One amla berry contains as much vitamin C as two oranges and is also rich in nutrients such as calcium, magnesium, iron, zinc, B vitamins and antioxidants. Amla is a popular remedy in ayurvedic medicine to support energy, immunity, longevity and optimal health.
An increase in free radical generation or an impaired antioxidant mechanism is known to result in oxidative stress. Oxidative stress is often implicated in poor immune system function. Glutathione is an important antioxidant that supports the body’s defences against reactive oxygen species (ROS) like free radicals, peroxides and heavy metals. Scientific research suggests that amla may support healthy glutathione levels.
Amla is commonly used in traditional ayurvedic medicine to support healthy brain and nervous system function. Scientific research has demonstrated amla’s ability to support the brain’s defences against oxidative stress.
