ITEM: 66204Immune C by PN -2 Liquid for Children & Elderly Strong Antioxidant, Supports Healthy Immune System (liquid 4oz.)Vitamin C is an antioxidant that helps support the immune system and helps neutralize free radicals in the body. Vitamin C is an essential micronutrient for humans.  It is a potent antioxidant and a cofactor for a family of biosynthetic and gene regulatory enzymes. Vitamin C contributes to immune defense by supporting various cellular functions of both the innate and adaptive immune system. Vitamin C deficiency results in impaired immunity and higher susceptibility to infections. In turn, infections significantly impact on vitamin C levels due to enhanced inflammation and metabolic requirements. Furthermore, supplementation with vitamin C appears to be able to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections.
Health Risks from Excessive Vitamin C

Vitamin C has low toxicity and is not believed to cause serious adverse effects at high intakes [8]. The most common complaints are diarrhea, nausea, abdominal cramps, and other gastrointestinal disturbances due to the osmotic effect of unabsorbed vitamin C in the gastrointestinal tract [4, 8]. The Food and Nutrition Board (FNB) at the Institute of Medicine (IOM) of the National Academies (formerly National Academy of Sciences) [8] has established Tolerable Upper Limits (UL)s for vitamin C that apply to both food and supplement intakes (Table 3) [8]. Long-term intakes of vitamin C above the UL may increase the risk of adverse health effects. The ULs do not apply to individuals receiving vitamin C for medical treatment, but such individuals should be under the care of a physician [8]. https://ods.od.nih.gov/factsheets/VitaminC-HealthProfessional/
