Protocol for Life Balance™ ProtoSorb™ C is a trademarked formulation containing the Vitamin C metabolite and Threonic Acid which has been shown to enhance uptake of Vitamin C.
This buffered, non-acidic Vitamin C supplement is superior as it also contains Alpha Lipoic Acid, an antioxidant known to help regenerate both Vitamin C and glutathione in the body. The addition of Bioflavonoids as synergists helps to create a well-absorbed, highly effective Vitamin C supplement. Furthermore, studies suggest that Alpha Lipoic Acid may enhance the body‘s utilization of Vitamin C, especially by activating uptake into cells via the glucose transport pathways.
These ingredients work cooperatively with other antioxidants, such as Vitamin E and Coenzyme Q10.* Vitamin C is required for the synthesis of collagen, a structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and bone. Vitamin C also is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine and of L-carnitine, which is required for the transport of fats into the mitochondria of cells.* Vitamin C is best known as a highly effective antioxidant that can protect the body‘s cells and molecules from damage by free radicals. Its role as an antioxidant has tended to obscure its other physiologic functions. This vitamin is required for the synthesis of collagen, a structural component of blood vessels, tendons, ligaments and bone.
Vitamin C also is required for the synthesis of the neurotransmitter norepinephrine, as well as for the production of L-carnitine, which is required for the transport of fats into the mitochondria for beta-oxidation.*

Estrogen-containing contraceptives are known to lower vitamin C levels in plasma and white blood cells; and aspirin can reduce vitamin C absorption. May interact with Coumadin; and at high doses may affect some laboratory tests, such as serum bilirubin, serum creatinine, and the guaiac assay for occult blood. Possible side effects of Lipoic Acid supplementation are allergic reactions affecting the skin, including rashes, hives and itching.
