Quick C 500 features 500 mg of Vitamin C, a water soluble vitamin with extremely important benefits on more than 300 body functions. Among its many applications, Vitamin C is known to help support the immunity system, lower cholesterol and hypertension, prevent atherosclerosis, cataracts (an eye condition) and even some forms of cancer, and fight common colds. Vitamin C is most popular for its powerful antioxidant properties. Its oxidative stress fighting effects makes it a potential preventive ingredient in conditions most affected by free radical damage such as cognitive decline, neurodegenerative disease, and certain types of cancer. Vitamin C assists with the production of Vitamin E, another important antioxidant and nutrient.
Another benefit investigated for the vitamin is fighting stress, because the vitamin is critical for the adrenal function. Vitamin C is found in high concentrations in the adrenal glands and brain tissues. During stressful periods (illness, emotional stress, environmental stress, etc), large amounts of Vitamin C go into the urinary excretion; thus vitamin C supplementary intake (500-1,000 mg a day) during stressful times is recommended.
In case extremely large quantities of vitamin C are taken, symptoms such as nausea, headache, insomnia, vomiting or heartburn may appear. The manufacturer recommends taking one caplet a day. There are no reviews posted online referencing Quick C 500.
- Like all Vitamin C supplements, this too is relatively cheap (approximately $15 for a month’s supply)
- Vitamin C is essential to normal body functioning, especially during stressful times
- The formula may carry a money back guarantee (offered only by some distributors)
- There are no reviews referencing the formula posted online
- There is no scientific proof that the formula works, nor are there arguments to support some of the advertisement claims (fast-melt delivery system)
The manufacturer of Quick C 500 claims this formula is a fast-melt Vitamin C source which allows the body to absorb it faster and more efficiently, but fails to mention any studies or bring any evidence to support this claim. Aside from this unsupported claim, the formula seems to bear little differentiation from other C Vitamin supplements. Additionally, there are no consumer reviews or experiences documented online relating to the formula. This is why it is very difficult to rule against its effectiveness and superiority/inferiority as compared to alternatives. Although Vitamin C is essential to numerous body functions, supplementation should be done rationally.
