Caro-C is full of food ingredients highly potent in vitamins A and C. Among other benefits, these two vitamins promote cellular structures that rejuvenate the skin and keep it healthy.
Over the years, more and more people have come to recognize vitamin A as being highly beneficial for aging and acne-prone skin — retinol, the name perhaps more commonly associated with vitamin A, has become renowned for its ability to support skin health, heal wounds, and aid in cell turnover. Generally, retinol is used alone, as an isolate or synthetic nutrient, without all of the helper nutrients that are naturally attached to it when it’s in its whole food form — which is why, in isolate or synthetic form, vitamin A is rendered so much less effective and has a propensity to cause side effects.
The same goes for vitamin C. When vitamin C is consumed in isolated or synthetic form, the body is incapable of reaping its full benefits. This is such a shame because not only can vitamin C help the skin defend itself against sun damage, but it decreases overall damage to skin cells, helps in wound healing, and stimulates the body’s natural collagen production. Plus, it should come as no surprise to those who reach for vitamin-C foods at the onset of a cold that what’s good for protecting the body from illness is also good at protecting the skin; the skin is often very much a reflection of the overall toxicity of the body — when the body is unhealthy, skin health often suffers too.
Both vitamins A and C also work wonders to ensure hormonal health. Hormones, the chemicals that are commonly overlooked in their role to support the skin, dictate how fast skin ages, how affected it is by its environment, and how it responds to stress. Vitamins A and C revitalize hormones and bring them back into balance.
NutriPlex Formulas Caro-C offers both vitamins A and C — among other skin-promoting nutrients, like carotenoids and bioflavonoids — in whole food form, so that they can be used to their full potential and without incurring side effects (as isolated and synthetic vitamins are prone to do).
