Vitamin C Powder

You’ve probably heard that you should up your vitamin C intake when you’re sick, but do you know why that is? Vitamin C (or ascorbic acid as it’s also known) is crucial for normal immune function in mammals (humans and dogs alike).

Vitamin C is important for assisting immune system function, helping to neutralize free radicals in their bodies, protecting cells from damage, reducing inflammation and cognitive ageing, promoting collagen for joint and bone health, and asks as an antihistamine.
Vitamin C is one of the best remedies for your dog’s allergies. Vitamin C acts as an antihistamine, fight inflammation, and any other allergic reactions your dog might be experiencing. It can also prevents future allergic reactions, which is extremely helpful for dogs who frequently develop such conditions.
During periods of illness and stress, it may be best to supplement with Vitamin C.
