- Increases collagen synthesis
- Promotes healthy blood vessels
- Based on Linus Pauling’s research on high-dose vitamin C
AOR’s Ortho C+ provides proper doses of the nutrients necessary for helping maintain and support cardiovascular health. Ortho C+ represents a true orthomolecular formulation with testimonials that indicate amazing results.
Maintaining heart health is imperative for a long, healthy life. Although the steps to achieve heart health are relatively simple, the western lifestyle makes it difficult for the majority of adults to stay on track. Physical activity, balanced nutrition, and low levels of stress all help maintain a healthy heart. The right supplement can also help support cardiovascular health.
Medicinal research over time has led to the development of a wide variety of supplements. In 1992, research conducted by Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath lead to a revolutionary discovery showing the inverse relationship between the internal production of lipoprotein (a) and vitamin C. Rath described it as the scurvy-heart disease connection. They stated that Lp(a) can act as a surrogate for vitamin C and protect the integrity of the blood vessels in times that the human body is experiencing a vitamin C deficiency, which may develop into scurvy.
AOR’s Ortho C+ contains an unprecedented combination of nutrients to keep blood vessels strong and support arterial health. Ortho C+ is ideal for those looking for a high-dose vitamin C formula or electrolyte formula, or for those who are concerned about their cardiovascular health.
Ortho C+ is formulated based on the research of Linus Pauling and Matthias Rath on lipoprotein(a) [Lp(a)]. Ortho C+ contains vitamin C, calcium, and magnesium.*
