Poly C®

Poly C is USANA’s proprietary vitamin C blend. It’s a unique combination of calcium, potassium, magnesium, and zinc mineral ascorbates (mineral salts). This mixture has been shown to increase and maintain higher levels of vitamin C in the blood than equal amounts of ascorbic acid alone. *

Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that must be provided by the diet, because your body can’t make it naturally. As a source of vitamin C, Poly C offers a number of important benefits:

  • Antioxidant activity neutralizes damage caused by free radicals to maintain cellular health*
  • Helps your body use iron*
  • Supports collagen synthesis (a major structural protein in the body) to help maintain healthy skin, gums, cartilage, blood vessels, muscle, and bones*
  • Supports immune function*
  • Supports eye health*

Your body can absorb approximately 500 mg of vitamin C at one time. And, levels of vitamin C in your blood begin to decline after about five hours (as you can see in the chart above). So, spread your Poly C across two or more supplement doses during the day to optimize absorption and maintain protective levels.*

USANA Nutritionals with Poly C

Poly C is included in a number of USANA supplement formulas, including the CellSentials™, Proflavanol®, and Booster C 600™.

Some USANA markets also offer a stand-alone Poly C supplement, which features the proprietary vitamin C blend plus citrus bioflavonoids, rutin, and quercetin. Together, these antioxidants provide powerful defense against oxidative damage to support overall health and wellness.*
