In the bottle of 90 Vitamin C Softgels, there are a total of 45 grams Vitamin C.
Vitamin C is the most used supplement in the world. There is good reason for this, as the science behind the many benefits of vitamin C is solid. Dr. Svent Gyorgi and Dr. Linus Pauling performed innumerable experiments proving that man, unlike most animals, is dependent upon vitamin C for a healthy existence.

Vitamin C is necessary for metabolism. Vitamin C is needed for the production of the neurotransmitter substances dopamine and epinephrine; the stress hormones. Vitamin C helps thyroid hormone production. This hormone-supplementing role of Vitamin C makes it important to the nervous system to help it manage stress, reduce fatigue and slow metabolism. This attribute makes vitamin C important for anti-aging and life extension treatments. Vitamin C also helps in cholesterol metabolism.

Vitamin C is important for the function of the immune system. It has been shown to activate neutrophils, the predominant white blood cells that work against invading pathogens. Vitamin C stimulates the production of lymphocytes, the white blood cells that are of primary importance to the immune system. Vitamin C stimulates interferon production which causes the immune system to respond to viral invaders.

Vitamin C, in moderate doses, is absorbed well in the intestines. It is put to use quickly by the body and is out of the blood stream within 4 hours of ingestion. Vitamin C is used more quickly by some people than by others. In all people, external factors can cause vitamin C to be used up more quickly. These factors include:

Situations of stress
Smoking and alcohol consumption
Illness and fever
viral infections
medications including: antibiotics, cortisone, aspirin, pain medicines, sulfa drugs
environmental toxins including: DDT, petroleum products, carbon monoxide, and
heavy metals

To summarize; the positive effects of vitamin C on the body are:

enhancing immune function
preventative antioxidant effect
collagen formation
adrenal support
action against viral infectious agents (colds, influenza, hepatitis, herpes, mononucleosis, shingles, measles)
action against bacterial and fungal infections
reduce inflammation (cystitis, bronchitis, prostatitis, bursitis, arthritis, asthma)
aid in kidney function
post surgical recovery
recovery from injuries
recovery from addiction including, drugs, alcohol and nicotine
natural laxative
anemia - aids in iron absorption
preventing arteriosclerosis - slows platelet aggregation, raises level of good HDL
