Formulated with Vitamin C

Dogs can make their own vitamin C, but if a dog is stressed, sick or in pain their bodies' output of vitamin C can quickly be depleted.

Studies found that animals supplemented with vitamin C have stronger immune systems, show greater resistance to disease, and have an improved recovery from illness or injury.

NutriFlex™ vitamin C

Promotes joint health

Vitamin C works synergistically with collagen supplementation and further promotes the body's own collagen production to improve joint health (strength and lubrication).

NutriFlex™ vitamin C

Powerful antioxidant

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant. It works with vitamin E and helps regenerate vitamin E and protect against oxidative stress.

NutriFlex™ vitamin C

Immune booster

Vitamin C improves immune function by promoting enhanced white blood cell function and activity. It also increases the blood levels of interferon (the body's natural antiviral and anti-cancer compound) and antibodies (proteins that destroy foreign material such as bacteria, viruses, and toxins).

NutriFlex™ vitamin C

Gentle on the gut

NutriFlex™ is fortified with vitamin C as calcium ascorbate. Calcium ascorbate is a mineral ascorbate and buffered form of vitamin C. It is pH-neutral and is easily absorbed by the intestinal tract and more gentle on the gut than regular vitamin C.

Vitamin C Superboost?

In addition to supplementation with NutriFlex™ Collagen Advanced you may want to provide additional natural foods that are rich in vitamin C (and bioflavonoids) to your dog for added fortification:

  • Broccoli
  • Kale
  • Brussel Sprouts
  • Sweet Red Bell Pepper
  • Spinach
  • Pineapple
  • Papaya
  • Strawberries

Important: Vitamin C is water soluble so you cannot overdose your dog with vitamin C because any excessive amount is excreted via the kidneys.
