Vitamin C plays an important role in human health since it forms part of the antioxidant defence system, helping protect cells against oxidative damage, and reducing the negative effects this process has on the development of certain chronic pathologies associated with cardiovascular disease and neurological disorders, bone and joint pathology, diabetes and cancer. Specifically, when it comes to cardiovascular health, it impedes the oxidation of LDL cholesterol and prevents oxidative damage to blood vessel walls. Its benefits extend to a reduction of arterial pressure, decreased risk of coagulation and reinforcement of vascular and capillary endothelia. Along with other antioxidants, it has a prominent role in ocular health as it delays progression to age-related macular degeneration and vision loss.
It supports the immune system by increasing defence cells and has proven to be effective at reducing the symptoms and duration of the common cold. It also has a positive effect on connective tissue, as it intervenes in the formation of collagen, structural fibres that are essential for proper bone, teeth, cartilage, gum, skin and blood vessel function. Vitamin C is also involved in the synthesis of neurotransmitters and peptide hormones for proper nervous system and psychological function.
Vitamin C contributes to proper cell energy production, reducing tiredness and fatigue and improving iron absorption from plant sources, making it especially important for vegetarians and vegans. It is also associated with better sports performance, since vitamin C is a co-factor of carnitine and increases cardiac capacity. It favours proper immune response during and after intense physical exercise.
Our formulation offers a superior form of vitamin C since it includes an ascorbate-mineral and ascorbyl palmitate complex for better absorption, and is non-acidifying so it is mild on the stomach. It also provides calcium, magnesium, potassium, zinc, manganese, selenium and sodium, making it a good source of electrolytes
