Ascorbic Acid, Vitamin C

Vitamin C is a hydrosoluble and thermolabile vitamin. It is a safe and powerful antioxidant essential micronutrient. Vitamin C is usually supplemented by its efficiency in protecting the immune system from common colds and it is also related to anticancer effects.

What are Vitamin C benefits?

Vitamin C, also known as L ascorbic acid, is one of the vitamins considered essential for the human body, playing a vital role in the functioning of the body. Water-soluble, vitamin C is also a very popular food supplement due to its antioxidant properties, safety, and low price. In addition, according to studies, vitamin C can reduce the duration of a cold by 8 to 14 percent in any population, when consumed as a daily preventive measure or at the onset of a cold. It’s worth mentioning that vitamin C can be found in a variety of fruits and vegetables, including oranges, kiwi fruit, broccoli, strawberries, bell peppers, kale, and spinach. Among the main researched benefits of vitamin C are: reducing risks related to chronic diseases and heart diseases, reducing uric acid levels in the blood, helping to prevent gout attacks, helping to prevent iron deficiency, increasing the body’s immunity, and others.

Bone and Joint Health Vitamin C and Bone and Joint Health

Bone and joint health are deeply affected by vitamins, hormones and minerals, such as calcium, vitamin D and thyroid hormones. Supplements that affect bone and joint health help their structure and strength, in addition to contributing to the healthy balance of involved nutraceuticals.
  • Bone Density

    Bone density or bone mineral density (BMD) is the amount of bone mineral in bone tissue. The measurement of bone mineral density is used in medicine as an indirect indicator of osteoporosis and risk of fractures.

Energy and Mood Vitamin C and Energy and Mood

Energy and mood are associated with several external and internal factors. Hormone release, brain chemical balance, nutrient metabolism, and several other elements alter the way the body and mind respond to daily activities. The compounds that benefit energy and mood are the ones that help in the balance of all these factors.

Immunity Vitamin C and Immunity

The immune system is made up of cells, tissues and organs that act in the organism's defense against the harmful effects of external microorganisms. The supplements indicated for immunity act as strengthening agents of this system, increasing the antibodies production and, consequently, its defense activity.
  • Immune Booster

    The immune system is responsible for defense against infectious agents, and is composed of leukocytes, macrophages, and lymphocytes. When immunity levels are low, the body is more likely to become infected with viruses, bacteria, and others. People who are easily infected can have low immunity for various reasons, such as family history diseases, poor diet, or absorption difficulties in some body function. Maintaining the intake of substances that strengthen immunity is to prevent diseases and prepare the body for any possible infection. To do this, it is important to turn your attention to what is ingested, exercise habits, and supplementation.
