Vitamin C is an important water-soluble vitamin which we cannot make in our bodies. We have to get vitamin C from our food and supplements.
We should be getting enough vitamin C from fruit and vegetables in our diet but sadly only one third of men and women are eating the five-a-day fruitand vegetables (National Diet and Nutrition Survey, 2009).
Research has shown that vitamin C is important for immune function and also aids in the manufacture of collagen, which is crucial for bone and skin health. Vitamin C is also involved in glucose metabolism so helps with blood sugar balance.
Research has also shown that people who have good levels of vitamin C burn 30% more fat when doing moderate exercise than those who have low levels. It is thought that when vitamin C levels are low the body slows down the burning off of fat as a safety measure.
Vitamin C is crucial for your adrenal gland function. The more cortisol you make, the more vitamin C you use. Under stress you’ll excrete more vitamin C through urine.
Vitamin C is best taken with bioflavonoids which are found in citrus fruits where they sit in the pith just under the fruit’s skin. Flavonoids are potent antioxidants and can help control inflammation.
To make things easier and more convenient for you I have formulated a special vitamin C supplement and it contains the alkaline form of vitamin C, ascorbate (not ascorbic acid), and also bioflavonoids in the form of bilberry. I have ensured that this vitamin c supplement includes only the highest quality nutrients.
