According to the European Commission, vitamin C helps maintain a healthy immune system during and after intense physical exercise. Also, vitamin C aids normal collagen formation to support healthy bone function, it aids the healthy functioning of the immune system and helps reduce fatigue.

Description

1 tablet = 170 mg of vitamin C, i.e. 212.5% of daily requirements. Take nutritional intake into account.

Ascorbic acid or vitamin C plays a part in the synthesis of blood vessels and muscles and in iron absorption processes.

Vitamin C also contributes to defending the body against infections and protecting blood vessel walls thus preventing cardiovascular disease. It is also essential for the healing of wounds.

Vitamin C requirements increase not only in the event of fractures, infections or anti-cancer treatment, but also depending on lifestyle (intense physical activity, excessive alcohol consumption, taking the contraceptive pill, smoking).

Our vitamin C is natural and therefore bioavailable with guaranteed content!
Our vitamin C is extracted from acerola, a small cherry from South America, which is one of nature's richest fruits in vitamin C. It has been eaten for a long time by the Amazonian Indians who are aware of its stimulating and protective properties.


Detailed information

Vitamin C is essential for body function. You only have to see the effect of a lack of it to be convinced of this! People suffering from vitamin C deficiency, such as sailors who spend months at sea, end up with scurvy. The major symptoms of scurvy are feeling very weak coupled with oedemas and haemorrhaging that can lead to death. To go back to the sailors, they stopped developing scurvy as soon as someone had the idea of adding lemon juice to their daily diet because lemon is a fruit that preserves this precious vitamin well and for a long time under its thick skin!

Vitamin C is of course normally found in fruit and vegetables in varying quantities, but the ultimate content of this very delicate vitamin is not guaranteed. Vitamin C is the most delicate of vitamins; it is sensitive to heat, oxygen in the air and light and should be stored in a dry place. Thus at 20°C, food loses up to 50% of its vitamin C content in one day. Sometimes much more depending on how it is prepared and cooked.

Moreover, the body does not store vitamin C, but eliminates it after several hours.

Stress, smoking, pollution by heavy metals, toxic products and also some pharmaceutical products (pills, aspirins, antibiotics, radiotherapy, chemotherapy, vaccinations) also considerably increase vitamin C requirements. So, in the case of smoking, according to some studies, each cigarette smoked could lead to the immediate consumption of 18 mg of vitamin C! AFFSA therefore recommends a supplement of 20% of vitamin C for smokers who smoke more than 10 cigarettes a day.

In addition to its anti-scurvy effect, vitamin C is an anti-oxidant that captures free radicals, heavy metals and toxic substances in our cells. Vitamin C oxidises (loses its electrons) on contact with these and detoxifies the cells before being expelled by the kidneys into the urine. Thus it combats cellular ageing, due mostly to the accumulation of poisons and is involved in the regeneration of all the body’s organs.

Many doctors have recommended the daily intake of higher doses of vitamin C for preventing attacks on the immune system, supporting anti-cancer treatments and, of course, for protection against ageing for many years.
