Vitamin C has an antioxidant action, stimulates the immune system, supports the formation of collagen, promotes the reabsorption of plant-derived iron. Natural vitamin C is abundant in acerola and dog rose.
The essential functions of vitamin C
- Vitamin C has an antioxidant action , stimulates the immune system, supports the formation of collagen, promotes the reabsorption of plant-derived iron and is an anti-tumor
- Vitamin C intervenes in the synthesis of connective tissue .
- The immune system needs ascorbic acid .
- Vitamin C. is useful for the synthesis of carnitine, and for the formation of thyroxine .
- L ‘ ascorbic acid falling within the copper iron metabolism
- In the endocrine system it favors the metabolism of oxytocin, vasopressin and cholecystokinin.
- Ascorbic acid is involved in keeping the microsomal systems intact (cytochrome P 450 dependent)
- Intervenes in the conversion of cholesterol into bile salts
- People with diabetes have a lower availability of this vitamin
Which Vitamin C to choose? Natural or Synthetic?
Vitamin C is certainly vitally important for the immune system as we have highlighted in this article.
The advantages of natural Vitamin C:
- It has an important use factor on the part of the body, in fact it is made up of 2 types C1 and C2 which complement each other and improve their use and absorption. Only the C1 is present in the summary one. It is found in high quantities in the ACEROLA-ROSA CANINA FRUTTI-OLIVELLO SPINOSO.
- Natural vitamin C is often associated with the presence of other vitamins , for example the wild rose, one of the natural sources of Vitamin C, also contains vitamins A, B1, B2, E, P, K, PP. Acerola also contains B6, B1 and A, flavonoids and minerals (iron, calcium, phosphorus, potassium and magnesium). Bioflavonoids are powerful antioxidants and increase the beneficial effect of vitamin C.
- At the vibrational energy level , as we explained in this article, natural derivatives, if not treated with aggressive chemical processes, have a higher vibrational energy than an artificial synthetic product.
How much Vitamin C does the body need?
The recommended daily dose (RDA) of vitamin C. is 60 mg per day . This quantity has been established as the minimum dose necessary to avoid contracting deficiency diseases.
Quite different is the optimal daily dose which includes the quantities ingested with the diet and supplements. This value is 2 g of vitamin C. per day. This is the minimum dose that guarantees an optimal level of vitamin C. (adult male). Vitamin C. is particularly tolerated by the human organism and in case of overdose, the worst contraindications that can occur, is a softening of the stools. In this case it is sufficient to reduce the quantity or increase the number of hires. Moreover unlike the other vitamins, its intake does not risk diminishing or altering the absorption of the other vitamins (an event that occurs for the B group vitamins.) Vitamin C. does not stay long in the body (6 HOURS ABOUT ), and for this reason it is necessary and recommended, take it several times during the day.
