Why Choose Ultra Potent Vitamin C 1000?

Ultra Potent Vitamin C 1000 is a high potency vitamin C formula from Metagenics. It has been developed to offer a way to take a high dose of vitamin C without the associated gastrointestinal upset that may be experienced with ascorbic acid. Ultra Potent Vitamin C 1000 offers vitamin C as mineral ascorbates, including calcium, magnesium and potassium ascorbate. These buffered forms help to prevent GI upset, meaning you can safely take this 1000mg dose wihtout worrying about unpleasant side effects.

Ultra Potent C 1000 also provides a metabolite support system, including cysteine, glutathione and a citrus bioflavonoid complex which has been added to the formula. Preliminary scientific research suggesting that this proprietary blend of metabolites may enhance the bioavailability of the formulation meaning your body can absorb more vitamin C and it is more readily available for the body to use.

Bioflavonoids included in the citrus bioflavonoid complex have demonstrated potent activity in protecting cells from oxidative stress. Oxidative stress can occur when free radicals damage cells and this can lead to premature ageing. Bioflavonoids are also known to potentiate the antioxidant activity of vitamin C.

 

What is vitamin C needed for?

Vitamin C provides valuable and essential protection to all cells from oxidative stress and damage.

Our immune system needs adequate levels of vitamin C in order to function properly.

Vitamin C is a crucial component of all collagen formation in the body. Collagen is the main structural protein found in skin and other connective tissue in the body. As vitamin C supports collagen formation, it is important for the normal function of cartilage, blood vessels, bones, skin, gums and teeth.

Vitamin C supports the reduction of tiredness and fatigue as it is involved in normal energy-yielding metabolism.

Vitamin C is also essential for the proper functioning of our nervous system, and helps to maintain normal psychological function.

Vitamin C increases our iron absorption.

Vitamin C also helps to "recycle" vitamin E - meaning it helps to preserve levels of vitamin E in cell membranes.

 

What are bioflavonoids?

Bioflavonoids, also known as flavonoids, are a group of plant compounds. There are between 4000 and 6000 varieties known. In studies, bioflavonoids have demonstrated potent activity protecting cells from oxidative stress. Bioflavonoids are also known to potentiate the antioxidant activity of vitamin C.

 

How does vitamin C help iron absorption?

Vitamin C increases non-haem (non-meat) iron absorption. Iron has an important role in the body as it contributes to normal oxygen transport and is needed for the formation of red blood cells and haemoglobin.

 

How does vitamin C support the immune system?

More than 50 years of research has shown vitamin C to be crucial in supporting various aspects of the immune system, particularly immune cell function, in both the innate (non-specific) and adaptive (specific) immune systems. Vitamin C cannot be synthesised by humans and so we must consume it every day. Vitamin C may be particularly important for athletes or those who do extreme or prolonged exercise, as they experience weakened immune resistance following strenuous exercise.
