What does vitamin C do?
Vitamin C plays many important roles within the body. It is needed for the normal functioning of our nervous system, and our immune system, including during and after intense physical exercise. Vitamin C is essential for the formation of collagen, the most abundant protein in the connective tissues of the body, which is necessary for the normal formation and functioning of the blood vessels, the bones, teeth and gums, and the skin. It also helps with the production of energy, and helps to reduce tiredness and fatigue. It is also an important antioxidant, helping to protect cells from oxidative damage, which can contribute to premature aging. Finally, it helps to increase iron absorption, which is a nutrient we are often low or deficient in.
Why is vitamin C especially important for athletes?
Intense activity can impair the ability of the immune system to work normally and can increase the number of free radicals. Vitamin C can help athletes by maintaining the immune system during and after intense exercise and helping to protect cells from oxidative stress caused by free radicals.
Why is a time-release formula important?
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin, meaning you will only absorb so much at a time and is rapidly lost from the body. It’s best taken in regular small amounts so a time-released formula means slower release of vitamin C over time, which will maximise the amount you absorb from each dose.
What are bioflavonoids and why are they important?
Bioflavonoids are a complex group of substances that occur with vitamin C in nature. Bioflavonoids are known to improve the uptake of vitamin C when added in supplements so it’s always best to take them together.
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.
