Vitamin C Food Supplement
with citrus bioflavonoids, indicated to strengthen the immune system and protect the skin. Time release formula.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is an essential soluble vitamin for nutritional mechanisms.
In fact, it is crucial for the regulation of many biochemical reactions in the body: it participates in collagen formation, bone, teeth, blood vessel and connective tissue maintenance and development, corticosteroid hormone and antibody synthesis. It is also necessary for the absorption of dietary iron.
With its antioxidant action, it is also important for many immune system mechanisms.
Vitamin C works synergistically with bioflavonoids, compounds that favour its absorption and prevent its oxidation.
With its particular t/r (time release) formula, this product allows gradual release of vitamin C into the body over a period of 12 hours.
Vitamin C: one of the most important vitamins our body is unable to synthesise and, thus, needs to take with the diet. Moreover, it does not build up in the body, and must be taken regularly to maintain constant blood levels.
Bioflavonoids: polyphenol substances present in many foodstuffs, they feature health-promoting properties, such as cardiovascular, vasoprotective, anti-inflammatory and neuroprotective actions.
This product, with the presence of microspheres, allows the gradual release of this water soluble vitamin in the body.

We must thank Linus Pauling, the twice Nobel prize winner for chemistry who extensively studied the role of vitamin C in the body, exploring its possible therapeutic functions and supporting its high dosage intake.
The antioxidant action on the cardiovascular system has beneficial effects on cholesterol and triglyceride levels, blood pressure, circulation and vascular health.
Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis and enhances skin surface hydration. Its concentration diminishes by up to 70% with exposure to sunlight and to pollution.
The same is true for smoking and passive smoking. It seems that every cigarette can “consume” 25 mg of vitamin C, and that smokers present a deficiency that is 4% higher than non-smokers.
