Vitamin C (L-ascorbic acid) is an essential component of the huge amount of biochemical reactions that occur in our body. Levorotatory, dextrorotary, natural, synthetic – which form of vitamin C is effective and safe?
The main source of vitamin C should be a diet rich in vegetables and fruits that contain this substance. The richest natural sources of vitamin C include: acerola (contains the largest amount of natural vitamin C), rose petals, chili pepper, guava, yellow pepper, black currant, parsley, red pepper, brussels sprouts, broccoli. However, in the case of chronic and systemic diseases, it may turn out that the demand for vitamin C increases so drastically that satisfying the needs in a natural way is very difficult. In this situation, dietary supplements come in handy, which in a short time can provide large amounts of vitamins and microelements.
Important body functions in which vitamin C is essential: protection against free radicals, proper functioning of the immune system, allergic reactions, protection against cancer, protection of the cardiovascular system, iron absorption, collagen synthesis, synthesis of steroid hormones, carnitine and adrenaline.
What is vitamin “Life-C”?
LifePharm has developed unique additives for natural vitamin C, which make the absorption of such a substance more effective and the time of staying in the body is prolonged. Studies have shown that this “type” of vitamin C is characterized by a strengthened action especially in relation to the nervous system, immune system and regeneration processes.
Nerve cells consume an extremely high amount of vitamin C, compared to other cells in our body. Vitamin C protects the nervous system and contributes to its optimal functioning. The presence of this vitamin is necessary during the differentiation and maturation of nerve cells. In addition, vitamin C prolongs the life span of nerve cells. Because nerve cells are involved in the transmission of nervous system signals, the optimal functioning of nerve cells contributes to the improvement of memory and cognitive function, especially in older people. L-ascorbic acid also plays an important role in the synthesis of dopamine (the hormone of happiness) and norepinephrine, which is both a hormone and an important neurotransmitter.
Due to the fact that vitamin C participates in the synthesis of collagen, it is believed that it also improves the mechanism of wound healing
Characteristic features of vitamin “Life-C”
- Better absorption after ingestion.
- A longer stay in the bloodstream.
- Increased markers of a balanced immune system.
- Protection of cells against degeneration caused by free radicals.
Vitamin “Life-C” is one of the ingredients of IMMUNE+++ – a dietary supplement that also contains a composition of bioflavonoids and polyphenols from berries and herbs, as well as a mix of mushrooms that are traditionally used to strengthen the immune system.
