What is Vitamin C and what are its benefits?

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, is a water-soluble vitamin that is essential for human health. Vitamin C plays a key role in many body processes, including the synthesis of collagen, the production of neurotransmitters, and the absorption of iron. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant, which means it helps to protect cells from damage caused by free radicals. Although humans cannot synthesize vitamin C, it is found in many foods, including citrus fruits, tomatoes, and leafy green vegetables. Vitamin C supplements are also available. Research has shown that vitamin C can help to improve immune function, decrease the risk of certain chronic diseases, and promote wound healing. Therefore, ensuring adequate intake of vitamin C is important for maintaining good health.

The difference between regular Vitamin C and Threonic Acid Enhanced Buffered Calcium Ascorbate?

Calcium ascorbate is a buffered form of vitamin C that is less acidic than regular ascorbic acid. This means it is gentler on the stomach and less likely to cause gastrointestinal upset. It is also enhanced with threonic acid, which helps to increase absorption and improve bioavailability. Threonic acid is a water-soluble vitamin C metabolite that has been shown to increase vitamin C levels in the blood. While regular ascorbic acid is still an effective form of vitamin C, calcium ascorbate may be a better choice for those who are looking for a more gentle option.

How Alpha Lipoic Acid helps to regenerate Vitamin C in the body?

Alpha lipoic acid (ALA) is a naturally occurring compound that has a number of important functions in the body. One of its most notable roles is its ability to help regenerate vitamin C. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that plays a key role in supporting the immune system, and it can be quickly depleted by stress and other factors. Fortunately, ALA can help to replenish vitamin C stores. When vitamin C levels are low, ALA helps to recycle it back into an active form, allowing the body to make full use of this important nutrient. As a result, ALA plays an important role in maintaining optimal health and preventing disease.

Bioflavonoids as synergists!

as we know, vitamin C is an important nutrient that provides a wide range of benefits, including supporting the immune system, promoting collagen production, and protecting against oxidative stress. However, Vitamin C is a water-soluble nutrient, which means it cannot be stored by the body for long periods of time. As a result, people need to regularly consume foods or supplements that contain Vitamin C in order to maintain adequate levels. Bioflavonoids are a class of phytonutrients that are found in fruits and vegetables, and they have a number of health benefits of their own. When Bioflavonoids are added to Vitamin C supplements, they help to increase the absorption of Vitamin C and extend its antioxidant activity. In addition, Bioflavonoids have been shown to promote healthy circulation and reduce inflammation. As a result, they can further enhance the benefits of Vitamin C and help people to maintain optimal health.
