NowFoods Vitamin C Crystals vitamin C for immunity
Ascorbic acid is one of the most important water-soluble vitamins. Unfortunately, the human body is not able to produce vitamin C on its own in its body as most plants and animals do. According to the dietary standards for the Polish population, the daily requirement for vitamin C is 90 mg for an adult man and 75 mg for a woman. Under certain circumstances, the need for this substance increases dramatically. Under the influence of such factors as stress, intense training, illness or abuse of tobacco and alcohol, the body needs a supply of higher doses of vitamin C. Due to the fact that vitamin C is very unstable and is easily destroyed under the influence of oxygen and high temperatures, its content in products during heat treatment is usually subject to large losses. Therefore, in addition to a proper diet rich in fruits and vegetables, additional supplementation is recommended to prevent the dangerous effects of vitamin C deficiency in the body.
The dietary supplement from Now Foods is vitamin C in powder form, easily soluble in water.

How does ascorbic acid work?
Ascorbic acid plays an important role in the formation of collagen, which accounts for about 1/3 of the total amount of protein in our body. It forms the basis of skin, bones, cartilage, tendons, blood vessels and valves in the heart. Ascorbic acid is a powerful antioxidant, accelerates the breakdown of harmful substances formed under the influence of intensive training, and effectively protects against infections. Another advantage of this vitamin is to improve iron absorption and improve oxygen transport to cells, which translates unequivocally into improved muscle condition. Efficient oxygen uptake prolongs the working time of muscles and delays the stage of anaerobic respiration of muscles that causes soreness. In addition, vitamin C effectively flushes out lactic acid from the muscles, thus speeding up the recovery process after training. In addition, ascorbic acid affects the release of male hormones including testosterone which is desirable for athletes.
