Ascorbic Acid is one of the most important water-soluble vitamins. Unfortunately, the human body is unable to produce vitamin C in its own body as most plants and animals do. According to nutritional norms for the Polish population, the daily requirement for vitamin C is 90 mg for an adult male and 75 mg for a woman. In some circumstances, the need for this substance is dramatically increasing. Under the influence of such factors as stress, intense training, illness or tobacco and alcohol abuse, the body needs to supply higher doses of vitamin C. Due to the fact that vitamin C is very unstable and easily destroyed by oxygen and high temperature, its content in products during heat treatment usually undergoes high losses. Therefore, in addition to the correct diet rich in fruits and vegetables, it is recommended to use additional supplementation to prevent the dangerous effects of vitamin C deficiency in the body.

It is the basis of the structure of the 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 intense training, effectively protects against infections. Another advantage of this vitamin is the improvement of iron absorption and the improvement of oxygen transport to the cells, which translates into an improvement in muscle condition. The effective absorption of oxygen extends the working time of the muscles and delays the anaerobic breathing phase of the muscles causing the formation of sourdough. In addition, vitamin C effectively leaches lactic acid from the muscles and therefore accelerates the regeneration process after training. In addition, ascorbic acid affects the release of male hormones, including testosterone, which is desirable by athletes. Vitamin C effectively protects against oxidative stress which mainly promotes the development of diabetes.
