Vitamin C is one of the most popular and recognizable vitamins among all micro and macro elements. It is no wonder, as its adequate concentration in the blood serum contributes to a number of key benefits to your organisms.
First of all vitamin C is an antioxidant - the substance effectively eliminating oxidative stress, which is intensifying in stressful situations, and also during heavy, intensive trainings. Vitamin C is essential for the synthesis of collagen - a structural protein, carnitine – a transporting substance and many neurotransmitters. A very important feature is the sealing of the blood vessels, which enhances more efficient transport of biologically active compounds.
Vitamin C supports the immune system, helps the absorption of iron and improves lipid metabolism. Research shows that this vitamin can also be supportive in reducing the level of histamine, and thus has an effective anti-allergic effect.
