Aliness Vitamin C 1000 mg Plus is a dietary supplement containing vitamin C in the form of a mixture of L-ascorbic acid and L-ascorbate sodium in a 1:1 ratio, enriched with citrus bioflavonoids, hesperidin, rutin, and acerola obtained from a bitter orange extract (Citrus aurantium). Bioflavonoids support the action and bioavailability of vitamin C.
The vitamin C found in the preparation has been produced in compliance with the requirements of the European pharmacopeia, which means that the substance is characterized by the highest quality and purity.
Vitamin C in the form of mineral salt (sodium L-ascorbate) is less acidic than L-ascorbic acid, thanks to which it has a smaller effect on the mucous membrane of the stomach, which reduces the possible risk of stomach discomfort associated with long-term use of L-ascorbic acid alone.
Vitamin C belongs to the group of water-soluble vitamins. The synthesis of this vitamin is impossible in the human body, so it must be regularly supplied with the diet. Vitamin C has a multi-directional, positive effect on health. It shows a strong antioxidant activity; it is a cofactor in many biochemical reactions (including in the synthesis of collagen, carnitine, adrenaline) as well as it increases the absorption of iron from plant foods and acts neuroprotective.
Acerola (Malpighia glabra) is a shrub whose fruits are a rich source of vitamin C (it contains as much as 30 times more vitamin C than lemons!) and bioflavonoid compounds, such as those belonging to quercetin and malvidin anthocyanins.
Bioflavonoids are natural, polyphenolic plant compounds with proven antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, anti-aggregating, sealing properties, and many others. Bioflavonoids are of great importance in the prevention of numerous civilization diseases. There are many epidemiological studies pointing to the relation between the consumption of bioflavonoids and the reduction of morbidity and mortality due to cardiovascular diseases.
Hesperidin is a flavonoid compound belonging to the flavanone group, abundantly found in the skin and membrane of citrus fruits. In addition to its antioxidant activity, it has anti-inflammatory, analgesic and antibacterial effects. Together with rutin, it is widely used in phytotherapy of cardiovascular diseases. It seals blood vessels, increases the vein wall tension, supports the fight against leg edema caused by water retention in the body. It also has a multidirectional anti-atherosclerotic effect – it prevents LDL oxidation and has the ability to inhibit HMG-CoA reductase, leading to lower cholesterol levels.
Rutin is a flavonoid glycoside belonging to flavonoids. As mentioned above, it is particularly used in cardiovascular ailments, mainly in case of chronic venous insufficiency, leg swelling or varicose veins. Rutin has documented antioxidant, anticoagulant, and vasoprotective properties. Like hesperidin, it inhibits HMG-CoA reductase.
Individual demand for vitamin C
Vitamin C is a vitamin for which the daily requirement is the greatest (1 mg/kg body weight in an adult person). This demand is increasing, among others, in pregnant and breastfeeding women, in smokers, under stress, and in various medical condition.
Protection against free radicals
Vitamin C is an effective scavenger of free radicals – molecules with an unpaired electron, striving to balance their charge, and thus extremely chemically reactive. Free radicals are able to pick up electrons from proteins, lipids, and nucleic acids, i.e. components that build cellular structures. The activity of free radicals may induce damage and result in the development of numerous diseases. For example, reactive oxygen species (ROS) classified as free radicals, if present in excess, have a carcinogenic effect.
Vitamin C, as an antioxidant, is able to protect cellular structures against the action of free radicals, reducing or preventing the formation of oxidative stress and supporting the functioning of the body's internal antioxidant systems.
Optimal synthesis of collagen and improvement of skin condition
Vitamin C is a natural remedy for many skin problems. It has anti-wrinkle properties, improves skin hydration, helps in dermatological conditions (including acne, AD), affects faster wound healing and participates in the regulation of epidermal cell differentiation.
Vitamin C promotes collagen synthesis, for example through participation in proline hydroxylation, which is one of the phases of collagen synthesis. It also has the ability to inhibit metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) – a collagen-degrading enzyme. The right level of collagen in the dermis is crucial for maintaining the proper skin barrier, elasticity, and firmness of the skin. It was shown that vitamin C deficiency resulted in decreased collagen synthesis and its cross-linking.
Vitamin C protects and slows down photoaging of the skin. It protects against oxidative stress induced by UVA radiation, preventing photodamage of keratinocytes. The UV radiation is the main component of the oxidative stress that affects the skin. Exposure of the skin to this radiation causes generation of free radicals and pyrimidine dimers that induce skin damage, negatively affecting its appearance.
In summary, Aliness Vitamin C 1000 mg Plus is a natural food supplement that supports the body's protection against the effects of oxidative stress and is an element of pro-health prophylaxis. The product is recommended to improve skin condition, strengthen blood vessels, support immunity, in a diet low in antioxidants and plant diet (due to the risk of iron deficiency) and during periods of severe physical or psychological stress.
In order to increase the effectiveness of combating skin problems, it is also worth to complement with vitamin B5 supplementation.
Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron from plant products, so it is worth taking it with a meal containing vegetable sources of iron (e.g. spinach, parsley, oatmeal).

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Ascorbic acid – vitamin C. Its biologically active form is the L-isomer, which negatively rotates the polarised light, so that it is a dextroisomer (laevorotatory vitamin C does not exist). It is a strong antioxidant; it reduces the amounts of free radicals, which reduces oxidative stress, a factor leading to cell apoptosis, which is why it is indicated to be a cause for premature ageing.
It supports the immune system functions and increases body system immunity. It is an essential element of the collagen synthesis path, which is why it positively affects the condition of connective tissue. Hence, it promotes also wound healing and increases the durability of capillary vessel. It is involved in transformations of tyrosine and carnitine as well as of some nutrients, so that it affects metabolism. It can also have an impact on the nervous system functions, as it reduces mental fatigue.
Higher supply of vitamin C is especially recommended in the periods of more intensive body system burden, after infections and in order to accelerate regeneration. The indications for increased supply of the vitamin are also hard physical work or intensive trainings.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
