Buffered C-Complex Powder Buffered C-Complex Powder

Now Foods Buffered C-Complex Powder is a dietary supplement in the form of powder intended for dissolving in water or your favourite juice. The preparation contains the buffered form of vitamin C (calcium ascorbate), characterised by higher pH, which means it is less acidic, and in turn easier on gastric membranes. Thanks to that, the supplement is better tolerated by people with gastrointestinal sensitivity.

Additionally, the preparation contains citrus bioflavonoids, powdered rose hips, and powdered acerola, which combined with buffered vitamin C constitute a unique complex with many health-promoting properties. Using the supplement will, among other effects, improve the functioning of the immune system, eliminate the consequences of the activity of free radicals, stimulate collagen production, enhance lipid metabolism, and efficiently eliminate oxidative stress caused by, for example, intensive training.

Buffered vitamin C (usually calcium or sodium ascorbate) is known for a much milder effect on the mucous membranes in the stomach and the rest of the digestive system (no irritation) than pure ascorbic acid. Low vitamin C pH can lead to gastrointestinal disorders. The buffered form of vitamin C is better tolerated by the digestive system and will help to prevent digestive discomfort. 

Research shows that taking even large amounts of buffered vitamin C does not have any negative consequences in the digestive system, unlike pure ascorbic acid.

Vitamin C is an organic chemical compound with antioxidant properties. It is a water-soluble vitamin and a glucose derivative. Ascorbic acid performs many important, even crucial functions in the human organism, which have been described below.

Citrus bioflavonoids exhibit synergic activity with vitamin C. The substances are characterised by anti-inflammatory and antioxidant activity. The role of bioflavonoids includes regulating blood pressure, reducing swelling, and enhancing the functioning of the circulatory system, which can directly translate into improved physical capacity and, consequently, make it possible to train even harder.

Optimised immune system function
Although scientific discoveries made so far clearly demonstrate that vitamin C is not exactly as effective in treating colds as commonly believed, it does have great effect on the human immune system. Vitamin C promotes immune system function, increasing the ability of the organism to fight pathogens. That way it reduces the symptoms of a cold, but it can also reduce its risk.

Participation in collagen biosynthesis
Collagen is the main protein in connective tissue, and its task is strengthening it and giving it flexibility. It is a structural element of teeth, bones, nails, skin, cartilages, blood vessels, and even internal organs. One of the substrates necessary for collagen synthesis is vitamin C, which is why its deficiency can lead to many problems. Paying attention to the right supply of the vitamin is worth the effort, especially when struggling with join pains or when your skin is not flexible enough.

Oxidative stress reduction
As a powerful antioxidant, vitamin C is a perfect way to fight free radicals in the organism. Oxidative stress is an overwhelmingly common problem among people who live intensive lives, including athletes. Uncontrolled oxidative stress is believed to be one of potential reasons of cancer and other lifestyle diseases, as well as accelerated aging processes. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant, which potentially makes it an extremely effective part of the antioxidant mechanism that neutralises excess free radicals and oxidative stress.

Support for nervous system function
Vitamin C can have the ability to cross the blood-brain barrier, thanks to which it can potentially have an effect on the nervous system. It is involved in, for example, the enzymatic processes connected with cognitive functions, and its proper levels in the organism can have an effect on ensuring proper intellectual capacity. It has been demonstrated that vitamin C can inhibit the activity of acetylcholinesterase, that is the enzyme that breaks down acetylcholine, which plays the role of a crucial neurotransmitter responsible for psychophysical performance. Moreover, thanks to its antioxidant properties, vitamin C also exhibits neuroprotective properties.

Regulation of energy substrate metabolism
Ascorbic acid can also affect carbohydrate metabolism. Its proper levels are also connected with optimising insulin secretion, that is ensuring stable production without sudden spikes. That way it inhibits the risk of insulin-dependent disorders of carbohydrate metabolism. Apart from that, vitamin C can also affect lipid metabolism, as it is believed to be able to reduce their peroxidation.

To sum up, NOW Buffered C-Complex Powder is an advanced preparation constituting a source of vitamin C and enabling its efficient supplementation. The buffered form of ascorbic acid makes it possible to reduce adverse reactions of the digestive system, and the addition of bioflavonoids maximises the product’s efficacy, making it a perfect way to supplement vitamin C deficiencies.

Vitamin C

Information


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.

Calcium

Information

Calcium (element chem. symbol Ca, atomic no. 20, the group of alkaline earth metals) is the basic building substance of bones and teeth, in which stored is 99% of the element, in the form of hydroxylapatite. When building bones and teeth, phosphorus is very important in the right proportion. It is a base-forming element and activator of many enzymes (ATPase) necessary to release the energy of ATP. It has a significant effect on blood clotting and regulates blood pressure and neuromuscular conductivity. Thanks to the reduced permeability of cell membranes, it soothes the symptoms of food allergies. Calcium is actively involved in the metabolism of iron interacts with vitamins A, C and D and phosphorus, magnesium. Natural source of calcium are animal products (dairy products, sardines, salmon, sprats eaten with bones) and plant products (nuts, soybeans, sunflower seeds). Absorption takes place in the small intestine (less in the colon), it has an effect on the level of lactose, insoluble fibre, organic acids, alkalinity (low pH). The best absorption have organic compounds (lactates, amino acid chelates etc.). Obstructing the absorption of calcium is caused by: phytic acid and oxalic acid as well as excess fat. Scientific studies have confirmed that the combination of calcium, magnesium, boron and vitamin D in dose 3 mg / 24h effectively prevent osteoporosis. Supplements on the market are both mono-preparation supplements (enriched with vitamin D3) and multi-component supplements, available at www.muscle-zone.pl.
Calcium deficiency disorders manifested in the construction of the bones (osteoporosis) and iron metabolism. The symptoms are: rickets, cramps and muscle tremor, osteoporosis.
Excess result
ing from an overdose of calcium supplements containing vitamin D3 for children and adults overdose of calcium (hypercalcemia). Symptoms of hypercalcemia are: lack of appetite, vomiting and constipation.
The dosage administered in various publications
are inconsistent: 800 - 1000 mg / 24 h (100 - 500 mg / 24h)

Citrus Bioflavonoids

Information

Citrus bioflavonoids (flavanones) - are found in citrus fruits (oranges and bitter grapefruit) and contain naringenin and naringenin with a strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory action and enhancing metabolism of a number of substances. Increase immunity and strengthen the walls of blood vessels. Reduce the secretion of cortisol, while increasing the norepinephrine hormone allowing for the reduction of body fat. Citrus flavonoids are an ingredient of supplements in the category of "health and beauty", vitaminizing supplements, thermogenics, herbal blends supporting the functioning of the endocrine system.


 

Dog rose (Rosa canina)

Information

Dog rose (Rosa canina), mainly known for the high content of vitamin C (one of the leaders among European plants), containing in its composition also polyphenols, which considerably facilitate its absorption. It is a commonly known, valuable ingredient used in natural medicine.

One of the active substances contained in the plant are flavonoids, which influence increasing elasticity of blood vessels. Carotenoids, i.e. lycopene, demonstrating antioxidant effect, contributes to the elimination of free radicals from the organism, thanks to which it slows down aging processes.

Drugs and vitamin supplements are produced from dog rose, as apart from vitamin C, it contains many other vitamins, e.g. A, E, K, B-group vitamins. Therefore, it helps in the problems with the digestive system, scurvy and inflammations and it also plays an important role in supporting the work of the immune system.

Acerola

Information


Acerola (Barbados cherry) is a rich source of ascorbic acid (vitamin C), also contains B vitamins, vitamin A, bioflavonoids and carotenoids. Vitamin C contained in the acerola stimulates the production of collagen, which is important for the proper functioning of the locomotor system, accelerating their regeneration during convalescence after injuries and contusions. . It strengthens the immune and cardiovascular system (improving the condition of blood vessels), is a potent antioxidant. It shows a slight diuretic effect, and relieves disorders of gastrointestinal and digestive tract. It is essential in the synthesis of hormones and transmitters, neutralizes free radicals and increases the absorption of non-haem iron. It is in a composition of the complexes multivitamin supplements, supporting immune system and in nutrients, as component valued for its high biological activity. Available at: www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: calculated by vitamin C: 30-500 mg daily.
