Buffered Vitamin C Powder Buffered Vitamin C Powder

Life Extension Buffered Vitamin C Powder is a powdered dietary supplement to dissolve in water containing buffered ascorbic acid combined with the elements of calcium, magnesium, zinc and potassium, which is less acidic and does not cause intestinal discomfort, thanks to which it may be used by people with sensitive digestive tract. 

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a saccharide derivative soluble in water, which needs to be provided from outside, as human beings, contrary to the majority of animals, unfortunately are not able to synthesize it by themselves. Vitamin C is biologically very active, has strong reducing properties and it is stored mainly in the organs, in which intensive metabolic processes take place – in the liver, adrenal glands, brain, lungs as well as in thymus and pancreas.

The consequences of ascorbic acid deficits
Insufficient level of vitamin C in the organism may lead to scurvy – a disease, which contributes to the disorders of collagen production, capillaries damages and deterioration of the immune system functions. Moreover, ascorbic acid deficits in the organism may lead to the development of iron deficiency anemia, as vitamin C increases the absorption of this element. The symptoms of ascorbic acid shortages are among others: idiopathic bleedings, inflammations of gums and teeth loosening, muscle and joint pains, wound healing deterioration.

The factors conditioning the need for vitamin C
The need for ascorbic acid is dependent on many factors, i.a. age, sex and physiological state. The increase of the need for vitamin C is observed among smoking addicts, people abusing alcohol, suffering from diabetes and also among pregnant and breastfeeding women. Moreover, the increased needs for this vitamin appear among people prone to chronic stress, sportsmen and people using certain medicines for a long time and also in the case of eating disorders, vomiting and bowel dysfunctions.

Vitamin C as an antioxidant
Ascorbic acid is one of the most well-known antioxidants. Antioxidant properties of vitamin C mainly stem from the fact, that it is an electron donor and has reducing abilities, thanks to which it protects other elements against oxidation processes.

This compound eliminates the excess of reactive oxygen forms (i.a. superoxide anion, hydroxyl radical, reactive nitrogen species) and supports maintaining oxidoreductive balance, thanks to which it effectively limits lipid peroxidation in plasma and cell membranes, lowers the risk the damages to DNA, proteins and lipids and may counteract many diseases, i.a. cancers, circulatory system diseases.   

Vitamin C also improves the activity of endothelial cells, reduces atherosclerotic changes and stabilizes blood pressure,

Anticancer properties of ascorbic acid
The positive influence of vitamin C on limiting cancerous changes is related primarily to all its antioxidant properties, but not only, as this vitamin demonstrates many mechanisms counteracting carcinogenesis. Ascorbic acid has a protective effect against the creation of carcinogenic N-nitro compounds – it inhibits the process of nitrozation of nitrates to nitrosamines, which may be the cause of the development of stomach cancer.

Ascorbic acid reduces the number of damages of DNA, proteins and lipids and is responsible along with glutathione for maintaining proper intercellular oxidoreductive potential. Moreover, it stimulates NK cells and lymphocytes T and B, which eliminate pathogens and reduce the number of cancer cells.

Vitamin C and immunity
Vitamin C is known for its ability to increase immunity to infections, however, this mechanism has not been yet entirely discovered. It is known that ascorbic acid optimizes the functioning of the immune system and alleviates the symptoms of colds and shortens their duration.

The concentration of vitamin C in phagocytes and lymphocytes is higher than in plasma, which may indicate how important this substance is in immunological processes. Moreover, scientific research suggests that ascorbic acid has the influence, among other on chemotactic activity of macrophages, increases proliferation of lymphocytes T and the activity of phagocytes.

The influence of vitamin C on collagen production
Vitamin C is the key element in the production of collagen fibers. It influences the activity of enzymes taking part in stabilizing and outcrossing collagen fibers. Moreover, this vitamin is responsible for the activation of collagen transcription and optimization of mRNA procollagen and it also reduces collagen damages caused by oxidative processes, thanks to which it increases the stability of connective tissue.

Summing up, Buffered Vitamin C Powder is a supplement which improves the functioning of the immune system, increases vitality and reduces the risk of cold. It is recommended in the case of increased susceptibility to infections, hard physical work, intensive training and high exposure to stress. Specially designed formula makes thus supplement appropriate also for people with sensitive digestive tract.

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.

Ascorbic acid

Information

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.

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)

Calcium carbonate

Information

Calcium carbonate – a salt of carbonic acid and calcium, used in dietary supplements as one of the calcium forms, because of its high bioavailability. It is an alkaline salt, which is why it is used for neutralisation of the environment in the stomach.

Calcium is a macroelement necessary for the proper functioning of the body system. It is a building material of teeth and bones as well as it determines their mechanical strength. The proper supply of calcium prevents osteoporosis in elderly people and allows for the proper development of skeletal system in children. It is an activator of many enzymes, is involved in the inflammatory processes and regulates secretion of particular hormones. It is also essential for muscle contraction and determines blood coagulation. Moreover, calcium ions allow for transmission of nerve impulses by synapses, so that they regulate the proper neural transmission.

The demand for calcium increases with training intensity, which is why it is recommended for athletes to increase calcium supply. Calcium deficiency can be caused by high-protein diet.

Magnesium

Information

Magnesium (element from the group of alkaline earth metals, atomic no. 12, a chemical symbol - Mg), one of the most important health microelements, participates in the synthesis process of the disintegration of high energy compounds and processes of transformation of hydrocarbons and fats. It affects the dilation of blood vessels and lower blood pressure, prevents hypercoagulable state. Shortages affect cardiac arrhythmias, malignant muscle cramps, insomnia and anxiety. It is a component of many dietary supplements and found in foods such as whole grain bread, legumes, buckwheat, rice, fish, meat, as well as chocolate, cocoa and nuts.
Dosage of 100 - 500 mg / day

Magnesium carbonate

Information

What is magnesium carbonate?

Magnesium carbonate is an inorganic magnesium salt of carbonic acid. It demonstrates the properties neutralizing gastric acid.

Magnesium is one of the most deficient elements of a classic diet, therefore supplements with magnesium are incredibly popular. Deficiencies of this mineral mainly may result in hypertension, lower sensitivity to insulin and psychological symptoms, such as increased stress, irritability, fatigue and weariness.

This element also takes part in regulating water balance in the organism and nerve transmission. It influences muscle work, which may be observed in characteristic cramps related to magnesium deficiency. It is also known for its anti-stress and sedative properties, thanks to which it is willingly used before sleep and in the situations characterized with high psychological burden. It is also important for mineral density of bones, as right next to calcium, it is one of the most important elements for maintaining strong and healthy bones. 

Zinc

Information


Zinc (chemical element from transition group 12) belongs to the trace elements, it helps maintain acid-base balance of the body, protein, energy, lipid and carbohydrate metabolism. It provides bone metabolism and transport of oxygen. It protects the body against free radicals. Necessary for the proper operation of the senses of taste and smell. Positive impact on the process of insulin metabolism in the pancreas. It supports visual adaptation to the dark, has a significant influence on brain function. It is helpful in the treatment of infertility and mental illness.
Zinc deficiency leads to decreased immunity, and growth retardation. Zinc deficiency can occur in case of excessive consumption of simple sugars. In the case of hormonal therapy of women with irregular menstruation, the therapy should be associated with increased consumption of zinc. It can be found in food like: beans, eggs, carrots, beef and pork meat, milk, nuts, citrus fruits, seafood, rice, cottage cheese, lettuce.
Dosage: Daily 12-15 mg zinc. Exceeding the daily dose of 20 mg cause symptoms of poisoning of the body.

 

Zinc gluconate

Information

Zinc gluconate - a highly bioavailable form of zinc, a trace element belonging to the group of essential microelements. Being the component of numerous enzymatic systems in the human organism, it demonstrates considerable influence on its functioning.

It is an important regulator of work of the immune system, it regulates the processes of production and activity of leukocytes. It promotes the efficiency of the immunity barrier of the organism, has direct antibacterial influence, which is taken advantage of in topical application of zinc preparations.

Supplementation with zinc is also used in order to increase the level of testosterone in the organism. It demonstrates an inhibiting influence on the activity of aromatase P450, which transforms the male sex hormone into estrogen. In this way, it has promoting influence on the concentration of the male sex hormone in the organism.

Zinc is also important when it comes to the functions of the nervous system. Its deficiencies decrease the efficiency of cognitive functions, inhibit concentration and may negatively influence emotional states. Some sources suggest that zinc deficiency may be related to depression.

Some drugs from the group of NSAIDs, inducing acetylsalicylic acid and ibuprofen should not be applied with supplements containing zinc.

Potassium

Information

Potassium and sodium regulate the body's water resources, ensuring normal heart rhythm. Maintaining the proper level of potassium provides the proper oxidation of the brain, lowers blood pressure, increases the permeability of cell membranes (as an antagonist of calcium). It is a base-forming element. It is widely used in sports diet before and after training in the form of supplements, nutrients, vitamin-mineral preparations and minerals, concentrates and ready, isotonic and hypertonic beverages. Natural sources of acquisition of potassium are: vegetable products (bananas, citrus fruits, melons, mint leaves, green vegetables, potatoes) and animal products (sea fish, meat). Potassium is present in the form of organic compounds: citric acids, and fumarates gluconates and inorganic (chlorides, sulfates, oxides and carbonates).
Potassium deficiency (hypokalemia): excessive tiredness, headaches and irritability, problems with sleeping, muscle cramps, constipation. Potassium levels may drop sharply in the event of a reduction in blood sugar levels, prolonged starvation, severe diarrhea. They can occur when too much of strong coffee is consumed, with alcohol abuse and when eating too much sweets.
The excess of potassium (hyperkalemia) is often the cause of depression, hypotension, tingling in the extremities.
