C-500 with Rose Hips C-500 with Rose Hips

Now Foods C-500 With Rose Hips is a dietary supplement containing a highly assimilable form of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) and, additionally, powdered rose hips (Rosae pseudofructus), which constitutes a natural source of vitamin C and increases the bioavailability of the preparation. As a fantastic source of one of the strongest antioxidants available, the preparation efficiently supports the organism in the fight against free radicals, strengthens the immune system, and participates in collagen production.

Vitamin C is the best known vitamin with multifaceted activity. In 1928, it was isolated for the first time from pepper by a Hungarian biochemist, Albert Szent-Györgyi, for which he was awarded the Nobel Prize. Contrary to animals, humans do not have the ability to synthesise vitamin C; as a result, it needs to be delivered to the organism with food. Vitamin C is necessary for the normal process of many crucial biological transformations, it plays the role of a cofactor in the synthesis of collagen, enzymes and many other important compounds, it prevents the negative consequences of the activity of excess free radicals, strengthens the immune system, and helps to increase iron and calcium absorption.

Ascorbic acid metabolism
Ascorbic acid exhibits strong reductive properties with high vitamin activity, and thanks to great solubility, it is absorbed by the organism in about 70-80%. The process of absorption takes places mainly in the duodenum and the proximal part of the small intestine, and it depends on the condition of the organism, as it can be inhibited by, for example, vomiting, lack of appetite, distorted digestion, absorption disorders, smoking cigarettes, taking some medicines, or the distorted functioning of the bowel. The greatest reserves of vitamin C are found in organs with high metabolic activity, that is the adrenals, the liver, the brain, the pancreas, and the lungs.

Vitamin C demand
The demand for vitamin C is diverse and depends on many factors, including the age, sex, or physiological condition. Increased demand for the nutrient is observed in the case of heavy and/or long-lasting training, vomiting, the distorted functioning of the bowel, eating disorders, as well as among the elderly, smokers, pregnant and breastfeeding women. Moreover, the demand for vitamin C is increased in the case of hypertension, diabetes, or strong stress.

Consequences of vitamin C deficiency
Vitamin C deficiency can lead to disorders in collagen synthesis, which causes decreased skin firmness and elasticity and wrinkles. Apart from that, the symptoms of ascorbic acid deficiency are: inhibited wound healing, brittle and weak capillaries, which can lead to microstrokes, muscle pains, increased susceptibility to infections, eating disorders, fatigue, bleeding gums.

Protection against free radicals
The best known property of ascorbic acid is its antioxidant potential. Vitamin C has the ability to neutralise excess free radicals, which can be responsible for protein, lipid and DNA damage and partly for the development of many pathological lesions. Thanks to its strong antioxidant properties, vitamin C is extremely relevant for preventing the damage of the brain and other organs, caused by the damage induced by free radicals.

Participation in collagen synthesis
Vitamin C participates in the hydroxylation of proline and lysine residues to hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, thanks to which it affects collagen biosynthesis. Collagen constitutes as much as 25 to 40 per cent of total protein content in the organism and can be found, among other places, in the skin, teeth, bones, connective tissue, as well as cartilage and the eye cornea; as a result, its normal levels are extremely important for the normal functioning of the organism.

Immunity support
Vitamin C is believed to have the ability to improve the functioning of the immune system. Although the mechanism of the vitamin’s activity is not entirely known, numerous scientific studies have proven a correlation between its normal levels in the organism and increased immunity, which makes it very desirable above all in the period of increased flu and colds.

Normal skin structure
Vitamin C affects the healthy appearance of the skin. The vitamin participates in the synthesis of ceramides, which play an important role in the normal hydration of the skin and protect it from excessive dryness. Moreover, the substance improves skin regeneration, enhances its elasticity and colour, inhibits aging processes, and guarantees its firmness and flexibility.

To sum up, Now Foods, C-500 With Rose Hips is a dietary supplement recommended above all for increasing the organism’s vitality and natural immunity. Using the supplement should prove particularly beneficial for people who struggle with excessive stress and increased susceptibility to infections, as well as those who train or work heavily or for a long time.

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.
