Vitamin C Vitamin C

Raw Series Vitamin C is a 100% pure ascorbic acid powdered dietary supplement. Vitamin C is an antioxidant vitamin that has a number of important functions in the body. The powder form ensures a comfortable and easy application.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a vitamin belonging to compounds with a strong antioxidant activity. Since it is not produced in the human body, it must be regularly supplied in a diet. As a donor compound, vitamin C creates a redox system, as a result of which it can be a cofactor in many important biochemical reactions. Due to its structure, it can take unpaired electrons (free radicals) and neutralize them. Free radicals combated by vitamin C include oxygen and hydroxyl radicals, and singlet oxygen. Unpaired electrons can damage important cellular structures, which can lead to the induction of tumourigenesis. Therefore, vitamin C displays protective functions, supporting the homeostasis of the body.

Vitamin C is a water-soluble compound, acting as the main antioxidant in the water phase, i.e. in the hydrated areas of the body. The vitamin is of particular importance for the ocular and pulmonary tissue, where it protects hemoglobin from peroxidation processes. Vitamin C inhibits smoking-induced elevated markers of lipid oxidation. It demonstrates the ability to neutralize free radicals formed as a side effect of cellular metabolism and as a result of food processing. Vitamin C deficiency leads to the weakening of tissue immunity to free radicals.

Vitamin C is essential for the collagen synthesis. Collagen is one of the major proteins present in the extracellular matrix of connective tissue. Responsible for flexibility and durability of the skin, tendons, and cartilage. Vitamin C is a cofactor for prolyl and lysyl hydroxylase, enzymes that condition intersection of collagen fibers. The Vitamin can also directly enhance the synthesis of collagen. In addition, vitamin C protects the already formed collagen from the harmful effects of free radicals, promoting, among others, healthy and youthful skin and proper functioning of joints.

Vitamin C strengthens the immune system. It has immunomodulatory activity. The compound increases the production of interferon, influences the formation of certain classes of immunoglobulins as well as the activity of granulocytes, natural killer cells and lymphocytes. As a result, the body's resistance to infections and its ability to fight certain diseases increases. Vitamin C is an important part of colds prevention.

Vitamin C increases the absorption of iron. Iron occurs on two oxidation levels – II and III. Plant-derived products contain iron on the third oxidation level and is referred to as nonheme iron. Since the nonheme iron is very poorly absorbed by the body, Vitamin C enables its reduction to iron on the second level of oxidation, significantly increasing its absorption in the duodenum. Therefore, in order to avoid dangerous shortages of iron, it is worth combining vitamin C with the products being its source.

In summary, Raw Series Vitamin C supplements the diet with vitamin C. The product is recommended as part of a daily prevention of vitamin C deficiencies, especially in autumn and winter, for individuals leading a stressful lifestyle, smoking cigarettes, people on a vegetable diet, to strengthen the blood vessels and improve skin condition.

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.
