Vitamin C with Rose Hips 1000mg Vitamin C with Rose Hips 1000mg

Swanson Vitamin C with Rose Hips is a dietary supplement with vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in both efficient and safe dosage – 1000mg (1g) in one capsule. In addition, the effect of vitamin C is supported by the extract from rose hips, which, on the one hand, prolongs and strengthens the effect of vitamin C and, on the other hand, is a natural source of vitamin C in itself.

Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) – an essential dietary component which conditions normal functioning of the organism, and which needs to be delivered with food, as human beings cannot synthesise it. It is an important antioxidant, which means that it enables a stable antioxidant potential in a cell, as well as takes part in transporting electrons between molecules.

Dog-rose (extract from rose hips) – contains a great amount of natural vitamin C, which is much more effective than the synthetically produced ascorbic acid. That is because it occurs among many other bioactive components which facilitate its absorption and prolong its effect on the organism. The components which belong to that group are: vitamins A, B1, B2, E, K, bioflavonoids (including rutin), folic acid, organic acids, tannins and pectin.

Role of vitamin C in the organism:
- it is an important antioxidant
- it fights free radicals and reactive oxygen species (ROS)
- it takes part in the transformations of tyrosine
- it partakes in the synthesis of adrenal steroids and noradrenaline
- it conditions the normal production of bile acids and carnitine
- it is a hematopoietic factor
- it works as a coenzyme in the creation of the pre-pro-collagen

Vitamin C allowance
Although the recommended dietary allowance (RDA) of vitamin C is 80mg for women and 90mg for men, remember that these dosages are the minimum value needed to prevent scurvy. The vitamin’s healing properties are much higher. For example, it was not taken into account that the vitamin C level drops drastically in times of emotional or physical stress. Every inflammation, surgery, bacterial infection or poisoning requires larger dosage of vitamin C.

Reportedly, athletes, physically active people, smokers and those with digestive problems have a higher demand for vitamin C. Obviously, people with insulin problems and hypoglycaemia should definitely start supplementation, as a high level of glucose in the blood makes the absorption and effect of vitamin C weaker and increases the amount of it in urine.

Effects of vitamin C deficiency:
Vitamin C deficiency leads to catastrophic effects on health, including scurvy – a multi-organ disease whose main symptom is connective tissue deterioration. That is because vitamin C is a coenzyme in creating the pre-pro-collagen. Its deficiency and a disturbed process of collagen synthesis (scurvy) leads to spontaneous bleeding (blood vessel damage), muscle, joint and bone pains, pathological fractures, gingivitis and tooth loss.

Other effects of vitamin C deficiency are:

Food sources of vitamin C:
Unfortunately, there is less and less vitamin C to obtain from food. That is because the compound is one of the most sensitive ones to external factors. High temperature, exposure to light and direct contact with air destroy vitamin C in food. Moreover, analyses of fruit composition confirm that there is less and less natural vitamin C in them each year.

The biggest amount of vitamin C can be found in the Malpighia glabra fruit and in dog-rose. Parsley, blackcurrant and red pepper are good sources as well.

Effect of vitamin C on colds and infections:
Research has shown that vitamin C supplementation significantly reduces the duration of colds and infections. It is particularly effective in athletes and people who spend most of their time in low temperatures (thus, exposed to additional stress), in whom the frequency of cold occurrence was reduced by over a half (50%) after using 2g of ascorbic acid daily.

Effects of vitamin C on the removal of heavy metals:
A feature of vitamin C that is not very well known is its ability to remove heavy metals from the organism. However, that only happens when its amount exceeds the minimum needed to cover all the basic functions in the organism. In that case, vitamin C is able to remove, among other things, lead, mercury, arsenic, cadmium and nickel. It is recommended to use prebiotics during treatment in order to prevent reabsorption of the toxins in the colon.

Effect of vitamin C on neoplasms:
There is a lot of controversy related to using vitamin C in cancer treatment. There is also an ongoing conflict between specifically academic medicine (strongly supported by the pharmaceutical industry) and alternative therapies. One thing is undeniable – there is quite a big amount of evidence suggesting that introducing vitamin C to cancer treatment is beneficial in numerous ways.

Many practitioners have reported that vitamin C has prolonged the lives of terminally ill patients, as well as inhibited the development of skin cancer cells, destroyed breast cancer cells thanks to the factor stimulating apoptosis, improved the general feeling of patients and alleviated chronic pain.

Meta-analyses conducted by researchers also confirmed the relationship between taking vitamin C and decreased colon cancer incidence, and, above all, improving the survival rate of already ill patients with cancer.

Effect of vitamin C on cortisol level
Researchers have found out that administering high doses of vitamin C (1-1.5g per day) results in significant decrease in cortisol level (stress hormone) in the organism. It is particularly relevant for athletes and dieting people, as cortisol is, on the one hand, a catabolic hormone (it inhibits building muscles), and, on the other hand, its permanently high level leads to metabolic disorders, including the accumulation of body fat.

To sum up, Swanson Vitamin C with Rose Hips is a dietary supplement which should be commonly used within health prevention programmes, as it supplements many diet-based deficiencies. It is particularly recommended for athletes and people under chronic stress because, as shown by some reports, they need much more vitamin C than a regular healthy person.

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.
