The supplement allows to easily and safely increase the supply of vitamin C. It is especially recommended to people, who don’t care about proper diet, eat few fruits and vegetables or are addicted to nicotine. It is also worth taking it in the season of flus and colds.
Vitamin C is one of the best-known and the most biologically active vitamins. It takes part in many biochemical reactions and conditions proper course of many metabolic processes. It is also one of the strongest known antioxidants.
Dog rose (Rosa canina) is a plant incredibly valued in pharmacopoeia. For therapeutic purposes both fruits and flowers are used. They contain high concentration of natural vitamin C, antioxidants and galactolipids - unique substances with anti-inflammatory effect.
Bioflavonoids is a group of chemical compounds belonging to polyphenols. They are secondary products of plant metabolism. Especially citrus fruits are characterized by the high content of bioflavonoids. These compounds are valued primarily for their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects. They work synergistically with vitamin C, prolong its time of biological activity in the organism and strengthen the functions that it plays.
Vitamin C is conducive to increasing immunity. When used in the period of flu and colds, it may decrease the frequency of infections, shorten the time of the disease and alleviate its course. Vitamin C in the organism is used i.a. for the production of cells of the immune system (e.g. lymphocytes B and T), which are responsible for the protection of the organism against pathogens. Moreover, it stimulates the activity of NK cells and stimulates the process of phagocytosis, consisting in absorbing pathological or infected cells.
Vitamin C is one of the most powerful antioxidants. Due to its specific chemical structure it has high ability to neutralize reactive oxygen forms and protects cells from oxidative stress. It may play the function of electron donor, which accelerates the pace of reaction redox in the presence of metals dangerous to health. In this way, it inhibits the organism’s aging and decreases the risk of diseases, which are caused by the excess of free radicals.
Vitamin C is engaged in collagen biosynthesis. This protein constitutes the main building element of connective tissue, is present in teeth, bones, joint cartilages and skin. Vitamin C deficiency may impair the transformations of procollagen into collagen proper. As a result, the tightness of blood vessels is decreased, skin loses elasticity and disfunctions in the musculoskeletal system may appear.
Vitamin C regulates the work of the nervous system. It modulates the systems of a few important neurotransmitters (cholinergic, catecholaminergic and glutaminergic), demonstrates neuroprotective effect. Increasing the supply of vitamin C allows to eliminate the feeling of excessive fatigue and weariness, has positive influence on cognitive health and according to some sources, it may also decrease the symptoms of depression.
Vitamin C may inhibit excessive production of cortisol in response to stress. It was proven in the studies that people prone to physical or mental stress, who obtained high doses of vitamin C had lower level of cortisol and lower blood pressure than a control group that obtained placebo.
Vitamin C increases availability of nutrients. It positively influences especially the absorption of calcium and non-heme iron. It is especially important for people, who do not eat meat, as iron present in vegetable products is considered very hard to assimilate.
To sum up, BioTech Vitamin C 1000 is an easy way to increase the supply of vitamin C and complement potential deficiencies. The supplement is especially recommended to smokers, may be helpful also in problems with fragility of blood vessels and deterioration of the state of skin. When used in the season of increased frequency of flus and colds, it will boost immunity and limit the risk of infections.
The supplement enriches diet in a large dose of vitamin C and the components strengthening its activity. As prophylaxis, take 1 tablet a day. The dose may be increased during infections. Vitamin C is soluble in water, therefore it does not need to be applied with a meal.
People who practice sport need to remember that reactive oxygen forms that are produced during intensive physical effort are important for effort adaptation. High doses of vitamin C will block this process, therefore the supplement is worth using away from workout.

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 – 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 (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 resulting 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 – 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.
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.
Citrus aurantium extract (Bitter orange extract) is widely used in weight reduction process, among athletes, active individuals and people with so called sedentary life-style. It is a source of synephrine and octopamine, which in combination with caffeine and polyphenols contained in green tea affect lipolysis, releasing fatty acids from adipocytes, causing increased energy expenditure, burning them in the sources of cells vital energy (mitochondria). It became popular after the banning ephedine (dangerous for the body) by WADA .
The extract of bitter orange is part of the weight loss supplements (I.e. thermogenics), pre-workout creatine stacks and nitrogen boosters.
Dosage: No specific standards of daily consumption. At high hypertension and with medicines containing a statin, extract of bitter orange should not be used.
