DOCTOR'S BEST 12-Hour Vitamin C is a dietary supplement containing vitamin C in the form of PureWay-C®. It is characterized by perfect bioavailability, thanks to which it is more effective in supplementation that pure ascorbic acid.
PureWay-C® - is the name of a patented complex containing ascorbic acid along with lipid metabolites, with which vitamin C appears in its natural sources. They decide about higher bioavailability of ascorbic acid coming from fruits. Closing the components increasing assimilability of vitamin C along with it in one capsule guarantees its maximal absorbability. It is addressed to people who are aware of the importance of supplementing this vitamin and allows to supplement it in a complex way, at the amount that we could not achieve eating only fruits (despite great assimilability, natural sources contain relatively little vitamin C). In the supplement, there is also an additive of citrus bioflavonoids, which also positively influence the assimilability of vitamin C.
Vitamin C – unsaturated polyhydroxy alcohol, playing many incredibly important functions in the human organism. Contrary to a common, erroneous opinion, a biologically active isomer, L-ascorbic acid, turns polarized light right, therefore, it is dextrorotatory. It naturally occurs mainly in fruits and among its main sources there is acerola, which provides more than 1,5g of vitamin C per 100g.
Safety of supplementation
An incredibly important matter when it comes to taking large doses of vitamin C is its safety. Research shows lack of negative reactions of the organism even at the doses of several grams per day. The first symptom of overdosing vitamin C is diarrhea. In the situations of supplementation with extremely high doses of vitamin C, it allows to determine maximal tolerance of this compound by our organism. However, studies in majority do not confirm the reasonability of supplementation with the doses of a few grams per day. However, wise increase of vitamin C supply has many positive aspects.
Reduction of oxidative stress
Vitamin C is a strong antioxidant. Its supplementation allows to decrease the amount of free radicals generating oxidative stress in the organism. It is a phenomenon negatively influencing the functioning of cells and leads to their accelerated apoptosis. Reduction of oxidative stress is the way to slow down aging processes. Decreased amount of free radicals also means decreased risk of cancer. Moreover, it was proven that protective effect on oxidative stress in testicles may positively influence testosterone secretion.
Stimulation of immune system functions
Supplementation with vitamin C positively influences the functioning of the immune system. Stimulation of its functions enables more efficient immune response, which is reflected in shortening the time of s disease. Increasing the supply of vitamin C is also indicated as the way to improve immunity during the periods of increased rate of all kinds of colds and infections.
Improvement of sugar metabolism
Vitamin C, thanks to its antioxidant properties may have protective effect on beta cells of pancreas, responsible for secreting insulin. In this way, it positively influences physiological secretion of this hormone, affecting at the same time, the systemic carbohydrate metabolism. Moreover, vitamin C may increase insulin sensitivity of cells, which is also conducive to maintaining efficient sugar metabolism.
Supplementation with vitamin C is also indicated as the form of cancer prophylaxis. This effect is especially visible when it comes to lung and breast cancer. There are also some premises correlating increased supply of ascorbic acid and decreased mortality of already sick people.
Improves joint functions
Vitamin C is present on the pathway of collagen synthesis, conditioning it. In this way, its properly high supply enables the production of a basic protein, building connective tissue. It is reflected in increased mechanical endurance of the structures building joints and general improvement of their functionality.
Summing up, vitamin C is an incredibly universal supplement, the increased supply of which brings many pro-health benefits. Ascorbic acid in the form of PureWay-C® contained in the product DOCTOR'S BEST 12-Hour Vitamin C, enriched in bioflavonoids, is a great source of vitamin C. It is characterized by the highest assimilability, similar to natural sources, which enables truly effective supplementation.
The complex of compounds, promoting assimilability of ascorbic acid from this preparation allows to take the supplement regardless of meals (vitamin C is soluble in water, therefore there is no need to administer it along with a source of fat).
In case of supplementing a higher dose, divide it into a few smaller portions, as it will decrease the risk of side effects in the digestive system.
