Vitamin C-1000 Sustained Release Vitamin C-1000 Sustained Release

Now Foods Vitamin C-1000 Sustained Release is a dietary supplement in the form of tablets containing a high dose of vitamin C (1000 mg) and a dog rose extract, which is a source of many components with health-promoting properties. A great advantage of the preparation is that the tablets are characterised by a mechanism of gradual release of active components, which guarantees a constant supply of the right doses, unlike in the case of similar products which provide one huge dose that the organism cannot utilise fully on the spot and is most frequently excreted.

Vitamin C is one of the most often used vitamin supplements with a wide range of effects on the human organism. It plays an important role in the formation of collagen (a structural protein used in connective tissue) amino acid metabolism, and hormone synthesis, as well as the use of many nutrients, such as folic acid and iron. It is also a crucial factor in the functioning of the immune system.

The demand for vitamin C depends on many factors, such as age, sex, weight and the physiological condition. In many people suffering from hypertension or diabetes, pregnant and breastfeeding women, those who drink alcohol excessively, smoke tobacco products, are physically active or exposed to long-lasting stress, an increased demand for vitamin C is observed. That is when Now Foods Vitamin C-1000 Sustained Release can lend a hand.

Vitamin C deficiencies usually manifest themselves through tiredness and weakness of the organism, reduced physical capacity, increased susceptibility to infections, bleeding gums and their sensitivity, problems with wound healing, aberrations in collagen synthesis and all other processes that ascorbic acid participates in. Moreover, long-term vitamin C deficiencies can increase the risk of atherosclerosis, cancer, as well as cause hypertension. Seniors, smokers, alcoholics and those who take some drugs (for example, barbiturates, aspirin, sulphonamides) are the groups that are the most vulnerable to the vitamin’s deficiency.

Antioxidant properties
Because vitamin C can donate two electrons, it performs the function of an important antioxidant and participates in many enzymatic reactions as their cofactor. The antioxidant properties of ascorbic acid increase the protection of cells from the harmful activity of free oxygen radicals and prevent the development of cardiovascular system diseases.

When the organism is in the state of homeostasis, free oxygen radicals play a very important role in many biological processes. When they gather excessively as a result of various factors, the redox balance is disturbed and reactive oxygen species start to have a negative effect on every cell in the organism. They can change and damage the DNA, attack cell structures, and initiate cancerous processes. Thanks to its high antioxidant potential, vitamin C wipes out free radicals, reducing the damage of not only the DNA, but also of proteins and lipids, thanks to which it reduces the risk of developing cancer and cardiovascular system diseases.

Vitamin C plays a significant role in the normal functioning of the immune system. Available scientific evidence demonstrates that ascorbic acid helps to stimulate the production of interferons (proteins released by cells in response to the presence of pathogens) and immunostimulatory processes, affects the increase of immunity by activating NKs (natural killer cells), lymphocytes T and B, which not only neutralise pathogens but also fight cancer cells, affects the mobility and mobilisation of monocytes, granulocytes and macrophages as well as the production of some classes of immunoglobulins.

One of the most important biological functions of ascorbic acid is the synthesis of collagen, which supports the structure of teeth, bones, connective tissue, the skin, and the cornea of the eye. Vitamin C takes part in the transformations of proline radicals, as well as those of lysine to hydroxylysine and hydroxyproline. It enables the transformation of procollagen into collagen, as it provides electrons for the enzymes that participate in hydroxylation.

Other functions of vitamin C
Proper vitamin C levels in the organism help to increase the absorption of calcium and non-haem iron. It also participates in the biosynthesis of carnitine, the conversions of steroids and fats (for example, of cholesterol to bile acids), and the synthesis of hormones and neurotransmitters, like noradrenaline. Moreover, ascorbic acid helps to regenerate damaged tissues during wound healing and post-workout regeneration, maintains the health of the oral cavity and gums, and participates in the regulation of arterial blood pressure and the maintenance of normal fasting blood glucose levels and in the case of hyperglycaemia in people suffering from diabetes.

Dog rose products exhibit strengthening properties that stem from the presence of over 130 biologically active components working in synergy in the human organism. Some of the substances they contain are vitamin C, carotenoids (like beta-carotene, lycopene, xanthophylls), flavonoids (astragalin, isoquercetin, tiliroside), proanthocyanidins, vitamins (E, K, B1, B2 and B3, B6), essential oils, organic acids (malic and citric), and minerals (P, K, Ca, Mg, Fe, Cu, Mn, Zn).

The galactolipid (GOPO) isolated from rose hips is responsible for their powerful anti-inflammatory activity, which results from their ability to inhibit the independent movement of leukocytes, reduce the concentration of the C-reactive proteins (CRPs) and decrease the level of creatinine in the blood plasma. According to research, after the administration of powdered rose hips, patients suffering from chronic bone and joint inflammations exhibit higher joint mobility and report a reduction of pain. The activity of GOPO is reinforced by the presence of vitamin C and flavonoids contained in the preparation Now Foods Vitamin C-1000 Sustained Release.

To sum up, Now Foods Vitamin C-1000 Sustained Release is a dietary supplement whose use is recommended in the case of convalescence, increased physical activity, stress, tiredness, general weakness, infectious diseases, and conditions connected with limited vitamin C absorption.

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.
