Vitamin C - An Essential Addition To Your Supplement Cupboard
Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid), is a specific vitamin that cannot be stored or produced by the body. Therefore the Vitamin C needs of the body are completely reliant on daily dietary sources and supplementation. Vitamin C is incredibly versatile in the benefits it provides. Vitamin C is required for proper growth and development and plays an important role as a powerful antioxidant - preventing damage from toxins and pollutants.
Vitamin C - Benefits and Dietary SourcesFound in small amounts naturally in lime, lemon, oranges, strawberries, pineapple, sweet peppers, broccoli, spinach and tomatoes - Vitamin C has been shown to enhance important components of the immune system. This can be essential to athletes during intense training programme where their immune systems can be negatively affected. Crucially, Vitamin C has also been shown to reduce cortisol levels. Cortisol is a stress hormone that becomes elevated after a hard training session and make the body more predisposed to slowed recovery and fat storage. Finally, Vitamin C improves the availability of iron for haemoglobin synthesis and is involved with amino acid metabolism.
