What Is Vitamin C Plus?
Our Vitamin C Plus is basically a vitamin C formula in a powdered form, but don’t be fooled by its name as it is so much more than just vitamin C! We have added additional yet essential ingredients to make this product superior to your standard daily vitamin C tablets.
Why Have Vitamin C Plus?
We can’t store vitamin C in the body, which means we need it from our diet every day, but fear not as vitamin C is one of the safest and most effective nutrients, experts say. It may not be the cure for the common cold (though it's thought to help prevent more serious complications). But the benefits of vitamin C may include protection against immune system deficiencies the formation of blood vessels, aid our psychological functions and even help keep our skin healthier for longer.
People who don’t get enough vitamin C in their diets are at risk of getting symptoms such as bleeding gums, feeling lethargic, bone pain, joint pain and wounds not healing or breaking open after they appear to have healed. Nowadays it is very unlikely to become totally deficient from vitamin C, only those with very poor diets from not eating any fruit or veg, and living from processed food, have a greater risk of vitamin C deficiency.
Behind The Key Ingredients
Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) is a water-soluble vitamin, which means the body doesn’t store this vitamin in the body, so you will need to have them more frequently. This vitamin is necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. It's involved in many body functions, including the formation of collagen, absorption of iron, the immune system, wound healing, and the maintenance of cartilage, bones, and teeth.
Montmorency Cherry is a variety of sour cherry, which falls into the category of "Superfruits". They are rich in antioxidants and contain a range of potent phytonutrients.
Lysine is an essential amino acid (building blocks of protein) but since the body cannot produce it you’ll have to get it from a dietary source, such as meat, dairy, and eggs, or supplements.
Proline is non-essential in humans, meaning the body can synthesise it, although despite it being called non-essential it doesn’t mean it is useless to us, as like every other amino acid it the building blocks of protein.
Green Tea itself comes from the leaves of the Camellia Sinensis plant, which has long been used in traditional Chinese and Indian medicine for a variety of use. Green Tea Extract contains polyphenols (a bioflavonoid), and it is also a source of EGCG (antioxidant).
When Would I Use It?
The best way to take vitamin C supplements is 2 - 3 times per day with meals, although avoid taking any vitamin C product is not to take on an empty stomach, as it is can possibly lead to indigestion. Consider higher dosages if you are under extra stress, living in smoke-filled or polluted environments, or not getting at least five servings of fruits and vegetables as part of your daily diet.
