Microgenics Vitamin C 1000 Non Acidic 200 Capsules
Microgenics Vitamin C 1000 Non Acidic contains Vitamin C in the buffered form of calcium ascorbate. Vitamin C in the form of ascorbic acid is acidic, and high doses may cause stomach upsets and loose stools. However, buffered Vitamin C avoids this by combining Vitamin C with calcium.
Calcium reduces the acidity of Vitamin C, making it more gentle on the digestive tract, even when taken in high doses. This makes Microgenics Vitamin C 1000 Non Acidic suitable for customers with a sensitive digestive system. In addition to being gut-friendly, buffered Vitamin C is also easily absorbed and utilised by the body, and has a longer-lasting effect.
Support the immune system
It is a well-known fact that Vitamin C is important for the immune system. Low levels of Vitamin C are associated with lowered immunity whilst higher levels are linked to improved resistance to bacteria and viruses. There are several ways in which Vitamin C supports the immune system. It supports healthy skin function, so viruses and bacteria can’t enter our bodies through the skin. It also stimulates immune cells to attack and kill microbes more efficiently.1
Whilst Vitamin C deficiency may result in impaired immunity and higher susceptibility to infections, infections create inflammation and increase metabolic requirements, all of which deplete Vitamin C levels and increase their requirements. Research shows that supplementing with Vitamin C can help to both prevent and treat respiratory and systemic infections. Studies also show that to prevent infections, you need to take at least 100-200 mg vitamin C per day.2
Relieve symptoms of the common cold
Whilst studies show that Vitamin C supplementation can reduce the duration of the common cold in athletes and children by 14-18%3, it is recommended that the rest of the general population combines Vitamin C with a Zinc supplement4 for the best results.
Vitamin C as an antioxidant
Vitamin C’s antioxidant properties help prevent cells from dying during inflammation, thus limiting damage that can occur when the immune system fights off an infection5.
A normal, healthy skin contains high concentrations of Vitamin C which is important for collagen synthesis. Low levels of Vitamin C can thus impact on the skin’s health; with research showing that Vitamin C has powerful anti-oxidant properties to help protect the skin against UV damage6.
Data from several studies shows that Vitamin C deficiency can result in poor wound healing, and that Vitamin C supplementation can help improve wound healing in those who have low Vitamin C levels7,8.
Nervous system support
Vitamin C is also involved in the production of several neurotransmitters, including noradrenaline and serotonin. Low levels of Vitamin C can thus affect moods; and supplementing with Vitamin C can be beneficial to lift moods9,10.
Healthy blood vessels
Vitamin C can help repair broken capillaries and help strengthen the capillary walls. It does this by supporting collagen synthesis and by acting as an antioxidant11.
