Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble vitamin that has a wide range of functions in the human body, with its primary function being a excellent anti-oxidant. Ascorbic acid, also known as vitamin C, is a nutrient that plays a crucial role in maintaining optimal health.
Ultimate Nutrition has added bioflavonoids as they enhance and improve the action of Vitamin C and this is the reason they should be taken as a combination. Ultimate Nutrition’s High Strength vitamin C is 1000mg in every caplet, and they are ideal for anyone wanting to supplement with Vitamin C.
One of vitamin C's most important functions is acting as an antioxidant, protecting LDL cholesterol from oxidative damage. When LDL is damaged the cholesterol appears to lead to heart disease, but vitamin C acts as an important antioxidant protector of LDL. The antioxidant properties also protect smokers from the harmful effects of free radicals.
Getting plenty of vitamin C daily optimizes your body's immune function and enhances wound healing.
Vitamin C has lots of other additional functions. It is needed to make collagen, a substance that strengthens many parts of the body, such as muscles and blood vessels. It also plays an important role in the healing process and as a anti-histamine.
Vitamin C also aids in the formation of liver bile which helps to detoxify alcohol and other substances. Evidence indicates that vitamin C levels in the eye decrease with age and that a good vitamin C supplement may help to prevent this decrease, lowering the risk of developing cataracts.
Ultimate Nutrition’s High Strength Ultimate C with Bioflavanoids and Rosehips can also be very effective when taken in conjunction with Pure Marine Collagen.
Because it is an antioxidant, vitamin C helps prevent cell damage caused by free radicals in your body. The University of Maryland Medical Centre states that free radical build-up in your body can cause you to age faster, and puts you at a higher risk for developing heart disease, cancer and arthritis.
Because vitamin C is a water soluble-vitamin, your body needs a continuous daily supply of it. Vitamin C isn't stored in your body like fat-soluble vitamins.
Flavonoid (also known as bioflavonoids) are a type of plant pigment, which produces yellow, red or blue pigmentation in flowers and protects them from attack by bugs and other predators.
Consuming flavonoids provides a whole host of benefits for the body, and the truth is that we really cannot live happily without them.
What these chemicals do above all is to provide a huge dose of antioxidant to help to our internal systems. Flavonoids also have a low toxicity compared to other active plant compounds and they have been called “nature’s biological response modifiers” because they can help us react appropriately to viruses, carcinogens and allergens, by giving a powerful boost to the immune system.
That means that flavonoids exhibit anti-inflammatory, anti-microbial and anti-cancer properties, because they protect against oxidatiive and free radical damage caused by pollution and the body’s normal metabolic processes. Free radicals are responsible for a lot of the damage done to the body by poisons such as cigarette smoke or drugs; and they’re one of the major factors that contribute to ageing.
