Vitamin C Time release - Information

A vitamin with many tasks

Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that humans cannot produce themselves, we must supply it through the diet. Vitamin C has a variety of tasks in the body and is of great help in many processes. The vitamin participates in the formation of collagen in the connective tissue, but it also increases iron absorption in the body, which is important for energy levels. Vitamin C is a very important component for the immune system to function normally. Vitamin C also protects the body against oxidative stress caused by so-called free radicals. Free radicals are reactive oxygen compounds that form when the body burns oxygen. Certain things increase the production of free radicals, such as stress, exercise, illness and smoking. Vitamin C acts as a powerful antioxidant by neutralizing these reactive oxygen compounds.

Vitamin C is needed to form collagen

In the human body, the bones of the skeleton are held together by joints that can move towards each other, which makes the whole body mobile. What makes the joints withstand wear better and that they have a surface that makes them slide against each other, is precisely the cartilage. Cartilage consists for the most part of the human's most important protein, collagen. The collagen forms fibrous structures that give firmness to the skin - the body's largest organ. Over the years, the amount of collagen decreases as the body's own production drops, which makes the skin lax. If extra collagen is added, the aging effect is slowed down. For the body to be able to form collagen in bones, cartilage, skin and blood vessels, Vitamin C is needed above all.

What is Time Release?

Time release stands for slow release over time and can be an advantage when it comes to water-soluble vitamins, such as vitamin C. In our Vitamin C Time Release, the raw material is microgranulated, i.e. divided into small granules that dissolve slowly in the body. This enables better absorption as water-soluble vitamins are only absorbed in a certain amount at one time, the excess is then passed out. With a dose of 1000 mg per tablet, the body receives a constant and slow supply of vitamin C for up to 8 hours.
