The effect of vitamin C deficiency on our bodies/strong>
Vitamin C is undoubtedly one of the most important vitamins.
Ascorbic acid is vital for humans and its necessity
is often underestimated
Official recommendations are underestimated, according to conjectures of scientific sources such as the study
of Nobel laureate Linus Pauling.
After all, it participates, among other things, in some metabolic processes, probably more than 15,000 according
to scientists, and is known for its immune-boosting effect.
It renders harmless free radicals, which are waste products of human metabolism
Along with other trace elements such as zinc, it protects cells from oxidation.
It is said to reduce susceptibility to colds by boosting immune defenses but also
It is one of the sensitive vitamins and is quickly destroyed by heat and light.
Most living things are able to make
body vitamin C from glucose by two connecting steps. This ability was most likely lost due to a
gene mutation. This inherited damage millions of years ago ultimately led to
humans' reliance on external supply.
A greatly increased vitamin C requirement exists, among other things, during growth, during
pregnancy and lactation, with long-term use of aspirin, estrogen-containing preparations
such as the pill, cortisone, or proton pump inhibitors, as well as in stress situations (oxidative
stress) and in smokers.
The recommended intake for adults per day according to D-A-CH reference values is 95 mg for
women and 110 mg for men.
People with increased stress levels and free radicals from cigarette smoke in
smokers* are recommended an intake of 135 mg per day and 155 mg per day, respectively.
Pregnant women from the fourth month of pregnancy should reach a daily intake of 105 mg
Smokers* have higher metabolic losses, resulting in lower vitamin C concentrations
in the blood.
Some groups of people experience an increased risk of side effects from excessive
vitamin C intake.
People with a predisposition to urinary or kidney stones, kidney damage, or
hemochromatosis, should not exceed dosages of up to 1000 mg per day to
avoid harmful side effects, as excess vitamin C is sorted out
by the kidneys and excreted in the urine.
Vitamin C is absorbed through the walls of the small intestine.
With the help of transport proteins, it enters the bloodstream and is distributed throughout the body and stored in the
brain, spleen, adrenal gland, and lens of the eye.
During deficiencies, vitamin C is stored more by the brain to maintain
This can lead to organ damage in the long run, however, as organs are denied
Water-soluble vitamins such as vitamin-C can possibly be stored
in the body for days to weeks, while fat-soluble vitamins are stored and consumed in the body for months.
How much of the vitamin is ultimately absorbed through the body depends on
individual needs. Sick individuals and those with known deficiencies
generally need more vitamin C to maintain vitamin C levels in the blood than people
with a whole-food diet.
The vitamin C content in foods in question varies depending on the mode of transport,
storage conditions as well as preparation.
When processing foods, external influences such as intense heat and water solubility
of the vitamin itself can be lost.
The extended range of effects also includes the reduction of fatigue, regeneration of
vitamin E and improved function of the body's immune defenses.
Furthermore, it is said to positively influence the function of the nervous system as well as the psyche and
supports collagen formation, which leads to the normal function of bones, cartilage, blood vessels
as well as teeth and gums.
The vitamin improves iron absorption by up to four times.
It protects cells from premature aging processes and can improve the appearance of the skin.
The all-rounder continues to be important for cholesterol and fat metabolism, for the formation
of hormones and messenger substances in the brain, and slows the formation of cancer-causing
nitrosamines during the digestive process.
Because humans cannot produce ascorbic acid themselves, it is essential to supply
this vitamin to the body.
If one permanently ingests too little of it, this causes the so-called disease scurvy.
Scurvy was then one of the most common causes of death among seafarers who had no access to foods containing vitamin C during their periods
on the high seas.
Even in today's age, scurvy still occurs.
Affected infants suffer from "Möller-Barlow syndrome," the cause of which, however, is the
Vitamin C is the most important vitamin in the body.
Vitamin C deficiency manifests itself, among other things, in bleeding gums, inflammation of the gums
bishin to tooth loss, impaired wound healing,susceptibility to infection, joint pain, inflammation
of joints, muscle atrophy, impaired digestion, fatigue, states of exhaustion up to
depression and heart failure.
All these symptoms, however, can also have other causes.
So-called calcium ascorbate is vitamin-C enriched with calcium.
Calcium ascorbate is extremely stomach-friendly and provides the body with bioavailable vitamin-
Calcium ascorbate is better tolerated than pure
ascorbic acid, despite a high concentration of 83% ascorbic acid.
This is especially true for people with sensitive stomachs, who do
not tolerate pure ascorbic acid well.
Unlike conventional vitamin C preparations, it is pH neutral and does not disturb the acid-base balance due to its
neutral properties, as it is free of acid.
Thus, calcium ascorbate ensures better stomach tolerance, so it can be dosed
higher than pure ascorbic acid.
Another advantage of combining calcium ascorbate and vitamin c is the high
This means that the sensitive vitamin is retained in the organism for longer.
This means that more ascorbic acid can be used for biochemical processes in the body.
In this way, the cells are continuously
supplied with small amounts over a longer period of time.
Ascorbic acid can be taken in higher doses
than pure ascorbic acid.
Ascorbic acid requires calcium to be able to act in the organism. If vitamin C is absorbed without this
compound, it deprives the necessary calcium from the bone tissue.
To prevent possible damage to the bones, we offer from Euro Nutrador an ascorbic acid mixed with
Our retard capsules are a unique, synergistic combination of vitamin C
and calcium ascorbate, which achieve significantly higher bioavailability than conventional
vitamin C supplements.
Our high-quality preparation contains calcium ascorbate with high bioavailability.
At the same time, it has the advantage that as an alkaline compound, it is stomach-friendly and thus better
tolerated than the pure form of ascorbic acid.
We recommend 1 capsule before or during a meal for optimal supplementation..
Our calcium ascorbate is the calcium salt of ascorbic acid
This is a food additive with EU - approval (E 302).
This substance is of natural origin and safe to use.
Our high quality standards are important to us For this we have our products regularly in
Laboratory tested for pharmaceutical quality.
1 capsule Vitamin C from Euro Nutrador B.V. contains: 1000 mg Calcium Ascorbate
1000 mg corresponds to 897 mg ascorbic acid (RDA 1495%) in controlled and highest quality.
