Many researches claim that the recommended application of vitamin C is in fact a minimal dose, essential for better functioning of the organism and it is a dose decidedly too small and insufficient to achieve the best benefits. The need for vitamin C is an individual feature. It is believed that in order to check the dose our organism needs, it is best to take a certain amount of vitamin C every 15 minutes until the organism is satiated, which will be manifested as a laxative effect. However, this rule will not work in case of vitamin C contained in this preparation.
Sodium ascorbate contained in the preparation, contrary to pure ascorbic acid, is less acidic, thanks to which it doesn’t irritate the stomach and doesn’t cause intestinal discomfort and consequently – it may be used by people with the sensitive digestive system. Additionally, the application of its liposomal form helps to reach proper places, skipping digestive processes, which decreases the risk of the laxative effect.
Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) it is a vitamin soluble in body fluids, can be taken from foods (fruits and vegetables), or as drug derived synthetically. The largest of its resources can be found in broccoli, Brussels sprout, kale, black currant fruit and hawthorn, citrus fruits, tomatoes, Savoy cabbage, potatoes. In fact, intake of vitamin C of the food products does not limit the absorbed quantity. Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is a potent antioxidant, it is an antitoxic, increasing the immune system due to the elimination of risk of bacterial contamination. Vitamin C prevents rupture of blood vessels, affects the blood cholesterol level. It substantially increases the absorption of iron. Inhibits the growth of cancer cells. Lowers stress levels.
Vitamin C deficiency causes abnormal development of connective tissue, cracking capillaries, abnormal calcification of bone tissue, impaired absorption of iron, scorbutus. With the lack of vitamin C, all kinds of injuries do not heal up properly. Vitamin C deficiency can be caused by smoking; each cigarette is destroying up to 100 mg of vitamin C.
Dosage: The demand is 60-80 mg daily. It does not limit the ability to consume higher doses. Some side effects may occur only with longer taking of synthetic vitamin C.
Sodium ascorbate is an organic chemical compound that is a salt of ascorbic acid and sodium. In other words, it is a buffered vitamin C. It is characterized by much lower acidity than L-ascorbic acid, and thus does not exert such a strong effect on the membrane of the gastric mucosa. Sodium ascorbate works well in people with a sensitive digestive system, who suffer from gastrointestinal problems following administration of vitamin C in a traditional form. However, it is not recommended for people on a low-sodium diet.
In supplementation, sodium ascorbate is used to replenish the level of vitamin C. It is a part of oxidation-reduction systems, protects the body against free radicals and oxidative stress. In addition, Vitamin C is necessary for the proper course of collagen production; it acts as a cofactor in the synthesis of carnitine and adrenaline and influences the metabolism of non-heme plant-based iron.
Dosing: the minimum daily demand for vitamin C is 60-80mg, whereas in case of smokers, pregnant women, people exposed to stress or intense effort it is much higher. It is assumed that 1g of sodium ascorbate corresponds to 0.889g of L-ascorbic acid.
Sodium is an important component of the intracellular fluids, and is a regulator of acid-base balance. Along with potassium affects the proper of growth and provides the proper functioning of muscles and nerves. The source of acquisition is table salt (NaCl) and bladderwrack, shellfish, bacon, beef, and of plant beets and carrots. People on salt-free diet should avoid, among others, spicy sauces and smoked meats and sausages.
Sodium deficiency is very rare, at heaving sweating after a long effort (e.g. in the marathon).
Excess sodium increases blood pressure (especially for the elderly), edema and increased thirst. Exceeding the daily dose of 14g a day can cause poisoning.
Lecithin is part of the phospholipids (lipid complex), beneficial for the function of the cardiovascular system and blood lipid profile and fat metabolism. It is a source of choline which is a precursor of acetylcholine (neurotransmitter) that affects the nervous system, including inositol (stabilizer of the copper and zinc balance in the body). It improves concentration, cognition and memory. Forms a colloidal suspension of a liquid in the fat (emulsification) allowing for their use in the food industry. It is a component of dietary supplements supporting the work of the central nervous system, blood circulation, accelerating weight loss and in protein, carbohydrate-protein supplement as an emulsifier, available at www.muscle-zone.pl
Dosage: as per the prescription, customarily 1 - 10 g / 24h
