Quest Vitamin C is an essential water-soluble vitamin and antioxidant that should be consumed daily. Vitamin C has a short half-life which is where the advantage of a timed release tablet comes in. A steady supply of vitamin C to the body tissues is beneficial in some situations. Citrus bioflavonoids work with vitamin C to increase the body’s antioxidant defences against free radicals and increase the absorption of vitamin C synergistically.
Vitamin C is needed for the immune system to function effectively. It is required for the activation of Natural Killer cells, and without it their function is impaired. Vitamin C also contributes towards antioxidant protection due to its action as a free radical scavenger. Vitamin C is required for the adrenal glands to function optimally, and quickly becomes used up in periods of stress, decreasing immune system capacity and increasing the incidences of infections. Low levels of vitamin C are associated with increased risk of cardiovascular disease due to its antioxidant properties, and its necessity for collagen which maintains elasticity in the blood vessel wall. Vitamin C contributes to collagen production and is needed for the main structural tissues in the body such as skin, gums, bones, teeth and cartilage found in joints. Vitamin C helps with the absorption of iron, needed for haemoglobin and oxygen transportation around the body. The current recommendation of vitamin C intake is the minimum amount needed to prevent deficiency symptoms in a healthy adult. This does not take into account chronic stress states, increased demand in times of illness or heart disease.
- High potency 6 hour timed release formula.
- With citrus bioflavonoids to increase the absorption of vitamin C.
Why take Quest Vitamin C:
Decreasing cortisol: Chronically elevated cortisol suppresses the function of the immune system which decreases resistance to infections. Vitamin C decreases symptoms associated with stress.
Immune cells: Immune cells accumulate vitamin C, with phagocytes storing the most vitamin C. Vitamin C is also a powerful antioxidant that protects the DNA of immune cells.
Antioxidant: Vitamin C enhances glutathione recovery after an oxidative challenge, protecting the body from oxidative damage even further.
Atherosclerosis: Vitamin C works in multiple ways to help protect cardiovascular health. Its powerful antioxidant action helps to prevent the oxidation of cholesterol and moderately lowers cholesterol, helping to prevent and slow the progression of atherosclerosis and improving endothelial function.
Blood pressure: Vitamin C is required for the maintenance of collagen, and reduces both systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Collagen: Vitamin C is required to hydroxylate proline and lysine which creates procollagen. Procollagen is converted into collagen by 3 enzymes. Collagen is the main structural component in the body. Collagen is particularly important for the health of the bones, teeth, skin, gums and blood vessels.
