    Features :

    • Immune system support: Vitamin C appears to be known for its immunomodulatory action. It facilitates the movement of the various immune cells in the blood so that they can reach the area attacked by pathogens more quickly. It strengthens and promotes the reaction of neutrophils, the cells of the immune system that constitute the first line of defence against infections.
    • Antioxidant action: vitamin C has a very important antioxidant role because it protects our vital molecules (proteins, lipids, DNA) which are attacked every day by free radical residues. It also allows the regeneration of the reduced (active) form of vitamin E, forming, with it, a protection system against cellular ageing caused by oxidative stress.
    • Stimulates collagen synthesis: Vitamin C stimulates the synthesis of collagen, the most important and abundant structural protein in the human body. Collagen provides strength and cohesion to joints, muscles, blood vessels, bones, teeth and skin. As its name suggests, collagen holds together, for example, the different layers of the skin, giving them strength, elasticity and firmness.
    • Supports nervous system function: Vitamin C is essential to the efficiency of the nervous system: it is necessary for the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters and hormones, including serotonin and noradrenaline, which are useful for maintaining a good mood. The optimisation of memory and cognitive processes is also supported by the improvement of the integrity of the blood vessels that supply the brain.
    • Vitamin C promotes the reduction of iron (from ferric to ferrous), making it more absorbable in the intestines, with an increase in its bioavailability: iron is essential for the formation of haemoglobin, in red blood cells, and myoglobin, in muscle tissue. This prevents the onset of fatigue and premature tiredness, often due to sideropenic anaemia (iron deficiency).

    1. Supports the immune system

    Vitamin C would seem to be recognised an immunomodulatory actionas it activates and sustains the appropriate response to pathogens but, at the same time, prevents excessive damage to the body induced by an excessive immune reaction.

    Facilitates the movement of different immune cells in the blood, so that they can reach the area attacked by pathogens more quickly. Strengthens and supports the reaction of the neutrophils, cells of the immune system that represent the first line of defence against infection.It also participates in the synthesis of IgM and IgG class antibodies and interferons, which protect cells from viral attacks.

    2. Antioxidant action

    Vitamin C has a very important antioxidant roleas it protects our vital molecules (proteins, lipids, DNA) that are attacked by free radicals every day.

    A massive production of these molecules can damage tissues to the point of causing real diseases: 'bad' cholesterol (LDL) becomes a threat to health precisely when it is oxidised by free radicals, a condition that favours the development of cardiovascular diseases.

    Vitamin C also enables the regeneration of the reduced (active) form of vitamin E by forming, together with it, a protection system against cellular ageing caused by oxidative stress.

    3. Reduce recovery time

    Vitamin C stimulates collagen synthesis, the most important and abundant structural protein in the human body. Collagen provides strength and cohesion to joints, muscles, blood vessels, bones, teeth and skin.

    As its name suggests, collagen holds the different layers of the skin together, giving it strength, elasticity and tone. With advancing age, collagen production decreases, skin loses firmness, muscles lose mass, bones become brittle, cartilage thins and blood vessels also weaken.

    The loss of integrity and cohesion of these structures promotes diseases such as arthrosis, osteoporosis, muscle weakness, wrinkles, cardiovascular diseases, arteriosclerosis, etc. Vitamin C supplementation is of considerable importance for combat the physiological decrease in collagen which becomes more pronounced with advancing age.

    4. Supports nervous system function

    Vitamin C is essential for the efficiency of the nervous system: is in fact necessary for the synthesis of certain neurotransmitters and hormones, including serotonin and noradrenaline, which are useful for maintaining a good mood.

    A study revealed that vitamin C deficiency also negatively affects GABA: low levels of this neurotransmitter are associated with anxiety disorders, insomnia and depressive states.

    The optimisation of memory and cognitive processes is also supported by an improvement in the integrity of the blood vessels that supply the brain.

    5. Stimulates iron absorption with reduction of fatigue

    Vitamin C promotes the reduction of iron (ferric to ferrous), making this mineral more absorbable in the intestine, with an increase in its bioavailability: iron is essential for the formation of haemoglobin, in red blood cells, and myoglobin, in muscle tissue.

    The correct absorption of iron will allow oxygen not only to be better transported to the tissues (thanks to haemoglobin), but also to be stored in higher quantities in the muscle tissue (thanks to myoglobin), where it will be exploited for the production of energy required for muscle contraction.

    All this prevents the onset of fatigue and premature fatigue, symptoms often attributable to sideropenic anaemia (iron deficiency).

    Scurvy: vitamin C deficiency

    Hippocrates described the disease as follows: 'the mouth feels bad, the gums come loose from the teeth, blood flows from the nostrils, ulcerations on the legs, the skin is thin'.
    In addition to increased susceptibility to infections, the Vitamin C deficiency prevents the production of collagen, leading, in severe cases, to scurvy.The weakening of vessels, due to the reduction of collagen, facilitates their rupture resulting in widespread haemorrhaging: the inability to repair any tears compromises the integrity and well-being of various structures including skin, bones, muscles, teeth, gums, cartilage and blood vessels.
