A long-acting Vitamin C.It will strengthen your body's defenses and thanks to its antioxidant properties will help you stay healthy.
Vitamin C is an enzymatic cofactor involved in a number of physiological reactions:
Tissue restoration: allows the formation and restoration of mucous membranes and connective tissue (through collagen) on which minerals and in particular calcium are deposited; what will form the bones, the teeth, the cartilages.
Brain functions: Vitamin C allows the synthesis of certain cerebral amines (dopamine, norepinephrine, adrenaline), mediators of capital importance in the transmission of nerve impulses between neurons.Thus, vitamin C has proven to be a major component of ortho molecular therapies for mental disorders
-Cognition: Attention and the ability to concentrate are conditioned by the production of norepinephrine, which is promoted by vitamin C.
-Depression: Research has also shown that vitamin C improves the condition of patients with depression.
-Insomnia and sleep disorders: It is estimated that nearly half of French people are insomniac, vitamin C deficiency has a role in this, because contrary to popular belief, natural vitamin C is not a stimulant, but a metabolic regulator.Due to the initial activation of the pituitary and adrenal glands, its consumption in unusual doses seems to have, at the very beginning, a doping effect.This first stimulation, which does not in fact exclude insomnia in the event of late intake, gives way after a few days to a simply normalizing effect which, on the contrary, favors the quality of sleep.There is even an extremely interesting anxiolytic effect.
Vitamin C should therefore be widely used in all febrile conditions and infections, whether due to bacteria, viruses, fungi, yeasts or parasites (influenza, coryza, hepatitis, bronchial and lung diseases, tuberculosis, infectious mononucleosis, herpes).
-Strengthening the immune system: White blood cells, guardians of immunity, contain nearly 60x more vitamin C than blood plasma.The reserves are quickly exhausted in the event of disease, infection, or traumatic shock.Various studies have been able to demonstrate that high concentrations of vitamin C allow better mobilization of white blood cells and neutrophils, thus allowing them to attack bacteria much more easily.Vitamin C is also essential for the synthesis of antibodies and therefore has an antiviral effect at high doses (it promotes the synthesis and activity of interferon which prevents the penetration of the virus into the cell).
-Cancer: There is a correlation between a high consumption of foods rich in vitamin C and a low rate of cancer and cardiovascular disease.Regarding stomach cancer, vitamin C would inhibit the harmful action on the mucosa of a bacterium called Helicobacter Pilori.
Vitamin C plays an active and important role in cancer prevention and that low vitamin C content (hypovitaminosis) doubles the statistical risk of cancer.In addition, vitamin C reduces the consequences of the side effects of chemotherapy and radiotherapy, while itself participating in the destruction of malignant cells and preventing their multiplication.Vitamin C would directly fight certain cancer cells without harming healthy tissue.
Antitoxic vitamin C:
-rejection of absorbed poisons: Ascorbic acid inactivates carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide sulphur, and also reduces the effect of carcinogenic substances, so that it provides the only direct protection against air pollution and smoking.
-Smoking: Although for the smoker there is no alteration in the absorption capacity of vitamin C, the fact remains that the body of a smoker consumes much more vitamin C than a non-smoker (each cigarette consumes 25 mg of vitamin C).Its reserves therefore run out very quickly.Supplementation must therefore be accordingly to compensate for losses and to replenish reserves.You should know that vitamin C also acts in the neutralization of benzopyrene and carcinogenic nitrosamines in cigarette smoke.
Cholesterol: Vitamin C regulates lipid metabolism.Long-term administration in sufficient doses helps to reduce the problems of hypercholesterolemia and blood triglycerides.Vitamin C directly accelerates the conversion of cholesterol into bile acids (Lewin), the main way the body uses to get rid of excess cholesterol.
Osteo-articular ailments and pain:
-State of bones and cartilage: The Calcium-Vitamin C combination accelerates d about 30% healing of fractures with a marked strengthening of the bone.Vitamin C is indicated in lumbar pain, and that its use in adequate doses often makes it possible to avoid an operation of the vertebral discs.
-Gout: Taking vitamin C at 8 g/day for just 8 days has been found to lead to a 30% reduction in uric acid blood.It can therefore be used effectively in the prevention and treatment of gout.
-Arthrosis: Basic treatment with vitamin C associated with vitamin E, shark cartilage, and organic silicon (in order to restore the acid-base balance) allows stop and reverse the progression of osteoarthritis (between 15 and 30% improvement visible on radiography after 2 or 3 years of treatment).
Vitamin C and blood:
-Anaemia: Vitamin C helps store plasma iron in the tissues by reducing and releasing ferric ions and thus allowing them to form tight bonds with plasma proteins.
-Coagulation: Scorbutic patients always show a significant decrease in coagulation rates.Vitamin C is one of the essential elements for blood coagulation and therefore to be prescribed in all hemorrhagic syndromes.
-Venous diseases: Vitamin C in combination with bioflavonoids is effective and safe in the treatment of varicose veins, varicose ulcers and hemorrhoids.
