Vitamin C 500 mg Vegan Capsules with highest grade Citrus Bioflavonoids
Vitamin C – daily requirement well covered?
Vitamin C is indicated in phases of physical or mental weakness or extreme physical stress, such as marathon training, bodybuilding or other competitive sports. Also indispensable in times of increased risk of infection or in case of already existing colds. It is definitely the number 1 choice as an immune system cure or immune system booster!
And yet this great product can do much more than that. It plays a far greater role in many processes in the human body, so that a deficiency can have far-reaching consequences. Fatigue, joint and muscle pain, varicose veins, oedema (water retention in the tissues), infertility, unexplained bleeding and even bone and joint changes can all indicate a serious vitamin C deficiency.
It is also less known that the recommendation for an increased intake has been made for the following groups:
- Pregnant women
- Breastfeeding women
Patients who regularly take aspirin/ASS (acetylsalicylic acid) should know that this increases the excretion of vitamin C. Diabetes mellitus, stress, dieting or taking the contraceptive pill also increase the risk of a deficiency. Not to be forgotten are (night) shift workers, pain patients, chronically ill people, people in burn-out or in recovery periods after operations etc.
The EFSA (European Food Safety Authority) recommendations for the daily requirement of vitamins are only guidelines for the “minimum requirement to avoid deficiencies”.
However, avoiding a deficiency does not necessarily mean that these dosages are also sufficient for optimal functioning of the body or personal well-being; nor for correcting an existing deficiency. Worldwide, many biochemists, virologists and other health experts therefore advise higher daily intakes, especially for vitamin C!
By the way, vitamin C is considered harmless even in higher dosages. Since it is a water-soluble vitamin, the excess is simply excreted by the kidneys. That’s why we recommend taking it in divided doses throughout the day.
As one of various forms Vitaalia offers , these vitamin capsules are enriched with citrus bioflavonoids as a natural enhancer and are a powerful antioxidant.
