What is Vitamin C Powder and why is vitamin C important?
Vitamin C Powder is a powdered form of premium grade vitamin C. Also known as ascorbic acid, vitamin C is an essential, water-soluble vitamin. As an essential nutrient it is required by the body for normal functioning. It cannot be stored in the body adequate amounts and therefore a food source or supplement is required. This is particularly important for the active population who will require higher levels of vitamin C to support the body's needs.
What are the performance benefits of Vitamin C?
GoNutrition® Vitamin C Powder promotes a healthy immune system and helps maintain optimum functionality by decreasing recovery time between workouts. Beneficial to all athletes in a variety of sports, Vitamin C is especially important to bodybuilders as it plays a key role in the maintenance and repair of healthy connective tissue.
As an antioxidant compound, Vitamin C can reverse some of the oxidative damage caused by free radicals, which are released during intense exercise. Oxidative damage is believed to contribute to many different health conditions, and therefore adequate Vitamin C supplementation can boost immune function and speed recovery.
Vitamin C also increases the bioavailability of dietary iron which can further enhance immune function. Furthermore studies have shown that supplementation with at least 500 mg of vitamin C daily can result in a significant decrease in serum LDL cholesterol and triglyceride concentrations.
