What is pH-neutral vitamin C good for?
Vitamin C supplements usually come from ascorbic acid, which can be irritating for sensitive stomachs. Instead, Healthwell Vitamin C Powder Acid-neutral contains calcium ascorbate which is gentle on the stomach. Calcium ascorbate is a composition of ascorbate (vitamin C) and the mineral calcium which is alkaline. The body can also more easily absorb calcium ascorbate. In many studies that show positive results when testing with vitamin C in connection with infections, pH-neutral vitamin C has been used.

A powder form gives a very clean and peeled form of vitamin supplements, without unnecessary additives and binders and it is easily absorbed by the body. Powder is suitable if you want to be able to dose an exact desired amount and want as pure a supplement as possible. If you want to test capsules instead, we have the Healthwell Vitamin C.
Vitamin C in the body
Vitamin C is linked to many functions in the body, including its effect on a normal immune system, the most well-known. Vitamin C also acts as an antioxidant and helps counteract oxidative stress, a condition that breaks down our cells. Vitamin C also contributes to the absorption of iron in the body, as well as to the formation of collagen, the protein that maintains hair, skin, nails, cartilage and joints.
Does vitamin C work against viruses?
Vitamin C is one of our most well-known home remedies for colds, and it does not seem to be entirely a myth. Vitamin C is central for the immune system to function optimally against infections. Studies in which vitamin C has been used in an attempt to prevent viruses, it is common to use acid-neutral vitamin C in gram doses. Because vitamin C has a very low toxicity, it is usually not a problem to increase the intake in periods.
