Why pH-buffered vitamin C?
The most common form of vitamin C in dietary supplements is ascorbic acid, but this form is very acidic and can therefore irritate on sensitive stomachs. Healthwell Vitamin pH-Neutral instead contains calcium ascorbate, which is a compound of ascorbate (vitamin C) and calcium which is an alkaline mineral. This results in a gentler form of the vitamin that is kinder on the stomach. In addition, acid-neutral vitamin C has a longer half-life, which means that the substance remains in the body for a longer time after ingestion. This is in contrast to ascorbic acid, which needs to be replenished continuously to provide the desired effect.
In Healthwell Vitamin C pH-neutral, we have also added citrus bioflavonoids and rosehip extracts that interact with vitamin C in a beneficial way. This compound occurs naturally in the plant world and contributes both to the uptake and the effect of vitamin C in the body. Rosehips are also rich in a variety of other healthy nutrients.
Vitamin C in the body
Vitamin C is linked to several important functions in the body, including helping the immune system to function normally. Vitamin C is also an antioxidant that protects the body's cells from being broken down. In addition, the vitamin contributes to collagen production and iron absorption in the body.
The recommended dose is 1 tablet per day, but this can be increased to 2 tablets spread out during the day if necessary. Start with one tablet daily to test your tolerance level. If you do not want to swallow the tablets whole, it is a good idea to divide them as needed.
