VITAMIN C POWDER
VITAMIN C POWDER
Suggested Usage: Mix 1 scoop in 8oz of water.
My Vitamin C Powder formula is part of my daily routine during the winter months, when traveling or when I feel my immune system needs a boost
This formula of Vitamin C Powder is 3 times more potent than my capsule formula. The Vitamin C capsule provides 1 gram of Vitamin C, while a serving of Vitamin C Powder provides 3 grams of Vitamin C powder. As if that were not enough, I have added other ingredients of great importance for the good function of the immune system Zinc, Bromelain, Quercetin and l-lysine. Unlike other vitamin C powders, my formula has buffered acidity, making it an ideal supplement for children, adults, and the elderly.
Humans do not make our own vitamin C. As a result, we need to get it from our diet and supplements. It is a powerful antioxidant and plays a critical role in many of the body's functions in addition to immune function.
Vitamin C promotes the healing of cuts, broken bones, and burns by assisting collagen production. It has also been shown that vitamin C supports oral and brain health, reduces stress, increases nutrient availability and improves energy levels. It reduces the risk of cataracts later in life, which can be caused by excessive sun exposure. As an antioxidant, vitamin C assists in regulating blood pressure, cholesterol, and blood sugar levels. It an antioxidant that is known to help brighten, soften, and refresh the appearance of dull skin.
Vitamin C is an essential nutrient that must be consumed regularly to prevent deficiency. The daily intake of this nutrient is an easy step you can take to ensure that your body receives the support it needs to reduce the risk factors for chronic illnesses.
The Ingredients Within
Vitamin C- As an antioxidant, vitamin C helps protect against unstable atoms, that come from environmental pollutants. Antioxidants like these are also essential for maintaining a healthy immune system. To combat substances like bacteria and viruses, your immune system produces histamine. The production of histamine is triggered by allergens, causing seasonal conditions such as sneezing, tearing, and excess mucus. Vitamin C prevents the production of histamine, whereas antihistamines interfere with its function once it has been released. In studies, vitamin C deficiency has been linked to weakened immune systems, which increases your risk of infection.
Quercetin - Quercetin is a pigment (flavonoid) that is known for its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. There are many plants and foods that contain it, such as red wine, onions, green tea, apples, and berries.
As an antioxidant, it protects cells against oxidative damage. During oxidative damage, free radicals overwhelm the body's antioxidant defenses. There is evidence that quercetin can reduce inflammation in the body. This flavonoid has often been used to help soothe skin related issues associated with seasonal allergies by promoting normal histamine levels
Bromelain – Bromelain has been used as a potent anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling agent since the ancient times. It is a complex mixture of endopeptidases derived from pineapple stems, fruits, and juice as well as enzyme inhibitors related to phosphatase, glucosidase, peroxidase, cellulase, esterase, and protease. There is evidence that bromelain's anti-inflammatory effects may be beneficial for people with asthma and other allergic respiratory diseases. Additionally, there was a pilot study that showed bromelain tablets may be effective in alleviating the symptoms of chronic sinusitis, such as swelling, congestion, and pain.
Zinc- In your body, zinc is one of the most common minerals. Almost 100 enzymes in the body use zinc to function. It plays many roles and is crucial for the health of all cells, tissues, organs, and bones. Studies have shown that adequate zinc contributes to respiratory health, even when you are confronted with seasonal challenges. Additionally, zinc contributes to the production of progesterone, cortisol, and aldosterone, hormones necessary for good health and a proper inflammatory response.
L-Lysine HCL-L-Lysine is regarded as one of the "indispensable amino acids" since it cannot be produced by the body and must be obtained through diet and supplementation. Despite its importance as a building block for protein, this amino acid is so much more. In addition to supporting your immune system, L-Lysine also helps support the quality of your skin, bones and tissue.
Calcium: I generally do not recommend the consumption of calcium because it exists as an added mineral in an endless number of products and its deficiency is not usually the result of a deficiency, but the consequence of not being able to absorb it due to a lack of the nutrients that collaborate with its transport. and absorption namely Vitamin K2 and magnesium, among others. In this formula I have added it to act as a buffer against the innate acidity of Vitamin C (Ascobic Acid).
What is a Vitamin C Deficiency?
It can take months for severe vitamin C deficiency symptoms to manifest, but there are some warning signs to watch out for.
Bruising easily- In the absence of Vitamin C, blood vessels weaken, resulting in easy bruising. It's often one of the first signs of vitamin C deficiency.
Dry, Damaged Skin- Vitamin C deficiency is associated with dry, sun-damaged skin, but other factors can also contribute to these symptoms.
Unexplained Weight Gain- There is evidence that low vitamin C intake leads to increased body fat in humans. However, other factors, such as the quality of the diet, can also contribute.
Corkscrew-Shaped Body Hair- a symptom of vitamin C deficiency, but they can be difficult to detect because they fall out more easily.
Rough, bumpy skin-Vitamin C deficiency can cause acne-like bumps on the arms, thighs, or buttocks. A deficiency cannot be diagnosed based solely on these bumps.
Spoon-Shaped Fingernails with Red Spots or Lines- A deficiency in vitamin C results in spoon-shaped fingernails and red lines or spots beneath the nail bed.
Slow Healing- A vitamin C deficiency slows wound healing by interfering with tissue formation. Other signs and symptoms of deficiency may appear before this advanced sign.
Painful, swollen joints- Having swollen, painful joints is often caused by vitamin C deficiency. Occasionally, bleeding can occur within the joints, causing painful swelling.
Weak Bones- A vitamin C deficiency can lead to weak and brittle bones, as vitamin C promotes bone formation.
Bright Red Hair Follicles-Hair follicles contain many tiny blood vessels that can rupture due to a vitamin C deficiency, causing bright red marks to appear.
Bleeding Gums and Tooth Loss- A deficiency of vitamin C can result in red, bleeding gums and tooth loss.
The immune system relies heavily on vitamin C. Vitamin C deficiency can lead to infection and even death in severe cases.
Fatigue and Poor Mood-Fatigue and poor mood can occur even with low-to-normal levels of vitamin C, but with adequate amounts of vitamin C these symptoms are quickly reversed.
Chronic Inflammation- Antioxidants such as vitamin C have health benefits, while low intakes may increase inflammation and oxidative stress.
CAUTION: Consult a physician if pregnant/nursing, taking medication, or have a medical condition. Keep out of reach of children.
