Vitamin C that is gentle on the stomach
VITAMIN C (ascorbic acid) is an essential, water-soluble nutrient that cannot be stored in the body. As humans cannot make vitamin C on their own, daily dietary intake is important to ensure optimal cellular function, growth and development.
Among the most recognised benefits of vitamin C is in promoting the body’s immune system. Vitamin C is a potent antioxidant that blocks some of the damage caused by free radicals – substances that damage DNA. The build-up of free radicals over time may contribute to the ageing process and the development of health conditions.
In addition, vitamin C is an essential component for the body to make collagen and elastin, which is a part of normal cartilage.
The North American Dietary Reference Intake recommends an intake of 90mg per day and no more than two grams (2,000mg) of vitamin C per day.
A balanced diet without supplementation usually contains enough vitamin C to prevent scurvy in an average healthy adult. However, people who do not have a diet rich in vitamin C, who are pregnant, smoke tobacco or are under stress may require a supplement. *pH neutral
Most vitamin C supplements are in the form of ascorbic acid, but many people suffer stomach discomfort with the acidic form of vitamin C.
Nutriforte Non-Acidic Vitamin C 1,000mg is made from calcium ascorbate, making it pH neutral and gentle on the stomach.
When calcium, magnesium or potassium mineral salts, known in chemistry as “bases”, are combined with ascorbic acid, a substance that resists changes in pH results.
Therefore, buffered vitamin C helps maintain your body’s pH balance, which makes it gentle on your stomach and decreases your risk of gastrointestinal discomfort.
Added minerals such as calcium promote strong bones, teeth and ligaments.
Nutriforte Non-Acidic Vitamin C also contains natural bioflavonoids, which increase the beneficial effect of vitamin C by preventing it from being destroyed by oxidation in the body.
These bioflavonoids also work synergistically to increase the absorption of vitamin C in the body.
