Vitamin C, also called ascorbic acid, is an important vitamin for health and wellbeing. It can be found in a range of fruits and vegetables but cannot be stored in the body therefore needs to be consumed on a daily basis.
Vitamin C is a very powerful antioxidant, protecting our cells from the effects of free radical damage. It is also important in the production of collagen and therefore has an essential role in normal function of skin, bones, cartilage and teeth.
Vitamin C also helps to maintain normal immune system function during and after intense physical exercise, so it might be worth taking this supplement as part of your post workout routine.
Zinc is an essential mineral that the body cannot produce or store therefore it needs to be consumed through our diet on a daily basis.
Zinc is largely present in meat, shellfish, diary and eggs but also in seeds, nuts and wholegrains - if your diet does not contain these foods then you're at risk of becoming deficient in this important mineral. A supplement is an excellent way of ensuring optimum levels.
Zinc is extremely important to the overall health of the body, it contributes to normal DNA synthesis, normal metabolism, cognitive function, maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails, normal vision and for the proper functioning of the immune system. You may not know that Zinc is also vital for fertility and reproductive health and in men it contributes to the maintenance of normal testosterone levels in the blood.
Our Vitamin C and Zinc formula uses zinc citrate which is more easily absorbed by the body, allowing you to get the maximum benefits from your supplement.
If you're looking to support your overall health and wellbeing and look after your immune system then this vitamin C and zinc supplement is ideal for you.
