Vitamin C or ascorbic acid is one of the most well-known vitamins nowadays. If you randomly stop someone at the gym or in the street and ask him/ her what is the main benefit of Vitamin C, the odds are sky high that he or she would answer that it brings more energy!
And this is correct! But actually Vitamin C has a few more tricks up its sleeves.
Vitamin C contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue, which is in line with the energy benefit. It is also a great antioxidant, protecting our cells from the oxidative stress, and plays a key role in promoting a nice looking skin (vitamin C supports the normal collagen formation). And, last but not least, this is for you the sports lovers, Vitamin C contributes to maintain the normal function of the immune system during and after intense exercise! What does that mean? Because you will be full of energy and your immune system will be up and running, you will be less prone to catch a small chill. Consequence: you can hit the gym, run, train, play with your kids or do whatever you need to do, as you want, without being slowed down by a cold!
Vitamin C cannot be synthetized by the body – otherwise that would be too easy hum – that’s why a balanced and varied diet that comprises sources of Vitamin C is important.
NXT Level team has put together a formula that contains 1g of Vitamin C, topped up with a synergistic dose of bioflavonoids from Citrus, to support a better absorption of the vitamin by the body.
