Bevko Vitamins has three forms of vitamin C: powder, capsules and tablets, all of which are buffered with minerals to make them non-acidic and extremely well tolerated. Our Vitamin C Powder is buffered with Calcium, Magnesium, Potassium and Zinc.
Vitamin C is a water-soluble vitamin that is important for many activities in the bodies of both humans and animals. Unlike an animal’s body, though, the human body is unable to manufacture this critical vitamin. We must make sure we get enough through diet or supplements!
How Does Vitamin C Function in the Body?
Vitamin C has a critical role in many functions of the body because it:
acts as an antioxidant
detoxifies free radicals
strengthens the immune system
reduces the risk of a number of diseases
helps form energy
helps heal wounds and bones
helps reduce high blood pressure
repairs collagen, the base substance for supporting bodily structures like tendons
helps form neurotransmitters like norepinephrine, serotonin, and dopamine
contributes to red blood cell production in bone marrow
There are a number of critical situations where your body uses more vitamin C than normal, meaning you could be put at risk for a deficiency. You should be sure to take extra vitamin C if you are:
- under a lot of stress
- fighting an infection
- dealing with increased levels of toxins
- undergoing an allergic reaction
Is Vitamin C Important? YES!!!
A deficiency of vitamin C may lead to:
- slow healing
- bruising easily
- bone bruises
- skin hemorrhages
- loss of appetite
- scurvy (in severe cases)
As we age, we are more likely to be deficient in Vitamin C, because of the body's decreasing ability to absorb healthy minerals. Vitamin C helps individuals absorb extra calcium and iron in order to keep blood, bones, tendons, and cell reproduction healthy.
