The True Science of Vitamin C
The Linus Pauling Institute has verified that our plasma concentration of Vitamin C is tightly controlled by three primary mechanisms: intestinal absorption, tissue transport, and renal reabsorption.
Plasma concentration will reach a steady-state at concentrations between 60 and 80 μmol/L. This is typically observed at oral doses of between 200mg to 400mg per day of Vitamin C, with some degree of individual variation.
Higher plasma concentrations can only be achieved through the intravenous administration of Vitamin C, achieving a 30-fold to 70-fold higher concentration than the oral route.
The Formulation Matters
Naturally derived Vitamin C from food possesses high compatibility with the cell receptors involved in its absorption. It will also not irritate and upset our stomach.
Very importantly, Vitamin C is an unstable compound that needs to be protected from the environment.
Activa Well Being Starter Vit C is derived naturally from Camu Camu and Acerola fruits to ensure good bioavailability, and formulated using microgranules technology to protect it fully from the environment and our gastric acid.
Each recommended dose of 300mg will ensure that our body have the optimal level to stay healthy without the undue stress to process and remove excess Vitamin C.
Widespread Benefits of Vitamin C
Getting enough Vitamin C is vitally important for good health and longevity as it:
- Supports our immune system to protect us from infections and cancer
- Reduces free radical and oxidative damages to keep us youthful
- Facilitates healing from infections and wounds
- Maintains heart and blood vessels for good circulatory health
- Promotes nervous system and brain health
- Enhance collagen production to strengthen bone, blood vessel and skin
- Increase bioavailability of iron from food
Vitamin C also helps to reduce fatigue and improve concentration so we can cope with the modern hectic lifestyle.
Our adrenal gland is one of the organs with the highest concentration of Vitamin C as it uses Vitamin C to make hormones which help our body to overcome stress.
During stressful times, Vitamin C is readily diverted to the adrenal gland, which risk depriving other bodily systems eg. immune, of Vitamin C unless we supplement consistently.
The Activa Edge
At the heart of Activa products are the microgranules, a patented pharmaceutical dosage form.
Within the microgranules are standardized extracts which have been assembled and blended for perfect biocompatibility and bioavailability.
The microgranules protect the active ingredients, provide a potent dose versus conventional powders, and enable an intelligent and targeted release.
