Vitamin C is one of the best known nutrients.
Unlike most animals, humans cannot produce them by themselves. They must therefore regularly provide it with food.
Vitamin C is extremely sensitive to the effects of light, high temperature and humidity - p the average loss of vitamin C due to heat treatment can be 40 to 70%. Keeping already cooked food at elevated temperature or refrigerating it overnight can reduce its content by 60-80%. Insufficient vitamin C intake is common in our population, especially in the winter-spring season, when the choice of products containing this vitamin is limited and its content is low. That is why it is so important to provide vitamin C in the form of a dietary supplement.
Like any vitamin dissolved in water, it is not stored in the body, therefore its excess within a few hours (and even faster under physical stress) is excreted from the body. Thanks to modern production methods, there are preparations with sustained release (Delayed Release Technology), ensuring gradual absorption into the blood and constant level of vitamin C in the body.
