The Super Vitamin that is VITAMIN C : Make Sure You Get Enough

The Super Vitamin that is VITAMIN C

Vitamin C is integral to the formation and maintenance of collagen, found in the skin and joints (connective tissue). It is grossly understated for its role in the formation of Carnitine, a useful fat mobiliser (aids fat burning), and for its role in nervous transmission allowing for more intense muscle contractions. Vitamin C is vital for the absorption of iron, a fundamental component of haemoglobin which is needed for oxygen delivery to the muscles! It is also a potent anti-oxidant which reduces the oxidative process (damage to your body) caused by elevated free radical levels (Kreider, Wilborb, Campbell, 2010).

Ensure you’re not short of this vitamin powerhouse with a daily multi-vitamin
