It is very necessary in pathological cases and in high need training. It works in the absorption of iron, reduces triglyceride and cholesterol levels, in addition, it strengthens the immune system, helps in the synthesis of collagen and in the prevention of tissue lesions, helps in the fight against inflammatory processes, as well as oxidative tissue damage, as shown by the study conducted by researchers Jordana Tres Santos, Marise Vilsman Krutzman and Camila Correia Bierhal.
In addition to being used as an antioxidant, vitamin C also helps to grow and maintain the health of the body's cells, especially bones, teeth, gums and blood vessels. It can also fight fatigue, sleep disorders, lack of concentration and is an ally in improving iron absorption in people prone to anemia.
According to the three researchers, vitamin C has a chemical structure that corresponds to the group of water-soluble vitamins, that is, those that dissolve in water. Most of it is not stored in the body and is excreted unchanged in the urine, in faeces in small amounts, in sweat and through respiration as CO².
For this reason it is very important to take 500 mg of vitamin C daily, as reserves are easily depleted and additional intake can be of great benefit in maintaining and balancing vitamin C levels in the body.
