Vitamin C (ascorbate) is in the news again. A recent study has once again shown that vitamin C benefits the immune system. As the body’s premier antioxidant, vitamin C halts oxidative stress and induces repair. It is this feature of vitamin C that gets us back on our feet again when we have a cold or the flu.
In this recent study vitamin C supplementation decreased cold severity and duration. Vitamin C also improved physical activity levels and decreased fatigue.
When selecting a vitamin c supplement, choose a fully reduced vitamin C in the l-ascorbate form and fully buffered with minerals like zinc, magnesium, potassium and calcium.
