Vitamin C + Rosehip & Bioflavonoids from THE PROTEIN WORKS™ is an enhanced Vitamin C supplement that has been specifically designed for athletes and those who lead an active lifestyle and require a superior level of antioxidant and immune system support. Made using only premium grade ingredients, TPW™ Vitamin C tablets form a core part of any supplement programme.
Vitamin C itself is an incredibly versatile nutrient that plays numerous roles in the body. TPW™ Vitamin C + Rosehip & Bioflavonoids has been improved with what nutritionists call "nature's biological response modifiers" to enhance the absorption and effect of Vitamin C.
Vitamin C (also known as ascorbic acid), is a vitamin that cannot be stored or produced by the body. This is why it's imperative we supply our bodies with enough through dietary sources and supplementation. This is especially important for those who lead a busy lifestyle, since although Vitamin C has many roles within the human body, one of its most important is to support the immune system during periods of intense training and stress. This is because in a healthy young adult, the immune system functions efficiently and can stop the detrimental effects of any virus before it becomes too severe.
However, research shows that when you train intensely and or near exhaustion, your oxygen usage skyrockets. This in turn causes an increase in lactic acid accumulation in the muscles, which in turn cases your body to pull alkaline reserves from bones and other mineral dense sources. Not to mention muscle tissue being torn and Adenosine Triphosphate levels in the muscles becoming depleted. Ultimately the body becomes weak and prone to viruses. Studies show Vitamin C supplementation can help support the immune system ensuring you can continue to train hard without overtraining.
Whilst Vitamin C + Rosehip & Bioflavonoids is often praised for its health promoting properties, it's fat loss and muscle building potential is also impressive too. Firstly, Vitamin C is required for the production of specific molecules that are used in the oxidation, or metabolism, of fatty tissue. If the body doesn't have enough Vitamin C it's unable to use stored fat effectively as a form of energy. Secondly, Vitamin C has also been shown to reduce cortisol levels. Cortisol can become elevated after a hard training session and can make the body more predisposed to slowed recovery and fat storage. Plus, for male athletes, Vitamin C supplementation can improve your t-level and cortisol ratio, meaning you're better able to build lean muscle mass.
