Vitamin C1™ is a water-soluble vitamin that must be obtained in the diet by humans. Vitamin C is a necessary component for collagen formation, one of the primary connective tissue fibers. (Connective tissue forms the fascia that gives muscle shape and strength, tendons, ligaments, bone and cartilage.) Vitamin C is therefore essential for tissue healing, such as from wounds, burns and injuries. Vitamin C also helps on the structural adaptations that results from exercise training such as muscle growth and strengthening of bone.
Vitamin C is also a powerful anti-oxidant, quenching reactive oxygen species (a type of free-radical) produced during intense exercise and stressful situations. The mechanism dealing with post-stress involves free-radical production in the body and several studies have shown a positive effect that vitamin C has as a free radical scavenger. This will help your body recover faster and more efficiently.
Rose hips contain the seeds of the rose plants. Together with vitamin C, they help prevent and treat colds, flu and vitamin C deficiencies. Vitamin C is an excellent immune system booster and natural anti-inflammatory. Taken daily, vitamin C can help improve one's general sense of well-being, mood and quality of life.
