Vitamin C provides vital protection for the immune system, particularly after intense period of exercise and contributes to normal collagen formation and the normal function of cartilage. Each delicious, chewable Healthspan Elite Vitamin C tablet delivers 500mg of vitamin C along with 16mg of mixed citrus bioflavonoids which support the beneficial actions of vitamin C.

Regular exercise is associated with a reduced incidence of illness and infection, however long periods of strenuous exercise can temporarily depress various aspects of the immune system. Travel can also impact the immune system, so it is important to provide your body with sufficient nutrition support on the go.

The immunity supporting benefits of vitamin C are widely known and recent research has demonstrated that vitamin C can also protect the immune system during periods of intense activity. Other benefits of vitamin C include the reduction of tiredness and fatigue and its contribution to normal collagen formation and the normal function of cartilage.

Mixed bioflavonoids are believed to support and prolong the actions of vitamin C to deliver the support you need during training and travel.

Product Origins

The vitamin C in our Healthspan Elite tablet is a combination of sodium ascorbate and ascorbic acid. This allows us to deliver a higher dose without causing any stomach discomfort.

Sodium ascorbate is an alkaline (non-acidic) form of vitamin C whereby the vitamin is bound to the mineral salt sodium. The mineral salt buffers lower the acidity of ascorbic acid which means it may be easier to tolerate if your digestive system is sensitive to acid. As an additional benefit the buffered sodium ascorbate may also enter the blood stream at a steadier rate.

Our trusted partner manufactures sodium ascorbate by dissolving pharmaceutical grade ascorbic acid with sodium bicarbonate, derived from sea water. Sodium helps regulate the amount of water in the body and aids the movement of sodium into and out of cells, which plays a critical role in many bodily functions. The pH of sodium ascorbate is almost the same as your blood meaning it can be easily ingested without stressing the body.

Our ascorbic acid is created under state of the art laboratory conditions to create a pure and consistent form. Natural and synthetic ascorbic acid are chemically identical and as confirmed by numerous studies, there appears to be no clinically significant difference in the bioavailability and bioactivity of natural ascorbic acid and synthetic ascorbic acid.
