Buffered vitamin C 500mg - 100 tablets

Buffered vitamin C: especially gentle on the stomach


Buffered vitamin C in the form of calcium ascorbate is a stomach-friendly form and the gentle alternative to common vitamin C. The vitamin is bound to calcium. Therefore it is not present in the acidic ascorbic acid form, but in the basic form.

Role of vitamin C in the human organism

Vitamin C is one of the water-soluble vitamins. It disaggregates quickly and is used up in the body fast. On average, there are only 1.5 to 3.5 grams of vitamin C in the body. The greatest part of it can be found in the brain, liver, spleen, lungs, eye lenses and white blood cells, where it plays a major role.
The human body is not able to synthesise vitamin C itself or store it, which is why it has to be taken in through food constantly. Vitamin C helps to protect the body cells and keeps them healthy. Furthermore, it is involved in the collagen formation. Collagen is an important component of the connective tissue, skin, bones and blood vessels.

Cell protection and immune system

As an excellent antioxidant, vitamin C is able to ward off free radicals.

Free radicals are waste products of the metabolism or enter our body in the form of environmental toxins. They only contain one electron and are therefore very reactive. Additionally, they steal electrons from other molecular compounds and change them into free radicals as well, which leads to a chain reaction. Because free radicals are always looking for electrons they can steal, they disturb important metabolic processes. They attack important proteins and cell walls or even the genetic material (DNA), which causes damages on various body cells. Vitamin C is able to neutralise free radicals by preventing a reaction with oxygen, an oxidation.
