Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Supplement (Vitamin C)
Who would not want to live longer and look younger? Asc2P, our magnesium ascorbyl phosphate supplement, may well provide part of the answer.
Asc2P is a rare and very stable form of Vitamin C. It already features as an ingredient in the formulation Telomeres Maintenance, but this form of Vitamin C, with numerous reported beneficial properties, deserves to be considered as a supplement in its own right and taken at an appropriate serving.
Magnesium Ascorbyl Phosphate Benefits
Vitamin C is recognized for the essential role it plays in many of the body’s functions, as well as for its antioxidant effects. The beneficial effects of Vitamin C have been scientifically shown to help protect the body against cellular aging and prevent the development of certain age-related issues.
That is why Vitamin C is considered by some to be an anti-aging vitamin.
In addition to its natural antioxidant activity, Vitamin C is involved in numerous metabolic reactions. Multiple scientific studies have confirmed how important Vitamin C is to the human body, with the following functions among the most widely studied:
- Has a key role in maintaining the immune system, boosting the body’s natural defenses.
- Contributes to the production of red blood cells, responsible for oxygenating the body.
- Participates in the formation of collagen, a protein involved in the mechanical resistance of tissues.
- Structures and maintains tissues, such as the skin, artery walls, ligaments, and bones.
- Contributes to the synthesis of neurotransmitters, such as noradrenalin, which is involved in the transmission of nerve impulses.
- Promotes the body’s absorption of plant-sourced iron.
- Produces carnitine, a molecule involved in the transport and use of fatty acids by the mitochondria for providing energy.
Because of Vitamin C’s importance to our health, it has been shown to both support good health and prevent poor health as well as strengthen the body against common health issues.
Vitamin C for fatigue and stress has been found to have a beneficial impact on self-reported physical health. Given Vitamin C’s role in the immune system and antioxidant potency, a Vitamin C supplement for the immune system may offer significant benefits for a health maintenance routine.
Additionally, studies on Vitamin C and stress and anxiety have shown that Vitamin C may soothe emotional discomfort and promote overall feelings of health and wellness.
Why is it important to maintain Vitamin C levels?
While many mammals are able to produce Vitamin C, humans lost the ability to do so over the course of evolution. In order to meet our daily requirements of Vitamin C, we must, therefore, obtain it from external sources. Though it can be gained through Vitamin C-rich foods, such as fruit and vegetables, it is highly vulnerable to heat and light and is easily destroyed during preparation or cooking.
Nutritional supplementation may be of assistance to ensure an optimal intake and prevent deficiency. Dietary supplements in capsule form protect the vitamin until it is absorbed by the body. In the case of proven deficiency, supplementation may become necessary to restore Vitamin C levels to normal. Without an adequate intake, the body can experience negative side effects, such as extreme fatigue.
