Vitamin C and its history
"Extremely versatile!" Vitamin C (also called ascorbic acid) is a substance with a spectacular history. Its discovery begins with the maritime disease scurvy. Scurvy was one of the most common and serious diseases on sea travels and the result of a mostly one-sided diet and the lack of fresh food.
When the sailors started suffering more and more from physical discomfort, the ship's doctor "James Lind" investigated scurvy for the first time: He divided the sea crew into 6 groups and gave them different foods. He quickly observed that the symptoms of the group receiving citrus fruit disappeared quickly. In the 18th century, for example, it was already possible to determine how vitally important selected ingredients are in certain foods and then the foundation for the discovery of powerful vitamin C was laid.
After this groundbreaking discovery, it was clear that vitamin C is an essential substance, which means that it cannot be produced by our body itself. As a result of its water-soluble properties, ascorbic acid is not stored in the organism and is therefore easily excreted. For us this means: we have to take the substance regularly with the food.
A deficiency of vitamin C - as in the case of scurvy of the sea travelers - has dramatic consequences for the body. Thus, a vitamin C deficiency is becoming noticeable through a bad wound healing, infection susceptibility, fatigue or bleeding gums noticeable.
How does our vitamin C powder work?
Here are just a few examples of the versatility of our Vitamin C powder:
• Vital vitamin C contributes to the normal functioning of the immune system and supports the body's defense against pathogens.
• Vitamin C helps protect cells from oxidative stress.
• Ascorbic acid is an antioxidant, which means it can neutralize free radicals. Free radicals are aggressive oxygen particles that attack the body's cells.
• The excellent vitamin C supports normal collagen formation. Collagen is a protein that is an essential component of connective tissue, and therefore important for the normal functioning of blood vessels, bones, cartilage, gums, teeth and skin.
• Vitamin C powder helps to reduce fatigue, exhaustion and normal nervous system function, mental function and energy metabolism.
Who should take our vitamin C powder?
Especially people with a one-sided diet or in special situations (e.g. obese people, smokers, people with sensitive blood vessels or weak connective tissue, people with weakened immune systems as well as stressful everyday life, athletes, pregnant and lactating women or people who regularly consume alcohol) have an increased need for vitamin C. You should pay attention to a sufficient supply of ascorbic acid intake in order not to endanger your health in the long term.

For how long should I better consume the ascorbic acid powder
Our vitamin C powder is suitable for long-term use as needed.
Expert tip from our nutritionists: As vitamin C is a good “partner” for vitamin E and iron absorption, it is recommended to take ascorbic acid before the main meals or to consume it together with vitamin E and iron products. Overall, this combination contributes to the regeneration of the reduced (active) form of vitamin E and increases iron absorption.
Application tip: Add some vitamin C powder over your fruit salad, by this way the cut fruit will not turn brown and will last longer. Vitamin C acts as antioxidant, and thus provides protection against oxygen. The ascorbic acid prevents oxidation of the fruit surface, which is noticeable through the brown colour when the vitamin is not present.
