What can I expect from Vitamin C?
Hardly any other vitamin has been the subject of so many uniform studies that show that it is important for the proper functioning of your organism. You should, therefore, avoid a vitamin C deficiency at all costs.
However, there is disagreement about the actual daily requirement of vitamin C. Recommendations in literature and practice vary between 100 mg and mega doses such as 10,000 mg a day.
It is undisputed, however, that vitamin C is involved in ensuring that your immune system functions normally (even during and after training). Vitamin C also helps maintain normal energy metabolism and reduces fatigue. It is also important to emphasize the importance of vitamin C in normal collagen formation, which is important for the proper functioning of joints, teeth, gums, skin, bones and blood vessels.
