What is Sustained Release Vitamin C? Vitamin C is probably the most well-known and well-studied vitamin, which has been scientifically proven over the last decades, and indeed centuries, to help support many areas of your health, including the function of the immune and nervous systems, as well as the absorption of iron - a nutrient we are most likely to be deficient in. Vitamin C also has a plethora of lesser-known benefits, not least its support to psychological functions and energy levels, and its contribution to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue. It also assists collagen formation - a protein that is important for the normal functioning of blood vessels, skin, teeth, gums, bones and cartilage, the soft tissue that protect our bones at the joints. And it also is an antioxidant, which means that it protects your cells from oxidative stress, helping counteract cell damage caused by environmental factors, such as pollutants and poor diet - which raise the risk of illnesses and premature ageing over time. Why is Healthspan’s better? Not every vitamin C tablet is created equally. For Healthspan’s vitamin C sustained release, they’ve used an especial process to mesh the vitamin C with plant cellulose. This means the tablets break down slowly, releasing the nutrients gradually into the body, ensuring a steady supply of vitamin throughout the day for round-the-clock support. For an extra boost, they’ve also added zinc, a mineral with a vast array of benefits, including the support to immune health, cognitive function and helping convert the food we eat into energy. Who is this for? Their vegan tablets are ideal for those who want round-the-clock support for their immune system, energy levels and overall wellbeing.
