5 Benefits of Vitamin C

Not only does Ultima Replenisher electrolyte powder help keep you hydrated with electrolytes and trace minerals, it is also packed with vitamin C and zinc. Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps our body in many ways: It’s responsible for the growth and repair of all tissues involved in healing of wounds, it's involved in the formation of collagen, and helps with the maintenance of strong bones, cartilage and teeth.

So, let’s dive a bit deeper and take a look at the ways Vitamin C helps support a healthy body. 🍊

1. Helps Manage High Blood Pressure

In the United States nearly one third of all adults suffer from high blood pressure. This is important to manage because high blood pressure can put us all at risk of heart disease. Vitamin C helps regulate high blood pressure by helping to relax the blood vessels that carry blood to and from the heart.

2. Helps to Prevent Iron Deficiency

Iron is an essential part of making red blood cells and transporting oxygen throughout our bodies. Consuming Vitamin C can help our bodies improve the absorption of iron therefore, improving function.

3. Helps to Boost Immunity

Consuming Vitamin C can help strengthen the immune system because it encourages the production of white blood cells. White blood cells are the cells that help fight off infection.

4. Helps Fight off Free Radicals

Because Vitamin C helps our body’s white blood cells function better, the cells can then help by fighting off free radicals.

5. Helps Prevent Memory Loss

Over 35 million adults globally have difficulty with memory loss and it can lead to health issues as they age. Vitamin C can help prevent memory loss due to aging because antioxidants help prevent the damage to brain cells.

Since Vitamin C is water soluble, it is not something that is well-stored in the body and needs to be taken through daily food and supplementation.

The recommended daily allowance of Vitamin C is anywhere from 75mg to 120mg for adults 19 years and over. Ultima Replenisher has 100mg Vitamin C which supplies 110% of your daily recommended dose. (For smokers, an additional 35mg above RDA is recommended because smoking can deplete Vitamin C levels.)

More great reasons to both stay on top of your hydration needs with Ultima Replenisher by getting the proper balance of electrolytes, trace minerals and getting that much needed boost of Vitamin C your body craves.
