The Body Attack Vitamin C-Depot plus Zinc contains L-Ascorbic acid and the mineral zinc. Both nutrients contribute to the functionality of the immune system and protect cells from oxidative stress, which is caused by, e.g. high physical exertion during sports or mental stress.
Athletes with strong physical exertion or people, who do not take enough Vitamin C through the diet, can prevent inadequate supply of Vitamin C by taking the supplementary product. The additionally contained zinc can support the energy metabolism.
In the absence or deficiency of ascorbic acid, the normal collagen formation may not function properly, which is why an adequate supply of ascorbic acid should be ensured. Ascorbic acid is needed in the body for important enzymatic metabolic processes. For example, ascorbic acid keeps the enzyme hydroxylase for synthesis of carnitine active, which plays a key role in the energy and fat metabolism. In the body, it promotes the absorption of iron and thus, indirectly regulates the transfer of oxygen to the body cells. It also prevents the oxidation of iron at the same time, so that the cells of the body can be protected from oxidative stress. Ascorbic acid can even recover its associate vitamin E, if it has been oxidised by free radicals. The body also requires ascorbic acid for the formation of neurotransmitters (e.g. serotonin) to maintain the normal function of the nervous system and memory. Thus, it can also help reduce the tiredness and fatigue, particularly during periods of physical and mental exertion.
It is dependent on adequate intake of ascorbic acid since the body cannot produce ascorbic acid endogenously. Fresh fruits and vegetables are rich in ascorbic acid, but they lose much of it as soon as it is cooked. Therefore, eating at least 3 servings of raw fruits and vegetables a day is recommended. Should there be deficiency, Body Attack Vitamin C-Depot plus Zinc may be a good supplement. A capsule contains 300 mg ascorbic acid. There is delayed release of the L-Ascorbic acid in the body. Thus, the body is supplied with ascorbic acid for a certain time period.
What are the other substances still active in Body Attack Vitamin C-Depot plus Zinc?
The Body Attack product Vitamin C-Depot also provides the mineral zinc, which is involved in more than 300 enzymatic metabolic processes. The anabolic hormone insulin is synthesised in the beta cells of the pancreas. Zinc is a component of the storage hormone and is responsible for transporting the nutrients from the bloodstream to the muscle and body cells. Therefore, zinc can contribute to normal carbohydrate and fatty acid metabolism.
Body Attack Vitamin C-Depot plus Zinc can support the energy metabolism of athlete, in particular, who face increased energy expenditure and zinc deficiency. The Body Attack Vitamin C-Depot plus Zinc has a quantity of 5 mg zinc sulphate per capsule.
Zinc could be a useful supplement in bodybuilding, since the minerals can contribute to normal protein synthesis and maintenance of normal testosterone levels. The Vitamin C-Depot plus Zinc is also suitable for women, because zinc can contribute to the maintenance of hair, skin and nails.
