Vitamin C requirements are increased by 100 mg, in athletes, during infections, stress or physical and intellectual fatigue and also for pregnant breastfeeding women and smokers. Vitamin C can be obtained through food or food supplements
Prolonged vitamin deficiency It can cause scurvy. Disease which hardly existed any more but which resurfaces in the industrialized countries because of the changes of diet, poor in fruits and vegetables.

The opinion of our professionals
Advice of the nutrition expert
"Vitamin C is an essential part of our diet. Although our needs are largely met if we have a balanced and varied diet, supplementation can only be an additional advantage! Indeed, its antioxidant power makes it possible to counter the effects of oxidative stress, very present in our current societies. For athletes, it is very interesting to use in supplementation because the needs are increased. Indeed, training puts the body under intense stress and causes not only a rise in cortisol but also the formation of free radicals. Thus, having an additional supply of vitamin C makes it possible to limit the effects of free radicals which, I remind you, are harmful both for cellular aging and also for muscle recovery. In addition, vitamin C helps in the synthesis of collagen, a protein essential for the health of joints, ligaments, tendons, bones and skin appendages. Athletes put a lot of strain on these tissues, and collagen supplementation is often recommended to them. So taking vitamin C can only help prevent the breakdown of these tissues. The advantage of this supplement is that the intake of rose hips provides a source of natural vitamin C and other bio-active compounds such as flavonoids, phenols and other antioxidant active ingredients. "
"Vitamin C is arguably one of the most popular supplements today. The latter is known above all for its antioxidant effect and its benefits on the immune system. Taking vitamin C is strongly recommended for people who consume no or very little fruit and vegetables on a daily basis.
