Vitamin C is an antioxidant and helps the immune system. It is an organic molecule soluble in water and, since our body cannot synthesize it, it is important to take it through food and make it an essential component of our diet, thanks to the numerous benefits it brings.
There are various factors that can contribute to causing a deficiency of vitamin C in the body, primarily a diet low in fruit and vegetables; lifestyle and age also play a fundamental role: smoking, gas and pollution, drugs, stress, cold and mineral imbalances, which occur mainly in the elderly, can lead the body to not have enough vitamin C. A continuous lack of this vitamin in the diet increases the severity and duration of colds, infections and chronic diseases. The most common and obvious symptoms of a vitamin C deficiency are fatigue, lethargy, anemia, joint pain and muscle weakness, increased cardiovascular risk and gallstones.
What is vitamin C used for?
In an aqueous solution it works as an antioxidant, supports the immune system and protects cells, DNA, lipids and proteins from oxidative stress. It regulates liver metabolism, the activity of many hormones, endothelial functions and gastrointestinal absorption of iron.
It is also a very important ingredient for our beauty, for its antioxidant and DNA protection activity, especially when exposed to sunlight.
With optimal skincare and intense cleansing, it helps to brighten the complexion, stimulate microcirculation, reduce wrinkles and skin blemishes, relieve bags and dark circles and is one of the main ingredients of our Lagalene oil!
