Vitamin C Supplement Facts
In humans, vitamin C acts to slow or prevent oxidation. Oxidation is a chemical reaction which releases harmful free radicals that cause cell damage.
Taken in large enough doses, vitamin C can help prevent a wide range of diseases.
One particular area that has courted some controversy is the beneficial role high doses could play in the management of cancers.
In 2007, a study of 39 terminal cancer patients concluded that vitamin C is a safe and effective therapy to use in improving the quality of life.
A year later, research from the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases found high doses of vitamin C reduced tumour weight and growth rate in 50 per cent of mice with ovarian, brain and pancreatic cancers.
The vitamin has also been associated with a range of benefits including lowering eye pressure in glaucoma patients, improving sperm count in infertile men, and shortening ICU (intensive care) treatment times for critically-ill surgical patients.
With Boost Pro you can quickly correct a vitamin C deficiency as all the ingredients work in synergy to deliver maximum benefit.
Sources of vitamin C can sometimes be low in this crucial nutrient depending on the health of the crops, soils and whether the plant sources were grown in a stressed environment, with pesticides and artificial growth stimulants and fertilisers. Some common sources are oranges and broccoli, however Acerola Cherries have been found to have high levels of this natural vitamin.
What is vitamin C good for?

GMS-ribose - is a naturally occurring pentose sugar best known for its role in maintaining strong and healthy heart beats, and is known to generate a physical energy boost. Perhaps the greatest and most important role of ribose to the athlete, is its contribution to the formation of adenosine triphosphate (ATP). ATP is the ‘primary energy source’ for muscular contraction. Without ribose, our cells cannot manufacture ATP. Large amounts of ATP are lost during periods of heavy, intense exercise or when cardiovascular conditions cause lowered oxygen levels in the cells. Ribose can help the heart and skeletal muscles recycle and replace ATP. Taking ribose before & after exercise can help salvage more of these important energy molecules crucial to performance and the prevent performance related fatigue.
Ribose not only helps top up ATP levels throughout the entire body, it also reduces the time it takes to restore ATP back to normal resting levels after intense exercise. This is great news for every athlete engaged in training and sport, because efficient recovery is the hallmark of excellent health and good physical condition. Case studies also attribute the use of ribose as a successful treatment for muscle cramping and the elimination of severe stiffness, pain and muscle soreness experienced in response to physical exertion.
MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) – is a sulphur packed molecule that has potent anti-inflammatory properties, which is key to athletes training and recovery. It is especially important to athletes recovering from injuries and works as a preventative to injury.
Quercetin – is a natural compound found in grapes that is a counterpart to Resveratrol. Its primary role is an agent that removes senescent cells from the body. Senescent cells are the dead cells that our bodies cannot get rid of and get left behind. Senescent cells can prevent wound/injury healing and reduce the time it takes athletes to recover. It is considered an important role in both antiaging and sports medicine.
