Scientific Insight

A crucial part of good health and your training


Vitamin C is a vital part of both disease prevention and basic body building functions and is necessary for growing and repairing body tissues. Vitamin C can help the body to metabolize fats (1), as well as, plays an important role in metabolizing proteins for your muscle growth (2,3). People with joints problems can benefit from Vitamin C intake since this vitamin takes part in development and maintenance of bones and cartilage (2,3). It can act as an antioxidant, preventing muscle damage from oxidative stress (4).


It is an immune system booster, enhancing production of white blood cells that fight infection. It can be supportive for recovering, whether from infection, injury, illness or surgery.


Studies show that the vitamin can be supportive for a number of illnesses and conditions, including heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, osteoarthritis, obesity and weight loss, cataract, age-related macular degeneration, diabetes and Alzheimer’s disease and other types of dementia.

Everybody needs Vitamin C, especially those who train hard.***


Why is it a must for your diet?


Vitamin C is water-soluble and cannot be stored by your body, so it must be supplied daily through either diet or supplements.

We are using USP Grade Calcium Ascorbate


Calcium Ascorbate provides the most concentrated, buffered form of Vitamin C.  It is derived from calcium ascorbate, a non-acidic form of powdered vitamin C that is much gentler on the stomach and teeth than non-buffered vitamin C.


Unique Sustained Release MEGATAB®  for 24 hours coverage**


Double-blind, crossover study, designed to determine tissue levels of vitamin C (ascorbic acid) in 50 healthy volunteers, clearly shows that the time-release formulation was far better absorbed than regular vitamin C and thus enabled greater amounts of vitamin C to reach the tissues (5).


MVP  Biotech® guarantees 100% 24 hours release** by the unique MEGATAB® TECHNOLOGY
