Super Cee has a base of ascorbic acid, but it is buffered or chelated meaning it is joined to a sodium (mineral) molecule, making it much easier on the gut. You can probably take a lot more of this too before you will get diarrhoea if you are looking to take a lot for any reason – each teaspoon is 5000mg and a teaspoon a day will be perfect in water. This is the one to take if you have digestive problems as it is milder, but no less effective. Both are water-soluble and BOTH are highly effective.
Super-Cee Vitamin C 250g
Super Cee is a powerful buffered form of vitamin C, sodium ascorbate useful for improving immunity, cancer prevention and heart health.
According to the Office of Dietary Supplements, taking ascorbic acid or sodium ascorbate can help with cancer prevention and treatment. Patients who take sufficient amounts of vitamin C have a lower chance of developing various forms of cancer like breast, lung and colon cancer. High vitamin C blood levels may shrink tumours and abnormal growths. Sodium ascorbate is an effective antioxidant that protects the cells from the harmful effects of free radicals. This supplement can even complement and enhance the effectiveness of other antioxidants. One teaspoon of Super Cee = 5g of Vitamin C – take ½ teaspoon twice daily or more as required.
The incidence of developing cardiovascular disease is significantly lower for patients taking sodium ascorbate, as described in the Office of Dietary Supplements. The antioxidant effects of this supplement contribute to cardiovascular health. Oxidative damage due to free radicals is one of the major causes of cardiovascular disease; this type of damage takes place in the body’s cells. Too many chemical changes in these cells increases the risk for chronic cardiovascular conditions. Smoking, which affects the blood vessels and circulation, worsens cardiovascular health. For this reason, smokers need to add vitamin C to their supplement regimen than the average person.
According to the American Optometric Association, one of the benefits of sodium ascorbate is good eye health. Vitamin C helps promote healthy capillaries and soft tissues which are abundant in the eyes. This vitamin also helps ocular blood vessels to work and function properly. With older patients, vitamin C lowers the risk for cataract formation and Age-Related Macular Degeneration or AMD, the two leading causes of vision loss. Regular intake of vitamin C through diet or nutritional supplements is important for the maintenance of good eye health.
