Vitamin C (ascorbic acid) is considered an antioxidant of the widest spectrum of activity, fights free radicals and removes them from the body, supports intensive production of antibodies, increases the body's resistance to various infections, due to the resistance of the cells themselves to the penetration of pathogenic agents. Vitamin C is necessary for the successful growth and development of collagen fibers that form the connective tissue of bone cells, interarticular ligaments, blood vessels, brain, epithelium. With the participation of vitamin C, the body's regenerative resource increases significantly, wounds heal faster. It affects the synthesis of a number of hormones, it is vital for blood vessels, without it they become thin, brittle, brittle; regulates blood formation processes and normalizes capillary permeability, regulates metabolism, removes toxins, improves bile secretion, stimulates the endocrine glands - restores the exocrine function of the pancreas and thyroid gland.
For adults, the daily norm of vitamin C is 100 mg, for pregnant women - 130-150 mg, but diseases and stresses, high physical activity, exposure to toxic effects - alcohol intake and smoking - increase the need for vitamin C tens of times - in these cases at least 400 mg of ascorbic acid is required per day. The studies revealed that people in smoke-filled rooms experience oxidative stress, which accelerates the development of atherosclerosis, so passive smokers also need additional intake of vitamin C.
Increase the daily dose of vitamin C is required for permanent residence in hot or cold climates; those who take oral contraceptives that lower the level of vitamin C in the blood; elderly people, as ascorbic acid is absorbed worse by the body with age.
Increase and decrease the dose of vitamin C in the body gradually, do not shock it with the sudden introduction of a large amount of ascorbic acid.

“Enteric-coated Vitamin C in the intestine” is a dietary supplement recommended as an additional source of vitamin C.
Directions for use: Adults take 1 tablet 1 time per day with meals. Duration of admission is 1 month. If necessary, the reception can be repeated.
“CELEVIT Vitamin C” is an enteric tablet, each of which is coated with a special coating that can withstand the effects of gastric juice. This allows the CELEVIT Vitamin C tablets to pass through the stomach unchanged. The enteric coating of the tablet protects the gastric mucosa from the additional irritating effects of ascorbic acid. After entering the intestines, the tablet shell dissolves in an alkaline environment, and vitamin C begins to be absorbed by the body.
Vitamin C is an active participant in redox processes, prevents the oxidation of vitamins entering the body. Its role in the exchange of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates is important.
Vitamin C is water-soluble, it does not accumulate in the body, its excess is excreted by the excretory organs, therefore, vitamin C must be replenished daily. Vitamin C is destroyed by high temperatures, light and oxygen, so most of it is lost with all types of cooking.
