Vitamin C 1000 Gold is by far the most well-known vitamin. Vitamin C 1000 helps to maintain the resistance. However, vitamin C has way more lesser-known functions. Vitamin C is used in the formation of collages, which is important for the bones, for example. Vitamin C is important for the nervous system and energy metabolism as well. Vitamin C – as an oxidant – contributes to the protection of healthy cells. Fruit and vegetables are good sources of Vitamin C 1000 Gold. A varied diet provides the basic need of Vitamin C 1000 Gold. Athletes strain their bodies heavier. The ones who put their body to the test on a daily basis may choose to use additional Vitamin C 1000 Gold. Vitamin C 1000 Gold contributes to maintaining a good resistance during and after training and sports performances (at least 200 mg of vitamin C per day, in addition to the recommended daily intake of vitamin C). For that reason it is important for athletes and the coaching team to pay extra attention to Vitamin C 1000 Gold during heavy exercise.
It is a known phenomenon in the sports world: altitude training (a minimum of 3 weeks of altitude training). At high altitude the air pressure and oxygen pressure are lower. In order to deal with this, the body adjusts itself by producing more red blood cells. Vitamin C 1000 Gold increases the amount of iron in the blood. It could be useful to take a Vitamin C 1000 supplement during altitude training. The reason for using Vitamin C 1000 is that it increases the iron absorption.

Since December 2012 we are only allowed to publish product data sheets and product information that contain approved health claims by a European scientific organization – as a result of the European regulations on nutrient claims. This limits Virtuoos’ ability to provide information, as many health effects of diets and dietary supplements are (still) not recognized by this organization as sufficiently scientifically substantiated.
