Vitamins are only strong together!
Crosslinking of vitamins C and D!
Projects are better designed not only for us humans when we are networked with the appropriately competent people. The same goes for the life of vitamins. The nutrients all play into each other like in an orchestra.
Vitamin C and vitamin D are essential nutrients for the human body and each play an important role in supporting health. There is some evidence that these two vitamins may work together to provide even more health benefits.
A 2014 study published in the "Journal of Investigative Medicine" examined the effects of vitamin C on vitamin D pathways in the human body. The results of this study suggest that vitamin C may increase the enzymes responsible for converting vitamin D to its active form. This can help the body use more of this important vitamin to perform its various functions.
Another study, published in the journal Nutrients in 2018 , examined the effects of vitamin C and vitamin D on the immune system. The results of this study suggest that these two vitamins can work together to support the immune system and reduce inflammation in the body.
There is also evidence that vitamin C and vitamin D may work together to support bone health. A 2019 study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition examined the effects of a combination of vitamin C, vitamin D, and calcium on bone health in older women. The results of this study suggest that when combined, these nutrients may help increase bone density and strength and reduce the risk of fractures.
Overall, there is evidence that vitamin C and vitamin D can work together to support the body's health. A balanced diet and targeted supplementation can help ensure that the body is adequately supplied with these important nutrients.
Did you know that
Why Vitamin C?
High immune competence. It strengthens the defense police in our body, so to speak.
The collagen biosynthesis (attention to all women :-)) is supported. Collagen is the basic substance of our body. It is the most abundant protein in the body. Therefore, this "substructure" is absolutely important for a stable and strengthened body.
Below is an excerpt of the effects (health claims) tested and scientifically proven by the EFSA:
Vitamin C :
- contributes to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue
- contributes to normal mental function
- contributes to the regeneration of the reduced form of vitamin E
- contributes to a normal energy-yielding metabolism
- contributes to the normal function of the immune system (physical defence).
- contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system
- helps protect cells from oxidative stress
- contributes to normal collagen formation for normal blood vessel function
- contributes to normal collagen formation for normal bone function
- contributes to normal collagen formation for normal cartilage function
- contributes to normal collagen formation for normal function of the teeth
- contributes to normal collagen formation for normal function of the gums
So you see, without vitamin C, we are definitely missing an important cog in life.
I wish you and your loved ones a vitamin C-rich time. And if the oranges and tangerines are no longer available, it can make sense to use the second best option. Ethically manufactured supplements. This was also my incentive to be able to offer you a vitamin C with vitamin E.
Kind regards, yours and yours Jutta Suffner
about the author
Dipl. Ing. (bio-med) Jutta Suffner
Jutta Suffner has been drawn to medicine since she was a child. After training as a medical-technical radiology assistant, she completed a degree in biomedicine and researched neurodegenerative diseases using magnetic resonance imaging in Canada. In Europe, the author worked for a world-renowned company in the field of ultrasound diagnostics for more than two decades.
In her early 30s, she received a horrific diagnosis and was hospitalized for almost a year. The prospects of delayed viral myocarditis were bleak and the beginning of nearly seven years of transformation and recovery. So she started researching again and found that the attitude to life, the lifestyle and other natural products can help for a faster healing process. Additional training as an alternative practitioner and research into a natural food supplement have accompanied her to her current vision that dying healthy is possible.
