Vitamin C in athletic performance

Whether you want to lose fat or build muscle - or both - an active lifestyle means you need Vitamin C! And a lot of it!

Natural Bridge Medical Centre are leaders in delivery of Intravenous (IV) Vitamin C for high performance athletes, body builders, high intensity trainers, weight loss or those getting into shape.

Everybody needs Vitamin C every day, whether you are a hard training or high performance athlete, or an everyday person that is just trying to get in shape.

Vitamin C can help protect the immune system and help athletes recover from intense training or competition.

Vitamin C is required for the growth and repair of tissues in all parts of your body. It is used to form collagen, a protein used to make skin, scar tissue, tendons, ligaments, and blood vessels. It is also essential for the healing of wounds, and for the repair and maintenance of people’s cartilage, bones, and teeth.

Vitamin C also helps with blood pressure by strengthening the walls of the arteries. It can also prevent damage to cells caused by aging or oxidative stress.

Vitamin C is important for connective tissue repair and is essential for the absorption of iron and the development of muscle tissue. Although beneficial to athletes participating in a variety of sports, Vitamin C is especially important to body builders whose training causes the most connective tissue damage.

For male athletes, Vitamin C will keep testosterone levels high by supporting a lower ratio of cortisol to testosterone. This will help your body keep up that high level of athletic performance and flexibility you require on a daily basis.

In the case of female athletes, Vitamin C reduces endometriosis and also helps to protect the breaking off of the capillaries that cause heavy blood flow for women with endometriosis during menstruation.

Women also benefit by taking C because it helps strengthen the liver function to balance the estrogen level during the menstrual cycle.

Sourcing Vitamin from fruit and vegetable is clearly the best way to get Vitamin C. For highly active or high performance athletes playing and training multiple times a week getting enough Vitamin C, naturally, is simply not possible.

Supplementation is essential to getting the best results with Vitamin C and intravenous (IV) infusions are the most affective and most efficient method.

Natural Bridge Medical Centre’s doctors and nurses specialise in providing expert Intravenous Vitamin C infusions and therapies and the very best nutritional advice and support to hard training or high performance athletes or for those just wanting to get into shape.
