As most everyone knows, Vitamin C is a necessary nutrient, primarily to prevent scurvy. It has a variety of other health benefits that haven’t necessarily been proven by studies. The proof is with how you feel and perform however, so most athletes in particular understand the benefits of supplementing with Vitamin C. Proteinco Canada formulated our Vitamin C differently than most with added Calcium.

Many athletes and active people deplete blood calcium levels during exercise. Additionally, high intensity exercise can drive your PH into being more acidic and calcium is the most available neutralizer. Therefore, adding calcium to our Vitamin C supplement make good sense for active consumers in particular. Taking Vitamin C prior to consuming red meats can help you absorb iron so it has advantages for muscle building too.

Don’t rely on the fact you get enough Vitamin C and calcium from your foods. Buy the best Vitamin C supplement in Canada online at ProteinCo.



This Vitamin C is formulated differently for specific reasons

ProteinCo formulated this top rated vitamin supplement with two forms of Vitamin C plus calcium. The benefits of this combination over taking each nutrient separately are extensive. Rather than having to take vitamins separately, it’s advantageous to formulate a specific vitamin and mineral combination. Our scientists studied the effects of ordinary ascorbic acid vs calcium ascorbate combined with different forms of Vitamin C. The result is our superior formula that has many advantages over and above ascorbic acid alone. In essence it becomes a time release Vitamin C so your body continues to benefit for hours. Taking ascorbic acid alone means you process it quickly and only receive the positive effects for a very short time.

Why Take ProteinCo’s Vitamin C

You will have a difficult time finding a vitamin supplement like our Vitamin C. We combine three forms of combined ascorbic acid and calcium to make it as powerful as possible. We first use ascorbic acid as the Vitamin C fast form for immediate absorption. Next we added calcium ascorbate for the time release Vitamin C for extended benefit. Lastly we added additional calcium ascorbate for the calcium component. All our research indicates this is the most effective combination of nutrients to assure ascorbic acid absorption and for preventing calcium leaching from your bones.

How much Vitamin C to take each day

This is not a high dose Vitamin C supplement. Some vitamins need to be taken with caution to avoid an overdose. Typically you never need to worry about a Vitamin C overdose however. We don’t recommend you take more than 1 capsule per day of our formula however. Because of the combinations we include, use caution with your dosage like you would with vitamins like vitamin A or iron.

When to take Vitamin C

This form of Vitamin C from ProteinCo should only be taken once per day. There is no real benefit from taking it at one time of day as opposed to another. The only consideration is for the increased iron absorption benefit of Vitamin C and ascorbic acid in particular. If you are trying to build muscle or feel you have an iron deficiency of any kind, taking Vitamin C about 30 minutes prior to eating your largest portion of red meat during the day would be optimal timing. For everyone else, experiment with different times per day to meet your specific training goals and to see if you notice a benefit taking this vitamin supplement at one time of day over another.


Mens’s Health

For any male athlete who is looking to build bigger and better muscle mass, Vitamin C can be a secret training weapon. Studies have shown it can help you absorb iron better which can enhance muscle development. Taking our ascorbic acid and calcium combination before eating red meat may help you absorb more iron from the meat. Experiment with this and it could become your new training secret for building massive muscles. In addition, men are notorious for not eating enough fruits and vegetables that contain high amounts of Vitamin C and calcium. Both of these nutrients are synergistically combined where they can benefit men’s health specifically for this reason. Don’t overlook this key supplement when you are training hard and trying to build muscle and fitness.


Women’s Health

For women in particular, the enhanced iron absorption possibilities can be a key to good health above all else. Many women suffer from an iron deficiency which seems to have a lot to do with their menstrual cycle. If you eat red meat, Proteinco Canada suggests you take our Vitamin C supplement prior to your largest portion each day. Women bodybuilders and figure competitors may see additional benefits from this protocol for better muscle development. Not getting enough calcium is another health concern than this Vitamin C supplement can help address. Don’t be fooled into thinking dairy products are good sources of calcium. While they do contain good amounts, your body doesn’t absorb them well if at all. This combined ascorbic acid and calcium ascorbate supplement is the best you will find in Canada we are certain.
