Frequently Asked Questions
What are the impacts of vitamin C deficiency?
Deficiencies in vitamin C ultimately result in impaired immunity and a higher vulnerability to infection. Vitamin C cannot be endogenously synthesised by humans and thus, requires an external source (diet or supplementation) to be obtained. Additionally, vitamin C is a water soluble compound, meaning it has a poor ability to be retained by the body and requires regular consumption.
What role does zinc play in protecting immunity?
Zinc is a mineral co-factor in hundreds of enzymatic reactions and essential to the normal function of the immune system. Zinc is an essential mineral to keep the immune system strong. For athletes, this is especially important, since being sidelined with a viral infection or other illness can mean missing valuable training time.
Why does a high training load leave you susceptible to illness?
Highly active individuals are vulnerable to illness due to the increased physiological stress incurred by their body, as well as the depletion of resources and energy needed for muscle repair. Supplementing vitamin C and zinc ensures exercise does not deplete the range of nutrients needed for the maintenance of a healthy immunity.
When's the best time to take vitamin C and zinc for performance outcomes?
Taken at the very first sign of illness will give you the best chance to reduce both the length and severity of any cold or related ailment. We also see many professional athletes cycle onto this supplement when training load is extremely high (e.g preseason) as a precautionary measure for compromised immunity through physical exertion. Zinc and vitamin C are both water soluble so can be taken on an empty stomach, it’s also best to avoid taking this around any meals or drinks containing dairy.
