Reductions in muscle soreness and markets of muscle damage have been noted with daily and pre-exercise vitamin C supplementation. While vitamin C has also been shown to reduce exercise-induced protein oxidation. Less muscle breakdown, via protein oxidation, may enable an athlete to maintain performance outputs during exercise and recover quicker following exercise.
A reduction in post-exercise circulating cortisol has been observed alongside vitamin C ingestion. As high circulating cortisol has links to immunosuppression, the potential vitamin C induced reduction of cortisol could also support immune function following exercise. Therefore, including a daily vitamin C supplement may elicit both health and performance benefits.
Vitamin C Chewables are tested under the Informed Sport Certification program. This approach involves testing every single batch of SIS finished product, which leaves the Company’s factory, screened against the 2018 World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) list. Banned substances including steroids are tested to the level of 10 Nanograms per gram, and stimulants to 100 Nanograms per gram. Batches (sampled at the beginning, during and end of each product batch) receive the recognised and respected Informed Sport* certificate and Science in Sport provides the documentation to athletes on request.
