What is Vitamin C?

Vitamin C 500mg by HSN Essentials is a food supplement that provides the organism with an extra dose of Vitamin C. It is one of the most secure and efficient nutrients that we can purchase.

Vitamin C, also known as ascorbic acid, belongs to the group of hydrosoluble vitamins of the B complex.

What are the properties of Vitamin C?

Vitamin C plays an essential role in the transportation of fats in the cells as well as the metabolism of cholesterol (prevention of calculi). It reinforces the immune system and helps the body to avoid viral infections, bacterial infections and toxicity.

Another of the noteworthy functions of Vitamin C is its role in the condition of iron in the body, as ascorbic acid boosts the absorption of this mineral, essential for the correct oxygenation of the tissues, as well as mitigating any possible cases of anaemia.

It reduces the hardening process of arteries, which avoids the formation of clots in arteries and veins, heart attacks, strokes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol.

Benefits of Vitamin C


Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that also protects vitamins A and vitamins E against oxidation, and also some components of the B complex (thiamine, riboflavin, folic acid and pantothenic acid). This protection is against free radicals, that cause a oxidative damage at a cellular level, involving practically any tissue from our body.

Produce collagen

Vitamin C intervenes in the formation of collagen, and therefore its consumption is indispensable for the optimal growth and maintenance of bones, teeth, gums, joints, ligaments, tendons and blood vessels, as well as to help repair fractures and heal wounds. Collagen is an essential component of the connective tissue, that plays a key role in healing wounds.

Common cold

Although Vitamin c has been for a long time a natural remedy for the common cold, research shows that for most people, vitamin C supplements do not reduce the risk of catching a common cold. However, people who take Vitamin C supplements regularly could have shorter colds or with milder symptoms.

Vitamin C excess

Taking too much can produce side effects such as diarrhea, nausea, and stomach cramps.

Vitamin C Deficiency

According to the degree of deficit, some symptoms are more noticeable than others. If there is a slight deficiency, some of the symptoms that can appear are: fatigue, tiredness, lack of appetite, drowsiness and insomnia, feeling of decay, irritability, low resistance to infections and petechiae (minor capillary bleeds).

If a greater deficit is observed, there may be cases of scurvy, characterized by the weakening of collagen structures, resulting in generalized capillary haemorrhage.

Causes of Vitamin C Deficiency

Although meeting the minimum requirements of this vitamin may be quite feasible, it should be noted that under certain conditions, deficiency may develop due to: inadequate food storage and preparation, gastrointestinal disorders, stress and intense exercise, infections, smoking, diabetes, pregnancy and lactation.

Who can take Vitamin C 500mg?

  • Anyone looking to achieve the recommended daily dose of vitamin C.
  • People who smoke or are exposed to cigarette smoke (passive smoking).
  • People eating a very limited variety of foods.
  • People with certain pathologies related to malabsorption of nutrients.
  • Highly recommended for athletes to help fight the effects of free radicals.
